There are two ways to look for lakefront property at Smith Mountain Lake on the Internet.

  1. The hard way:
    The way you are doing it now, searching through hundreds of web sites, sorting out numerous duplicates, only to discover later that your favorite property has been sold and the realtor just hasn't had time to remove it (or left it on their web site just to get you to contact them, big waste of your time).
  2. The easy way:
    Sign up for my weekly newsletter which contains 100% of the waterfront real estate listings with pictures of everything on and around Smith Mountain Lake currently listed for sale on MLS (Multiple Listing Service), about 1200 properties. These are the same MLS listings that the REALTORS use. I compile the list and email it to you on Friday of each week.

To receive my single page real estate information newsletter, just send an email to and put OK in the Subject line. To have newsletter sent to an email, different from the one you are using now, include that address and any other useful information in the body of the email that might help us help you. It doesn't get any easier than this. If you don't find it extremely helpful you haven't lost anything and you can cancel at any time. I have a Privacy Policy that I strictly adhere to at all times.

Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia, a 20,600-acre man made hydroelectric generating reservoir and public drinking water supply, with about 500 miles of beautiful shoreline and mountain scenery with a nearly constant water level (see below). Hidden away in a valley just east of the Blue Ridge Mountains between Roanoke and Lynchburg, in southwestern Virginia, at the junction of the Roanoke and Blackwater Rivers. Smith Mountain Lake is almost 50 miles long and more than 200 feet deep and contains trophy stripers, muskellunge, crappie, walleye, perch, large and small mouth bass. Activities for everyone include all types of boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, sailing, golf, hunting, dining, relaxing and more.

Real estate taxes are as about 54 cents per $100 and electricity is as low as 8.6 cents per KWH. The overall cost of living is about 80% of the national average. A typical totally electric waterfront lake home with 3,000 square feet might have a real-estate tax of about $4,000 per year and an average electric utility bill of around $120 per month. The 7,000 +/- families already here are enjoying themselves while their property value appreciates at yearly rates better than the national average. Don't wait, until it is too late, check it out now before the prices get any higher.

This area is somewhat like a time warp, back to a period when you were a child and nobody was in a hurry. Located far enough south to be out of the extreme winter weather, while still having the complete four-season climate. These are "the good old days" and you might as well start enjoying them now, while your investment steadily appreciates. If you have ever wanted a place on a mountain lake, you owe it to yourself and your family to check out this area, come to Smith Mountain Lake and see what the area really looks like.

I provide you with all the information; pictures, maps, listings, plats and anything else you need before you venture here to see for yourself. Be aware, however, that once you've been here, you will come back.
