Winter – A Great Time of Year to See Property

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Winter is a great time of year to head up north and look at property in northern Wisconsin and Michigan.  With the leaves off the trees and snow on the ground it’s easy to see the topography and lay of the land.  For waterfront and view property, it’s an excellent way to see potential views that otherwise might be hidden when the leaves are on.  For people that plan on using their vacation property in the winter it’s always nice to see that the roads are plowed and that access is attainable with the vehicles they own.  Come on up, we’ve got the snowshoes and are ready to help you find great land to own this winter so you’ll be ready to get up north and start enjoying your new property when the snow melts.

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

The real estate brokers and agents at Loon Lake Realty invest a great deal of time driving to and walking potential new property listings to offer. Here’s one that didn’t make the cut.

  • Way back at the end of a little gravel road, very secluded. – Check.
  • A beautiful mix of pines and hardwoods. – Check.
  • Power run all the way to the lake. – Check.
  • A no wake lake, serene and quiet. – Check.
  • Deer peacefully foraging along the lake shore. – Check.
  • Clear, clean looking water. – Check.
  • Sand bottom. – Another wasted tank of gas.

Blue Collar Cabins

“With sweat equity investment and a little scratch you can build your dream cabin without breaking the bank”

Many people dream of owning a log home in the country, in the woods or on the water. What often prevents the dream from becoming a reality are the perceived costs of the project. A recent article in Heartland USA magazine dispels some of those fears and myths.

Naturally it all starts with finding the right land to build on. After that, this cabin building article may help get that new vacation property ‘off the ground’.

Presidential Election 2008 & Fishing in Wisconsin

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

It’s often been said that one shouldn’t mix politics and real estate.  I couldn’t agree more.  However, there’s an issue that both parties can agree on: ‘Fishing in Wisconsin is fun.’  Here’s a look back on some of the former Presidents of the United States that have sought a break from the rigors of the office and found respite on the waters of northern Wisconsin: Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Dwight Eisenhower.
