Fishhawk Lake Vacant Lots Many Choices, Many Options

qafl-06There are still vacant lots for purchase both on the lake and off-the-lake at our private lake community known as Fishhawk Lake. You can find some that will carry a private contract, terms negotiable. The pricing can range from ridiculously low, say about $10,000 to waterfront at $80,000 currently.

If you don’t feel like building right away, that is just fine! You can camp FOREVER if you would like to. Or camp for awhile, sock that money away, pick your plans and THEN build. The Homeowner’s Association has certain restrictions to be aware of in your search for the building plans. It must be no smaller than 900 square feet and stick built with a foundation. No manufactured homes and no yurts! (I have been asked about both over the years as the full time resident/realtor at Fishhawk Lake).

Some important points to be aware of:

  •  You can leave a recreational vehicle on your lot for up to 60 days PER YEAR. That’s all. We like to keep our community pristine and that means no blue tarps, no non-working trucks hanging out looking trashy.
  • Water and sewer are “available”, some lots already have it hooked up, some don’t. It will cost you $1,000 per utility for hook-up. Contact the Fishhawk Lake office for information on how to do this: (503)755-2132.
  • You can cut trees down for the footprint of the property only unless they are alders.
  • Bring your building plans to the architectural committee who meets once a month at the Fishhawk Lake clubhouse. You don’t have to have plans to scale, but a good set of drawings, paint chips and anything else that is pertinent would be good to bring with you.
  • Any purchase of a home or a vacant lot at Fishhawk Lake will also include a $1,000 transfer fee at closing. The buyer pays this. If you happen to be buying a home with an extra lot, you will owe $2,000 at closing.
  • Homeowner’s association fees are currently $1442.00 per year and include all of your water and sewer usage as well as all lake amenities. It is the same fee whether you own a vacant lot OR a home at Fishhawk Lake.
