Retirement Homes, Lake Homes, Second Homes-Is Now the Time to BuyWednesday, October 10th, 2007
Grand Lake in NE Oklahoma and the largest city on the lake, Grove is a wonderful area to own your retirement home, second home, lake home, or set up your business. This area has experienced good property price appreciation and movement the past five years but that being said it has not seen sky high pricing with contracts presented over asking prices or homes sold as normal the first week of listing. The area has experienced solid growth and price appreciation which can be held as we go through the national slowdown in real estate.
Should you buy now is often the question raised in the press or television news. Many areas of the country such as Florida, California, and Arizona are going through a real tough time in regard to housing. They also are the areas of frantic sales the past several years with huge yearly price increases and multipule price offers on homes listed less than one week. This type of market be it housing, stock, or whatever can not be substained forever. A good steady, solid growth market is better any time no matter the sector.
Grand Lake offers four moderate seasons with a blend of people retiring here from all across the country. It is easy to blend right in and get active in the community if you wish through the different churches and civic clubs. Retirement homes in luxury subdivisions, on the lakefront, or on a large lot in one of the rural subdivisions where you can have a shop, rv storage, or other nicely built out building by your home are all popular choices with many options to choose from. Pricing for nice homes new or near new start in the $130,000 range and go up to over one million for some of the best lake front homes. You can find your dream home here. Grove newest golf and lake subdivision, Patricia Island Estates offers homes from $180,000 to $850,000 in a great setting. Buffalo Shores South offers wonderful hillside, treed settings for homes from $200,00-1,000,000. Other great areas are found around the community.
Outside of Grove, the Grand Lake communties of Monkey Island, Ketchum, Langely, Disney, and Zena all offer something for everyone also.
