Ohio is currently seeing a boon in the real estate market for luxury lakefront homes. More people are interested in buying property than at any point since 2005. With this busy real estate market, it is a great time to consider the options when searching for luxury lakefront homes which suit the needs of the entire family.

 

Hot Market

Nationwide sales have been going steadily up since February, 2007. The spring buying season is approaching when homes go up on the market in time for summer and fall sales. Realtors are anticipating a stronger than ever buying season this year. Homebuyers are looking for more properties and, with many available on the current market, the demand is higher than ever. Steady job growth combined with an improving economy means more households are saving up for that perfect lakefront property.

 

Trends

The past several years have seen a downturn in the real estate market due to fluctuations in the job market and overall economy. When these two are weaker, people are less likely to look to make big purchases or moves. A recent look at trends in home purchases by the Ohio Association of Realtors demonstrates a swifter than average pace of families seeking their perfect home at an increase of around 14% over the year before. In the Ohio house market, strong sales and steady growth are leading to great deals on homes.

 

Buy Now

As with any market trends, when there are an influx of buyers for available properties, prices can rise. Now is the best time to consider buying lakefront property on the market, whether new or existing, before prices go up. Due to high demand, lakefront luxury homes don't generally last long as they are in higher demand than other properties in the area. It is currently a buyers market in that there are more buyers than sellers after years of a sluggish market. Mortgage rates are low with rises expected so now is a great time to get started on the search and begin putting together criteria for purchasing a home.


Luxury lakefront homes are in demand and the market is open for all buyers with fewer properties at low prices. Ohio is a hot market right now with a growing economy and improving employment statistics which make homebuyers more confident than ever that, without a doubt, buying a home right now is the right decision.
