Now Might Just Be The Time To Buy Your Family Waterfront Home On Grand Lake

Now might just be the time to buy your waterfront home on Grand Lake. We continue to see article after article showing home sales being greater than a year ago, new construction numbers up, and prices of homes being steady to higher. It sure likes like a bottom in real estate pricing to me. If you have been thinking about a waterfront retirement home or a family retreat waterfront home now might be the time to get a deal. Late summer when it is hot and the season is about 2/3 over is a great time to get a current waterfront home owner to just give someone a deal thinking their won’t sell until the next spring. You know what though, there is still 1/3 of the boating season left and your retreat on Grand Lake is a wonderful place to spend winter weekends just unwinding from life’s pressures. Enjoy a good book, a movie, dine out in wonderful places around the lake, and shop in the quaint shops. A lake retreat is fun year round. The last good point, interest rates are rock bottom low. They may stay this low another year, but someone soon they will go up as much as 3-4% pretty fast. Just think low bottom home price, record low interest rate, and chance to make memories with family and friends and have a good investment to boot. Sure seems like the time to me to think buying a waterfront home on Grand Lake. In might be getting to within months of when the last bargain on Grand Lake is available.

Spring Home Buyers on Grand Lake in NE Oklahoma

Spring has came early this year and home buyers on Grand Lake in NE Oklahoma were out this past Friday-Sunday looking for homes. We showed waterfront homes to a couple from Houston  on Friday and they now have an offer in on a moderate priced waterfront home on Grand Lake just outside of Grove, OK. Our next couple from central Kansas looked at waterfront homes in Grove but also in the new Polo Club development. They have made an offer on a brand new home in the Polo Club. Our third offer on Saturday came from a city couple in Oklahoma wanting to make their retirement home on Grand Lake. They made an offer on a golf course lot home at Patricia Island. We also had a couple on Sunday afternoon look at two Cedar Oaks 55+ waterfront homes. They are just starting to think lake homes but were eager to see two fine waterfront homes in this complex.

We don’t know yet if any or all of these offers will turn into sales yet, but we do know excitement was in the air. It is a realtor’s dream to have multiple deals being looked at on any given day or weekend. On three offers from buyers ready to buy. We are still trying to get deals together at this writing.

The Polo Club is Grand Lake’s newest gated development located on South Grand Lake with views as good as it gets. The new homes are beautiful, docks are in for your boat, community swimming pool is going in next month, and again the views are terrific.

Patricia Island is Grove, OK’s finest golf and lake subdivision with a wonderful golf course with lake views. You will find fine dining, shopping, health care, churches and civic clubs in Grove to enjoy for your retirement years in a wonderful setting all the family will want to come visit as often as they can.

Cedar Oaks is again a 55+ townhome community with community room, work out room, pool, library, game room, and association yard and outside upkeep of homes. It is a great place to enjoy retirement.
