What we have here is a perfect opportunity to own an affordable piece of waterfront property. This is a 2 bedroom 1 and a half bath mobile home that was built in 1960. There is an attached garage and addition with a great view of Boot Key Harbor and the canal. The property is already connected to the city sewer.
There is 50′ of deep water dock space with a concrete seawall. The wooden pilings were replaced recently and are in great shape. Perfect for your trips out to Sombrero Reef, Washer Woman shoal or popping under the 7 mile bridge to get to the Gulf of Mexico.
The location is ideal as it gives you protected dock space with easy access to all the main water spots quickly. You can bring your sailboat, catamaran or power boat and dock just steps from your door.
The mobile home itself is in rough shape, but could be fixed and repaired in place. The electrical would need to be upgraded and the floor needs to be replaced. The exterior could be fixed relatively easily with some hardi-board. The Kitchen needs to be replaced entirely. Some folks would look at this as a problem, I see it as a great opportunity. Too often I see buyers come into a home and try to save a few dollars by keeping cabinets or fixtures that really shouldn’t be saved. This provides you the ability to design and create the perfect space for your needs.
The other option that this gives, because we already have a structure on the property, you already have the building allocation. You could remove the existing building and build a brand new home in it’s place. This can be done quicker than buying a regular piece of vacant land because this property bypasses the ROGO (Rate of Growth Ordinance) requirement. There are already some stilted homes in the neighborhood. This would be give you a beautiful view of the harbor and provide covered parking underneath the home as well.
