You show lots for sale where there is a commercial shipping yard, other properties are shown on the wrong side of the bay... if I was not familiar with the area, I would have no idea that…

Right away. Talk to your Realtor and have them find out from the listing agent the details, as is, terms etc. It should be as easy as a regular MLS sale.

My first guess would be a greedy tax authority that over-appraised it in 2012...

Three times around the High Cliff Park lagoon and you've walked or ridden a mile. When the area was blasted decades ago to build the development, natural limestone platforms were left in the lagoon waters. You can literally walk out to the middle. Steep drop-offs surround the platforms. The water flows through it from Green Bay waters therefore mimics Bay water depths just like the aqua lane. Fish and turtles make it their home. An original windmill pump still stands. There is a community pier. It is absolutely perfect for floating with a beer in hand. In winter it freezes over and looks like a picture from Currier and Ives. The exclusive beautiful house on the point does not have direct access -- you have to drive down Bay View Drive to High Cliff Park Road -- then cross the bridge over the aqua lane to reach the lagoon for swimming and fishing. Homes on the island itself front the lagoon and homeowners have been known to bring in sand to create a small private "beach." The absolute finest feature of the whole development is protected waters for docking right in your back yard...and instant access to Green Bay waters. And, of course, Idlewild Golf Course and the Cherryland Airport are two minutes away. Years ago the homeowners' association had to take the High Cliff Park sign off the limestone structure at the corner of County Road M because too many tourists would turn in to explore what was then one of the most exclusive and highly sought after areas in the county. It will come back to that stature one day because no more aqua lanes are allowed. Been vacationing there for 3 has a place on the island now for sale. ... more

Door Co is gorgeous. I've been travelling there for over 20 years and can reassure you the beaches are beautiful, the water safe, and there is no smell. Any of the four seasons are a terrific time to visit, and beauty abounds. Folks complaining (mistakenly) must not have been in Egg Harbor, Door Co, because the area is delightful, like no other place in the Midwest. But keep saying those things...I get you! You want to keep people away and 'Door' a secret! My only regret about vacationing there is not buying a piece of property from the start. ... more

There are ways to purchase your home with no money down, but there are other costs such as property taxes, closing and inspections that you sometimes need to pay out-of-pocket for. The only person that can truly answer your question is a lender in your area. Contact a few and go with the one that you trust! ... more

Hi Christelrandle! I'm not sure which property to which you are referring, so I can't comment on the listing price vs the tax assessed value. I know Diane showed a number of homes that day. However, I can comment on the bad odor or algae issue. Typically, a couple times a year, when the weather and wind is in the right direction, there is a naturally occurring algae buildup. This usually gets washed away in a day or two. In September, I do know that we had a bad storm which blew water into shore, and consequently blowing zebra muscles on to shore to decay. Currently, in the Southern Door area, Brussels, there is absolutely no odor. I'm the Realtor for the Sugar Creek Ln property you may have seen. Call me or email me if you have more questions. Diane is a great gal! ... more
