2. Specific Details of the Lake Itself

Buyers understand they are not just buying a home, they are buying a lake. Therefore, all the details of the lake become extremely important in order for them to make an informed decision.

A key component of LakefrontLiving.com is to provide specific lake details such as size, depth, water quality, aquatic vegetation, amenities, events, Association data, etc. With over 2500 lakes already defined, it has become one of the most comprehensive lake databases on the internet.

Buyers appreciate the fact that all data is backwards compatible. Buyers can find a specific home and instantly view the lake data, or they can pull up a specific lake and view ALL the properties for sale with one click.

3. Local Lakefront Special Agents

Most buyers of lakefront homes are unfamiliar with the area they are purchasing in. And although they can research homes and lakes on our site, that is only part of the equation. There are a number of topics that only a knowledgeable local agent can provide.

Lakefront Living special agents are local experts that provide critical community details for prospective buyers such as specific shoreline conditions, neighborhood characteristics, zoning regulations, lake management operations, lakeside events and area amenities such as shopping, restaurants and schools. This “boots on the ground” knowledge is critical for buyers to make informed decisions.

Buyers appreciate having their own “personal lakefront assistant” to match their wants and needs to homes, screen and filter properties, and coach them right through to closing. Many special agents live on lakes themselves and can even provide boat tours for prospective clients.

Educating buyers on all things lakefront is a never-ending core value. Just one of the ways we accomplish this is through our “Keys to Buying Lakefront Property” Seminars.
