A Blow To The Midsection.

May 6, 2012

Since I have pushed much of the content on the ol’ website to the left and right sidebars, I find it increasingly difficult to fill this center section of each page.  The Pic of the Day , Lake Vermilion Area News, and the current listing links get a pretty regular feeding.

But… this mid-section has kind of become the Rodney Dangerfield portion of Lake Vermilion Real Estate dot com.

In years past, during the months of Spring, this area would be filled with notes on perennial topics.  A few examples would include the reemergence of the Cowslips, the spawning run of the Crappie, and a chorus of the local Spring Peepers… just to name a few.

It’s time to dream up some new midsection content.  I have an idea or two.  Do you have any suggestions?


  1. I love the nature stuff, but since this is a realestate blog, perhaps various factoids about the Vermilion real estate stuff.

    Whatever happened with the bogus appraisals on the lake? How do they affect the rest of us?

  2. How about posting some sale prices ?MLS or not this would certainly take some mythology out of the market on both sides.

    I think you do a really good job covering topics that are relevant to lake vermilion and real estate. If I were going to make a suggestion it may be around more comparative data. Showing price trends at Lake V in comparison to other big MN lakes could be interesting. Interviews with other people who can provide some added perspective on the state of the real estate market – other realtors, assessors, newspaper people etc that can help all of us put into context what is happening now versus history. It would also be interesting to know more about other developments around the Lake. What is happening in Tower with the development along the creek for example. New businesses, or interviewing existing business people, for example Sulu’s has been a nice addition to Tower scene the past years. The Farmers Market times and season. Basically, writing about things that add perspective and contribute to the quality of life around the Lake.
    Thanks again for doing a great job of being both informative and personal.

  4. I appreciate all feed back related to the content of this website. I can agree with each and every idea offered.

    This website is maintained as “a resource for current of future Lake Vermilion area property owners”. It is also a tool to assist me in listing and selling real estate. The largest obstacle to add additional content is lack of time (and resources). There aren’t enough hours in the day to maintain real estate sales responsibilities AND produce additional content for the website.

    I will try to keep as much pertinent information posted here as possible. I am lucky to live and work in the Lake Vermilion area and I am thankful to all who find this website useful for their real estate needs.
