I always let buyers know that there is not one perfect property on Lake Lanier for sale because there are going to be trade offs. Like for example deep water , open view of lake, How steep lot is or terrain of the property, Location on the lake North or South Part. Ga 400 or I 985 side. and Dock size cover ,party deck single slip or double slip ,power to dock, boat hoist etc... The number one thing I always get from buyers is " Do they have deep year around water" I explain to the buyer that this comes with a price.

Everybody thinks that a foreclosure is the best buy but in Truth most lake lanier agents know this is not the case because one thing is that we do not have that many foreclosures on lake and when we do everybody goes crazy on them and usually over pays for them. Also most foreclosure need a lot of work and when you come to the lake that is the last thing on your mind is more work because you probably already work at your full time job 40-60 hours in the week.
