We talk to people all the time who want to buy a second home on Grand Lake or a full time retirement home on Grand Lake but have held back because of concerns over the economy or other issues. Maybe now is the time to put away those fears and start enjoying your dreams. Life is always full of uncertainties but we have to conduct our life in prudent ways morally, economically, and live our dreams to the fullest. We only go around once, why not enjoy each day and live within your means but also do the things you have saved for and dream for. Some reasons now might be the best time to buy your Grand Lake Waterfront Dream Home that is For Sale Now.
1 The economy is still hurting for low wage earners and people starting out but for middle class and upper middle class America, many people have had their heads down working and saving for years. The economy downturn a few years ago scared us all but stocks have rebounded to new all time highs and we stayed the course our accounts are very healthy now. You can enjoy your fruits.
2. Interest rates have been at historic all time lows for several years now, to the tune that many people don’t realize they will go up and have started the up trend that most predict will last several years. You could save thousands on a home loan by acting now.
3. Real estate and home prices have rebounded sharply around our country’s cities but second home resort type areas have not rebounded as primary homes have. Grand Lake Waterfront home prices are basically steady for about 8 years now. I seriously doubt this steady trend will last but will shortly turn upward as other area home prices have. This was the case in the 80’s recession with lake property values about 2 years behind city value upturns and I think we will see this trend again and we are at the 2 years since the upturn started in the cities.
4. Real Estate can be a portion of your investment portfolio. A Waterfront home on Grand Lake may not send you dividends each month unless you also rent it out part time but over the years of ownership you will see nice returns in the 10-20 year time frame if you should decide to sell. What investment can you enjoy with family and friends while also seeing economic long term increase in value?
5. The available Grand Lake Waterfront Homes for sale now is pretty good with excellent homes available in most price points. We do not expect this to continue. There is still not a lot of new construction or good available waterfront lots to build on in desirable locations. We expect our selection pool of homes to shrink over the next months to few years.
There you have my 5 good reasons to Buy Your Dream Waterfront Home on Grand Lake now. For more information on homes available, prices, best locations on lake and other real estate questions call the Grand Lake guy who will give you honest straight up answers with no hype. Joe Neill, broker associate with Keller Williams Realty Grand Lake Grove, OK 918 640-3300 direct or firstname.lastname@example.org We hope to hear from you soon. You could be enjoying the good life on Grand Lake, let’s talk about it.

Last night I attended a Realtor meeting that included a program on septic systems for the Grand Lake area and aerobic septic system maintenance. This included OK DEQ info on septic systems for Grand Lake area. I must admit I learned way more than I previously knew. Since aerobic systems started being mandated a few years ago around the lake for new construction we have mostly been told upkeep consisted of adding bleach to system and if the malfunction light went off call a service man. Not much to do and we hear of few problems. However, our program last night included an Oklahoma DEQ spokesman for septic systems from Ok City and a local installer and maintenance company. I have at the bottom of this a copy of the OSU tech sheet on septics and the local company Grand Excavating and Septic Systems handouts. It sounds like these systems required by law close to bodies of water and where no sewer system is available do need more than just adding bleach. This should not scare one off from buying a property with one of these aerobic systems but make one aware. If you choose the company presenting, Grand Excavating and Septic Systems has a division who will do monthly checks on your system for a fee of about $50 per month. Not a small sum of money but similar to sewer monthly charge on Monkey Island where we formerly lived. Could be good peace of mind for you to know your system will be ready to work at all times. Just my thought for the day. Read the following and see what you think.

One of Grand Lake’s Top Real Estate Agents

You want to sell your Grand Lake home, land, or commercial building. Now the problem of how is the best way to sell homes or real estate in the Grand Lake area. You could sell it yourself but most Grand Lake buyer’s come from far and wide and start their search on the internet. You can place an ad on one internet site and might get some play but if you choose a qualified real estate agent they will have internet exposure built up already with their listings many times going to over 200 national sites. Good real estate agents also have people working with them hunting places possibly just like yours. A qualified agent will know the market and help you get top dollar without over pricing your home or land to the point it just sits on the market. Agents also work with their peer agents who also have a following. So in effect when you hire one good real estate agent you get their marketing services plus their relationships with other agents who help each other sell their listings. A good agent will know just how to present your property so that it shows the best on the internet as well as their print ads. All in all your hired expert earns their keep in finding your buyer but it does not stop with finding the buyer. Many times to get a property financed and thru closing also requires the experience and knowledge of a good Realtor.
How do you find the right fit for you and your property. Talk to friends who have sold, interview several agents, look who is doing the sales of property like yours. Many agents will spend more time in different areas of Grand Lake or in different price points which can make a difference. When visiting with agents you can sort thru the ones who will tell you what you want to hear, can do anything, sell at any price vs the agent who is honest, gives you past comparative price sales reports, shows you current competition on the market of similar type properties. Pick someone who gives solid, trustworthy advice and has the experience to backup what they are saying.
We hope you will give us a shot too. I am Joe Neill, a broker associate with Keller Williams Realty Grand Lake in Grove, OK. I have been licensed since 1975, work full time in the real estate sales industry, and have experience buying and selling multiple properties for myself as well as the public. I have back up team people at KW Grand Lake who will help me when needed. Put my years of business ownership, bank ownership, and real estate sales to work for you. I promise to tell you honest opinions but also to listen to your needs. I am consistently among the top sales people in our NE OK MLS. I would appreciate the opportunity to work on your property sales too.
