Welcome Home to Lake Bonavista Estates - 08/26/11 06:52 PM
Are you ready to enjoy elegant lakeside living on a spacious lot with large, mature trees?

After the first seven months of the year, single family and condominium sales totaled 11,798, a five percent increase over 2010. “The recent rise in average days on market, especially in the single family sector, shows that while properly priced homes are selling quickly, over-priced listings remain on the market for a longer period of time.
