nw wisconsin real estate: Legal drone photos: let’s show buyers a bird’s-eye view of YOUR home or cabin - 01/02/18 01:17 PM
One of the many advantages of listing your lake home or cabin with me is that I provide ALL my sellers with professional, magazine-quality real estate photography that helps their property stand out from the crowd. The difference isn’t just artsy or technical, and it’s a difference that really matters.
And now... I’m also providing aerial photos and video. My husband Al is an FAA-certified Remote Pilot who can legally fly small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) for commercial purposes.
Although aerial photos and video still have novelty value, it’s no longer enough to send up a drone and press a button. This isn’t a … (2 comments)

nw wisconsin real estate: Home buyers, consider the lake home or cabin of your dreams (Interior) - 01/11/14 06:28 AM
Home buyers, consider the lake home or cabin of your dreams (Interior) Before you look closely at the home's interior condition, there’s another question you should be asking yourself: “Is this the right lake home or cabin for me?”  Consider carefully its:
Size.  Your perfect weekend getaway, for example, could turn out to be just a little too cozy after you’ve retired and you’re living there year-round, seven days a week.  But a home or cabin that’s too large will mean extra rooms to heat, cool, and clean.  If you’re an empty-nester, maybe you no longer need such a large nest. Number of bedrooms.  Sure, … (0 comments)

Home buyers: A first look at the property's exterior condition
This post supplements my earlier one about what to look for in a home's interior. When you're looking over the exterior, check out the:
Foundation. Floors poured concrete. Walls concrete or cinder blocks. No evidence of water seepage or moisture problems. Note that minor settling cracks are not usually structurally significant. Doors and windows. Easy to open and close. Easy storm and/or screen removal and installation. Newer windows are usually more insulative. Roof. Gutters and downspouts in good condition. If older home, know how long shingles have been in use. (Metal or rubber roofs … (0 comments)

Even when a home or cabin immediately feels like it might be "the one", take time to check out the:
Electrical system. Standard house current, number of circuits, outlets, and fuses or circuit breakers is sufficient for everyday needs. Floors. Condition of flooring. Whether plank or plywood. Solid bridging and joists. Walls. Condition. Whether drywall or plaster. Absence of water marks. Appliances and fixtures. Everything in working order. Bathroom and kitchen fixtures in good shape. Attic. Sufficiently insulated and ventilated. Later, if you decide to make an offer, you can make … (0 comments)

nw wisconsin real estate: Preapproval: Strengthen your negotiating power - 12/04/13 04:35 AM
Preapproval: Strengthen your negotiating power
A preapproval letter from your mortgage lender can be an important tool to strengthen your negotiating power. Sellers and listing agents tend to take offers more seriously when the buyer has been preapproved.
When you have found your dream home, and you are ready to make an offer, submitting a preapproval letter with the offer says you are a serious and committed buyer.
A preapproval letter is based on a preliminary review of your credit information and preapproves you up to a maximum loan amount. Because a preapproval includes a credit check, it’s more powerful than a prequalification … (3 comments)

Don't wait, the time to buy is now: Tips for a NW Wisconsin real estate market in transition
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 on at least half a dozen occasions during the past few months, I’ve asked for … (0 comments)

nw wisconsin real estate: Live on Spider Lake, commute to work in the city. Douglas County WI offers the best of both worlds - 02/03/12 12:48 AM
If your dream is to live in the country, or on a lake, and commute to work in the city, Douglas County in NW Wisconsin offers big woods and many clear, deep lakes within commuting distance to Duluth or Superior.
Highway 53 is a 4-lane freeway that connects Duluth/Superior to Eau Claire. It’s a good road and even in the winter months, the plows and sanding trucks respond immediately to keep travel safe during winter storms.
Many of my friends and neighbors in the Gordon and Wascott communities work in Duluth; they say it’s a 45-minute drive without the stress of big-city traffic.

Yesterday, I congratulated two of my buyers when they closed on their new home here in Northwestern Wisconsin.  They sold their home in the Twin Cities metro area, and they’re really excited to be living here in the north woods.
Earlier in the process, however, they experienced a few tense moments.  They’re getting a great deal, and someone else thought the home seemed like a good buy, too.  Suddenly, my buyers found themselves in a multiple-offer situation.  Fortunately they were pre-approved, their financing was … (0 comments)
