So you want to sell your lake cabin...

Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

Well, now is  a great time to sell that lake cabin.

But, the agents you have talked to, do they understand all the issues?

Issues like...


Is the septic good or is an upgrade in order.

Is there room for an upgraded system.

How about the well?  Test it?  Shock it?  Purge it?


How close to the waters edge can you build a permanent structure?

How much does the water level change?  It there a chance of flooding the house?


Are there restrictive covenants?

Can you upgrade the structure ow tear down and build new?



Is there a lake association and what kind of issues are enforced? (Yes asso. have the ability to allow or disallow issues and actions)


Ask the agents about these.  They should know about them and if not, consider a different agent

Good morning William.

We don't sell much lake property, most of it has already been bought a long time ago.  When one does come on the market it goes fast.

That's a gorgeous picture to accompany your post, William.  I suspect learning how close to the water folks can build will be on a lot of people's mind in the future.
