What if your Lake Cabin or Vacation Home is not Quite Ready for Showings Yet?

Over the next few weeks, we will begin to see a number of lake property buyers begin to go out and physically view real estate on water.  Until now, many of them have been satisfied staying in their warm houses and clicking through lake homes, cabins and lots on their computers -- but they are getting restless.

This week we have several waterfront buyers coming into town from other states in search of the perfect lake place.  Their goal is to have the closing done and be in possession in time to begin enjoying the lake once the ice goes out.  And a two-month closing from today is Mid-April -- on spring's doorstep!

 If your lake cabin has decent road access and you can get in and turn on some heat, you may beat the other sellers with the low inventory on lakes this time of year.  Whether you are selling for the first time, or have had your place off the market for the winter, it is a good time to find motivated lakeshore buyers.  And don't forget to do a quick cleaning to freshen up the place after being closed up for several months.
