If you’re considering making a move up to a home on the lake next spring or summer, now is the time to start getting ready. You may not be thinking too much about the lake and/or boating now that the lake is frozen solid and a few flakes of snow are blowing about but this is when you should start thinking about it. If you have a home to sell, you need to start getting it ready right now. You should contact your Realtor of choice (preferably ME) and let them give you an idea of what your home might sell for and what you need to do to fix it up and get it ready. You might even consider putting it on the market right away. Buyers are out looking now and they’re serious about buying. You get a lot of tire-kickers in the prime season. Anyone looking right now is ready to buy. With the low interest rates, this is a terrific time to sell your home.
You could also start looking at what’s available on the lake. Right now there are 26 homes available on Prior Lake, ranging in price from $299,900 for a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 3000 square foot townhouse to $4.9 million for a 5 bedroom, 8 bath, almost 10,000 square foot home on a point. There are five homes under $400,000, eight homes between $400,000 and $600,000, eight homes from $600,000 to $1 million, and 5 homes over $1 million. If you’d like to see more information on them, simply click on the “Home Search” link above and scroll down to “Lakeshore Homes for Sale”. You can also see what’s available on Spring Lake, Lake Minnetonka, and Lake Waconia. Take a look and let me know if you’d like to visit any of the homes. I’d be happy to show them to you.
More homes will no doubt be coming on the market in the spring but there’s no reason to wait until then to start looking. There’s every reason to get going right now!
