Swan Lake Contemporary, $219,000

Here’s the first line of the listing for this Swan Lake contemporary with three beds and three baths: “OWNER SAYS SELL AND WILL ACCEPT ANY REASONABLE OFFER.” Always a nice place to start. I’m feeling a little less gung-ho about Swan Lake since a few have written in to say that the lake itself is not so delicious — more a body of water to look at than to swim in. But if that doesn’t stop you, this is a nice size and a nice price, with a motivated seller. Last purchased in 2002 for $175,000 by a Manhattanite. It’s also for rent, for $1750 a month.  If you can get that, you could cover your mortgage several times a year. Stats on the jump.

  1. Did people say why it is not nice to swim in?

  2. I’m curious what makes a lake not good for swimming and whether it’s a permanent problem. There are an awful lot of houses for sale in that community, it seems. Is there concern about fracking ruining the area? I Please do get more intel!
