Not every lake home is waterfront, but they all have their advantages. Lake Homes Realty’s CEO, Glenn Phillips, breaks down the differences between types of lake homes.
- Sometimes, But Not Always: Not every lake home is on the water. There are many options available including lakefront, lake access, and lake view.
- Lakefront: This property is also known as waterfront, and is actually on the water. The home has direct access to the lake.
- Lakeview: These homes are some distance away from the lake, but have a beautiful view of it from where they are. For some, the view is the highlight of lake living.
- Lake Community: Typically a large community with plenty of amenities including golf courses and clubhouse access. You’ll also be a fair distance from the water but said amenities will more than make up for it.
Whether your home is right on the water, or some ways away, you can still make the most out of your lake living experience. Think about what’s most important to you before you buy your dream lake home!
