Life on the Lake-Keuka Lake is a Great Place to Vacation and Live

3101 Lower West Lake Road, Jerusalem NYThe Finger Lakes Region of New York is currently enjoying a robust real estate market. Small, historic villages and everything from farmer’s markets, boating and fishing to lakefront properties and wineries is attracting buyers to the area.

The majority of the region is still considered a buyer’s market (more sellers than buyers which results in low home prices from this excess of supply over demand) but as lakefront homes increase in popularity, the Finger Lakes area is seeing an increase in home sales and upward trending sale prices. Home sale prices are increasing at an average rate of 9% per year and it is not uncommon to see property values near $1 million. However, sale prices can range anywhere from $20,000 to $2.8 million depending on location, acreage and type of home.
