If you have been looking forward to buying a house with waterfront property and your real estate agent shows you a home that you really like, then you may want to ask some questions regarding that water you will have easy access to. Some of these questions may determine whether or not you make an offer, while others may just make it easier for you to get acquainted with things upon your move-in. Here are a few questions to keep in mind:

How high up can the water come onto the property?

You can't always tell by looking just how far the water can come onto your property during a good rainy season or even in the case of a flood. However, this is definitely something you want to know because it can help you with regards to deciding where you want to have sheds put up or other outbuildings built on the property. It can also help you to decide just where to put fencing and even where to park that antique vehicle you are in the middle of restoring.

What types of fish will you have access to?

While knowing what types of fish you will be able to fish for may not make or break the deal, it can help you out if you are looking forward to getting in some good fishing as soon as you move in. You will know just what types of bait and tackle you want to be fully prepared with when you move into your new home. This way, as soon as you are settled in you can head down to the water and catch yourself a good dinner.

What types of predators are drawn to that water?

You may not be familiar with the types of predators that the area you will be moving to are prone to see. You want to find this out so you can do your best to deter them from coming too far onto your land where they get too close for comfort. In some areas you may only be dealing with deer that come and peacefully drink from the water. However, in other regions you may find yourself dealing with everything from bears to alligators and this is information you need to be armed with so you can start researching ways to keep them at a distance and what to do if confronted by a predator.
