Merritt Island offers many of the best features of Space Coast Beachside and Mainland living. Similar to the Beachside communities, the Merritt Island lifestyle is a bit more casual and focused on the waterfront. Located between the Banana River and the Indian River, Merritt Island benefits from delightful waterviews and water related activities. Yet, Merritt Island residents also benefit from an expansive shopping and business sector like the mainland communities.
The northern end of Merritt Island is home to the Space Center and a larger wildlife refuge, while the central and southern part are located just west of the Beachside communities.
The Merritt Island real estate market is always very strong, and features many luxury waterfront homes. It is ideal for people into boating and other water sports and activities. There are also numerous condos and more affordable homes., many with stunning water views. Merritt Island homes continue to be in demand due to demand by families looking for good schools, retirees looking for a place in the sun, and second home buyers.
