2012 is going to go out with a BANG as far as Lake Geneva Lakefront Real Estate goes.
In the last 7 weeks, we’ve seen tons of lakefront real estate activity, both from buyers and sellers. There have been tons of calls for showings and to list their homes for sale. Buyers are looking for the perfect Wisconsin vacation home and they know that they are in competition for the best values. On Lake Geneva, there are currently 5 lakefront homes under contract.
They span across a whole variety of price points from the entry level $1M lakefront listing to a historic home on the West End at $3.5M. Another lakefront in Fontana on S. Lakeshore Drive was just listed this month and has proven to have tremendous value for the list price. In the news, we’ve been hearing forecasts and predictions for the 2013 real estate market. Indicators remain strong that mortgage rates will continue to stay low. This will give buyers more buying power to find the perfect lakefront home for their family.
I also have read in a few different real estate publications that prices are going to start rising. The Wall Street Journal just had an article in there predicting home prices would jump 9.7% in 2013. What’s driving these predictions? Market activity is a large part of it. As real estate markets go, the 4th quarter isn’t usually the most active. While we’ve had a better year in the Lake Geneva lakefront market than 2011, we never would have predicted the lakefront market to be this busy closing in on the new year. With offers on the table being negotiated, this will jump start 2013 in a very strong way.
