Truth be told Im always in love with Lake Anna...It would be very difficult not to be.There is something absolutely wonderful about seeing the reflection of the colorful leaves in the water. If you have not treated yourself to a boat ride during this time of year please try to make it happen this season.Those that are fortunate enough to live or spend time here know what I mean. Another nice thing about the fall is that as the leaves drop the homes along the shore become even more visible.That is another treat. Every time we go out I see another home that I havent noticed before and often several more.That is excit- ing to me because no matter how many new homes we have the area still maintains its rural feel. There was a time when fall was not only a colorful sea- son it was also a time when we would witness a slow- ing down of the real estate market. It never shut down completely but it certainly did slow down. With the economic recovery still mov- ing forward we are seeing a difference with fall continu- ing to be a busy time. Fortunately Lake Anna continues to experience a very healthy real estate mar- ket.To set the record straight right from the beginning I must admit that we are not seeing real apprecia- tion. I am not sure what it will take for that to happen other than a matter of time. Nevertheless it is healthy in that we continue to have a good number of properties selling.This article will deal only with homes although 21 unimproved lots also sold during the third quarter of 2015. We continue to witness some pent up interest in selling as many owners have had the luxury of wait- ing until the Great Reces- sion showed significant signs of being behind us. Now they are putting their properties on the mar- ket. Buyers in most price ranges have had multiple homes to chose from and many of them were able to find what they were looking for.This has contributed to a busy time for everyone involved in the real estate sector including buyers and sellers. Since July 1 2015 until September 30 2015 there have been 47 houses sold.This includes a com- bination of waterfront and water access homes.That includes homes sold from a low of 99822 to a high of 1425000 with that seller paying a 11000 subsidy to the buyer.The private side accounted for 11 of these sales while there were 36 sold on the main or public side of the lake. During this same period in 2014 there were 47 homes sold. The lowest sold price was 100000 and Fall In Love With Fall... And Lake Anna the highest was 1630000 without any subsidy. Of the 47 homes sold 38 of these were located on the main side lake and the other nine were on the private side. Our numbers may seem low compared to other more populated areas but these are good numbers for Lake Anna. It will be interesting to see what the future brings. I promise to keep you posted. MRIS our multiple listing system recorded 48 homes sold. However each year one of the houses included by the listing agent was not a waterfront home nor part of any Lake Anna community so they have been excluded.
