What to Know About Buying a Waterfront Home

Will I need flood insurance?

It never hurts when you live so close to the water! I know of several excellent lenders if you need a recommendation.

What kind of recreation is allowed on the lake?

This varies by lake. Some lakes may not be clean enough for swimming, but are great for fishing or boating.

Just let us know which home has caught your eye, and we'll do some research to determine what kind of recreation is allowed there.

Should I get the bulkhead inspected?

Absolutely. The bulkhead is a barrier wall that protects homes and properties from the water. When buying a waterfront home, this is an important thing to include in your typical home inspection.

Depending on the area, the homeowner may be responsible for maintaining this bulkhead. Be sure to hire a waterfront specialist to thoroughly inspect your bulkhead before you buy the home. Let us know if you'd like a recommendation.
