This week, a lakefront house at Wolf Lake, one of our prettiest non-motorboat lakes, closed at $790,000 ($1,000 over its asking price of $789,000). The 3BR, 2BA house with a fireplace sits on a .34 acre lot and has 1,768 sq. ft. The house had a deal on it within weeks of coming on the market in June. Good lakefront houses have been one of the bright spots in the market over the past few months. Lakefront houses that have hit on all cylinders — an appealing house in a mountain rustic style on a nice lake — have sold well and for fairly healthy prices. A larger house on 5 acres on Black Lake sold in May for $925,000 and a small, 1,200 sq. ft. well done cottage with a western sunset view on Tennanah sold very quickly for $500,000. Both of these houses sold very close to their asking prices. A nice rustic contemporary house at Timber Lake that was listed at $749,000 (but not yet closed, so the sales price isn’t public) went into contract almost immediately after being listed.
