Somewhere out there is the home of your dreams. You just have to find it.
When you know you’ve found the right property, make an offer quickly. Hesitating for a day to think it over can mean losing your dream lake home or cabin. Ask your Realtor about local market conditions and get advice about preparing a strong offer. In addition to price and closing date, your offer may contain various contingencies like financing and inspections.
Negotiate terms. Counter offers are common. In order to successfully close on a property, be prepared to be a little flexible on price, closing date, repairs, or other items.

In all the years I’ve been in this business, no one has ever told me they wish they’d waited another ten or fifteen years to buy their lake home or cabin.
Sure, it’s good to be prudent. And hard-working couples, especially those with with young children, may not have a lot of extra time or money. Someday, after they’re retired and their children are grown and gone, they’ll have plenty of both.
But instead of waiting for someday, right now is a great time to begin building memories at your cabin or lake home. And at this stage of your life, there’s no need to skip directly to the luxury lake home where you plan to live out your retirement.
If you’re ready, I’d be glad to show you a couple of those dream lake homes; I’m listing a few of them right now. But I can also show you some surprisingly affordable alternatives. You might call them “starter cabins.”
Sure, you may need to make a few compromises. But when your kids grow up, they won’t remember that the kitchen in your cabin didn’t feature high-end stainless steel appliances. They’ll remember roasting marshmallows and making s’mores down at the campfire. They won’t remember that your cabin wasn’t on the biggest lake with the biggest muskies. They’ll remember all the four-inch bluegills they caught from the end of your dock.
Maybe someday is today. If you’re ready to turn those up-north cabin dreams into reality, give me a call now. To get started right now, give me a call at 218-590-6634. Or, you can reach me at email@example.com.
Pricing your home right from the start can result in a quicker sale. When you sell your home you not only need a qualified buyer, but your house also has to qualify.
The majority of home buyers obtain financing to make a purchase. A home appraisal is a key step in the financing process. This means that if the selling price is $280,000, but your home is appraised at $250,000, buyers can either walk from the sale or request a price adjustment in order for the transaction to close.
So, keeping this in mind, it’s best to position the price correctly from the start. Learning how other local area properties are selling is a key part of the selling strategy. To be competitive in your area, learn what other properties are qualifying for.
