Are Minnesota lakeshore owners hoping the real estate market has turned a corner? Maybe.
I spotted an unusual trend this past July. Lakeshore homes, that traditionally list as soon as the the frozen lakeshore shows signs of spring, were being listed mid-summer and now into August. And they are not just the usual handful of sellers that just couldn't get ready in time for the spring market. There were several lake properties listed in Anoka County after July 1st this year. These are not "cancel and relist as new" homes…You know the ones that just give you the feeling of deja'vu because they get a new MLS number every 6-8 months. Over a dozen new lakeshore listings hit the market as bona fide new listings in the past six weeks.
Here are a few of Anoka County “priced-to-sell” Lakeshore Listings that just hit the market:
- Otter Lake 4BR/3BA/2car split on ¾+ acre under $350K
- 1998 built 2-Story 4BR/4BA/5Car on Coon Lake. Additional garage with studio/office above on paved road priced under $660K (Almost $70K below tax value!)
- 2BR/3BA/2car 2000 blt townhome in the Lakes of Raddison. Pd $230K in 2005, asking $189,900
- 5BR 2-story on Linwood Lake with pole barn! Updated Gourmet Ktn and awesome lakeviews! Listed at $435K
