The strategic location which the community enjoys coupled with its short rental minimum has increased the property’s rental potential. Sea Shell condos for sale have a rental minimum of one to seven days.

It is common for buyers to find residences that measure an estimated 1,100 square feet with an asking fee of around $450,000 to just below $500,000.
