Examples

  • But you don't even need a residence attached to make money: At the Ocean Reef Club in the Florida Keys, a dockominium big enough for a 100-footer sold last year for $2 million; it had sold for $700,000 in 2004.

    Cashing In on Real Estate, It's Still Possible

  • There is a free boat launch just down the street, only three blocks from numerous marinas and across the street from the dockominium storage facility, the Carrabelle Boat Club, and a full service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner just steps away from the Inn. Our brand new Inn has reasonable rates and a friendly accommodating staff and the Inn has its own dockage for your boat available to our guests on the Carrabelle river next to the bridge on Highway 98, just a half mile from the Inn.
