Lake Home Buyer Series Part 3 - Lake types: how does water get into your lake? - 01/13/11 05:23 PM
Lake Home Buyer Series Part 3 - Lake types: how does water get into your lake? Here in Northwestern Wisconsin, it rained a lot last year; our long-term drought may be coming to an end. Unfortunately, we need a couple more years of this weather to fully recharge the water table. Although most lakes are unaffected, in a few cases extremely low water can mean bargain prices on lake homes and cabins. Hydrologists divide lakes into two main types: drainage and seepage. Drainage lakes have an inlet and outlet; they’re part of system that “drains” a watershed. They’re less affected (2 comments)

Price Beauty or Both - What seller's Need to do to sell now - 01/04/11 03:25 PM

And sometimes I suggest sellers invest in new light fixtures or a couple gallons of paint. Less than a hundred dollars, but a whole new look. In some cases, of course, it might be time for more major upgrades. There’s no simple answer that’s right for everyone. But if you do choose (0 comments)
