Things to know Before Buying Lake Norman Waterfront Property

Facts about Lake Norman, North Carolina

Not all Waterfront Lots can have piers.

There are minimum’s with regard to how many feet of shoreline you have to get a pier. A representative of Duke Energy must approve all piers and docks. There are restrictions on the square footage of your dock, the length and how far into a cove your dock can extend.

Your Boat May Be Too Tall

If you own a large power boat or a sailboat, it should be important to know th clearance of bridges around Lake Norman. Below are some measurements(at full pond). Knowing where these bridges are located in relationship to your potential home may be very important. 

Perth Road 5′3″
Kale Road 5′6″
Cornelius 4′0″
Mount Pleasant 5′5″
150 @ Mountain Creek 5′9″
150 @ Reed Creek 5′9″
Williamson Road 6′0″

Where is Your Waterfront Property Line? It is NOT ALWAYS at the Shoreline.

Surveys are important in every real estate transaction. Encroachments, easements,existing well and septic tanks could interfere with your plans. It is recommended that you always review a survey before closing. If your property is at the 760 degree elevation, Duke Energy publishes a Shoreline Management Booklet that is very helpful. Give me a call and I will be glad to help.

Will You Have Water in Winter?

If you are buying waterfront property, do you know how deep the water is? Do you have ‘year’ round water? Duke Energy manages the level and has a list of monthly averages. Call me(704 451 7051) and I will be happy to supply you with the monthly depth chart. You can also visit the Duke Energy on Lake Norman Website to obtain the current levels.
