and common areas, sandy beaches and community boat docks. What’s more amazing is that you can purchase a nice home on Lake Nottely from around $400,000. You can’t even touch other lakes in the area for that price.
Overall, construction tends to be more traditional in our area. Even the cabins here are going to be a little more finished, with a nice mixture of sheet rock and tongue-and-groove.
The Market Is Solid
Right now, the local market is looking
  very balanced, with opportunities for buyers and sellers. Whether you’re look- ing for a view lot, a cozy cabin or an upscale home, you’re sure to find the perfect one here in Union County.
