Real Estate Across the Globe

February 2, 2021

AZ picture

Have you ever wondered what the Real Estate market is like in other parts of the world? Our team always has different geographical areas on the radar. If you are curious about a specific location, reach out and we’d be happy to provide up to date, accurate information.

Darcy was on a recent visit to Arizona and thought it would be fun to give some stats and predictions. The housing market is looking extremely strong for the Phoenix area in 2021. Realtor.com’s 2021 Housing Forecast predicts the Valley home sales to increase 11.4% from 2020, making it one of the hottest housing markets in the nation.

A few predictions set for the new year include Mortgage rates staying grounded, Inventory will stay sparse and lastly Investing in rental properties will be on the rise.

Phoenix is growing in short term rentals such as Airbnb, it is a landlord friendly state, it has a massive snow-bird market, with some retiring permanently and additionally low taxes in Arizona.  Maybe all of this has to do with the beautiful weather?!

If we can be of help to you in looking at Real Estate around the country, reach out. We’d be happy to connect you with a local expert.

Year Round Cabin on Mille Lacs Lake

December 3, 2020

42015-Vista-Rd_30

No matter the weather outside, purchasing a vacation property will bring you immediate joy!  42015 Vista Road located in Isle, MN is a charming year round cabin located on Mille Lacs Lake. This is the perfect location for families in the Minneapolis area. In less than 2 hours, this location makes weekend trips an easy getaway.  This property has 54 feet of lake frontage and is fully furnished, including the dock. The converted garage is a separated bunk room paradise for the kids.

Future trips to the family cabin are what memories are made of for children and adults alike. A shelter for yourself, somewhere quiet, and a place to offer warm hospitality to friends.  Owning a cabin is good for your body, mind, and soul. Spending time outdoors, encourages you to disconnect from mobile devices. Even at the times when you are eating smores and drinking wine, you’re engaging in face-to-face social interactions, which have a positive impact on your overall health and well-being.

This can also be an investment; you can create a second income for short term gains. List on Airbnb as an accommodation.

These are just a few considerations and possibilities of years of enjoyment you’ll get from owning this Mille Lacs private getaway. You can’t put a price tag on memories!

For more information on this property click here now.

Contact us today to schedule your private showing!!
