Congratulations on your decision to move to the Eastern Shore! When you are interested in living on the water, there are some things you need to keep in mind. Although it’s much more common to do this on the Eastern Shore, that doesn’t mean that your home can’t have a dockside feel to it anywhere else in Maryland. Even so, here’s what you should keep in mind!
Getting your bulkhead inspected is always a good idea. This wall helps protect your home against water damage, if it fails, then your home could be flooded. Don’t let that nightmare scenario happen to you! It also helps prevent soil and sand erosion, both of which can affect the water around your new home. Building new bulkheads or having old ones replaced can take up a significant amount of your budget, so you will need all the funding you can get your hands on!
That is one of the reasons why it is so important to get the financing that you can get approved for; without it, you might not be able to make your waterfront home meet or exceed your dreams. The sooner you can get the financing you need, the sooner you can move into your new waterfront home and enjoy all of the leisure activities that living around the water can offer you!
Set Up Your Utilities
You’ll also need to set up your utilities. It can be more complicated to get all of the normal utilities you would expect to have, such as steady electricity, clean water, and phone service and television and internet hookups. Don’t forget about a septic system which might not be there on the lot that you chose.
Plan for Changes
Looking forward to the future doesn’t only mean making your dreams a reality. Along the way, you’ve got to plan for any changes to your lifestyle that could happen. Maybe you will need more room, or you will want to age in place. Making any changes that you need to should always remain a viable option.
