Summer update

It has been a great summer to live on Lake Lanier. There is no better place to beat the relentless Georgia heat, and boy has it been hot!

In general, there are fewer people looking at lake homes this year, yet we are right on track to match last year’s record-breaking sales. Our theory is that the lukewarm buyers, those who like to look at lake property as a hobby, have decided to wait. We attribute that to the contentious presidential election that has eroded buyer confidence and pushed that dream further down the road for some people. But the folks who are looking seem to have their check books in-hand, and they are pulling the trigger to buy their dream homes. We’ve enjoyed working with buyers who are seriously committed to finding their dream lake homes. That makes our jobs easier and more fun.

Our team has had a great time this summer meeting new friends by sponsoring Lanier events. That includes the Lake Show concert charity fund raiser, the Gateway to Hope gala and silent auction, and several Lake Lanier Association events. We also sponsored the annual Lake Lanier Poker Run benefitting area children’s charities. We gave out mountains of floating key chains, bottle opener key chains, beer mugs, coffee cups, Koozies and beach mats. It was a blast meeting so many lake people and having the opportunity to tell them about our gorgeous lake listings. We are in the people business, so all of us enjoy these events. Let’s face it. Lake people are just FUN!

Typically, we stay crazy-busy through September. It slows down a bit in October and November, then cranks back up in December. We have closings year-round, so there’s never a bad time to buy or sell a lake house. In the slower season, there are fewer buyers, but there is also less competition. Some people choose to look in the spring or fall due to the mild weather. Others prefer winter because they think they’ll get the best bargains, and what else is there to do in cold weather? Bottom line: it’s always a good time to buy or sell a lake house!

Give us a call today and we’d love to help you find the good life on Lake Lanier!

See you on the lake!
