Whiteboard Topics: 7 Tips For Finding Your Dream Lake Home In 2022

The lake real estate market can be difficult to navigate when you don’t plan ahead. Lake Homes Realty’s CEO, Glenn Phillips, shares 7 tips to aid in the search for your dream lake home.

  1. Be Realistic: A home may not fit every criterion, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a solid choice. Don’t let your new lake home pass you by because of unrealistic expectations.
  2. List Your “Got to Haves”: Shifting your mindset to realistic expectations is essential, but it’s important to make a list of must-haves you refuse to compromise on. Think about what you truly cannot live without.
  3. List Your “Nice to Haves”: Creating a list of wants versus needs allows you to discover what you can compromise on. These bonus items can help you choose between similar homes.
  4. List of “Don’t Care”: Sorting out home characteristics you are indifferent to will help broaden your scope of available homes that fit your other criteria.
  5. List Your “Do Not Wants”: This list will help you determine which homes are automatic no so that you don’t waste time. This market is hot, and you don’t want to spend time on a home you would never buy.
  6. Focus: Pay close attention to the detailed lists you’ve created when searching for your dream lake home. This will ensure you narrow your focus to homes that have potential.
  7. Put Your Agent to Work: Now that you’ve developed these detailed lists, it’s time to put your lake real estate expert to work. You’ve built the perfect roadmap for them to follow while they search for your dream home.

Great things in life come from great planning. It can feel tedious breaking down all of your wants into detailed categories, but being thorough will ensure you find the home of your dreams!
