When selecting your Marco Island lot, keep in mind the direction of the lot. South facing properties are by far the most in demand as the lanai will have sun all day. If you prefer more shade, then a North facing lot may be a better choice for you.

A nice water view is another sought after feature. Sometimes it makes sense to buy an existing home in order to get the view you want, then tear the home down and build new. There is a savings on impact fees if building new within two years of tearing down the old home.

If the sea wall is an original wall, it will need to be replaced before building. Keep this cost in mind when purchasing a lot. Local marine contractors can do a sea wall inspection for you.

A boat will have to go under a bridge in order to get to the Gulf of Mexico from an indirect water lot. Most bridges have about 10′ of clearance at mean tide, be sure and check out bridge clearances if that is important to you. Direct water access properties have no bridges to go under.
