Kids, look out the Window!

To our surprise the other day, was a couple deer looking into our windows. They were on the lake right behind the house. My daughter Shon quickly grabbed the camera as the deer proceeded down the shoreline.

Another crazy story on the lake.

Living on the lake the views change daily.

This morning after the storm we got up and were surpised. The ice all melted on top from the warm weather, and today the lake was mostly covered with snow, exept for a couple areas right behind our home. This could create some great ice skating really soon.

Winter tip for lake front buyers.

When looking for the lakefront cottage or home in the winter and looking for a good beach, take an Ice pick and check for yourself. When buying the lakefront cottage or home, truly ensure you check out the beach!

Don't be surprised in the spring to find out it is all muck!@!?!?@?#
You will not be happy!

Cottage and Lakefront is perfect this time of year.

Did you know this is a great time for buying waterfront property or the cottage?

Sellers are wondering, will my home ever sell? Will it be 5 months before the nice weather comes around. Many wonderful homes and cottages on the market.

Things to look for when purchasing a cottage.
1. Before the ice is too thick? Check the firmness of the beach. Take a broom stick or other stick. Take a firm stick and press on the sandy beach. Watch out for mucky beaches.
2. Overall layout of the property. Everything can be changed.
3. Buying the biggest and best home is not always the best thing to do. Its always tough to get your equity back out.

The buyers are excited for getting a great value on a beautiful home. Are you looking for a foreclosure? Give us a call.
Foreclosures on lakes are out there and we can help. Maybe you can be the next lakefront homeowner.

Summer on the lake.

Well with all the docks pulled in for the winter and boats stored away, I wanted to share a couple highlights of the summer. Boating on the lake with our kids was definitely a highlight this summer. Our two girls had lots of friends over this summer tubing behind the boat. One big thing I remember was seeing all the smiles and the words..."can we go again?"
Now we prepare for the cold weather and grab the blankets. Looking forward to the spring!
Picture above is Shon our daughter showing her moves on the tube.

Short Sale information.

Short sales is a word that really has changed the market. I am 42 years old, and our parents have never heard of this word. Well today, home buyers need to be prepared and ready to work with a qualifed agent who knows how to handle short sales. Shelley and I are seeing more and more of this in our line of work. Feel free to ask us questions, if you are wondering about this process.
