Crows Nest Estates Condominium


How do you choose the best Door County condominium deal?  


First, we start with your specific circumstances for purchase.  Are you looking to offset your purchase with rental?  If so, we can take several of the upper end developments OFF your list, because Hidden Harbor, Crows Nest Estates, Hidden Maples, The Oaks Mariners Point and several others have rental restrictions that are purposely prohibitive for rental.  Those developments were created for privacy and exclusivity.  Others, like Skogland, Timber Ridge Estatesand Birchwood Villas allow rentals, but their polices differ.  


The Yacht Club at Sister Bay has a liberal rental policy, which will help offset your purchase (right on the water!) but prices are higher there than other smaller rental developments.  Things like amenities encourage rental...pools, fitness centers, or walk-downtown locations.  IF RENTAL IS IMPORTANT TO YOU WHEN PURCHASING A DOOR COUNTY CONDOMINIUM, please contact me.  I've been involved in the start-up and sales of several condominium developments, and I can help.  If you're thinking hotel condominium for rental purposes, I'll tell you the truth.  Some make money, some do not.  We currently have some lovely hotel condominium units available for sale at The Birchwood Lodge, but with a hotel condominium in Door  County, the purpose should be to OFFSET your purchase price--not plan on becoming a rental millionaire.

Do you own pets?   Pets can be a big NO with many condominiums, but we know which developments are pet friendly.  So if having your Golden Lab on vacation with you (or at your new permanent residence), please contact me....I keep a list of pet-friendly condominiums and have helped many people downsize from primary homes to condominium living...and of course they are often bringing beloved pets with them.  I can help you find the right community where you AND your pet(s) will be welcome.  You might be surprised to find out how many condominium communities do NOT allow pets.



Hidden Maples is pet-friendly



Do you want to pay for amenities?  If you have four little girls under the age of five (true story), then a pool in the summer is a big deal.  If you like to get away in the winter and enjoy year-round amenities, then you might really enjoy Northhaven Condominiums or Cottage Glen at Ellison Bay, with indoor pools and fitness centers.  However, maybe that tennis court (and its maintenance in your annual dues) really isn't important to you.  Maybe you KNOW you're not interested in a pickle-ball court and don't want to pay for same (extremely popular in Door County).  Remember, dues are a recurring expense, and they differ with every development in what they cover.  We KNOW Door County condominiums, and we can help you narrow your search.

Do you know the value of an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR)?   We've covered this topic before with housing purchases, but using an ABR is invaluable when it comes to purchasing a Door County condominium, because we are familiar with where the BEST Door County condominium deals are.  We work FOR YOU, and if I feel a unit is overpriced, I can show you statistics as your Buyer Agent to help you make an intelligent purchase. Using an ABR is an incredibly valuable service, and it allows you to save both time and MONEY on your Door County condominium purchase.  I am an Accredited Buyer Representative under the National Association of Realtors, and I can put my knowledge of Door County Condominiums to work for you to help you find the BEST Door County condo deals.


WHATEVER YOUR CONDOMINIUM CIRCUMSTANCES ARE, I CAN HELP.  Knowledge, experience in negotiations, time lines, executive summaries, delivery of documents, inspections.....together, we'll work to find you the BEST Door County condominium for sale for your unique circumstances, in every price point.

Buying a condo is an excellent choice for professionals who have travel schedules or work schedules that make it difficult to keep up with exterior maintenance that they would otherwise have to do on a single family home.
