Although the properties appeal to individuals and families from all different backgrounds, Blain admits that they are particularly popular with couples whose children recently left for college. The waterfront is the ideal place to relax alone as a couple — or to entertain, The Democrat & Chronicle
explains. Moreover, would-be property owners are likely to snag the best deals in the Lake Ontario and Irondequoit Bay areas. The waters are only somewhat choppier, and the cottages and waterfront properties are significantly cheaper than comparable houses on The Finger Lakes, especially those located on or near Canandaigua Lake.
Despite what many believe, prices are not necessarily determined by the size of cottages or homes. Instead, homes are priced based on their proximity to the lake. “Buyers tend to prefer homes on lake level versus ones that are perched up high,” The Democrat & Chronicle continues.
