With a still sluggish real estate market, the dream of owning a lakeside home has become more affordable in recent years. That reality has led a growing number of home buyers, particularly older Baby Boomers looking to downsize, to pursue a home on the water. To that end, more than 40 buyers looking to purchase the lakefront home of their dreams attended the Keys to Buying Lakefront Property seminar, hosted by Mansfield, MA realtor, Lakefront Living Realty.
“Purchasing a lakefront home is different than any other real estate,” said Scott Freerksen, broker and owner of Lakefront Living Realty, LLC . “This seminar provided buyers the vital knowledge to ensure successful transactions and avoid costly mistakes.”
Knowledgeable guest speakers at the seminar, held at the Mansfield Holiday Inn on March 25, included Real Estate Agents Theresa Godin and Rick Stockhaus; Bob Barlow, Director of MBA Mortgage; Kathy Keaveney, an attorney with Keaveney Law; and Andy Gianino of The Home Store.
While attendees received more than $300 worth of materials and a wealth of knowledge, one guest walked away with something extra special: a FREE kayak!
Rob Hammett of Marlborough, Massachusetts was this year’s lucky winner of a free kayak. The kayak giveaway has become a tradition at this annual seminar, now in its fourth year.
“When we started this seminar a few years back, we wanted to make it special since this seminar is the only one of its kind in New England,” said Freerksen. “What better way is there for somebody looking buy a lake house but to give them a boat?”
