Fall on Grand Lake Is Grand Too–Might Also Be A Good Time To Buy A Grand Lake Waterfront Home For Sale

Many people think when Labor Day is over that lake season is over too.  THAT IS NOT THE CASE.

Fall offers great boating time, enjoy the changing colors of the season with the tree foliage, long walks along the shores of the lake at perhaps the new Har-Ber Village walking trails with lake views, fishing, and it is also a great time to buy a Grand Lake Waterfront Home For Sale.   Many times a bargain can be struck this time of year as sellers are anxious to move their property before winter.  Take advantage of the season if you would like your own Grand Lake Area Real Estate Property For Sale.

I was out showing clients homes this week and we rounded a curve and saw a cematary in the Bernice area with several of the prettiest trees I had ever saw.  The guy I was showing ask me to stop and let him take a picture and we did and I also took a pic (above).  Now the colors in the sunlight did not come thru my cell phone camera as vivid as they looked but you can get the idea. More trees some with yellow tones were in the background not picked up in pic.  One pretty site and there are several places around the lake you can see by boat or car and enjoy nature at it’s best now.  Winter will bring on new nature views and you will enjoy the birds on the lake, of course spring blossoms will bring new color and a new season to Grand Lake.  You too could be enjoying all this at Grand Lake.

Grand Lake Waterfront Homes

This is one spring in which I would not hold back on looking for a Grand Lake waterfront home if I were in the market at all to buy this year. Our supply of waterfront homes on Grand Lake is still good but not as plentiful as they have been the past 3-4 years. The national real estate market is showing some very good signs of price appreciation in some areas of the country. That has not hit on Grand Lake yet but I will not be surprised to see a higher priced market as the spring and summer markets progress. Tomorrow is March 1, 2013 and already we are seeing some deals on Grand Lake waterfront homes being made. With a shorter supply of waterfront homes and looming price increase possibility this is just a time to get out in front while the weather is still dreary and get that dream weekend lake home bought.

If you have been thinking of a retirement home on Grand Lake I would also not tarry for the same reasons. Our economy is not perfect by a long shot but we are in so much better shape than a few years ago and seemingly headed in a better direction in spite of our political heads of both parties in Washington. Get on with your life and come enjoy a Grand Lake retirement home.

You can be at the launch area in Grove each morning of the tournament to see the Pros off then go to the Grand Lake Boat Show at the Civic Center in downtown Grove for the annual boat show. You can then go to Tulsa, OK in the BOK Center for the official weigh in.

Grand Lake is where the action is, the fish are caught, and the Grand Lake Boat Show. The weather is cold and a winter mix is forecast with snow presently falling. By Friday the weather is forecast to be in the mid 40’s with sunshine, Saturday gets warmer and nice, and Sunday even better.

Grand Lake is great year round, even in the winter. In winter you can enjoy peace, quiet, wildlife, the calm waters of the lake, while reading a good book or watching a movie, and then go out to dinner at one of the excellent places around the lake or go shopping in the quaint shoppes on Grand Lake.

Housing Market on the Move–Good Article From CNN Money

2012 home sales: Best in 5 years

By Chris Isidore @CNNMoney January 22, 2013: 10:39 AM ET

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

Steady December home sales capped the best year for the U.S. real estate market in five years, according to an industry trade group report Tuesday.

The National Association of Realtors said that December sales of previously-owned homes came in just slightly below November’s sales pace, but up 12.8% from a year ago. That brought full-year sales to 4.65 million, up 9% from 2011 and the best year for home sales since 2007, when there were 5 million homes sold just before the start of the recession.

Sales are being helped by a combination of strong market fundamentals — near record low mortgage rates, lower unemployment and a rebound in home prices, all of which are bringing in buyers into the market who had been waiting for it to hit bottom. The mortgage rates and years of depressed home priceshave also combined to create the most affordable housing market on record, according to the Realtors group.

And the Realtors are predicting strong sales should continue into 2013 and beyond. It has a forecast for 5.1 million existing home sales this year, and 5.4 million next year.

Related: Big luxury home sales, big tax savings

The improved demand for homes in December led to the inventory of homes for sale to fall to 1.82 million homes on the market, the lowest supply since January 2001. One factor in tightening supplies is a drop in foreclosures and other distressed home sales, which made up only 24% of home sales in December compared to 32% a year ago. The tighter supply, and the drop in distressed sales, have helped to lift home prices so that the median sales price for the year rose to $176,600, up 6.3% from 2011. That’s the biggest gain in prices in since the bubble year of 2005.

The rebound in the market for previously-owned homes is also showing up in the market for new homes, where sales rebounded to their highest levels since 2009, while housing starts reached the highest level since 2008. To top of page

Real Estate On Grand Lake–Is 2013 The Year For Your Grand Lake Waterfront Home?

I am sure that you, like me, having been reading national news stories of how the real estate housing market has not only stabilized but has seen some very sizable gains in many markets across the United States. Some markets have seen a 7-10% rise in prices from the lows, interest rates are at all time lows, and the homes for sale inventory continues to shrink. All these are signs that a full blown buyer’s market is ending and seller’s are getting more control over the price received for their home.

If you have been wanting a Grand Lake home the past several years but like many of us have been scared to buy with so much uncertainty, maybe now is the time to begin your search for your dream retirement home on Grand Lake or that dream second home on Grand Lake. The stock market as of this writing is getting within 500-600 points of the highs before our financial problems hit. We all know interest rates will not stay at these lows forever, maybe a few more months or perhaps 1-2 years but not for a long time. Prices on Grand Lake homes have not started rising in general yet but we are seeing pockets of upswing in prices and fully expect the Spring Market for Grand Lake Homes in 2013 to be much stronger will pent up demand by buyers coming to life in the form of sales. Now might be just the time to get an great financial investment in a Grand Lake home but to also make an investment in your family’s life.
