Relaxed Atmosphere

Amazing Views

Originally from the DFW area, we settled at Cedar Creek Lake over 25 years ago.  Cedar Creek Lake Real Estate market is totally different world than buying and selling in DFW.  We work Cedar Creek Lake Real Estate in Texas and assist buyers and sellers looking for waterfront homes for sale. Bruce and Debbie assist buyers and sellers with waterfront resort living.  The Schwanbecks will exceed expectations.

  • In Dallas property pricing by the square foot is usually fairly accurate.  At the lake that doesn't work due to all the unique variables that are also considered when buying and selling.  
  • We have over 350 subdivisions around the Cedar Creek Lake area.
  • The lake area is primarily a second home resort market which is also different than the DFW area.
  •  In our years at the lake we have developed a list of contractors and such which can be extremely valuable to our buyers and sellers around the lake.  
  • There is a local lake area MLS and the North Texas Region MLS.  It is important to be members of both systems and understand how to utilize all the capabilities of both systems to benefit buyers and sellers.
  • It is important to use a lender that is familiar with second home resort properties.  Deals can fall apart because an out of area lender are not familiar with dealing with resort lakefront property. We have a list of lenders that we can share with clients.
  • An out of the area realtor is not going to know what questions to ask in regards to lakefront living.

With our experience and knowledge regarding lake property, we have the ability to guide and advise you in the right direction.  Call Bruce at 469.283.8656 or email BruceS@ebby.com OR Debbie at 469.249.2034 or email DebbieS@ebby.com anytime.  Be sure to check out our Social Media links.

Sunrise or sunset - the water views are serene and lovely.  The birds are flying, the fish are biting and the boat is waiting.  The trees are plentiful.

Yay for weekends!  It's time to get the swimsuits on, the yard games out, and gas in the boat.  Sit down for awhile, enjoy the breeze, and visiting with friends and family. Boating, skiing, and jetskiing are calling you. Good food, good times and relaxed atmosphere.  This is what life is like at Cedar Creek Lake!
