Door County Housing for Sale:  It's a Seller's MarketHow can a Buyer get the Upper Hand in a Hot Market Door County has an EXTREMELY hot Seller's market in 2021.  I recently had a current Buyer send me 12 listings from Nasawaupee through Sister Bay (a distance of roughly 55 miles apart) and they were shocked to learn only two were available.  Yes, like everywhere else in the US, Door County is in a Seller's Market as of this writing--which is great for our Sellers, but what about our Buyer Clients?  This has made it extremely difficult, as people scramble to be first in line for new listings and wonder what is "wrong" with listings that have been on market for more than a few weeks.Our Door County Multiple Listing Service is not part of the state-wide Multiple Listing Service.  This is ...

Northern Door County Waterfront Residential and Condo Sales in 2020 When you think of Door County, you might think of cherry trees in bloom, or you might think of our gorgeous autumn colors--but you definitely think of the water, from waterfront sunsets over Green Bay, to the majesty of Lake Michigan, to the placid inland lakes like Kangaroo Lake and Europe Lake.Do you think northern Door County had a lot of waterfront sales in 2020?  The number might surprise you.  Northern Door County (defined for our purposes today as north of the City of Sturgeon Bay) only had 64 recorded Door County Multiple Listing Service (Door County MLS) "sold" single family home waterfront sales in 2020.  The market was TIGHT.  Demand far exceeded supply.And the number of waterfront condominiums sold in 2020 m...

Door County's Real Estate Roller Coaster:  Welcome 2021 Home Buyers!I saw something funny on social media today.  "I'd like to cancel my subscription to 2021.  I've experienced the free 7 day trial and I'm not interested!".I have a feeling that's how a lot of Door County real estate buyers feel right now.  Inventory is extremely low, prices keep rising.....and this is typical for the entire United States right now.  Every week, inventory comes on our market and is snatched away immediately, almost always with multiple Offers, and especially if it's under $500,000.00.  Listings over $500,000 take longer on market, and our million-dollar listings can still take several months to sell...but sell they do.  Door County, in the Midwest and surrounded by water, with thousands of acres in our L...
