Lake Travis Homes For Sale, Under $500,000
Lake Travis is a boaters paradise thanks to its 57.6 miles of boatable waterways and deep water (max depth of 190 feet). The deep water is perfect for cabin cruisers, houseboats, and wakeboard/wakesurfing boats (the deeper the water the bigger the boat's wake is). 10.1 miles of these boatable waterways are on the Pedernales River which is one of the best places to wakeboard in the entire country thanks to its natural shorelines and winding curves that pretty much guarantees a straightway that will be blocked by the wind. This lake is not a constant level lake however the depth still allows most of the lake to be boatable in some of the worst droughts. Lake Travis does allow floating boat houses unlike other non-constant level lakes that don't, such as Canyon Lake. Most of these boat houses are made to entertain with patios, slides, bars, and more. If you are looking for a lake house on a constant level lake allowing waterfront improvements with a similar size and feel to that of Lake Travis, I highly recommend considering buying a home on Lake LBJ.
