LakeHomes.com Awards 2019 Best Retirement Lakes

Thursday, December 5th, 2019 | Uncategorized | No Comments

LakeHomes.com, the leading web destination for lake real estate data and sales information, has identified its list of 2019 Best Retirement Lakes (www.lakehomes.com/info/articles-and-news/2019-best-retirement-lakes). The list was compiled with data from Lake Homes Realty’s quarterlyLake Real Estate Market Report (www.lakehomes.com/info/lake-real-estate-market-reports) in conjunction with the 2019 SmartAsset Best Places to Retire (https://smartasset.com/retirement/where-to-retire). 

The editorial committee measured markets with a minimum lake market listings value of $10 million. The criteria included data points such as accessibility to healthcare facilities and the portion of the existing population that are senior citizens, along with each area’s cost of living and tax burden.

“Our data tells us that lake real estate buyers and sellers are primarily retirees or soon to be retired individuals,” said Mark Griggs, Marketing Director of Lake Homes Realty/LakeHomes.com. “Buyers often shop across multiple states and lakes to find the ideal location for their life stage. We have compiled our list of the best lakes based on the top retirement preferences for this demographic.”

The awarded lakes for 2019 are: 
» Lake Granbury, Texas
» Lake Hickory, North Carolina
» Lake Lanier, Georgia
» Lake Guntersville, Alabama
» Lake Keowee, South Carolina
» Tellico Lake, Tennessee
» Lake of the Woods, Virginia

“Our lake focused real estate agents are experts in helping customers find the perfect property to fit any lifestyle,” said Glenn S. Phillips, CEO of Lake Homes Realty/LakeHomes.com. “Each one of our agents live, work, and play on the lakes they service. That local knowledge includes awareness of the attractive qualities that retirees are seeking.”

“I was so excited to hear the news about Tellico Lake receiving this award,” said Karen Packett, listing/selling broker on Tellico Lake and Fort Loudoun Lake with Lake Homes Realty.  “I’ve lived here all my life, and to see Tellico Lake and all the lake communities like Tellico Village and Rarity Bay experiencing such wonderful growth is heartwarming.  Since I specialize in lake community properties on Tellico Lake, I truly feel blessed to be able to introduce my buyers to my wonderful area and all we have to offer!”  

“As we continue to build our marketing strategies for both travel inspiration and retiree relocation, we are proud that Tellico Lake has been recognized as one of the Best Retirement Lakes by LakeHomes.com,” said Rachel Baker, Director of Tourism for Visit Loudon County. “As retirees are estimated to visit a community three to five times before making a decision to relocate, it is a natural fit for our organization to target this demographic.”

Loudon and Monroe counties have become an ideal location to visit and to retire. Retirees become “permanent tourists,” according to Baker, seeking a well-positioned location with easy access to a metro area and airport, access to premier healthcare, and a low cost of living. No state income tax, four mild seasons, extensive outdoor recreation, and community-focused amenities are also desired among today’s retiree.

“We are honored to be considered one of the best retirement lakes in the nation in 2019,” said Monroe County Mayor Mitch Ingram. 

“We are excited that Tellico Lake is receiving the recognition that reflects the true experience it offers to our retirees in this area,” said Blaina Tallent Best, Monroe County Director of Tourism. “We invite anyone looking to retire to consider Tellico Lake. You will not regret retiring here.”
