A septic inspection is required to secure financing (on houses with septic systems) in the Yuba City, Northern California area. If you are paying all cash then there is not such a requirement as you would be accepting all the risk.

I would not consider purchasing a septic system property without an inspection first; even if I had to pay for the inspection and pumping myself.

This home was settled on 11.23.2009 for $220K as a short sale. This is a loss of over $50K from the prior settlement in Oct 2006.

If you are looking to get comparables for your own home, I would be glad to run one for you.

I hope that helped,

Hi Dan,

Could you give us a little idea of your price range. Here in South Central Pa, there are a couple of Lakes that have home communities surrounding them. We also have a number of wider spots on the Susquehanna river that are sometimes called lakes.
I specialize in these waterfront homes in Lancaster, York, Adams counties in particular. Two homes on my part of the Susquehanna that are currently active on the market are listed in the $500K range. There are homes for sale in the Lake Meade community that are closer to $250K, but these may not be direct waterfront.
Charles' question about your planned use is very important too. Some of the cottages on leased land would not be suitable for year round use. Others are standard homes with sewer and water, insulation, heat controlled by thermostat, parking facilities, and roads that are drivable in all seasons.
It is also important to know if you are just going to look at the water, or if you want to get into it! We do lots of boating on my section of the river, but it is rare for anybody to swim in it. Some folks do water ski, or use personal watercraft, but you have to go to a different area if you plan to ski and swim on a consistant basis.

Lake Meade is beautiful in the summer. I think they still drop the water level in the winter which makes boating not very practical.

The Lancaster county community called Pequea has homes that are high on a hill with a beautiful view, but you have to cross the railroad tracks to get to the water. (over land, or via the creek and underpass)

If Lancaster York, Adams counties interest you please do feel free to give me a call with your specifics, or email me. I would love to help.
