Whiteboard Topics: 4 Think-Ahead Questions for Lake Homeowners

by on

Do you own a lake house and are not sure whether or not you should keep it? Here are a few things to consider if you are on the fence about keeping or selling your lake home.

  1. Use or habit? Do you use your lake home on a regular basis? If you find yourself not visiting the lake as often as you’d like, then odds are keeping your lake home is probably not worth the time or money.
  2. Right size? Your kids might’ve moved out or you’ve added a few new family members since you first bought your home. So, the question is: “Is your lake home the right size for your life right NOW?” If the answer is no, then you might want to consider selling it.
  3. Family REALLY use it? Would your family actually use it if it was inherited? Just because you enjoy having a lake home doesn’t mean your family would appreciate it as much as you did.
  4. Duration of peak market? By holding on to your lake home for too long you might run to risk of missing out on the “peak” market. Lake real estate doesn’t always appreciate in value in the short-term interim.

Whether you’re buying or selling your lake home or property, our agents at Lake Homes Realty can help provide insight into today’s lake real estate market and guide you in your home journey.
