One could say that the rivers, lakes, Gulf and ocean are the true locations, locations, locations. Owners of land bordering water sources, especially those properties on the coast and the Gulf, enjoy appreciable investment values. Our waterways are incredibly important. They provide rich, abundant environments that encourage tourism, commerce and vibrant life for people and animals.
Sadly, waterways are often neglected and polluted. Since Florida’s waterways are often priceless backdrops to or settings for homes and businesses, and realtors are experts in examining locations, it makes sense that realtor teams are embarking on a huge statewide effort to clean up waterways of all sizes. From springs and streams to South Walton County’s 15 dune lakes and the Gulf of Mexico, thousands of realtors around the state will spread out and help with the cleanup effort. The event is called Florida Realtors’ Clean Up Florida Waters.
Coastal Luxury agents will join the team of real estate professionals to do their part. The agency’s goal is to provide crucial, local assistance by cleaning the beaches and dune lakes along Scenic Highway 30A and the Gulf. Even better news is that anyone can help. Coastal Luxury Owner/Broker Erin Oden invites the public to join in this important endeavor. Anyone who would like to work with or contribute to the team should email the Coastal Luxury office. Individuals may also pitch in on their own and send photos to Coastal Luxury or post direct using #CoastalLuxury. We will celebrate everyone’s hard work by posting images and commentary to our Coastal Luxury social media accounts. The list of reasons to keep waterways clean stretches far beyond tourism. Anyone who lives, does business, owns property or appropriately uses the natural resources of Florida benefits from a clean, beautiful system of waterways. Th e waterways are the obvious lifeblood of the fishing industry, boaters, scientists, shipping merchants, and so many more, and they need our waterways to be healthy and clean.
Let us never forget the animals. As evidence, the project’s logo is a sea turtle. Our eco system hosts millions of fascinating animals and their food sources. Coastal Luxury agents consider it an honor to spend the day cleaning up these animals’ homes, and they hope others across the state will act.
