Have we seen the Bottom for Lake Lanier Real Estate?

Lake Lanier Real Estate “Dockable” Lake Home Sales saw a big increase (about 20%) over 2010 sales. That’s another fantastic year! Buyers are still getting great bargains, but we may be seeing a leveling off and possibly the bottom for Lake Lanier Real Estate. Last year the average sale price was approximately $426,271. This year that figure has increased to $456,376.  I wonder whether that signals a turn around.  Lake home buyers all want the same thing – “a great deal” and good interest rates.  Buyers should continue getting what they want in 2012.
