Lakeville has a wonderful Area Arts Center and this year the Arts Center is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary. There are many events planned for the 2011-2012 season including special concerts, receptions, and exhibits.
The Lakeville Arts Center is located in the historic All Saints Church building, creatively renovated to become a modern theater and arts facility. According to their website, The Arts Center promotes cultural enrichment and artistic experiences by offering many unique youth and adult art classes and a variety of theatrical productions.
Dates to put on your calendar include the 10th Anniversary Gala on September 10th and the Arts Festival on September 17th and 18th.
Cultural treasures such as the Lakeville Arts Center add value to local real estate. It’s not the kind of value we can calculate on a dollar for dollar basis, but it does add value for sure. The desirablilty of a community is based on many factors including Schools, Parks, Recreation, available Shopping, Commute Routes, successful Zoning and Planning and special features like the Lakeville Arts Center. All of these items, when taken together, form a Reputation among area Buyers. It’s this reputation of being a “sought after place to live” which gives added dollar values to the local Real Estate.
Over the 14 years I have been selling real estate South of the River, it’s been a pleasure to witness how Lakeville developed it’s favorable reputation among Home Buyers. I distinctly remember mentioning Lakeville to several clients when looking for houses more than a decade ago and the reaction from the buyer was always the same, “oh, Lakeville is too far out”, “Way out there?” “There’s nothing out there in Lakeville”, “Too far to drive for work”, “Not sure about the school system”.
In just a few years, and thanks to lots of available land and great decisions made by City Planners and School Officials, Lakeville is highly sought after by Buyers. When I work with clients looking for a home in Lakeville, their reasons for wanting to live in Lakeville are usually the School System, the Green and Clean look of the city, easy Commute Routes, Recreational Facilities, the Quaint Downtown and Availability of Large, Newer Homes for a reasonable price.
