The Map Is Back.

April 8, 2014

One long term and fairly popular feature of this website has been the “current lakeshore listings map” (located at the top of the right hand side bar).

Unfortunately, the online map service that (previously) offered the complimentary custom online mapping for that map has, over the last several months, become unresponsive.

The map has progressively gone out of date while waiting for a resolution to the issue.

The issue needed a fix.

So the map was moved to another online mapping service and all of data has been updated.  Please use this map to view the location of current of active waterfront listings in the Lake Vermilion area.

Try the County Land Explorer.  It’s fun and educational!

Because Someone Asked.

July 3, 2013

I’ve had this question come up before… “Are properties selling at or near their current assessed tax value?”

Well, twenty-seven (27) year to date Lake Vermilion sales (that contained the appropriate associated data from the local Multiple Listing Service) revealed the following:

Of that group of 27 completed sales, only four (4) sold within 10% of their St. Louis County determined taxable value.  The final sales prices were a very broad range of 40% to 143% of the taxable value!

Of interest, but of questionable value, is the fact that the average percentage of the group was 98%.
