 Door County Properties You Should Buy NOW

to Enjoy in 2020


For the most part, it's a Seller's Market in northern Door County as I write this in December of 2019.  Now, if you've been with me since the start of this year (or this blog), you know that I've taken you through the good times and the bad, from pre-recession through the heart of the recession to the better times that really only started in northern Door during the summer of 2016.  I have reported on the homes that were of good value, how long they were on the market and tried to help our Buyers make educated decisions (and tried to price my Sellers' homes to sell in ALL markets).  As we head into 2020, I am offering my thoughts on the top Door County homes, land, condominiums, and business opportunities that you should pursue NOW to enjoy in 2020 as prices continue to rise and the market continues to tighten in northern Door County.


Door County Properties for Sale with MaryKay Shumway

We all know three things sell a listings:  location, condition and price During the past few years, we have watched Baileys Harbor, Egg Harbor and Sister Bay swell with new businesses and attractions. We are currently watching Fish Creek improve its beach, and we are still witnessing a shortage of Ephraim homes and condominiums for sale.  The one constant, of course, has been location, condition, and price, and as prices continue to bump up, here are our picks for the top DEALS in homes, land, businesses or condominiums in northern Door County to put you in a PRIME position to enjoy Door County in 2020.  As our market changes weekly, feel free to contact me to talk about the Door County real estate market.  I don't have a crystal ball, but I can tell you which of our office's listings are experiencing good activity and which may be sleepers, off the public radar, that are good opportunities.  Here are our top picks for Door County homes and condominiums that you should BUY NOW as prices continue to rise:
