Photographic Analogy of the Current Real Estate Market

By
Real Estate Agent with REMAX Results Minnesota License#90858

The current real estate market is depicted by a late March photograph of the shoreline along Forest Lake in Washington County, Minnesota.

 Forest Lake, MN Spring 2009 by Teri Eckholm Realtor

overcast sky, unstable ice
frigid water, rocky shore
waiting; secure in the knowledge that this season too shall pass
value always returns

What a great shot of Forest Lake. My dad used to take me fishing on that lake, and afterward we would comb the shore for clams. In fact, I learned how to swim in that lake. He threw me out of our boat and said "Swim or drown."

Elizabeth--I am certainly glad you learned to swim...there was more than one dad in MN that taught swimming that way I hear. Bet it was in June or July not March when you were thrown in. The frozen water can kill you in minutes.

I see the attitudes of buyer getting better and with that the market will return to a more even split of buyers and sellers which will bring back appreciation.

Nice post! Here in Estes Park we are curious to see what our summer season will bring. I think you have perhaps done the best market analysis possible!
