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 and Rocky made buying our vacation home a great experience. They supported us so well before, during and after the transaction. We are pleased to think of them not only as our Realtors but also as the first friends we made in Harbor Country. Most memorable moment; Standing in front of what was to become our lake house, watching Paul struggle to maintain his professional distance from our decision about whether to jump on the magnificent opportunity he had brought us to. Typical of how Paul is both a real person and a real professional"
