Waterfront Homes in North Texas

Waterfront Homes in Noert Texas

“You know, we would really like to find a home on water.”

We hear these words quite often as people move into the north Dallas area. While there are many homes on water, the prices are considerably higher.

Why? Water is scarce in Texas.

Many of our lakes were built by the Army Corps of Engineers and while these lakes are available for recreational use, the Corps owns much of the land adjacent to the lakes and they do not allow homes on the water. In those places where they do allow access, land prices are quite high driving up the price of waterfront homes.

Many Waterfront homes in the urban and suburban areas are built on smaller, private lakes or running creeks. Most of the lakes are too small to allow docks or motorized watercraft.

If you’re willing to live in the more rural areas, lake homes and lots can be found at affordable prices.
