Geneva Lakefront Price Per Foot

It's not the best way to determine value, but it helps.

Value discovery in Lake Geneva is remarkably nuanced. This is why your choice in representation matters so much. The market is positioned to highly value the Price Per Foot statistic, which we display for you here. But there’s much more to the market than just this simplistic understanding of value. Work with us to better understand how each section of shoreline should come with its own expectation of value.

Thanksgiving

What a curious thing it is, this year. I sit here at this desk worrying about which customer will buy and which customer will sell, worrying about the June water lateral that’s being dug in November.

Lake Geneva Market Update

I haven’t written one of these for a while, largely because doing so would have felt gratuitous. How many times do you need me to tell you the market is hot? How many times should I tell you about the bidding wars and other hot-market-nonsense happening here on a weekly basis? It all felt like…

Lake Geneva Fall Colors

They’re here. It’s now. They snuck up on me, even though I knew they were imminent. I told you a few weeks ago that they’d be here, but I didn’t think it would be quite so soon. I only noticed it yesterday when I was letting someone into my Valley Park listing (pending sale, BTW).…
