New Waterfront Listing Inventory

Thomas Lake

Check out our new waterfront listing inventory that just hit the market! We have options on Lake Superior, Bass Lake, Peshekee River, Pike Lake, Lake Michigamme, Granite Lake, Nelligan Lake, Dam Lake, the Michigamme River, Thomas Lake, and Horseshoe Lake.

This Spring has been one of the best we’ve had for new waterfront listings. Our waterfront inventory spans great options on the Great Lakes, inland lakes, private lakes, and rivers throughout the Upper Peninsula. We have so many options, we invite you to explore our invetory but also welcome emails or calls for assistance in finding a property to suit your needs. Sometimes a wealth of options can be overwhelming and makes it difficult to locate the right property for a particular buyer. That is exactly what we are here for and we welcome the opportunity to help narrow the options for you.

Clear Lake

We’ve also brought to market 560 acres containing Clear Lake. This is a special kind of property that only comes available every so often. Contact us for more details.

U.P. Market Update – Waterfront Properties

Luce County

The market for waterfront properties in the Upper Peninsula is on the move in a positive direction. This market might have seen the greatest increases in values of any market in the U.P. during the mid 2000s. Terms that applied to markets throughout the country such as “Real Estate bubble”, certainly applied to the Upper Peninsula’s waterfront market. Many buyers were purchasing properties on speculation that this market would continue to see large gains in value.

Much of the purchasing power for these waterfront properties came from home equity loans. As the national housing market ran high, many homeowners refinanced and took their equity out to make waterfront purchases. When the Real Estate “bubble” burst in 2008, the market for U.P. waterfront properties soon followed. As the finances of many investors and homeowners alike took a hit, the buyers for our waterfront parcels almost disappeared. Combined with the lack of buyers, a flood of sellers looking to get money out of the market pushed inventories high and values down.

It took a few years after 2008 for this market to really hit the bottom. It took even more time for much of the inventory to reduce and buyers to come back to this market so that values could stabilize. Well, we are now happy to say that this has definitely happened. In the past four years, we have seen steady increases in sales volumes. In the past two years, we have started to see an increase in market values. Real Estate markets in the U.P. vary greatly from location to location, but generally, things are positive.

While the bottom of the market may have passed, the time to buy has not. Some of our lakes, rivers, and other non-residential property types have just started to see this positive movement. A buyer can take comfort in this stabilization while also getting into the market at a good value point. The best news here may be for sellers. Sellers that may be thinking the market isn’t good enough to move their property, very well may be wrong.

If you have a waterfront property in the U.P. and you’ve been thinking that conditions are not good enough to sell, please reconsider. We have seen strong increases in sales within this market for several years in a row now. This winter, we have seen an increase in buyers in this marketplace. While pricing new inventory, we are also seeing increases in values over previous years.

So as we transition from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market, there are good opportunities for both buyers and sellers. If you are either, please contact us to discuss your specific property type and location. Waterfront markets can literally vary from lake to lake, so let us know where you’d like to buy or sell and we can provide up to date accurate information on the current status of that market.

While we may not be back at the pre-crash levels of the 2006-2007 markets, we feel like this market has definitely turned the corner. As other similar markets have pressed to all time high levels, we feel like there is significant room to move in this market as well. The U.P. has so many great waterfront properties to offer and now is a great to buy, or sell one of these.
