Plan Today for Tomorrow’s Dreams


January is an interesting month. The holiday season is over. The hot sales at the malls are almost done. Your house is more or less back in order (no judging if there is a lingering decoration or two!).  There is a quiet calm. It is a time when we are asked “Is now a good [...]

Sold! Sold Sold! Home Market Still Strong!


In December we often get the question: "Should we list our home now or should we wait?" If you are ready, as a seller, the buyers are certainly still out there! And you can bet that any buyer looking is a serious buyer.  Homes show very well and incredibly inviting this time of year. For [...]

Just Listed! Sold! Sold…Again!? What is Going On?!


Your neighbors put their home on the market and a SOLD sign went up right away! Yet now two months later, there doesn’t seem to be a new neighbor moving in? A co-worker told you she bought a home but then 3 weeks later she says the home is no longer hers? This may leave [...]

Maybe It’s The Pumpkins!


Maybe it's the pumpkins, or the apples at the apple orchards, or simply a brisk Fall sunny day. Something calls us to get outside this time of year. Some with purpose: on our way to a birthday party or running errands. But still others enjoy the drive to take in the amazing sights of the [...]

Be Aware of Assessments


Be Aware of Any Assessments! New streets, sidewalks, condo facades and pool decks. We all may agree the end result is beautiful! We may not agree on who, when, and how these assessments should be paid. Buyers should take note of a few points when making a purchase! First, when buying a single family home, [...]

Mom! There is a Realtor at the Door!


What Should I do if Another Realtor Calls and says “I have a buyer for your home?”   Call us right away. We will personally contact the agent to determine if he/she does, in fact, have a buyer or is just ‘fishing for a listing.’ This happens more often than you think! If he/she does have [...]

A Quick Q & A on Today’s Market!


It is May 2018 and the market is in full swing! Listings are coming on and off the market quickly, many sellers are getting 99.1% of asking price, and inventory remains low, thus driving multiple offers in most price ranges!

Buy a Home the Kid in You Would Like


We were showing homes to a couple with three kids. At just the second home on the list of four, their little five-year-old had already had enough.  She sat down in the foyer, put her shoes on and was ready to go.  When her parents asked why she was in such a rush to leave [...]

To Fence or Not to Fence: Why It May Not Be Up to You!

Is Building Right for You?


It is no secret that existing home inventory is low. This shortage extends to many types of buyers, including those looking for a home on acreage. It can be hard to find the right mix: A little acreage, perfect setting, a nice home, an added outbuilding and all at a reasonable price. As buyers consider [...]

Even Santa Needs a Place to Hang His Hat!


2017 was quite the year in real estate!  Our own experience mirrors what the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors shared: a strong market overall yet a continued lack of inventory. In fact, at 1.8 months of inventory, we are at the lowest level in 15 years! The challenge?  Sellers are ready to list, but are [...]

Winter is a good time to sell!


Winter is a Good Time to Sell! Baby, it’s cold outside! But that doesn’t mean it’s time to hibernate until Spring! At least not for buyers and sellers! Why is that? Historically December and January see fewer homes on the market. This creates a unique opportunity for those that stay on the market. For instance, [...]
