November New and Reduced Lake Properties

fall-photo

While fall signals the changing of seasons, for many it also signals the time to buy a lake property! When it comes to buying a lakefront property, timing can be everything..October right up until the Christmas holiday, is a great time to buy. Why you ask…some buyers have decided to wait until spring. This is good news for you as there is less competition for the same property. Seller’s also receive their tax bills and this can increase their motivation to sell.  Or maybe you sold some stocks or gained equity in your primary home and decide that rolling funds into a 2nd property before year end is a great idea.  Don’t be beaten out, let us help you find your new lakefront property. There is still time to buy a property and enjoy the holiday season.
