Before buying lake property, it is essential to learn these definitions. There are three types of lake properties. 1) Lakefront or waterfront property, defined as having the lake out your back door. Your property borders the lake and you live on the lake, 2) Lakeview or water view property, defined where you have a view of the lake, but your property doesn’t border the lake, and 3) Lake access or water access property, defined as having access to the lake (your property doesn’t border the lake, and you don’t see the lake). With lake access or water access property, you are just a short walk or drive away from enjoying the lake. Whatever type of lifestyle you desire, we’ll be able to help!
