Door County Real Estate UpdateA serious talk about our 2024 spring Door County real estate market, and what we can expect going forward into the rest of the year.  Recent, national legal battles--and a proposed settlement of same--in the United States real estate industry under the National Association of Realtors, have resulted in a great deal of confusion for the general public.  In regard to the pending national settlement, there are many very misleading and even completely false statements that have been broadcast or published in regards to this settlement and how it will change the United States real estate industry.This isn't just a national matter--it's a very local matter.  This settlement will trickle down to every local level, and to the local practice of real estate.  Its imp...

Door County Real Estate Market Predictions for 2024So, we're riding into the middle of the first quarter of 2024, and we've had a chance to shake off all of the holiday vides and get back into the thick of things.  And although we've had an incredibly mild winter as of this writing AND even though Punksutawney Phil did not see his shadow and an early spring is predicted, we're right in the heart of February now with some snow predicted, so it's a great time to predict what I think the rest of the year will bring for Door County real estate.1.  The Federal Reserve will not lower interest rates until late summer or autumn in 2024 (if at all).  In the interim, I feel as though the best we can hope for is that rates do not go UP any more.  This is going to be because, despite some very posi...

Buying a Home in Door County: When some TLC can PAY OFFI'm not ashamed to admit I am absolutely shameless when it comes to watching reality TV about houses.  My favorites are things like "Bargain Mansions",and anything that ends with "Bargain Hunt".   And let's not forget the classic (before 2020, when prices started to explode) "Fixer-Upper" episodes.And what is the common these of these shows?  A lot of time, you'll have someone voicing over "Stacey and Tom want to realize their dream of owning a vacation home close to the lake---any lake--but it has to be a 3-5 hour drive from their home, and their 'all-in' budget MUST be under $400,000.00."These shows were GREAT to watch until about 2020 (when all you could do is sit home and watch them, anyways, and then suddenly---you couldn't fin...

Door County Real Estate Market Update August 2023As we near the end of August, 2023, the Door County real estate market continues the pattern that it has shown since 2021.Homes and condominiums under $500,000 are receiving the most interest, but they are a very scarce commodity, and many of them are going under contract with multiple Offers.Heartland acreage (under Door County Zoning) is still averaging roughly $25,000 per acre, but smaller lots are seeing higher prices per acre because they generally have different zoning classifications.  There is very little vacant acreage for sale at all in northern Door County as of this writing (and vacant land is also scarce in Sturgeon Bay and south of Sturgeon Bay).  Waterfront properties under $3,000,000 remain highly desirable.  There are ver...

Flashback Friday:  Taking a little trip back in time to a SOLD listing from 2019/2020.  We LOVED this property and hope its new owners love it as much as the previous owners (who built it and lived on the property for decades) have.  Let us help you find a unique Door County home that is PERFECT for you in 2023 (this was a 2019 listing) For a list of CURRENT listings, please visit our site at moredoorcounty.com  Note:  This is a re-blog of a previously sold property, all photo rights reserved. SOLD!  SOLD!  SOLD! Welcome to "the Shire"...        I've been lucky enough to see and/or represent some really special homes in my career.  Remember the "Mushroom House", the domed house near Cave Point?     What about the beautiful Norwegian estate property known as Binkhaven Nord, in Ephraim?  ...

 Wildfire Haze in Door County, June 2023 Our hearts go out to everyone in Canada and across the United States that are in the midst of battling wildfires.  The smoke has had such an impact on so much of the US over the past few weeks.  The photo above is what Sister Bay USUALLY looks like on a sunny June day.  Not this week!  Here are some live photos of yesterday in Sister Bay:Looking across one end of the Sister Bay Village Harbor to the other side (Marina View)And last night's sunset was kind of eerie....for the past week, it's been hard to see where the Bay stops and the horizon begins.This is the time of the year when we look forward to some of the most glorious sunsets of the entire year, so we are glad it is much clearer (and hot and sunny) today.We are so looking forward to the ...
