Houses in Crystal Beach

Rental Income

Tourist flock to Crystal Beach to enjoy the turquoise waters and sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. The area's close proximity to world-class dining and shopping opportunities, along with the paved walking path that runs along Scenic Gulf Drive, make houses in Crystal Beach highly desired by buyers and renters alike. In fact, many properties here can generate between $25k and $75k each year in rental income, while some beachfront homes in Crystal Beach gross in excess of $150,000 annually.

Home Styles

In terms of architecture, you'll find classic beachfront cottages as well as Mediterranean and Contemporary designs. Many homes are multi-level, have swimming pools, and include separate living quarters sometimes referred to as cabanas or mother-in-law suites. Nestled among the native vegetation, Crystal Beach homes provide a traditional beach experience with ample privacy.

Crystal Beach homes are situated in neighborhoods like Clipper Cove, Kokomo, Villages of Crystal Beach, and set along streets named either after fish (Cobia, Barracuda, Stingray, Tarpon, etc.) or the books of the Bible (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).

Crystal Beach Property Values

Crystal Beach property values are important to both buyers and sellers and depend on many factors such as:

  • Proximity to the beach
  • Age, size, number of bedrooms
  • Finish, quality, and design
  • Building materials
  • Exterior features such as swimming pools and cabanas

Land in resort areas is always in high demand. As a result, extremely small lots are common in most beach communities. However, property in Crystal Beach is the exception to this rule, with lots typically in the 50 x 150 ft. range. Lots of this size provide plenty of space to build a large house, including garage and swimming pool.
