Hints, Advice and Market Updates for Waterfront Buyers & Sellers...by Cap'n Dan

Scooping Up The Best Deals Of Late Summer 

As the summer winds down, a lot of lake cabin sellers begin to get a little nervous if they haven't had any offers.  Although quite a few of the places still sitting out there are a bit worn out or have other issues causing waterfront buyers not to jump on them, there are a lot of lake homes and cabins that may have been priced a little high earlier and have now come down a fair amount.  And many of those are in very nice condition.

Part of the problem is that as market times get longer, fewer buyers are interested -- and showings dwindle.  Most serious buyers these days are watching the market daily for new listings and price drops, and they tend to forget about the ones that are somewhat shop-worn.

So get out and see what is on the lakeshore market with your agent, and try to look past the price a little bit.  If the other characteristics are what you have in mind, make and offer and see where you end up.  You just might be surprised.

Search for Property - Just click any waterfront area down the left side of this page, or on the Minnesota and Wisconsin maps. You will be routed directly to Lake Properties and Local Area Information in that market area. And click here for our unique County-by-County Lake Chart.
