Lake Travis Real Estate Information
Lake Travis is the perfect destination for ultimate relaxation and water recreation. It is truly a gem among Texas Lakes. With its crystal clear aquamarine water, Lake Travis naturally attracts water sport enthusiasts. There is an amazing variety of boats on Lake Travis; from sailboats and windsurfing regattas, to competition ski boats, jet skiis, and scarabs to huge luxury houseboats. Travis County maintains public parks and boat ramp access to ensure a safe boating experience. There are also several private marinas as well. The hot summer weather makes Lake Travis ideal for outdoor enthusiasts from around the country to enjoy the beautiful sunsets and finding a place to cool down. Recreation extends fully beyond water sports to horseback riding, hiking, camping, and picnicing. Most divers receiving their open water certification, come to Lake Travis for it's crystal clear water. I received my advanced and dive rescue certification in1988 right here on Lake Travis.
Lake Travis waterfront homes can also be really tricky. Lake Travis is a flood control lake, so it can rise rapidly! Some are in the flood plain, some not, some have a property line into the center of the cove or lake, some do not. This can become critical with water levels varying so much. Please know you you will need either elevations for flood plains and LCRA septic certification for Lake Travis homes. This is what your Realtor gets paid to do is analyze them. Make sure you have a good one that specializes in this area. Homes for sale on Lake Travis can range from the $200's - several Million $.
