Deep Water Real Estate
Deep Water Real Estate Deep Water is a low country term that qualifies if the depth of water is sufficient for docking a boat at low tide. Beaufort tides vary 5 to 7 feet and given a spring tide or local storm can be greater. Local realtors define a deep-water lot as having 3 ft. minimum water depth at low tide. The depth of water determines the value and desirability for boaters as well as a dock, boat lift and/or float or a permit to build each. The walkway and length to reach the boat are factors as well. Views, prevailing breezes and orientation of the site are important as well. Local waterways vary in the low country significantly from rivers, oceanfront, sound front, large creeks and small creeks but each are individually unique and extraordinarily scenic.
