Buying on a Lake
There are a few extra details to account for when buying a lake home. Lake Lanier is our backyard! With a close working relationship with the Army Corps of Engineers, we can offer additional insight regarding shoreline management, boat dock specifications and permits, and what can and cannot be done on Corp property. By the way, the Corp of Engineers are a bunch of really great folks!
Offer & Close
Once you find the home of your dreams, we will submit an offer. As skilled negotiators, we know how to get you the best price and terms on the home of your dreams. Once the offer is accepted, we will help you navigate inspections, appraisals, closing, and Corp of Engineers change of ownership process (quick note: dock permits are NOT transferable). We can’t wait to see you on the lake!
