The Allure of Lake Living
Dreaming of lazy weekends away from your work week? Do you yearn for a home filled with friends and family? Want to learn to water ski? Lake life means something different to everyone. Because the South offers so many options, living a lake lifestyle can be attained at almost every price point, whether you are looking for a weekend escape or a full time residence.
Buying Lake Property
Purchasing waterfront property is much different than purchasing a residential home. Factors include primary residence or weekend getaway? Proximity to “town?” Work from the lake? Plan to entertain? What water activities do you like or plan and do you own a boat? Will small children or older family members be staying with you?
The elements of lifestyle have always been present in purchase decisions, but rarely discussed and cataloged with traditional lake buying criteria such as home features, price, location, water depth, and community offering. Thus, we begin by understanding your lifestyle elements and then explore possibilities. Our team will consult with you on your Lifestyle Essentials to help find the very best options in lake living tailored specifically for you. So stop dreaming, one step closer to your waterfront lifestyle starts HERE.

Discovering Value in Lake Property
Homes around the lake typically only have two things in common: a roof and water which is somewhere behind the house. The factors which affect lake values include:
- Slope of the lot
- Depth of the water along the shoreline
- Access to “deep water”
- Waterfront views
- Type of neighborhood
- Dock zone (green, yellow, red)
- Dock in place (platform, covered slip dock)
