The Fall 2016 Lake Market Report was conducted by the Alabama-based Lake Homes Realty Company. They collected data from 46 MLSs spanning 9 South Eastern states stretching from Texas to Virginia.

One of the biggest reasons the Lake Norman real estate market is so large is that it attracts a substantiallyIMG_0262 high number of out-of-state and international buyers looking for a vacation home, due to its temperate climate, distance to an international airport, and distance to the mountains and beaches.

The Lake Homes Report also indicated that a whopping 42% of all of North Carolina’s lakefront real estate is found on Lake Norman. Metro Charlotte’s other lake, Lake Wylie,, by comparison, only comprised about 6.7% of North Carolina’s lakefront real estate.
