It’s 2019. Where’s your new up north cabin?

If you’ve resolved that this is the year to buy a new lake home or cabin in northwest Wisconsin, then it’s time to get started.

If one of your new year’s resolutions was to find a new lake home or cabin and get moved in before Memorial Day weekend, well, then I am a little concerned.

Here’s why: It may take us a while to find the lake and the cabin that are just right for you. Figure a little negotiating before you have an accepted offer, and then typically about another 60 days before the actual closing can take place. (With new banking regulations that have recently gone into effect, the few exceptions are generally cash offers with no inspections or other contingencies. They can usually happen faster.)

So if you’d like to enjoy weekends at your new cabin this summer, it may not make sense to delay your search until May or June. If you want to actually own that cabin by May or June, then the time to get started is right now.

If we get underway quickly and things happen fast, there’s still one situation when a late spring could complicate your plans. That’s if you’re buying a three-season cabin that has its water turned off in the winter. You’ll probably want an inspection, and it’s hard to inspect a cabin’s well, septic system, and plumbing without turning on the water. But even then, I’m usually able to help buyers and sellers work things out.

And if you’re buying a year-round lake home or cabin, the best time to buy is… Year-round. So if you’re ready to turn those up-north cabin dreams into reality, give me a call now at 218-590-6634. Or, you can reach me at jeanhedren@edinarealty.com.

Where in the World is 14088 E Sunny Shores Drive?

This charming northwest Wisconsin lake home is located on a quiet corner of Lower Eau Claire Lake, not far from where the Eau Claire River exits the lake and flows westward to join the Saint Croix River at Gordon.  It includes a guest cabin, boathouse, and large detached garage.

To see exactly where 14088 E Sunny Shores Drive is located, and to enjoy brief but spectacular drone footage of the home and its setting on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes, just click on the video.

If one of your new year’s resolutions was to find a new lake home or cabin and get moved in before Memorial Day weekend, well, then I am a little concerned.

Here’s why: It may take us a while to find the lake and the cabin that are just right for you. Figure a little negotiating before you have an accepted offer, and then typically about another 45-60 days before the actual closing can take place.

So if you’d like to enjoy weekends at your new cabin this summer, it may not make sense to delay your search until May or June. If you want to actually own that cabin by May or June, then the time to get started is right now.

Spring has arrived on Breakfast Lake, Barnes, WI. Time to hit the deck!

Spring has arrived on Breakfast Lake, Barnes, WI. Time to hit the deck!

Spring is here, and it’s time to hit the deck and relax by the lake. Here’s another in a continuing series of “hit the deck” posts—this time from a cabin I’m currently listing on a small lake in Barnes, WI. It happens to be just up the shore from the cabin in my previous post. (To learn more, please visit my Edina Realty website.)

The real estate market in Northwest Wisconsin is heating up, and this has been one of my busiest spring seasons ever. Here’s another in a series of “just sold” posts.

I love this home’s log siding, open floor plan, upstairs loft, and great views of Lower Eau Claire Lake. I’m betting its new owners will, too.

Check back often; I’ll have fresh new listings coming online soon. As always, I’ll be happy to show you other agents’ listings, too.

In my previous post, I wrote about how rec rooms and party rooms aren’t just for extroverts, and how certain spaces are just right for certain occasions. Like the previous example from the Minong Flowage, this home in Solon Springs gives you options.

(If you like what you see… This home is in a quiet corner of Solon Springs; it offers in-town convenience but the privacy of country living. Keep scrolling for a couple photos of the exterior. And to learn more, please visit my Edina Realty website.)
