There's No Better Time Than the Beginning of Summer to Buy a Lakefront Home in the Triangle

Triangle Lake Homes For Sale

With the official beginning of summer now only a week or so away, doesn’t it feel like the perfect time to buy a Triangle area lake home? In a location like central North Carolina, where the summers are hot and the dense forested landscape provides the perfect summertime atmosphere, there’s really no better place to enjoy the warm summer season than here in the Triangle, which is especially true if you’re lucky enough to live on one of the few lakes that are situated just outside the hustle-and-bustle of Raleigh, Durham, and the rest of the Triangle.

Whether you’re looking to purchase a small cottage to use as a quiet seasonal hideaway or happen to be looking for a fabulous new waterfront property to call home all year long, there’s certainly no shortage of options to consider when it comes to lake homes for sale in the Triangle.

Among some of the area’s largest lakes are Falls Lake up in Durham and Wake counties, Jordan Lake down in Chatham and Wake counties, and Lake Benson and Lake Wheeler, which both sit just south of Raleigh. But with so many smaller lakes also dotting the Triangle landscape, lakefront and waterfront homes are available all over the region, making now a perfect time to buy if you’re also hoping to take full advantage of the upcoming summer season!

To help jumps start your Triangle lake home search, we've featured some of the area's hottest lakefront and watefront homes currently on the market below, or for additional help on zeroing in on your perfect waterfront property, call or text Duncan Prime Realty today!
