Features of a Dream Home on Lake Martin

Would you like to buy a home on Lake Martin? Chances are, if you’re searching in the Lake Martin real estate market, you’re looking for your dream home rather than an ordinary, run-of-the-mill home. Lake Martin real estate is known for being gorgeous, luxury, and most importantly, on the lake!

Whether you’re looking for a permanent residence, a second home or a vacation rental, your definition of a dream home may be different than someone else’s. Our Haynie Team is here to help you determine what makes a home a dream home to you!

Here are some factors that everyone should keep in mind when searching for their dream home:

Location and Size – Every homebuyer should consider the surroundings of the home along with the home itself, and if you’re searching in the Lake Martin real estate market, you already know this! What makes Lake Martin such a luxury market is lakefront property. If you’ve always wanted to live on a lake, you’ve come to the right place. Now decide if you’d like to live in a community with lots of neighbors, or off on your own with more privacy. How big do you want your property to be? How close to the water do you want to be? These are the most important factors for Lake Martin homebuyers to consider.

Property Age – When buying a dream home, it’s important to consider the property’s age. What do you appreciate more, rustic charm of older homes or open floor plans and modern features of newer homes? Do you enjoy home projects and won’t mind some TLC in the future, or would you rather just turn the key in your new front door and have no more work ahead of you? Newer construction might cost more, depending on many factors, but ultimately, it comes down to what you’re mostly attracted to.

Home Size/Features – Now it’s time to focus on the home size and features. How large of a home do you want? Do you want your dream home to be a luxurious mansion, fit to host an entire family reunion at Lake Martin in the near future, or can your dream home be small and cozy, as long as it’s right on the lake? What features are important to you? Do you want a pool or a fire pit in your backyard? Do you want a spa-like bathroom? Is an open floor plan important to you? How many bedrooms do you need? Which features need to come with the home, and which are you willing to compromise on, or add later?

These are all important questions to keep in mind as a Lake Martin homebuyer. Of course, The Haynie Team is here to help you!
