A year that may best be described as chaotic, difficult, and downright obnoxious for many, has proven to be a huge year for lake real estate. Not just here on Tims Ford Lake, but seemingly nationwide as many people have been seeking to find a place to escape it all.
So let’s get down to the numbers for 2020 to give you an idea of the market conditions. These numbers are year to date as of this writing in mid December.

Available inventory remains the biggest obstacle for those looking to find a home on the lake. Historically low interest rates combined with quarantines due to the pandemic have resulted in more people than ever looking for property on Tims Ford. Our best advice if you are looking to buy is be patient and prepared to move quickly when the right home for you hits the market. If you are selling, odds are if you price it correctly, it will move fast, so be ready to move!
So, where will 2021 lead us?
Honestly, if 2020 has taught us anything, it is that you never know what will happen. The national experts predict that real estate will continue to perform well, and many expect that the housing market will lead us out of recession. My gut feeling is they are right. As for the Tims Ford Lake area, well, the secret is out, and I suspect this market will be hot for years to come. And why not? The beauty here is amazing. The people are wonderful. The location is perfect. Despite all the madness of 2020, lake life at Tims Ford is still the place to be!
