You have finally decided you are ready to take the plunge and purchase that dream home on Smith Mountain Lake! You couldn't pick a better place to buy a home! The area has much to offer. With so much to choose from, how do you decide the home that is right for you? The answer depends on your needs.
Let's start with the reason you are buying a new home. Is this home going to be your primary residence or a second home? If you are looking for a place to get away from it all or looking for a place to grow roots, knowing the answer to this basic question will help your agent narrow down the potential homes for you! If you are not sure yet what you are really looking for, make a list of what you WANT in a home and what you need. This list will be a big help as you look at properties.
The next thing you want to determine is LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!! Do you want a waterfront property with its own boat slip? Do you prefer a view of the mountains? Do you need your own dock or is a community marina OK? It may seem like you have many different options, that's because you do! Do you want to live in a community with all the amenities or in a luxury waterfront home of your own?
If you desire the convenience of community living, check out the Cottages on Contentment Island. You can have a lake view of the sunset or enjoy the pool! There is even off lake storage for your boat in the wintertime! With these features, the townhouses here make a great retirement home or second home!
If you want a luxury home all your own, you can't go wrong with a custom home with its own dock and houseboat slip. However, if you are looking for a place to take the family on the weekend or for and investment property, there are condos available that would be perfect! So knowing what you are going to be using your home for makes a big difference! From $1.6 million luxury homes to a townhouse on the lake, Smith Mountain Lake has a home for you!
