NW WI Market Update: It’s Been a Long, Hot Winter (In Real Estate)

It’s been a long, cold winter, and spring is finally here.  But never mind the weather; this winter our local lake home and cabin market never did freeze up the way it sometimes can.  In fact, it’s been a long, hot winter.

During the past couple months, I’ve sold nearly my entire inventory of lake homes and cabins.  I need more quality listings now.

If you or anyone you know might be interesting in selling this year, please give me a call. Meanwhile, to learn more about what’s been selling, check out the gallery below.

Fall is a great time to sell in NW Wisconsin

Even as some sellers are winterizing their homes for the winter and heading south to snow bird land, serious, purposeful buyers are still on the hunt. At this very moment they’re getting pre-approved, researching lakes, and looking at potential properties.

Thinking of selling?  When you list with me you’ll enjoy these important benefits:

  • Strategic pricing that’s based on a thorough, local area market analysis. I help sellers make a sound, rational pricing decision that’s based on the best available information.  Here’s why:  If our price is too low, we leave money on the table.  If our price is too high, we leave your home on the market unsold.  But…  If we price your home correctly right from the very beginning, it’s more likely to get noticed and sell more quickly for the best possible sale price.  
  • Professional Magazine Quality Real Estate Photography. Buyers have lots of options; it can be tough to decide on a short list of homes they feel are worth seeing in person.  Great photos increase the odds that your home will make the cut.  Check out my listings for examples of the professional photography that will help your property stand out from the crowd.  To learn more, and to see a few examples right now, check out my Great Photos page.
  • We’re also providing stunning aerial photos and video. Although aerial photos and video still have novelty value, it’s no longer enough to send up a drone and press a button.This is a job for a skilled real estate photographer who uses a camera that happens to be mounted on a flying tripod. Just as with terrestrial photography, there’s more to this than just buying a camera and clicking a button. That’s why we’re willing to fly the extra mile for our clients.
  • The Power of Social Media and Internet Marketing. Today’s buyers are more connected than ever, and 95% of them begin their real estate shopping online.  I know how to leverage social media and market effectively on the internet, today’s #1 marketing tool.  You can find me and my listings at the Edina Realty website; on all three of our region’s MLSs; at my own personal real estate website and blog, on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter; at consumer sites like Zillow and; and more.
  • My Three MLSs and the Reach of Edina Realty. To ensure your listing will be seen by as many buyers as possible—and also by as many Realtors as possible—I belong to all three of our region’s MLS systems. What’s more, I’m proud to be associated with Edina Realty.  We’re a brand buyers know and trust. When you list with me you’ll benefit from the traffic there, at my own Edina Realty page, and at my own personal www.JeanHedrenRealtor.comwebsite and blog that you’re visiting right now. While you’re here, take a moment to explore. You’ll find lots of great information about up-north real estate, and also about northwest Wisconsin communities, our northern lakes and rivers, fishing and hunting information, little-known paddling spots, favorite NW WI biking and hiking routes, and more. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out my YouTube channel. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
