INFORMATION ON BUYING PROPERTY

 

When considering the purchase of waterfront property on Lake Travis, you need to work with a real estate agent with waterfront experience.  There is so much that needs to be considered when purchasing waterfront property, especially on Lake Travis.  Lake Travis is not a constant level lake as the water fluctuates depending on the weather conditions and on LCRA management decisions.  The elevation when Lake Travis is considered full is at 681' and the current flood stage is 715'.  The highest level the lake has risen to was 710.44’ on December 25, 1991. The lowest level it has been was 614.18’ on August 14, 1951.  The average level of Lake Travis is 670'.  

Potential buyers of Lake Travis waterfront property need to know at what contour of the lake the property is on.  It's important to know that when the lake is down, your boat dock is still floating on your property.  You also need to be aware of the elevation of all improvements on the property.  There are many homes around Lake Travis that were built in the flood plain.  This information needs to be obtained and considered before closing.
