Whether you’re looking for the perfect summer getaway or want to live near Grand Lake all year long, buying a lake home is probably something you’ve been wanting to do for a while — and have possibly been saving up for. Here’s the best time of year to start house hunting if you’re looking to get a great deal on your new waterfront property.

We don’t blame you if you’ve always wanted to own a lake house? The thought of waking up to a beautiful sunrise over the water with endless opportunities to fish, swim, and take the boat out sounds almost too good to be true.

If you’re ready to make lake house living your reality, you may want to give us a call at (918) 205-4692. If you’re not quite ready for that, here’s what you should know about the best time to start the home buying process for waterfront property.

You’ll see the most newly listed homes in the springtime. If you’re looking for a large selection of properties, spring might be the ideal time to start looking for a home at Grand Lake. But these days, the choice of available homes can be minimal any time of year, especially if you’d like a newly built home, a gated community with a pool, and the opportunity to rent out your new property. The good news is that South Shore at Grand, located in Langley, Oklahoma, has all three options and a number of lots available for building. 

When it comes to buying and selling lakefront property, 39% of sales occur between September and New Year’s Eve. Research shows that the best time to purchase lakefront property is from October to the end of December.

It’s also important to consider what the lake property looks like in the offseason. This can be important if you plan to live on Grand Lake all year round or if you intend to rent it out when you won’t be using it. The winter months are the best time to get a worst-case scenario view of the property. With that said, we encourage you to visit our South Shore at Grand community this month to see how beautiful it is during the winter months. Keep in mind that if you like it in the winter, you’re guaranteed to love it all year long — especially during those hot summer months when the lake is glimmering from the water’s edge. 

Give us a call anytime at (918) 205-4692 to learn more about the South Shore at Grand community.
