The northern Michigan vacation home market has lagged the rest of the Michigan housing market, and this has created a great opportunity for buyers in many northern Michigan areas.
In addition, interest rates remain low and right now PEAK fall colors are on the trees. Fall is a great time to snatch up deals from sellers who do not want to keep their homes for another winter!
In particular, the Antrim County real estate market, which consists of Shanty Creek Ski and Golf Resort and several area lakes, is one which remains favorable to buyers in almost all categories. For example, in the past year 88 properties in Antrim County have sold between the price of $100,000 and $200,000. The average time on the market for those 88 properties was 204 days.
Hansel and Gretel house
One example of a great house for sale is a charming “Hansel and Gretel” ski chalet just outside Schuss Village of Shanty Creek Resort. It is built by Hamill, and has unique architectural features, rounded roof lines, stunning wood beams, stained glass windows, colored glass lights, and historical Bavarian hardware throughout this house, which has quality and character.
This house is in a prime location between the towns of Bellaire and Mancelona, with plenty of restaurants, shops, and grocery stores nearby. It is priced at $165,000 with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1550 square feet. It is walking distance to a beautiful boardwalk on the Cedar River, and a mile from Schuss Mountain, which is part of Shanty Creek Resort and numerous golf courses and ski hills. Outstanding snowmobile trails are down the road, and the hunting in the area is excellent. There are also many beautiful lakes and rivers closeby, including the “upper chain” of Lake Bellaire, Clam Lake and Torch Lake.
An open floor plan includes a large yet cozy family room with fireplace. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the main floor, with two bedrooms and second bathroom upstairs. There is also an oversized garage with room for two cars, wood, and workshop. Excellent well water has been pre-tested.
