Imagine waking up and walking out to a placid, serene and tranquil lake front scene, all in your own backyard. There are many benefits to owning your very own lakefront home and it is easier than you might imagine.

One benefit to lakefront living is access to a number of water related recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and swimming. Entertain friends and family by taking them out for a boat ride or enjoying a dip in the lake off your very own dock. On the weekends, enjoy the sun and water without ever leaving your own backyard. Lakefront living is also perfect for children or young adults who like to play outside and stay active with friends. When you live on a lake, you are never without entertaining and fun things to do.

Resale value for lakefront property is among one of the top factors for people when it comes to looking at lakefront homes. Lakefront homes retain their value better than most other properties and there are also more opportunities to increase the value of your home. You can add a dock, a boathouse and even create a beach area. You can also help to improve the view through landscaping.

With interest rates still lower than ever, owning your dream waterfront home is possible. So what should you look for in a lakefront property? Here are a few questions you may want to consider:

  • What is the neighborhood like? Is there an association of homeowners who regulates maintenance and upkeep of the neighborhood? Is the neighborhood relatively new or old?
  • How is the growth in the area? Is there any new construction nearby or are there any open areas near the property that could be turned into residential or commercial properties in the future?
  • What are the regulations on building from your property out into the lake (for building a dock or boat house for example)?
  • Are there any regulations on water sports, owning a boat, and other water use related activities, and if so what are they?
