Do you want to know more about Grove, OK and the homes for sale?


Real estate in Grove is much like other areas except there is an added dimension because of Grand Lake Oklahoma. When looking to buy or sell property here, you must be able to recognize the differences. Then you’ll want to evaluate them to decide if you are getting a fair deal, whether buying or selling.

Now back to Grove. Some of areas which seem to be in constant demand are of course the waterfront homes which are more costly but usually are your best investment. After that, lake view homes and then nice homes in the subdivisions. Some subdivisions which provide all three of these are… Buffalo Shores South, Buffalo Shores North, Buffalo Shores III, The Preserve and Patricia Island Estates. There are too many to mention all of them so I’ll stop with these for now. Waterfront homes in these areas are typically $500,000 and up depending on age, condition, amenities, view, dock etc. At this time a dollar per square foot range could be $150/sq. ft. to $250 /Sq. ft.

Be sure and read some other articles written on this blog concerning this subject such as “Buyer Be Careful” This is not intended to scare anyone away. It is intended to provide food for thought and a short course in the real estate market in Grove, OK and Grand Lake.

Homes which are not waterfront of course, will be less per square foot but value still depends on some of the same things previously mentioned including that old saying in real estate… Location, Location, Location. Is it on a golf course? What are the other homes like? Is the area well groomed? What is the location relative to shopping, schools, medical care etc.? The price range here is around $75/sq. ft to $135/sq. ft. ( lake view could be higher)

Big differences to be sure. So make sure you look at enough homes for sale to help form an opinion and ask your Realtor questions. One thing we like to do is show you some homes you are interested in that we know you won’t care for. This will help you learn about the Grove OK and Grand Lake OK real estate markets.
