Summer vacations by a tranquil lake are a dream many of us enjoy for just a week at a time. If you’ve considered making a lakeside home a permanent reality, look before you leap.
There are a number of important considerations when choosing the perfect lakeside paradise. Realtor.com offers 9 things to consider before you seal the deal. Factors include whether you’d like a lake that allows gas-powered motorboats, or if you’d prefer something quieter. If you like to swim, look for clean water without a lot of muck or tall grasses. Consider the shoreline and how erosion or climate change could affect it in the future. Check for the position of the sun at different times of day to be sure you get the sunsets, sunrises or shade you prefer. Internet connectivity, the ability to rent your property and seasonal upkeep are other considerations. Read the article here – then get ready to take the plunge.
