Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia currently has an excellent inventory of properties on the market. The good news for buyers is that prices have stayed relatively flat and interest rates are still very good, whether for a weekend/vacation retreat or as a full-time residence SML has unlimited possibilities in just about every price range.

One word can be used to describe what some buyers visiting the area feel and that is OVERWHELMED. With over 500 miles of shoreline and 22,000 acres of water, Smith Mountain Lake has so much to offer in terms of property types. Everything from small cottages to townhomes, vacant lots (with or without a dock) all the way up to 7,000 square foot estates I’d like to think that there is something for everyone here at the lake.

With the many neighborhoods and communities to choose from it’s no wonder that buyers have a hard time deciding what place to call home, or at least a vacation home. We have terrific premier communities such as The Cottages at Contentment Island, The Water’s Edge complete with a championship golf course all the way to rural horse properties.

My advice to all of my buyers is to try to make some choices first. By this I mean that it is a good idea to do some homework and determine what type of property that you are interested in, price range, and the communities that you like.
