Buying a waterfront home involves more than the structure. The true value starts at the waterfront, which is why you want to be there in the first place. Make sure you have an expert who can help you make this important purchase and advise you along the way. Don't be like the new waterfront buyer who called me after the fact to ask what the milfoil suction machine in front of his lakefront home was for. Being the contact person at that time, I explained the situation and he became part of the team to help work with the issue. Initially, he was really afraid he had made a purchase that was detrimental to his family. Always try to get as many facts as you can before your purchase and for resale in the future. Waterfront experience counts!
As a waterfront seller, many of the cottages and homes have been in families for years. You need someone to help you weave through the challenges so that you can properly disclose to a new buyer. It is the unknowns that come back after a sale that become problematic.
Whether you are building a new home, selling a pre-existing property or looking for those special lake getaways, Carol Ann is the Realtor to call. She consistently achieves the level of professionalism that is expected from Locations Real Estate Group agents. Assisting in the process of buying and selling homes is her job, but helping people is her passion.
