September is the most beautiful time in Harbor Country. Hope you had a chance to make it to the Harvest Festival last weekend, it was a wonderful time. This fall has started with a flurry of activity in the higher end of our market. September sales volume was over 11 million, and 71% higher than the same time last year. Prices from Bridgman to New Buffalo have stabilized, and are up slightly over last year. REO/Bank Owned sales reached a peak of 47% of sales in Mar, and have since dropped to 29% in September. Since September 1, 35 homes have closed with 23% of those closing over $500,000. On October 7th, another 2 million dollar Lakefront property went under contract. Residential listings in the area are down 12% since last September. If you have been considering a Harbor Country getaway, it may be time to take a closer look. Please contact Paul or myself, if you would like any additional information, or are interested in taking a look around.

"Paul is the ultimate buyer’s resource in Harbor Country. As a unique enclave, most listings are not found on the major real estate apps, but Paul has them all in his constantly updated database. That access was the only reason we were able to find our house. His site is also really great for its use of various filters that allow sorting, for how real people search for unique features. On a personal level, he is always ready to help take buyers out to look and knows all the sellers, attorneys, contractors, bankers and others that a new home buyer needs to have a smooth welcome to the area. He and his staff have been a real pleasure to work with. We are thrilled with our new home and have Paul to thank."
