If you find it easy to enjoy a weekend by the lake, why not take the plunge and make living lakeside a permanent solution with a beautiful lakeside home on one of Tennessee’s beautiful lakes? As seasoned Middle TN Realtors, we have helped homebuyers build a life around their picture-perfect surroundings by finding their ideal lakeside home in Sumner County, Davidson County, and throughout the state.
Imagine starting your days taking in the morning views and ending your evenings with symphonic sounds of nature that take the edge off even the most stressful times.
Aside from all the personal benefits of lakeside living, there’s also the economic benefit. Owning a home is a sound investment, even in the best of times. But, owning a lakeside home means every time you’re moving funds to pay your mortgage, you’re securing an investment that’s appreciating by the year.
From mental health to economic welfare, to physical well-being, here are five of the most notable advantages of living lakeside in Tennessee.
- The Views
We struggled not to put an exclamation point at the end of this heading. The views alone make purchasing a lakeside property in Sumner County and the Greater Nashville Region worth its weight in gold.
When you wake up in the morning, you can take in your morning cup of tea with soft, glistening ripples upon the lake. When you ease into a rocking chair for the evening with your nightcap, you can listen to the symphony of crickets as fish arch in and out of the water.
If you’ve had a difficult day, the sounds of the evening will soothe your soul. If you’ve had a wonderful day, you and all the family can light sparklers down by the water, dip your toes, and watch the sun sink beneath the shoreline.
- The Wealth of Activity
Of course, you do not just have to soak in lakeside living from your Cracker Barrel rocking chair. You can get active down by or on the water.
Imagine walking lakeside while the sun goes down on Old Hickory Lake or the Cumberland River, Or, sliding your kayak into the water to gently ease away the stresses of the day. Lakeside living also affords endless ways to enjoy time with friends and family.
Swimming, of course, is an all-day (and all-night) affair, and, typically, where there’s a lake, there’s also a system of hiking trails. So, if you’d rather remain on dry land, then there’s a great chance you’ll be able to drink in the morning air, whether it’s by land or by “sea.”
- A Sound Investment
Typically, purchasing a home is a wonderful investment. Purchasing a home in Nashville TN is another great layer of investment but purchasing a home by a lake can make for the best investment of all. Every time you make a mortgage payment, you’re building equity and securing your interests.
Consider that there is only so much land surrounding a lake. That places this kind of property in lower supply than other areas in Middle Tennessee. Of course, any time demand rises above supply, you have a golden ticket.
- Blue Mind Science
At The Burnett Group, we’ve been selling lakeside retreats for nearly 20 years, and this was quite illuminating. There’s something called blue mind science; it’s the study of aquatic environments’ health benefits.
Have you ever thought about the phrase “seeing red?” Well, the opposite end of the spectrum is seeing blue i.e., an ocean, lake, or river. According to blue mind science, people are naturally drawn to blue space for its emotional benefits.
This makes sense when you consider the multitude of people who go to the beach or the lake to relax on weekends. If you want to get scientific about it, these blue mind studies cite the fact that water covers 70% of the earth and constitutes 70% of our bodies.
As such, there’s a biological connection (and draw) to water and that’s why we find it so calming. As with any study, take it with a grain of salt but we certainly found little glimmers of truth in the pursuit of a blue mind.
- Boosted Immunity
Here’s another tidbit that comes up often. It’s reported time and again that staying active and getting out in nature is good for people battling depression, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and more.
Think about all the things we do to stay healthy. May it’s the vitamins you keep on your bedside tables, or all the healthy food choices you make on a daily basis. Living lakeside is a wonderful way to tuck yourself into bed each night, knowing your physical environment is constantly working toward your overall betterment.
