Property Help in Superior,Wisc.

10 posts in this topic

I was made a offer to buy 6 lots from a friend who purchased the lots in the 50s.He passed away few weeks back,and I was informed I was his frist choice to offer this to.

They are on Birch Ave,which is 1 Blk. east of Catlin & Belknap then north 3 Blks by 12th. I dont have all the info yet but I'd like to offer a fair price to his sister thats not to much for me,She's 72 and not much money,so I dont want to burn her and if their to much for me then I could at least help her get a fair price.

So can anyone give me a price range of what lots are going for in that area? These lots are unimproved,their the same as when purchased in the 50s.Could I also get info of what the area is like(the neighborhood I lived south of Duluth for a few years in the 80s)So any and all info would be appreciated. THANKS

I dont plan on driving up till open water

One thing you could do is call a realtor and inquire about lots for sale in that area. Ask for a general price saying you are looking to build or something.

You could also contact the city or county and find out what price they are being assessed at.

The bite has been good you must move from the others. If you now what I mean just get away 100 yards and you will do fine. Do not limit your self to others just move and they will bite. Good fishing to you all.

As mentioned by Powerstroke, you can get the taxable value of the lots from the Douglas County Assessor's Office if you have the legal description of the lots. Taxable value runs below market value by at least 10 percent in most cases, and more in others, but it'll give you a starting point. I find the $150 per lot very hard to believe.

Have you tried getting the tax info from the Douglas Cty website? I'd post the link, but would probably get in trouble. I went there and found a property look up. It says they will tell you the assessed value.

$150.00 sounds low, but it would depend on the lot size. Hopefully it's not a wetland. Good Luck.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
