In 2006, the economy and real estate market began to shift into a downturn and many realtors, lenders, appraisers, sellers and buyers were not prepared to transition to the new market realities. Most of these parties had not dealt with foreclosures, short sales, tight mortgage money, high inventories, competition and long marketing times. At the same time, technology and social media were becoming primary forces in the real estate market. The Rauland Agency is proud to have successfully helped its customers and partners navigate the new market and marketing realities that the past seven years have created.
The real estate market in Walworth County is once again beginning to grow and this improvement is leading to new market and marketing dynamics. Sellers, buyers, lenders, appraisers and real estate professionals all need to adjust ahead of these changes. Once again, The Rauland Agency is offering its clients a whole new perspective on real estate in Walworth County and the lakes area.
Walking the Shore Path on Geneva Lake is a wonderful experience matched only by being out on the lake making memories on a perfect summer day. Both are excellent ways to fully appreciate the lake. But, for a whole new appreciation of this incredible area, you need to gain a new perspective. If you haven’t seen the area by plane, the views are breathtaking. A romantic hot air balloon ride over the lakes area can be very inspiring. Many people have also seen the lake aloft the area thermals while parasailing but for the ultimate thrill and perspective try jumping out of a plane with the Sky Knights to take in the picturesque vistas you can only get from high above the County where the lakes start out as small blue dots set against a carpet of green.
If you are going to adjust to the changing real estate market you cannot continue to do the same things you did over the past seven years and expect results. You need a new perspective. But, don’t worry about jumping into the new market on your own. If you jump with an experienced and knowledgeable partner you can experience the results without the fear.
