Water Levels on Smith Lake Above Normal

With all of the rain in the South, the water levels on Smith Lake have came up about 4 feet above summer pool level! The water has started to recede now, but it was an interesting site seeing some boat ramps under the water.

The Smith Lake real estate market has also picked up. This is the time of year to buy property on the lake! The weather is warm and there are many opportunities available in all areas of the lake. I have been working with buyers from all of the surrounding states lately. I have had many Tennessee and Georgia buyers who have found out what a great bargain Smith Lake is compared to Lake Lanier and Tim's Ford Lake.

With over 200 listings on my website alone, there is a smith lake property out there for everyone!

SPRING is Almost Here!

With Spring just around the corner, many people have been coming up to Smith Lake to look at properties for sale or check on their existing Smith Lake property. I have even seen some people in the water wakeboarding and wakesurfing with no wetsuits! Those are some brave folks! The water is almost at full pool now, so the water looks great, but is still very cold.

The real estate market on Smith Lake has really picked up over the last two weeks with afternoon temperatures in the 70s. Most of the calls I am getting are from buyers looking to purchase a vacation home on Smith Lake or perhaps a retirement home. I have in excess of 200 listings at this point, so I definately have some type of real estate for any buyer. If I don't have it, I will go find it!

Keep a watch on my Smith Lake website for the newest listings available.

Smith Lake Water Levels Almost 5 Feet Above Summer Pool

With all of the recent soaking rains, Smith Lake water levels have risen to almost 5 feet above summer pool! I haven't seen the lake this high in about 6 or 7 years. It's amazing to go from drought conditions to this! Today the lake level is 514.31 which is 4.31 feet above the 510 elevation, which is considered Summer pool.

We do expect the water level to drop in the upcoming days, and we are glad all of this rain has brought the Southeast out of drought conditions!

If you own Smith Lake property and haven't checked your dock and lines lately, I would strongly suggest doing so. Many docks and cables have broken loose due to the rapid rise of the water.

Low Interest Rates Create High Interest In Smith Lake Properties

Throughout the last few weeks, interest rates have dropped considerably, thus creating some buying opportunities for Smith Lake buyers! My phone calls, emails, and showings have increased since the end of December and first part of January. Most buyers realize this is a great opportunity to invest in Smith Lake real estate while money is cheap.

Smith Lake properties have not been affected by all of the mortgage problems that have plagued other areas of the country. The real estate market on Smith Lake tends to be a niche market with buyers investing for the future. Smith Lake waterfront prices are still well below other lakes in the Southeast. Now is the time to buy real estate on beautiful Smith Lake!
