I know what you're thinking. The weather is getting cold, and if we purchased our vacation home now, we probably would not use it much until next year.
Here Are 5 Reasons To Buy Now
1 Sellers are generally most flexible now, much less so in the Spring.
2 Rates are at historic lows, you could save thousands financing now.
3 Less competition. Avoid being too late to act, or even worse, getting involved in a bidding war. It happens every year.
4 Use the cold winter months to complete repairs or improvements when labor is less expensive and readily available.
5 But isn't the inventory best in the Spring? Not often. In fact, the inventory now is much better than it was in the Spring of 2014. How many vacation homes to you plan on buying anyway? :) You only need to find one... the right one for you, your family, and within your budget.
The perfect place for you could be available right now, and at a much better price than it will be next year. Do NOT rely on your own online search to determine if you will like any of the current homes for sale. Photos are deceiving. Many homes are incorrectly mapped, especially if they are on private roads common in the beach neighborhoods.
Call, email, or text me to setup a tour of homes that specifically match your vision, without bias or conflict of interests.

"Paul represented us to purchase a home in Union Pier. We found him through his excellent web site. In my opinion, there is no better web site for buyers, looking in the Harbor Country area. His information is comprehensive, accurate and focused on buyers. Paul did an excellent job of listening to us and what we wanted before he met with us for our first and only tour of homes this was important to us because we didn’t want to spend a lot of time looking at homes. We saw 9 homes on a Saturday afternoon. 7 of the 9 homes were right in our price range and met all of the criteria that we had communicated to Paul. The other 2 homes were nice to see as a comparison. In the end, we loved 3 of the homes that Paul showed us and made an offer on our favorite. Within 10 days of meeting Paul for the first time, we signed a contract for our new home in Union Pier. Throughout the next 3 weeks, before closing, Paul was outstanding. He served as our representative at all stages of the pre-closing process. And, he called us periodically to remind us of important issues that we may have overlooked like bringing a certified check to closing. Paul’s knowledge of the Harbor Country area and his complete commitment to his clients make him an oustanding buyer’s representative. We highly recommend him. We’ve been in our Union Pier house now for almost 7 months and we have loved every weekend there, we’re Chicago residents. I’ve bought and sold several homes in the past 10 years and, this is the first time that I’ve liked a broker enough to take the time to write a testimonial."
