What If You Could Buy Your Own Lakefront Town ?

It appears that buying your own town is a current trend, be it a small one, just as in the size of this town being sold.  Currently there is a  Buford, MT town up for auction that will take place April 5,2012.   It includes 5 buildings and 10 acres and is called the “smallest town”.


The Real estate firm of Williams and Williams is handling the auction with a minimum starting bid of $100,000.00. We will have to watch and see who the winning bidder is and how much the bid was.

On the Finger Lakes, we do not have any towns that small, but we do have a few hamlets.  How wonderful would that be, to own your own little lakeside hamlet ? 

I am not even sure how that occurs.  Do you start buying up properties until you own a certain amount and then ask to incorporate from the existing town?  How did Buford, Mt manage to stay a separate town from the larger surrounding towns?

I can dream – right ?  I am sure there won’t be any towns for sale on the lakes, but rest assured there will be plenty of lakefront properties available to purchase.  Call me to help you find your perfect vacation home !
