Delavan Lake Front Vacant Building Site

by Bob Webster

Here is a rare opportunity to find a Lake Front Vacant Building Site in the Geneva Lakes Area. The wooded parcel has over 100' of gently sloping frontage and is over an acre in size, located on the north shore of Delavan Lake with great views to the south and east with impressive and substantial homes located nearby. The price was recently reduced to $595,000 making it one of the more affordable lake front vacant building sites to be found in the area, especially in comparison to Lake Geneva Lake Front Real Estate

Why spend time looking for property on web portals like Zillow or Trulia when you may be missing out on seeing up to twenty percent of the current active listing inventory at any given time, or worse yet get your hopes up on something you may click on that has long since sold and closed and is no longer available, which is a very common occurrence with both of those sites.

A Recent Lake Geneva Real Estate Condominium Closing

A Recent Lake Geneva Real Estate Condominium Closing

Lake Geneva Condominium

I recently closed on this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath condominium unit located in the Prairie Wind Condominium development in Lake Geneva with the assistance of Carol Becker Samsa from the First Weber Group in Greenfield Wisconsin. This was my first transaction with Carol and she was a real pleasure to work with. The financing on this transaction was provided through Sheri Day with Johnson Bank in Burlington. Sheri did a great job and I would highly recommend her. Don Melton of HouseMasters did the home inspection and was very helpful when an issue of a high Radon level was discovered during the inspection. With the help of Karla Newman from Radon Remedy we were able to remediate the unit and bring the level below acceptable EPA recommendation of 4. I have used Karla and her professional team at Radon Remedy many times and would highly them as well.

This unit was a great example of some of the exceptional values that are currently available in the Lake Geneva Real Estate market. Although this transaction had some bumps in the road, with the help of all the folks involved we were able to get the property to a successful closing with a very happy Buyer and Seller.

Lake Geneva Real Estate Market Update

Lake Genedva Real Estate Update for March 2010

by Bob Webster

The good news for today is the sun is shining in Lake Geneva and the Cubs are playing baseball on the radio this afternoon.  Even if you’re not a Cubs fan, that’s good news because it means that the worst of the winter is behind us and Spring can’t be too far away.  But it’s probably a little early for putting away the winter coats and boots just yet.  I’m guessing Mother Nature has a least one more sizeable snowfall for us before winter is officially done. 

As I’ve indicated the last few weeks, the signs of an increase in calls and inquires continues and I think we will see that resulting in more showings in the near future, but it hasn’t really happened as of yet.  Knowing that the average time between accepted offer and closing tends to run between 30 and 45 days, it is still too early to have any measureable signs of an increase in the actual closings YTD. 

I’m having lots of conversations with potential Buyers of various types of property and various price ranges in the Lake Geneva Real Estate market and there continues to be a concern by many about whether this is the right time to move forward with a purchase.  I even had a conversation with an appraiser yesterday who called me looking for some help with a refinance appraisal he was working on and he came right out and asked how we are able to come up with price recommendations these days with such mixed signals in the market and a lack of actual recent sales to go by.  It’s actually a good question. 

I had occasion to sit in on a speech this week given by an economist for Stewart Title whose credentials includes a PhD in finance with a minor in statistics and a master’s degree in land economics and real estate from Texas A&M University.  He had some very interesting things to say about the real estate market, not all of it positive and many comments about what’s going on in Washington these days with spending.  His outlook for the future of commercial real estate was extremely negative but he had a rather mixed message for residential real estate.  I don’t tend to put too much stock in prognosticators these days but his talk was filled with a lot of very specific charts and statistics.  His main point of focus was on the number of home sales as a leading indicator of the future and not on average sale prices, which is what much of the media tends to focus on.  His point being that with a high number short sales and bank owned property being sold, it is only natural that the averages will go down as those sale numbers are reported.  Getting that inventory sold and off the market is actually a good thing and it doesn’t necessarily mean that overall values are declining.  If you have any interest in viewing his Power Point presentation, drop me an Email message and I’ll be happy to pass it along.
