Lakeside living has its charm. Boating, fishing, swimming and an unforgettable sunset.

For those looking to buy the ultimate New Jersey backyard accessory, the lake, there are quite a few homes to choose from. Realtor.com currently has 157 listings containing the word “lakefront” in New Jersey.

And they aren’t just for the wealthy. Many are priced below or near the state median single-family home price of $510,000. But some reach millions.

New Jersey has approximately 1,900 bodies of water, Department of Environmental Protection Classified as a lake — no currents, a surface area of ​​at least 5 acres, and a depth of at least 1 meter. But you can live with much less.

The most well known are Lake HopakkonMohawk Lake, and Greenwood Lake, but there are dozens of lakes dotted with homes throughout the state.

The New Jersey Lake Federation has about 47 members, but it is unknown how many lake federations exist throughout New Jersey.

This type of living often appeals to people who enjoy the outdoors.

Joseph Venero of American Dream Realty in South Jersey, who has a listing in Layton’s Lake, a community of dozens of homes in Carney’s Point, said: “The change of seasons on the lake is beautiful.”

A few years ago, many lake homes statewide were seasonal, but now most are full-time residences.

Chris Edwards of Re/Max Town & Valley said: Lake Hopakkon“It was like the Hamptons today.”

Some lake communities require a homeowners association fee. Also, the difference between lakefront and lakeside homes can make a big difference in home prices.

But the value that a lakeside location brings to a home in general is innumerable.

“It’s very subjective,” says Jason Ichinco of JDI Appraisal Services at Pequanock. “It’s like saying the value of a car.”

Each lake community is unique. “Some add a tremendous amount of value, some add a tiny amount,” he said.
