So…after one of the worst winters in the past 15 years, the question I get asked the most is: “Has anybody bought homes at Smith Mountain Lake this year…and if so, where did they come from?”
Well…I can tell you this! The answer is a resounding “Yes!” And the rest of the answer may surprise you….although it IS highly logical!
As I’m writing this, I’ve already sold about $3 Million in waterfront homes since January, and everyone was LOCAL!
Seriously, who else would’ve even been able to travel in the crazy weather we had this winter?! So now the question you may be asking yourself is: “What cities are local to Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia?”
I’m seeing a completely new trend. Buyers are coming from in-state; Roanoke, Reston, Herndon, Martinsville, Charlottesville, Forest (a suburb of Lynchburg), the greater Washington D.C. area, and from North Carolina we’ve had Raleigh-Durham, Winston-Salem, Charlotte and Greensboro just to name a few!
And what’s even better is that these folks are able to get here quickly and use their properties even more than the average vacation goer.
We still have an influx of New Jersey and New York boomers and retirees coming to Smith Mountain Lake, VA and it’s still a fun melting pot for people of all ages and all backgrounds. Having watched the trends since 2001 though, I can tell you that being local has recently been synonymous with being a buyer.
