Lake Front Homes
Owning your own lakefront home is a dream that many people have. But not all lake front homes are created equal and not everyone can afford every type of lake front property. Lake front property values can vary widely depending on your desired preferences. Lake Time Realty has the experience to help you find the right lake front home for your family.
To know whether a property is considered lake front or not, we need to start by defining the US Corp of Engineers take line. The take line is the boundary between the lake and a property owner’s land. It is where the owner’s land stops and government's land starts.
A property is considered lake front if at least one of the adjoining properties is the US Corp of Engineers take line. This means that the property line touches one of the Tri-Lakes area lakes property lines.
There are many types of lake front properties: lake front with a gentle walk down to the lake, lake front with wide open views, lake front with bluff views, lake front with panoramic lake views, lake front with select views, lake front with winter views, lake front with dock zoning and lake front with community dock nearby just to name a few.
Sometimes you can have several of these options within a single lake front property. Other lake front properties may just have one. As a buyer you will need to decide which types of lake front property features are most important to your family and best fit your budget.
Some buyers might initially think they'd like to own a lake front property with a gentle walk down to the water. But to get this feature, you might have to sacrifice a great lake view, because you could end up looking into the trees of the US Corp of Engineers since they own the lake and also govern the trees on the Corp side of the property line.
Other buyers prefer more of a wide open panoramic view of the lake. These properties are usually on a bluff which gives the property the awesome views above the trees and the owners can see for miles the lake and the amazing Ozark Mountains.
We’re not saying that properties with a gentle walk to the lake and a great lake view are not out there because they are. They're just harder to find. If you're searching for lakefront homes for sale on Table Rock Lake, let Lake Time Realty help you find the perfect fit for your family.
