nw wisconsin: NW Wisconsin real estate market news - 05/05/19 09:15 AM
I have several buyers who are patiently watching the MLS listings for an especially good deal.  I’ve also been passing along listings that seem like a good fit.  Sometimes buyers have been ready to move quickly, and that’s paid off.
Other buyers were busy with work and family commitments, and they needed to wait a couple weeks before we could schedule a showing.  Sometimes that still works out.  But other times I’ve requested a showing and learned that another buyer has just made an offer that’s already been accepted.  Notice a pattern here???
I’m a Realtor, and of course you’d expect me to … (1 comments)

nw wisconsin: What are the three most important items on your dream lake cabin list? - 01/29/16 06:06 AM
What are the three most important items on your dream lake cabin list?
We all think differently. The property that’s perfect for you might not be perfect for me or for anyone else. Those three most important items might be the type or size of lake, the perfect swimming beach, other recreation activities, the cabin style that best fits your lifestyle, the number of bedrooms, the garage size, distance from home, and certainly your budget.
Make a list of what's most important. Trade-offs may be necessary within a particular price range. If you find the cabin and lake of your dreams, what are you willing to trade … (4 comments)

nw wisconsin: Resolved to sell? Don't delay until May. - 01/23/16 01:13 AM
Resolved to sell? Don’t delay until May. 16649 S Eagle Point Rd, Wascott, WI It’s late January. If you’ve resolved that it’s time to move on to the next stage of your life, and if your new year’s resolution involves real estate, then I’d like to suggest a second resolution: Don’t delay until May. Get started now.
Around here sellers, buyers, and even Realtors can often think a little too seasonally. Summer might be the only time of the year we can grow tomatoes in northern Wisconsin, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only time of year we can produce real estate … (0 comments)

Welcome to the undiscovered northwest corner of Northwest Wisconsin. We're closer than you think, and it's a great place to get more lake home for your money.
The northwest corner of northwest Wisconsin remains largely undiscovered. In the minds of many vacationers and home buyers from the Twin Cities, Eau Claire, or Chicago, there’s a large blank area on the map of Wisconsin; it extends all the way from Duluth to Hayward. It’s time to fill in the blank.

nw wisconsin: Seller's Big Mistake: Loses sale over failed septic system - 01/20/14 12:20 AM
Seller's Big Mistake: Loses sale over failed septic system
Last Fall during the final negotiations of a lake home sale, my seller's chose to ignore my advice about a strong buyer's market. They did not live in the area and were not familiar with the local real estate market. 
The buyers had a home, well, and septic inspection. The inspection uncovered the septic tank was breached by roots. In other words, the septic system failed, and by county standards, would need to be replaced.
The sellers thinking they were savvy negotiators tried to put the cost of the replacement on the … (3 comments)
