The Market is HOT on Forest Lake!
Even though the snow hasn't melted and the ice is still on the lakes....Spring is coming and with it is the hot spring lake home market on Forest Lake and surrounding area.
This long winter has affected the lake home market as inventory is LOW right now. This is the perfect time to place your house on the market because there are buyer's ready to act quickly and this is good news for sellers. Click HERE to see a market report that shows homes that are For Sale, under contract and have sold within the last 6 months on Forest Lake.
This may not be the time for you to sell, but if you have friends that are considering making a move, please give them our number. Homes are selling before they hit the market. We just sold one on 1st Lake after competing in multiple offers and the home never even went on the MLS! Lake home values have never been higher than they are right now. We would be happy to put our experience to work for you or those you recommend to us.
If you are a lake home buyer our advice to you is to make sure you have all your ducks in a row before heading out to look at homes. If you are financing, make sure you have a pre-approval letter in hand by a trusted lending professional. We would be happy to recommend a few that we have worked with in the past and we trust. Be ready to make fast decisions and put your best foot forward. You will more than likely be in a multiple offer situation. You won't want to miss out on your dream home over just a few thousand dollars. Our team will help guide you through this process however you will need to find the home first and that is where the added benefit of using a Realtor will come in handy. Realtors that know the market are networking with other Realtors. We have knowledge of many of those listings before they hit the market. Don't trust the retail sites that have dated information....or don't have the information at all. Put us to work for you to do the ground work and find exactly what you are looking for using our resources.
Hopefully within the next month Spring will start to show, the lake will be melted and you will be out enjoying the area lakes. Until then, take care and stay warm!
Thank you for allowing us to be your real estate resource.
