Finally, spring has sprung! No more snowy forecasts. Longer, warmer days are bringing folks outside to enjoy the sunshine, blooming flowers and beautiful Lake Gaston. We've had a significant increase in potential buyers out looking at Lake Gaston properties for sale too.  The improving economy, increasing consumer confidence and low mortgage rates help motivate potential buyers.  There is a lack of inventory, of quality homes priced correctly in certain price ranges, that holds back some buyers.
