An excerpt from the Lake Anna Real Estate Buyers Guide.

Everyone who has ever searched the web for Lake Anna can attest that they have seen ranges from $100,000 to millions of dollars for waterfront property. With the correct information, you may be able to find Lake Anna waterfront property that fits your budget and your criteria.

The variable that drives all prices is the value of the land, so whether you want a house or a vacant lot you must understand what the actual value of the lot with or without the house should be. After knowing the value of the land you can determine whether the house that’s already built is a better deal than the vacant lot plus cost to build. The waterfront land market runs anywhere from $100,000 to $700,000 for one building site.
