Waterfront property in Idaho is an incredible real estate investment. The state of Idaho has an abundance of ground water in the form of lakes, rivers, streams, and springs. Having water on your property can add to the charm of your landscaping, allow you to have your own fish pond, or provide a great place for the kids to play in the warm Idaho summers. You can find homes and cabins on rivers and streams, lakes, and even large ditches used for irrigation. One important aspect of waterfront property is understanding water rights. Before you buy a home, you'll need to investigate what water rights come with the property and whether you're allowed to draw irrigation water from the water source. Some water rights are easy to investigate. Some water rights will require an attorney to review before your purchase is completed.
