Lakefront Living

By
Real Estate Agent - Nothnagle Realtors
My thoughts about buying, selling, and living in the Finger Lakes. Lakefront property is a tremendous part of our tourism and the people who live in the area towns and countryside play an integral part of creating the aura surrounding the wineries, farm markets, and lakefront property.

We've all seen it.  You're working with an agent you have come to know and trust and you find a property that is a FSBO (pronounced Fizz-Bo), a For Sale By Owner property.  Your agent has done a great job of understanding your needs, narrowing your search, showing you homes, and ultimately gettin...

I had a terrific conversation today with a gentleman who was all bent out of shape about our Governor's proposed property tax cap.  He was reluctant to tell me which side of the aisle his representation leaned, but he was intent on convincing me the cap should not be implemented.  While I'm not s...

That was a phrase my grandfather used years ago.  It stuck with me and means so much to me in real estate today!  Some days I am amazed by clients asking me to sell their home and bring them top dollar, but they won't lift a finger to make sure their asset looks it's best.
