lake oconee home for sale: Lake Oconee homes for sale, Part 2 - buy, rehab, or build? - 10/11/13 07:59 AM
In my recent blog about Lake Oconee homes for sale, I covered some examples of what choices buyers may find for move-in ready lakefront homes costing $325,000, $425,000, and $525,000.
I also showed examples of "fixer-upper" homes available for lower prices, and we talked about some of the updates each might need to be good choices.
Note that for all of these examples, we're looking at lots and homes outside the gated comunities at Lake Oconee - prices are quite different in the amenitized communities, so we'll leave that for another analysis.
Now we'll turn our attention to true custom options - … (0 comments)

lake oconee home for sale: Lake Oconee lake home for sale - 1871 Northwoods Drive - 05/07/13 05:03 AM

If your idea of lake living looks more like "On Golden Pond" , then you should consider the quiet north shore of Lake Oconee - like the Northwoods Subdivision, and this … (2 comments)
