Lighthouses for Sale
While the amount of people who have an interest in lighthouses seem to be a steady number due to the fact that lighthouse enthusiasts are a dying breed in the opinion of some, while there is still quite a large number of people in younger generations taking an interest in them. Whatever the case, if a poll was to be taken by the 100,000s of people who visit lighthouses every year, most if not all of them would probably be interested in owning their own lighthouse. Such an idea may seem like a dream or a long shot, but there is a group of people who can actually make this a reality. Most of us are not in a position financially to purchase a lighthouse, although some of them sell for as cheap as $4,000 all the way up into $1,000,000s or more. The reason being, in most cases, due to the fact that people are simply unaware that lighthouses are regularly being sold. Another common factor as to why the average person does not own a lighthouse is because they do not have the resources to own and maintain such a structure. It is not just about putting up the money to buy the property, but also the time it takes to properly care for the lighthouse and in some cases make sure that the maintenance is held at a certain standard. Whether you are in a position to buy a lighthouse or not, this section is dedicated entirely to lighthouses for sale by individuals, as well as the federal government. Even if you have no plan of ever buying a lighthouse, this section might be both interesting and useful to you due to the fact that you can be kept up to date with lighthouses that are currently on the market and being sold.
There are 100s of lighthouses that are no longer being used or receiving the time and attention they need, and for that reason are just sitting and deteriorating. What is good to know is that many of these owners, and even the federal government(in reference to the the United States), are selling these structures to enthusiast who are both able and interested in buying these often historic lighthouses. This is beneficial for everyone involved for a lot of reasons, but here are just a few. First of all, if a lighthouse is just sitting and getting run down… with time the natural elements around the lighthouse will literally make it fall to the ground with time. What the means is that anyone who lives or visits that area will not be able to visit, view, or appreciate that particular lighthouse, and if you ask anyone who cares about lighthouses their opinion on that… that just isn’t fair. Instead it would seem logical that a person who owns a lighthouse would be interested in selling it so they no longer have to worry about it, and they can be happy to know that the new owner could possibly be someone who could make big plans for the light station. The second benefit of lighthouses being sold is that a new owner can come in and fix things up so that it is safe for men, women, and children can visit the light station and make memories for many years to come. Buying a lighthouse could also be an excellent business opportunity for the new owner since they could turn the property to a regular or season tourist attraction. Many people decide to start a museum for their particular lighthouses and many times will allow the grounds to be rented out for events like weddings, meetings, and other events. In extreme cases where there is a lot of money to work with, new owners who buy lighthouses turn it into a bed and breakfast or even a hotel. The last thing to consider is all of the people who love lighthouses and how they are literally emotionally, mentally, and even at times physically disturbed when they get news that a lighthouse in their area is going to be demolished. Personally, there is nothing like planning a trip to visit a lighthouse and upon arrival finding out that the ground have been closed indefinitely.
Anytime someone buys real estate it can be a process that is both time consuming, and not always easy. When one considers getting into the business of trying to find a lighthouse for sale, at the time that this website was being constructed there was no website online, and not even a section of page of an existing site, that was dedicated entirely to listing lighthouses for sale. For that reason we have a category dedicated entirely to lighthouse realty and lighthouse real estate to make the search easier for anyone who is looking to purchase a lighthouse. We are not currently associated with any realtor in the business of selling lighthouses.
