2015 is proving to be a very active year for sales on Claytor Lake. As of today, August 12, 2015, there have been 13 closed house sales with 1 sale pending or under contract! Also, there have been 3 closed land sales. The prices are very stable and some areas are experiencing some appreciation in value. These numbers are for waterfront properties only. There have been several other sales with lake access or lake view. The inventory is fairly strong with some really good values in the mix. Please keep in mind that I do have several properties that are for sale but are not actively listed. Please give me a call for that inventory list. I look forward to assisting you in your search or in the marketing of your current home on Claytor.
Understanding the lake market at Claytor is critical to saving you time, money, and heartache.
Here are some general guidelines for Housing at Claytor:
1. You may be able to find a small waterfront cabin that would be a fixer upper under $250,000. Although, very few have entered the market in the last few years. We are seeing homes around 350k that are in good shape. The market is improving and buyers are realizing the value of what's out there.
2. Finding a 2000 sqft home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with waterfront is virtually impossible under $400,000. (most of these homes will be in the mid 400's to well over 500k, and even higher in the 6's, depending on lakefrontage, water improvements, etc.).
3. Over half the homes at Claytor are considered second homes.
4. Friends of Claytor Lake (FOCL) is one of your best resources at Claytor Lake - a link to the left is labeled "FOCL" for your convenience.
5. Land/Lots are hard to come by on this great Lake - if you find a lot, or a piece of land that is large enough for a home, and bungee cords are NOT required to get the lake, then I would suggest some research in a timely manner. When it comes to land, make sure you utilize someone with lake knowledge to assist you with purchasing. Septic systems, sand bars, coves collecting floating debris, and general water depths, are all items which should be high on your list of learning prior to purchasing.
