Information for Buyers
Every year we see more and more people showing interest in Possum Kingdom Lake and the vacation oasis we have here. As the Baby Boomer generation comes closer to retirement, we also see more people hedging their bets and buying Possum Kingdom real estate for their eventual retirement. And its been nice to see more people join our community each year.
We have a wide variety of property to suit a wide range of buyers, too. It's still possible to purchase a classic PK property where you might have spent some of your youth. Quite a few are still in great condition as they've been well-cared for over the years. We're seeing quite a transformation in certain parts of the lake with many older homes being torn down to make way for more modern structures full of creature comforts. There are even new luxury developments cropping up around Possum Kingdom to cater to a variety of lifestyles.
Every community around the lake has unique character and appeal, but it takes the time and patience to find the perfect fit for you. You'll also need a knowledgeable real estate agent at your side – someone who knows the lake inside and out, who can not only help you evaluate potential houses, but who can also help you understand what to look for in a boat dock, or the water depth in front of a property and what to expect as the lake goes through its normal cycles.
If you're a fisherman, you might even want to know how close the best PK fishing spots are! Rest assured, all the agents at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices | Pondera Properties are well versed in every aspect of lakefront ownership and the recreational opportunities around the lake. You'll never feel uncertain or alone once you've had the pleasure of working with one of our real estate professionals.
Searching for a Lake House
Most people spend a good bit of time browsing through websites looking at available properties. And we hope you spend as much time on ours as you'd like. Just remember: browsing the listings for months is one way search out the deals, but truly understanding the value of each property takes some personal, local and in-depth knowledge.
Possum Kingdom Lake is a great place to own property, but there are also some things you'll want to completely understand about things like leasehold versus deeded properties, which are both found at PK. Working with a knowledgable Realtor® will save you time and money in the long run.
Some lake properties are never officially listed with any office. Perhaps the seller is only casually contemplating a sale, or doesn't wish to be bothered with by having the property always ready to show. Especially during summer months. As a local company, however, we often know about homes that aren't exactly on the market, but might be available. Its a good reason to let us know what your interests are – you never know what might crop up!
