Purchasing a lake home or cabin is different than buying a primary residence in a town or city. Whether the lake home will be your main residence or a second vacation home, there are other considerations to understand. This series Buying your dream lake cabin will provide you with some basics about the type of lake, the type of home or cabin, and other information you need to know to make the best decision, and a good investment, about purchasing a lake home or cabin.
Just as in buying any home or property, here are the first steps to take:
Visit with your loan officer and get pre-approved, or have proof of cash funds
Know your budget– what the bank will loan you.
Know the area you want to cover. The most efficient use of your time and the Realtor’s time will be an area of not more than 50 miles radius of a specific town, or, in general, the county, if you know that.
Do your initial research online. Have a general idea of what the market is doing; you can ask your Realtor good questions to confirm.
Find a knowledgeable Realtor. Someone that knows the local area well, the lakes, towns, and information about the area.
Meet first to begin a good relationship. Ask lots of questions. Your Realtor will be doing the same to get to know you and begin the process of finding the properties most appropriate to your needs and life style.

Right NOW is a great time to sell your home or cabin in NW Wisconsin.
Summer is in full mode and serious buyers are active. If you’re ready to sell your lake home or cabin, now is the time to be on the market.
Buyers are eager to enjoy their new homes all year round. In the fall there’s hunting, fishing, paddling, hiking, biking, and ATVing. In the winter there’s skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and just relaxing by the fire. Every spring, long before the water is warm enough for swimming, we’re blessed with months of weather that’s perfect for enjoying the great outdoors in other ways.
So if you’re ready to move on to the next stage of your life, then maybe it’s time to make your move.
Keep in mind, too, that listing your home today doesn’t mean moving out next Tuesday. Even after we’ve done a little negotiating and you’ve accepted a buyer’s offer, more time will elapse before there’s an actual closing. Typically, unless it’s a cash offer with no inspections or other contingencies, that’s about another 45-60 days.
And for all the rest of you selling a year-round lake home or cabin, the best time to find buyers is… Year-round. So if you’d like to learn more about what your home is likely to sell for in our current market, give me a call now. Jean Hedren, Edina Realty, NW Wisconsin. 218-590-6634. Visit www.JeanHedren.com

I’m proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Vatten Paddlar canoe and kayak race, which will be held July 6 on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes in Barnes, Wisconsin. I’m grateful for this opportunity to support our local community, and also to spread the word about the natural beauty of the lakes and rivers in this part of northwest Wisconsin.
I suspect a few paddlers and their families have enjoyed extra weekends in the area while checking out the course. (If you haven’t been able to do that,check out my earlier blog post for a little virtual scouting.) While you’re at it, please come on back to explore some of our other lakes and rivers, too.
Our local area is famous for paddling on rivers like the Brule, Saint Croix, and Namekagon, but we also have lots of lakes that are great for flatwater paddling. Even most of the larger, more open lakes have lots of sheltered bays to explore. Take, for example, the 1,564-acre Minong Flowage, with its meandering, 24.8 mile shoreline. Or, there’s the 1,913-acre Gordon Flowage (also known as the Saint Croix Flowage), which has over 27 miles of shoreline and lots of isolated bays that offer a near-wilderness experience. Hug the shoreline for a single lap, and there’s a pretty decent workout.
If you’re racing, even recreationally, then you’re not afraid to paddle upstream now and then. That opens up lots more options. Here’s just one example: Instead of merely paddling downstream from Solon Springs and Upper Saint Croix Lake to the Gordon Flowage, you could start in the Gordon Flowage, paddle upstream to Upper Saint Croix Lake, and then paddle back on down to your starting point.
Feeling less ambitious today? No problem. Here’s a fast canoe being paddled slowly on a quiet corner of the Saint Croix Flowage near Gordon, Wisconsin. Enjoy!
Proud to sponsor this NW Wisconsin canoe race. A beautiful day for a canoe race. Vattenpaddler July 6, 2019. 10 mile and 5 mile canoe, kayak, SUP races on NW Wisconsin beautiful Eau Claire Chain of Lakes, Barnes and Gordon, WI.
