Minocqua, Eagle River Avg Home Prices 2008-2013


We have not looked at average home prices for a while.  This time of year the values take on more relevance as they are becoming more statistically accurate.  I break down the values by county and then by on-water and off-water homes.    This is more telling as the on-water homes are purchased largely as second homes and the off-water homes are mostly primary homes.  The two types of homes service vastly different purposes and customers.


                                                                           2012                 2013

                        Oneida Off-Water                   $107,264         $116,168

                        Oneida On-Water                   $290,186         $266,486

                        Vilas Off-Water                       $113,459         $129,956

                        Vilas On-Water                       $304,569         $291,431


What is interesting is off-water homes are up in value.  It is another story for on-water homes.  Why are on-water homes suffering while off-water homes are on the rise?   My theory is that last year we were selling more bank-owned homes.  Over 80% of these homes were off-water.  This year there are far fewer bank-owned homes and that is driving off-water home prices up. 


On-water home sales still have not seen a recovery.  Most of these homes are second homes and it is apparent to me that the economy has not yet recovered enough to improve the market for vacation homes.
