The greater Tampa area is full of stunning bodies of water and as such there are many water front AND water VIEW homes all around the greater Tampa area.

What Classifies as a Water VIEW Home?
A water view home is just as the name implies, a home that has a view of the water from somewhere on the property. However, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to what can be considered as a water view home. A water view in a listing really could mean many different things. How much of a view you get from the property really is subjective to the person listing or describing the home. Including the words water view on a listing could mean the water is visible between two homes that are between the home listed and the water, it could be a peek-a-boo view through foliage, or it could be a glamorous and unobstructed panoramic view of the water.
Two things to make sure you check into with a water view home: you see the view for yourself in person, and you are aware of any possible changes that could happen with the view in the future. In the case of a view that is over or through vegetation and local plants, this view can easily change as the plants mature, you could end up seeing less and less of a view if the area vegetation is not routinely trimmed.
Another thing to make sure you check into before purchasing a water view home when it comes to the possibility of future changes, is the building/construction/zoning laws and codes around the property. If there are homes between the property and the gorgeous view, you want to make sure that those homes are not able to add another floor or other items that can obstruct the view. You also want to make sure that an investor cannot come in and tear down an existing structure or purchase vacant surrounding land and then put up a higher new property that would ruin your view.
Luckily there are many areas around the state of Florida that protect a home owner's right to retain the water view for which they purchased their home.
