lake norman waterfront homes: Lake Norman Waterfront Homes: What kind of boat is this??? - 12/26/09 12:53 AM

On our way to Cornelius one day in our trusty pontoon boat I happened to notice this peculiar looking boat!  Because Lake Norman is so large we have myriad types and sizes of boats from modest fishing dingys to jet skiis to Cigarette boats. 

Lake Norman is even home to a few mega-party boats like this one owned by NASCAR race driver Tony Stewart:

At the Peninsula Yacht Club one can find a great example of the variety of boats on Lake Norman.

lake norman waterfront homes: Is now a good time to buy a Lake Norman waterfront home? - 06/21/09 01:50 AM

Lake Norman has come to life in the past month;  the water is warm, school is out and the boats, jet skis and water sports of all kinds are going on throughout the lake!
I am now having a continual flow of out-of-state buyers, especially from the Midwest and Northeast, coming to see our waterfront homes for sale.  Of course, the million dollar question is:  Is this a good time to buy a waterfront home?
During the past two years, the overall Lake Norman real estate market has slowed significantly.  The only price ranges that have good activity are those … (3 comments)

lake norman waterfront homes: Lake Norman Waterfront Homes Sales Update - 09/15/08 09:42 AM
Waterfront homes on Lake Norman historically have marched to the beat of a different drummer.  Until about March of 2007 our waterfront homes and lots were appreciating at a much faster rate than the non-waterfront homes throughout the Lake Norman area.  Because we have a finite number of watefront lots/homes, the limited supply and high demand is in stark contrast to most of the greater Lake Norman area where land is still plentiful.  Traditionally,  the average price of a Lake Norman home is about twice the price of a waterview home and more than double the price of a home without a waterview or lake … (5 comments)

lake norman waterfront homes: Before Buying a Lake Norman Waterfront Home, See it by Boat! - 07/28/08 10:46 AM

Okay, so I admit it, I love showing waterfront property here on Lake Norman by boat.  (The above picture is of my skipper/husband while we are waiting for my clients to arrive.) Not a bad way to spend a beautiful day! 
However, in all seriousness, it is extremely important, particularly for out-of-towners, to give waterfront buyers a tour of Lake Norman by boat after narrowing down their search a bit but BEFORE making an offer.  Here are just some of the reasons why:
Lake Norman is huge.  With 550 miles of shoreline there is an incredible variety of views, characteristics … (12 comments)

lake norman waterfront homes: Lake Norman Waterfront Home Sales Update July 18, 2008 - 07/18/08 10:03 AM

Would you be surprised to know that many of those relocating to Lake Norman do so only after first deciding that they want to live on a lake in the southeastern US and then determining through their own research that Lake Norman is the best lake in the southeastern US?  Perhaps its our 550 miles of shoreline that offers every kind of housing from modest cabins to grand estates but there is no doubt Lake Norman is one of THE destinations for those seeking a lifestyle change. 
Until about March of 2007 our waterfront homes and lots were appreciating … (7 comments)

lake norman waterfront homes: Lake Norman Real Estate: The Silent Majority Part 2 - 05/21/08 12:21 AM

Some of the Lake Norman neighborhoods with the most character and personality are not in subdivisions.  If you are looking for a more eclectic lifestyle where life is a bit kinder and gentler, I encourage you to take a drive down McKendree Road. 
Located off of  Brawley School Rd just before you reach The Point, McKendree Road leads to numerous winding waterfront loops and lanes nestled in tall trees. 

As you drive along these roads you will pass by the few remaining old mobile homes,  many charming lake cottages and large custom homes all happily coexisting.  Neighbors out walking or … (3 comments)

lake norman waterfront homes: Lake Norman Waterfront Homes: The Water is Back! - 03/14/08 09:21 AM

I always love showing buyers waterfront homes because Lake Norman is just so beautiful.  But, today was special. Even in the smallest of coves there was plenty of water for the first time since our drought started last summer. 
 Our beautiful lake is gleaming, the boats are back at their docks and our waterfront homes look better than ever! 
My friend, who moved here from Texas a year ago, commented on the fact that when they first moved here they had no idea how large Lake Norman really was and that it is truly more like an inland ocean than a lake.  I … (9 comments)
