Lake Ray Hubbard Living

Lake Ray Hubbard Living   Lake Ray Hubbard has grown to become one of the most popular destinations for waterfront lake living in the DFW area. If you have not come to check out our area, now is the time to see what there is to offer.  Renowned for the awesome sailing regattas on the south side of the lake which is a spectacle to behold, Lake Ray Hubbard residents also enjoy having phenomenal views from their lakefront or lakeview homes. With it being around 20-25 miles from downtown Dallas, people are finding out about all of the exciting things going on around this 22,745 acre body of water, with reasonable commute times to work.Waterfront homes do come with a premium price, but the good news is that with many of the lakefront home sites, you are now able to build a boat dock or boat house (among other things)  on the leaseback area of the lake with city approval and procedures. These areas include Heath, Rockwall, Rowlett and Garland. Each city has its own criteria for approving a property's eligibility.  Also make sure it is feasible to do so as well even if it is eligible. Be represented by a Lake Ray Hubbard expert if you are looking to purchase or sell who knows about the leaseback area and can direct you to information you need. Visit my page that has Lake Ray Hubbard homes for sale.Unlike many of lakes around DFW that do not allow you to build anything on the shoreline area, Lake Ray Hubbard has become a top choice to those who really want to enjoy the benefits of living on the lake. Lake Ray Hubbard is excellent for fishing, boating / sailing and kitesurfing. There are currently four marinas, two public boat ramps, and some scattered parks.  The shore line is a mixture of residential single family and multifamily homes plus some commercial development. The Harbor, located in Rockwall Texas, is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.  It  includes a 12-screen cinema, an adjacent upscale full service hotel (The Hilton), civic center, shops, restaurants, and offices. Did someone just say ice cream?  Yes, there is some tasty ice cream there to enjoy. Sometimes you can even catch some live music coming from within the Harbor.  There are also public boardwalks along the shoreline, fountains, other fun water features, plazas, pedestrian walkways and other amenities so visitors can enjoy all that The Harbor has to offer (not to mention spectacular views!.) Don't miss the summer concerts by the lighthouse that you can also attend by coming on your personal boat or bring your blanket to sit amphitheatre style.In Rowlett, there is some major buzz going on about the new development that has already had their ground breaking event.  This will be a one billion dollar development anchored by a resort that will feature a Cabo-inspired 8 acre blue lagoon.  This new development goes by the name of "Bayside".  Bayside is said to have plans for some residential living that features two condominium towers, upscale apartments and single family homes.  In addition, there will be a resort with marina, over one million square feet of mixed-use retail, office space as well as restaurant and entertainment venues.  Talk about some exciting things!   In Garland, Bass Pro Shops sits on the south west shore of Lake Ray Hubbard near I-30, where you can get whatever you need to enjoy lake living. Restaurants and hotel accommodations are close by.

Insurance Discounts for Gated Communities in Rockwall TX and beyond.

Insurance Discounts for Gated Communities in Rockwall TX and beyond.  Are you looking to move to a gated community or do you currently reside in one? You may be eligible for a discount on your homeowner's insurance policy. While not every insurance carrier offers this incentive, it would certainly be worthwhile to find out if they do, or shop around. It is usually not an automatic discount, so you would have to ask for it if it is available. Your discount can be anywhere from 5 to 20%.  The logic for this would be from a "loss mitigation" standpoint, meaning your home has an extra level of security that is a deterrent to would be thieves and or vandals.I would venture to say, though again check with your insurer, if you are not part of a community, yet your residence is fenced in and gated, you may have the same opportunity.          If you live in or plan on moving to a Rockwall gated subdivision, there are several communities that may fit the criteria. Also included in the list are Heath and McLendon Chisholm Texas which are adjacent to Rockwall and are in Rockwall County. The ones to consider would be the following: Shepherds Highlands Chandler's Landing Lakeside Village Buffalo Creek (a portion is) Enclave of Buffalo Creek Hills of Buffalo Creek Oaks of Buffalo Way Turtle Cove Bluebonnet Ridge Rolling Meadows Equestrian Meadows Kingsbridge Lariat Estates St Michaels Estates Villas de Portofino (condos) Waters Edge (condos) Cutter Hill, The Cabanas (condos inside Chandler's Landing) Rush Creek (condos) Signal Ridge (condos) If you are looking for a place to purchase in the Rockwall area that is gated, I have made it easy for you to narrow down your options by having a link just for gated communities, personal home or estate.http://www.dianelipps.com/Web/AR301007/CustomContent/index/5723011Let me represent you with your next purchase or sale!
