Marco Island Building Trends

If you have ever been to Marco Island, Florida you know it’s paradise. Being able to build a home there is ideal if you love the tropics and a little bit of privacy. Homes can range from smaller 1 bedroom 1 bath beach bungalow style homes to multiple room multi-million dollar mansions.

Property prices can vary greatly depending on the age of the home, size, and many other factors. Lots of land can go anywhere from $35,000 all the way up to $5,000,000. The only true way to get exactly what you dreamed of is to go ahead and build it yourself.

The inclusions in building can vary depending on if you have a waterfront lot. If it requires pilings if the lot is empty or you are tearing down an older home to make way for the new… If you are waterfront how sturdy is your current seawall? Does it need to be replaced? If you need new sewer lines you may also need to consider the assessment.

All of these details are why choosing your builder is vital. With Harden Custom Homes we have been building on Marco Island for over 40 years and know the ins and outs to get your home built expediently and with ease sliding through any red tape.

With its beautiful blue-green waters, sunny sky, and an endless array of colorful flowers, trees, and wildlife it’s the stuff movies are made of. Accessible only by bridge, Marco Island is exclusive and has its own little sub-economy going. Its a hide away from the rest of the world. A hideaway you can buy a piece of and make your own.

While there is no single style of home here, Spanish tile roofing, stucco walls, and big windows are prevalent in order to bring the scenic outdoors in. Natural light, lanais, vaulted ceilings, and lofts are abundant in today’s builds.

Kayaking, tennis, fishing, biking, walking, swimming, sunbathing, Marco has it all. Friendly people, great restaurants and nightlife, a calm Florida atmosphere and low crime rate. Its a little piece of heaven.
