White Bear Lake Ice Fishing by Teri Eckholm REALTOR

A look at today’s temperatures and you would wonder if it was a Minnesota winter after all. We should be knee deep in snow and wrapped head to toe in wool scarves and Snuggies! But today was a sunny 45 degrees in the Twin Cities north and east metro! It was a snowless winter day in Minnesota that had people are heading for the golf course and dreaming of being out on the lakes! In a normal January, any plan to visit a lake would include boots and/or a snowmobile to get to that ice house to fish. But this winter season has been full of surprises which could be a huge benefit to the astute Minnesota lake home buyer.

One benefit of this unseasonably warm weather makes it a very good time to consider buying lakeshore. Usually it is a bit dicey to contemplate buying a Minnesota Lake Home in the winter. Not so this year as the warmer weather and lack of snow cover makes it easier to assess the shoreline and walk around the property. Combine that with the low interest rates and lower demand for lakeshore homes in the winter and potential lake home owners could spend the Fishing Opener and Memorial Day weekend with the lakeview they have always dreamed of just outside their window.
Are you considering buying a Minnesota Lake Home this year? Here are a few tremendous deals on lakeshore that I noted in from Chisago City to Shoreview and several places in between. If you are dreaming of owning a home on Forest Lake or White Bear Lake, these bargain prices might get you off the fence before the calendar says the winter is over.
