Saturday Home Showing & A Few Photos At Lake Lanier!

It was a beautiful day to show properties on Lake Lanier on Saturday. It was still a little cool out since we started in the morning. But, the temperatures quickly increase into the 60's and everything was absolutely beautiful. We are in full bloom here with all of the trees and florals popping, and yes the pollen is too!

We were able to see three Lake Lanier homes on Saturday. Here is a list of the homes that we visited...


6401 Point Twenty Two
Gainesville, GA
MLS Number: 5982703
Listing Price: $550,000
166 Payton Duncan Drive
Dawsonville, GA
MLS Number: 5966455
Listing Price: $459,900
3141 Granada Way
Gainesville, GA
MLS Number: 5857849
Listing Price: $459,000

I was able to collect a few photos along the way. These shots are of the waterfront at Lake Lanier from different points in Dawsonville and Gainesville. There was a fishing tournament going on this weekend so there were a number of boats in the coves, slowly trolling around hunting for bass. That's a common activity this time of year. We hope you enjoy the photos of our scenery from Saturday. If you have questions about any of these properties, please let us know.  And, as always, please contact us if you need assistance in buying or selling your Lake Lanier real estate!
