Outstanding Value on Madeline Island - 951 Snow Place Lane
 
Here's a Madeline Island listing that has been completely overlooked by buyers.  951 Snow Place Lane, LaPointe WI combines large, private acreage with a comfortable home, close to the Town of LaPointe and right next door to the Madeline Island Airport, all at a remarkably low price.
This property is bank-owned.  The bank wants it sold.  We rarely see bank-owned properties for sale on Madeline Island, but this one is filled with desirable features.

SOLD - Aircraft Hangar at Madeline Island Airport
 
It's not often that we list and sell an aircraft hangar, but we're very proud of this one.  Hangar number eight at the Madeline Island Airport, located at 777 Airport Drive, LaPointe, Wisconsin is now sold.
One of our clients (who purchased a waterfront home on Madeline Island late last autumn) decided he'd like to have a hangar for his private plane, and so this hangar was a perfect addition for him.  Quite a few of our summer homeowners on Madeline Island are also private pilots.

2231 N. Shore Rd, Madeline Island WI - Affordable Year-Round Home
 
This uber-charming Island cottage has plenty of potential.  Start with a well-built year round home, constructed from machined "D-logs" (logs rounded on the exterior side and flat on the inside) and a great open floor plan that makes efficient use of approximately 800 square feet of interior space.  There's also a large, comfortable screened porch which runs the entire length of the home, over three hundred square feet which could be wholly or partially converted to additional interior space (add a main floor bedroom & bath or expand the foyer/living room).

One of Northern Wisconsin's most celebrated historic estates, Woods Manor on Madeline Island is now a Closed Sale. This remarkable pedigreed property combines the ultimate Lake Superior view with classic architecture and Gatsby-era style.
The property was co-listed by Wayzata Lakes Realty and the buyer was procured by Madeline Island Realty.  This most recent upper-bracket pending sale on Madeline Island mirrors the 2012 sale of Coole Park Manor (formerly Brittany Bed & Breakfast Inn) on Old Fort Road.

Here's What Goes Into Showing Your Madeline Island Home in Winter

I spent the past weekend showing homes on Madeline Island.  It was an adventure in many ways, certainly not routine.  Showing homes on a snowy, wintry island in Lake Superior is never routine.
It occurred to me that most of my clients have no idea what's actually involved in showing their Madeline Island home during winter months.  Allow me to paint you a picture of what this is like.
Transportation: The 250-mile drive from Minneapolis - Saint Paul was uneventful.  Roads were cleared and dry, traffic wasn't bad … (3 comments)

A Closer Look at Madeline Island's Main Street Waterfront Neighborhood
 
 
A few years ago, a couple walked into our Madeline Island Realty office at 809 Main Street, in downtown LaPointe, Wisconsin.  They had just arrived on Madeline Island a few minutes earlier and they'd visited the Island many times in the past.
The male of the species pointed out our side window, facing south, and inqured, "got anything for sale down the street here on the waterfront side?"  I showed them our brochure with out the one available single-family waterfront home on Main Street.  He asked me how often these Main Street cottages and homes … (1 comments)

741 Main Street in LaPointe is a Part of Madeline Island History
Madeline Island Realty's most recent residential listing at 741 Main Street, La Pointe, Wisconsin, has quite a historic past. 
The first titled owner of the property at 741 Main Street was J. Austrian, who acquired the property in 1854.
The site of the Foster residence was formerly owned by Frank J. Albright in the early to mid-1900s and was the site of the Albright Boat Works.  Albright built a thriving business there, a combination hardware store, machine shop and plumbing supply depot which doubled as a fishing station.  According to the book … (0 comments)

lapointe: 483 Mondamin Trail, LaPointe, WI - Luxury Plus Accessibility Features - 12/02/12 11:50 AM
Over the past year, it seems I've been listing an increasing number of "accessible" dwellings, both in Northwest Wisconsin and in the Minneapolis and Saint Paul area.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I serve on several Diversity committees in the real estate community, including the Wisconsin Realtors Association (WRA) Diversity in Housing Committee.  And our State committee was responsible last year for the creation of an Accessibility Features Checklist, which makes it easier for both buyers and sellers to locate or market homes with these special features.
Also known as "barrier-free homes" or "handicap accessible properties", homes like … (1 comments)

Northwest Wisconsin Appraisers Rely on Madeline Island Realty Recent Sales to Determine Values  
Recent property appraisals on Madeline Island have consistently made use of comparable sales statistics from sales by Madeline Island Realty over the past eighteen months.  One such appraisal used our 2011 co-listing and sale of 2984 North Shore Road, LaPointe, WI 54850 as a benchmark for determining value of an upper-bracket Madeline Island home (that sale was mentioned in a January 2011 Wall Street Journal article by S. Mitra Kalita).
Our recent sales show up on appraisals for good reason.  Madeline Island Realty sells properties on Madeline … (1 comments)

Madeline Island Came to Life This Past Weekend
 
The weekend of March 17 & 18, 2012 will be one for the history books on Madeline Island.  With record high temperatures in the 60s and low 70s, the weekend was a revival of spring that comes two months ahead of schedule.
Most of the snow on Madeline Island is gone now, except for spots where plows and snowblowers have piled it.  The ferry crossing from Bayfield to the Island is remarkably tranquil, with few ice chunks striking the ferry hull as you cross.  Everywhere you look, there are signs of spring … (0 comments)

The best part of making a property sale is the happy ending.  When we sold a vacant lakeshore lot at 3720 North Shore Road, LaPointe in October of 2010, our buyers were dreaming of building a new home on Madeline Island.  Now it appears that dream is much closer to becoming a reality.

Yesterday, a prospective buyer walked into our Madeline Island real estate office to inquire about a vacant land property not far from downtown.
She asked me if I could provide information on that particular property.  When I did a Google Search for the address, I realized that she had the fire number (same as a house number here on Madeline Island) wrong, but at least she was close.  After searching for quite awhile, I was finally able to locate the property, which happens to be listed by a competitor.
