Before purchasing or building a new Pocono lakefront home, there are a number of questions to ask yourself...
First of all, what type of lake are you interested in? Must it be a motorboat lake or a quiet non-motorboat lake? Lakefront homes on motorboat lakes are usually more expensive and the lakes are generally larger in size. If peace and quiet is what you need, a quiet non-motorboat lake is probably best for you.
Secondly, how do you determine the value of a lakefront property? Lakefront homes on steep properties may have more dramatic views and vistas, but level lakefront homes are in greater demand, thus higher prices.
Level lakefront properties are more desirable for families with children and generally level properties have a safer and more visible shoreline for viewing and supervising young children. There is nothing more important than this issue for families with children.
The elderly also prefer level lakefront properties. Walking up and down steps can be tiring.
Whenever possible, select a property close to shopping, convenient to schools and with easy access. Choose a home or property with good drainage.
When making a purchase as important as this, always choose a qualified REALTOR to help you. A REALTOR knows where the best lakefront properties are located, knows all the communities, the schools, where to get the best financing and so much more.
