Lakehouses for Generation after Generation Raymond Gary Lake Oklahoma


The Fire ManI grew up on the river. A real River Rat.  Some of my days were spent following my father around in the woods and on the river banks, with me trying to put my foot into the footprint that he had just raised his boot from.  Now that will teach you to take some mighy big steps as a child.


Being on the water or on the water's banks has always felt natural.  Eating fresh caught fish was a a common occurence.  Only after I was grown and didn't live on the river any longer did I realize that only a small percentage of Americans have waterfront homes.  Point2 Demographics says that there are less than 10,000 waterfront residences in the United States. 


When Don and I bought our first waterfront location on Raymond Gary Lake in 2005, it felt special... and special it was.  We were in the grandchild stage at that time and the grandchildren absolutely loved it...what kid wouldn't with a boatdock, boats, swimming, fishing, kayaks, and paddleboats! Sleeping at the lake was a bonus!


Now here we are 16 years later, and those grandchildren have small children.  The next generation is enjoying and loving having a lakehouse on the water.  Our Great-Granchildren! These babies think everyone has a lake house.  They are growing up with it. 


One of our Great Granchildren decided that he needed to be a "fireman" and put out the brush fire that his Great Grandfather had going to burn the limbs that had been blown out of the trees during the latest storm.  All kinds of fun happen around here... and waterfights are some of the most fun, which is where this lead!


Lakehouses for Generation after Generation Raymond Gary Lake Ft Towson, Oklahoma.  How neat is it to pass those special properties down to the next generation??  It is becoming harder and harder to buy into vacant land acreages and especially a second home waterfront location. 


We still have some affordable waterfront in Oklahoma..if you're thinking that's the way you want to invest...please give me a call:  Judi Barrett, Broker Associate at Integrity Real Esate Services, 116 SE Ave N, Idabel, OK 580-212-5946
