As of 2015, potential buyers can view properties, including Texan lakefront properties, on real estate websites such as Realtor.com and Zillow.com, reports CBS Interactive. Browsers may also find a water property real estate agent to help narrow the search, notes Scripps Networks.
Realtor.com and Zillow.com both provide map options that allow potential buyers to zoom in and out of the desired location, shares CBS Interactive. Zillow offers a split-screen feature that allows consumers to simultaneously view the map and the property. Those searching for a lakefront property in Texas can zoom in to see how close the property is to the lake.
Knowing where the lakes in Texas are can help narrow search results. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department provides a list of all the freshwater lakes of Texas in alphabetical order, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Potential buyers can check the site to get an idea where to start the search since the department provides the exact locations and ZIP codes of each property.
Finally, consulting with a real estate agent that specializes in waterfront properties can help speed up search efforts. A waterfront property specialist can provide potential buyers with options not advertised on real estate websites and can help overcome challenging information while finding the right property for the purchaser, reports Scripps Network.
