Lake Hopatcong NJ Lakefront Homes are slowly starting to sell but there's still a great amount of inventory for the savvy buyer to choose from!  Prices have also dropped drastically with many homes still accumulating days on the market.  If you've been considering a lakefront home purchase on New Jersey's largest motorboat lake, this could be a great opportunity for you! Check out what's sold since May 1 through July 31.  Some of these homes have been listed several times, so actual days on the market (DOM) is not realistically portrayed here.  Information may be deemed reliable but is not guaranteed!

McKenna's Bar, a cozy tavern located on 260 Espanong Road in Lake Hopatcong, is now home to the Hellbenders Band!  Who are the Hellbenders? Just four musicians who love their craft and their music: Jim on guitar, Matt on guitar, Lawrence on bass and Joe on drums.  Their repetoire is basically "classic rock" and includes everything from the Beatles, Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, to the Screamin' Jayhawks.  Their next gig is on Satuday, August 16.  A great night with great music will be sure to entertain!  And, while that great music is causing you hunger pangs, McKenna's kitchen is open almost all night long and their food is FANTASTIC!  I had the jalapeno poppers and I'll swear up down and sideways that they were the best I've ever had (and I'm a big jalapeno popper fan).

Lakefront inventory is currently at a three-year high with 86 homes available around Lake Hopatcong.  With inventory being so high, opportunities for lakefront living are primed for qualified buyers! Lake Hopatcong encompasses four townships that are very unique, and two counties.  If you're looking for lakefront property, it's best to work with an agent who knows, not only the Lake, but the inventory, and who can tell you what homes have been listed and for how long.  As a Lake Hopatcong lakefront Realtor, I keep informed all inventory and will give my buyers and sellers a review of what sales activity has occurred over the past, most relevant, three years.  Here's a current list of available homes for sale on Lake Hopatcong.                                                             ...
