Market Report We are experiencing an incredible increase of buyers at the LAKE. Even after a record year in 2016…we have an astounding 400% increase in active buyers compared to first quarter last year. What does this mean? First, it could be an anomaly driven by pent-up demand leading up to our national elections that could be short term. It could also be the beginning of a longer term trend based on confidence in the economy. Either way, we should see some upward movement in LAKE property values in the short run. For anyone who knows me, I can opine on this market and economics in general for much longer than Margo (my ever patient wife) can stand… But if you have any questions on how this current climate could affect buying or selling, feel free to connect..
Cabana’s on the Lake NOW OPEN! Located at Reasors Landing Owner, Triple Black Belt George Cabana, is offering Wings, Seafood, and his famous Lumpia (Filipino egg roll). Open Monday 4-7, Tues- Sunday 11-9.
Get ahead of the crowd ...de-winterize your boats and fuel up with fresh non-ethanol.
Also, remember to grease trailer hubs as well...We see a boat in a field almost every Spring when someone's trailer fails on the way to the lake. Ouch!
