Warning to new lake home buyers: underground oil tanks

November 14th, 2007 by Bob Bly

Many older lake homes have underground oil tanks, leaks from which can pose a hazard for the environment and a huge liability for the home owner.

If you are buying a home, do not sign the contract until the seller removes the underground oil tank and has it “decommissioned” (certified as properly removed and free of oil leakage in the area).

If you buy a home,  you take on all liabilities, including underground oil tanks — the removal and clean-up of which, if it has leaked, can cost upwards of $90,000.

Now enjoy life on the lake more than ever….

November 7th, 2007 by Bob Bly


Lakefront living offers the best of both worlds … gorgeous vistas and water views — in beautiful communities — where neighbors are friends, and peace and tranquility reign supreme … combined with easy access to swimming, fishing, boating, and other fun activities you can dive into right from your lake house shore or dock. Yet a beautiful lake front home can be yours for less than HALF of what you’d invest to own a house on the ocean.

Living in a lake house feels like being on vacation every day of the year. If you’re already enjoying lake-front living, Lake House Living™ can help you get the most out of your lake home – from selecting the best boats and fishing gear, to water safety and energy savings, to decorating, refurbishing, and expanding your lake home.

See you on the lake!
