The second post today regarding the real estate market in hot Springs,arkansas. This will give mls data on active listings that are classified as waterfront, then I'll break it down into the 2 lakes. Keep in mind that this is only as accurate as listing agents actually ENTER the data, but it will be close.

First, the general table, all waterfront homes (and manufactured) in Garland County, Hot Springs' county:

There are 166 current active listings;

 
LIST PRICE:
 
HIGH LOW AVERAGE MEDIAN TOTAL PRICE
$4,500,000
$94,900
$580,957
$449,950
$96,438,999
 
 

This encompasses all waterfront... could be creekfront or riverfront as well. Let's play with it a bit.

Changing the data to reflect asking prices on Lake Catherine we find:

LIST PRICE:
 
HIGH LOW AVERAGE MEDIAN TOTAL PRICE
$545,000
$97,500
$276,526
$259,000
$5,254,000
 

 This is 19 homes listed... Lake Catherine is smaller and also stretches out of the county.

Looking to Lake Hamilton homes for sale:

123 homes listed,

LIST PRICE:
 
HIGH LOW AVERAGE MEDIAN TOTAL PRICE
$4,500,000
$99,900
$627,202
$495,000
$77,145,900

There are 15 over the 800k mark. Lake Hamilton is larger, with more shoreline. 2 different lakes, each with its own merits. Very different markets, yet they are a stones throw away from one another.
