Summer is hot and so is the real estate market. Now is a great time to sell.

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

NW Wisconsin Realtor achieves national recognition

I’m delighted to announce that I’ve just earned my official Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation from the National Association of Realtors, joining more than 25,000 real estate professionals across the globe who have earned the ABR® designation.  It was a little work, but it was totally worth it—for me and for you.

So what does it take to earn the ABR®designation, and how does me being an ABR®benefit you as a buyer?  Let me explain.  

The ABR®designation is only awarded to licensed real estate professionals who complete specialized training that gives them the edge in understanding a buyer’s perspective—and also in protecting and promoting their buyer-client’s interests.  In addition to completing certain courses, I also needed to document the long track record I already had in successfully representing buyers. 

So what’s in it for you?  As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), I’m better equipped to:

  • Understand your specific needs and help you find the lake home or cabin that’s right for you.
  • Advise you in formulating your offer and help you develop an effective negotiating strategy.
  • Keep track of every detail throughout the transaction—to closing and beyond.

When you work with me, you can feel confident that you’ll receive the highest possible level of buyer representation services.  And that, in a nutshell, is what’s in it for you.

So while I also enjoy listing properties for sellers, I’m delighted to announce that I’m now officially an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®).  Whether you’re thinking of buying orselling, I’d love to hear from you.  Just give me a call at (218) 590-6634.

P.S. — Wondering how those other letters after my name might benefit you? Here’s the scoop:

CRS: The Certified Residential Specialist® (CRS) designation is a symbol of excellence in real estate. The highest credential awarded to residential sales agents, managers, and brokers, CRS certification recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education.

SRES: A Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES) is a Realtor® who’s met certain educational requirements that help us better address the unique needs of home buyers and sellers age 50+. By earning the SRES® designation, I’ve demonstrated the knowledge and expertise required to counsel clients age 50+ through major financial and lifestyle transitions when they’re relocating, refinancing, or selling the family home or cabin. Given our current demographic trends here in NW WI (especially in our local lake home and cabin market), these skills benefit a large percentage of my buyers and sellers.

RSPS: The Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS) certification is awarded to Realtors who complete additional CRS coursework related to the buying, selling, or management of properties for investment, development, retirement, or second homes in resort, recreational, and/or vacation destinations. Since I specialize in northwest Wisconsin lake homes and cabins, this extra background in recreational properties and second homes benefits a large percentage of my buyers and sellers.
