Northern Wisconsin Real Estate
Spring has Sprung! Well, we're getting there anyways. After a long Northern Wisconsin winter, this is a time of renewal, optimism, and anticipation that is a special thing to be a part of. There is a buzz in the air around the Minocqua area, as the local folks are gearing up for what is sure to be a great upcoming summer season. For our out-of-town friends, it's a time of looking forward to open water, days on the lakes, and another season of classic Northwoods memories that can only be made in this one of a kind place.
With spring in the air and summer on the horizon, we can begin to look back at this past winter in the real estate world- which lends some important insights into what we can expect in the months to come. I'm pleased to report that we have not only managed to stay busy this winter- we've been running our tails off! We experienced very little in the way of a "slow season" as we stayed busy with lots of people coming to the area throughout the winter to take advantage of pretty darn good snow conditions this year. Despite not having much in the way of new snow through much of January and February, our cold temperatures managed to keep the snow we had around and we always seemed to top it off with a couple fresh inches here and there to keep the snowmobile and ski trails in good shape.
Our local real estate market performed quite well through the winter, which is excellent news for both buyers and sellers. We have some good momentum in the marketplace heading into the warmer months, which should entice many more folks to put their properties on the market. It also means that buyers who put their search on hold for the winter should be seeing a nice variety of new listings as they start looking again. Any way you look at it, all factors seem to be pointing toward a very productive 2015 season. With interest rates expected to finally begin climbing this year, the early bird will likely get the worm. So if you've been casually looking for a while, this may be your year.
