Introduction to Clearwater Beach Real Estate
Clearwater Beach real estate options includes the Clearwater Beach, Island Estates, and Sand Key communities. The area is primarily composed of condominium communities, but there are also beautiful waterfront, and non waterfront single family homes available. Condo options can be found in all three areas. The waterfront single family homes are primarily on Clearwater Harbor/the Intracoastal in Island Estates and the Moorings on Sand Key. Off water single family homes can be found in the northern part of Clearwater Beach. See what Wikipedia has to say about Clearwater Beach.

The Sand Key Condos offer 12 beachfront communities directly on Sand Key Beach, and 8 Intracoastal communities on Clearwater Harbor/the Intracoastal.

The homes are directly on Clearwater Harbor with access to the Intracoastal waterway and the Gulf of Mexico via Clearwater Pass just two miles north of the Moorings.

That’s a tough question to answer because Clearwater Beach real estate is popular for lots of great reasons! The first thing people think about is the sparkling waters and white sands of Clearwater Beach located on the Gulf of Mexico. Clearwater Beach has been voted one of the top beaches in the world by critics as well as by public surveys like the recent USA Today Online Reader Survey. The Beach beautiful, and there also is lots of things to do and see on Clearwater Beach. The Pier 60 area is a very popular spot on the beach. During the day you can fish off the pier, stroll around, view arts or crafts, visit the restaurants and bars, or just hand out. In the evenings its fun to watch the street performers, see the art displays, or watch the Sunset Cinema with its daily movies seven days a week, weather permitting. Check out their website to see more information and a schedule of events.
There are lots of great restaurants and bars. One of our favorites is Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill directly on the sands of Clearwater Beach right next door to the popular luxury Sandpearl Residences. The Clear Sky Cafe is popular with the locals for breakfast, or really any meal. The Clear Sky Cafe is located right off Gulf Blvd next door to the luxurious Mandalay Beach Club beachfront condos and across the street from the popular Belle Harbor Clearwater Beach Condos which is right on the waters of the Intracoastal.
And isn’t it great to have an average low of 55 in January and a high of 75 degrees while the rest of the nation is freezing?
One of the other reasons Clearwater Beach real estate is so popular is that there are lots of activities nearby and things to see and visit. Sand Key Park is just south of the main Clearwater Beach area, and just north of all the Sand Key Condos . Sand Key Park is one of my personal favorites in the area. It has a great beach, convenient picnic areas, dog parks for different sized dogs, several fishing piers on Clearwater Pass, playgrounds and more! Honeymoon Island is another wonderful Pinellas County park near Clearwater Beach. Honeymoon Island has one of the only two dog beaches in Pinellas County. The park has beautiful beaches, and some fantastic fishing. You can rent a kayak, take a walk on the nature trails, or walk your dog on the beach. While you are at Honeymoon Island, take the some time to visit unspoiled Caladesi Island which is directly north of your Clearwater Beach real estate. The park features an unspoiled beach and kayak trails. If you want to experience a different kind of Florida, take a drive down the beach road to Pass-A-Grill Beach and enjoy its pristine waters, and older homes, or sit in one of the beach-side restaurants like the Brass Monkey and watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.
Bright House Field is just seven miles away and you can watch the Philadelphia Phillies train. Or go to Tropicana Field in close-by St Pete, and watch the hometown Rays play. Or spend a day or evening visiting charming St Pete.
We think two things are important in your search for a Clearwater Beach real estate. The first thing is to use a local real estate agent who knows the area. They can save you time, help negotiate the best price, and most importantly, help you find the right real estate option that you will love for years to come. The second thing is to make sure your Realtor (real estate agent) has a well thought out process to save you time and money and help you find the best real estate option for your needs.
