Not only have I had personal experience in finding a lake home in the Finger Lakes but I have experience in renting that lake home which is one way to self fund your vacation home. There are a few rental companies in the area that can do this for you and include cleaning services as well but we chose to do this ourselves so we could better vet the tenants and keep more of the income for ourselves. I will include information in my blog over time but I am happy to provide a free consultation.
Sometimes building a new lake home is a better option. This way you get a brand new home with all the features you really want. There are many builders in the area and I have some very good recommendations for you. You could go with a general contractor or do what we did and be your own general contractor. Having been through this process myself I have some tips and some really important things to watch out for when taking this on. I will include these in my blog as well but again feel free to call me and will help you through it.
