There is Much to Consider when Building on the Lakefront
Building on the Lakefront at Heritage Lake
Are you considering building on the lakefront? Whether you are building a new Indiana lakefront home or remodeling your existing waterfront property, it pays to consult a real estate expert in your lake community. “As a real estate broker who has focused on
selling Indiana lakefront properties at Heritage Lake for 30 years, I have seen the very best and the very worst in lakefront home construction. Sometimes people do not even realize they put a fireplace right in front of the biggest lake views!” states Darrel Brouhard, the local real estate expert at Heritage Lake Indiana. “Often, there are small changes on an existing home that really optimize the view. Don’t forget, when considering your place on the water, that it is all about the lake!” This is also why it is so important when listing lakefront properties to understand the impact of the waterview, amount of shoreline, and use of the view from the home and lot when arriving at the right list price on a waterfront home.
You will pay more to be on the water. There is only so much waterfront property in Central Indiana so waterfront properties are rare and valuable! Especially at Heritage Lake which is only 28 miles from Indianapolis! Properties on the main body with big views of the main body are the most valuable although properties on nice coves are also in demand.
The best of both worlds is a lot on the main body with big views that also has protected cove areas for swimming, fishing, and for your dock. Regardless, if you own an Indiana waterfront property you have an investment that is important to protect by being sure you optimize the views and shoreline in the best way! If your lakefront lot is at Heritage Lake, call Darrel Brouhard. Darrel and Teresa have lived and worked at Heritage Lake since 1988 and have sold more Heritage Lake properties than anyone else. Darrel has sold many homes at the lake 3 or more times! “Many Heritage Lake property owners have called to discuss renovation ideas or construction plans. I don’t mind sharing my opinions. I have helped countless clients
refine their building plans to take in the views or focus on small changes that will not only enhance their enjoyment of their lakehouse but also add more proceeds when they go to sell the home.”
Spring is on the way and if you are considering any renovations or building on your lakefront lot, call Darrel first! Stop over with your building plans and ask Darrel to walk your lot. I can’t tell you the times I’ve seen a home on the water that missed the best views! Optimize views, enhance the shoreline, and plan for outdoor living areas that will enhance your lakefront dream home at Heritage Lake!
