We all think differently. The property that’s perfect for you might not be perfect for me or for anyone else. Those three most important items might be the type or size of lake, the perfect swimming beach, other recreation activities, the cabin style that best fits your lifestyle, the number of bedrooms, the garage size, distance from home, and certainly your budget.Make a list of what’s most important. Trade-offs may be necessary within a particular price range. If you find the cabin and lake of your dreams, what are you willing to trade off in your price range? Keep in mind that even if money is no object, you’ll still need to make choices and trade-offs. Example: I can find you a quiet lake that’s good for paddling and wildlife watching, or a deep, open lake good for waterskiing and jetskiing. It’s tough to find both in the same lake.
