Summer Heats up Sales on Delavan Lake, WI

     Just as the temperatures started to rise, the lakefront home sales on Delavan Lake, WI took off and have now created a shortage of homes to choose from.
     For the first six months of the year, there were only three sales.  Those ranged from a $307,000 foreclosure to a remodeled three-bedroom for $620,000 on the mouth of Browns Channel.
     Once the mercury started to rise, sales expanded with 13 sales from July 1 through September 22.  Four more are under contract, including one infested with mold that should be torn down and rebuilt.  Prices of these sales ranged from $240,000 for a little one bedroom to $1.9 million for the perfect lakefront layout on 125 feet of level South Shore frontage.
     The explosion in sales has left very few options for those that still want a lake home on 2,000 acre Delavan Lake.  Today, there are only 12 homes on the main body left unsold.  The best options include 2804 Manor Lane and 2724 Willow Point Drive.
     Located just off of South Shore Drive, 2804 Manor Lane is a four-bedroom two-story waiting for the next owner to remodel and redecorate to take advantage of the 100 feet of level frontage that the property enjoys.

     The North Shore option is 2724 Willow Point Drive.  Listed for $825,000 this classic four bedroom lakefront also has 100 feet of private frontage and has three waterfront decks.
