Earlier this month, the National Association of Realtors published an update focusing on the latest buying trends of the under 40 generations. During tough economic times, potential home owners in this age range were commonly living with their parents or opted to rent a home or apartment. Now with an upward trend both economically and in the real estate market, the article says Millennials are more confident in home ownership than they have been in several years. And we think young home buyers would love to buy a home at Smith Mountain Lake in particular – for many reasons.
Smith Mountain Lake has affordable homes for sale. Think this community is only large lake homes and mansions? Not true at all. The lake community has been developing for some time which means there is a vast range of home sizes, styles and prices. Many newer homes are large, but the average SML home on or off-water is modest and fits within a typical mortgage budget.
Smith Mountain Lake Schools are exceptional. One of the highest priorities of younger home buyers is the local educational scene. Our public and private schools are some of the best in the state, and have the achievements to prove it.
Smith Mountain Lake is Keen on Green. Living, that is. Smith Mountain Lake builders are using green materials and construction techniques to satisfy the popular trend for many SML homeowners. Home buyers have a good chance of finding a green home for sale, or a contractor who knows exactly how to build your green dream home.
Smith Mountain Lake is exciting. The lake lifestyle isn’t only for the older generations. Younger home buyers will be glad to know they can have the lake – and all its thrills – as their backyard for much less than they might think. Young families thrive in our community.
