WOW! This stunning home on Duck Lake has it all! With four bedrooms, there is plenty of room for everyone. The open concept living space with new ash flooring allows for a great flow for conversation and entertaining. The wood burning fireplace, central to the room, will warm up even the coolest night. Enjoy the sunsets on the large open sun deck, with access from both the great room and the 2nd bedroom. A primary bedroom, with a private bath, completes the main floor. The lower level is completely finished. BONUS! - an entirely finished three season room with level walk out to the water. The oversized yard is great for family games and s'mores nights at the firepit by the shore. A hot tub is nestled off the back deck providing privacy while soaking yet great views of both the water and the sunsets. An attached two car insulated garage provides plenty of space for your boat and recreational vehicles.

If your listing expired and your house didn’t sell, you’re likely feeling a little frustrated. Not to mention, you're also probably wondering what went wrong. Here are three questions to think about as you figure out what to do next.
Did You Limit Access to Your House?
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when selling your house is restricting the days and times when potential buyers can tour it. Being flexible with your schedule is important when you're selling your house, even though it might feel a bit stressful to drop everything and leave when buyers want to see it. After all, minimal access means minimal exposure to buyers. ShowingTime advises:
“. . . do your best to be as flexible as possible when granting access to your house for showings.”
Sometimes, the most determined buyers might come from far away. Since they're traveling to see your house, they may not be able to change their plans easily if yo ...

If your house didn't sell before your listing expired, you're probably feeling more than a little frustrated. I completely understand. That's a hard spot to be in. If you don't know what to do next, here's a rundown of your options.
When your house hasn't sold you can take it off the market completely sell it yourself or work with an agent to relist it.
If this is a bit overwhelming here is what I'll tell you. There's probably a reason you want it to move. So deciding you're not going to do it at all isn't putting your needs first. And while you could try to sell it yourself, it's an involved process. If you're already stressed because it didn't sell the first time taking on the pressure of selling it on your own maybe more than you want to take tackle. Option three is to realist it now. I know you didn't have a great experience and I would like to change that for you. I'm here to listen and offer advice. Let's connect so you have a partner in the process who can help ...

New listing continues to be on our face downward 361 new listings at the end of August compared to 2,072 year to date, both of them are down. While we look at pending sale, again these our sales that are currently under contract. We were actually up 33% for August year over year and up 13% year to date. When we look at closed sales, what we see is we are up 2.4%. So that is up for the first time we've seen in a while, down year to date 15.75%. But here is the interesting thing, average listing price is still up by 8% and average selling price is still up by over 4%. So even though we have compression on the side of new listings and current inventory, we still continue to see that price go up. Average days on market is down again we are still at about 70 days on average for a home to sale in northern Wisconsin. And our inventory continues to hover around five months supply of inventory out there.
We are in a very unique time right now. Despite the fact that we are still down ...

I just ran on Yahoo Finance article that says at the end of 2023, Q4, we're gonna see interest rates below 6% potentially and into 2024 maybe even lower and by the end of 2024 maybe we're gonna see interest rates in the 4% again. People get excited when they hear lower interest rates because they think they're going to be able to buy more house, but I want to explain something to you if you're a buyer. As those interest rates are a little bit higher right now with buyer demand being lower. There's huge opportunity for you as a buyer to negotiate, to win in your contingencies, to get your inspection rights back and to maybe have the seller buy down some of your interest rates, papay some seller concessions, and you might be able to win in negotiation and pay less for a house. We have millions of buyers that didn't buy this year because of interest rates. So as those interest rates come down, what do we think it's going to happen to our buyer demand, it is going to rise. And what happe ...
