EXPLORE VACATION & LAKE PROPERTIES
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM OUR AGENTS
BUYING A VACATION HOME
- Know what your property’s purpose is. Clearly define your desires before you
venture out on your property pursuit.
- Broaden your search criteria. You aren’t just looking for a home, but for an
experience. You need to know that the surrounding communities and the lake itself are a good fit for your needs.
- Get to know the whole area. Where is the closest grocery store? Gas station?
The best place to grab a quick bite to eat? How far off the main highway and interstate is the potential home?
- Pay attention to the fine details. Whether you plan to have a lot of company or just hope to modernize the home's aesthetic - consider what it will take before you buy!
- Get pre-approved before you shop. It is always a good idea to know you can afford a home before you start to shop, but this step is even more important if you are buying a second home!
SELLING A VACATION HOME
- Know who you are marketing to. Vacation and lake properties often attract a very specific clientele. Focus on selling the “lake life” not just the “lake house”.
- Make informed decisions when pricing your vacation home. Pricing vacation
properties competitively is key to success.
- Capture the beauty of your home with expert marketing. We know what it takes to market vacation and lake homes. We will help you stage, photograph, and market your home.
- Be ready to make improvements. Clear away the overgrowth that obscures any scenic views, and make needed repairs or deferred maintenance.
- Work with an expert. We have decades of experience helping people just like you sell their property, and are ready to give you the hands-on support you need!
