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

Why Lakefront Buyers Miss the Boat  

Most vacation home and cabin buyers in Minnesota purchase properties that are at least a couple hours from their main residence.  If you are much closer than that, it just doesn't seem as much like a place to get away from it all.  In fact, if you are less than an hour away, it may be too easy to run home and do chores that you just can't get off your mind -- or even head to work for a few hours to catch up on some things at the office.  But if you can get far enough away, you tend to forget about those other issues that can probably wait in first place, and you will relax more because of it.

Since most of those lakefront buyers also need to travel to find the perfect place on water, they need to find a time to do that -- oftentimes in the spring.  And just like them, it seems that all the other people have the same thing in mind.

If you can beat the rush or be available to take a look at a place as soon as it comes on the market, you can often find the right place before someone else is also interested in it.  There is always a lot of junk on the market -- even on the water -- so the good places go quickly.  Find a good lakeshore agent who will update you with the best new listings every day, and you will win the race to your new lake place.
