Above average

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 13:48:54 +0000

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun and it is February and all we really care about today is the possibility of breaking the record high temperature for this day. The average high for the day is 29 and the average low is 13. The record low was -20 set in 1936 and we […]

Property taxes will go up

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 13:50:56 +0000

Property taxes are a mystery to many, or maybe to most. Property taxes are collected by the county, in the case of St. Paul it is Ramsey county. Anyone can look up any address and see what the property taxes are, were and possibly will be. There are two basic facts about these taxes and that is […]

Sellers want feedback

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 13:45:59 +0000

Home sellers like to get feedback. They want to know what buyers are saying. Most sellers do not take buyer observations too seriously but some do. Sellers should always keep in mind that the buyers agent is representing the buyer and does not have any duties to the seller and some won’t give feedback at […]

Local agents have aversion to page numbers

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 13:45:04 +0000

The pages are supposed to be numbered on purchase agreements and on the first page there is even a space to put the total number of pages. “Page 1 of_______”.  As a broker I don’t accept purchase agreements without page numbers but apparently other brokers do. Our purchase agreements have some pretty specific instructions on […]

A changing downtown

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 13:45:55 +0000

The skyway to nowhere was torn down over the weekend.  The skyway once connected Dayton’s to the Wabasha court building which was demolished in 02. Sometimes progress is slow. The Dayton’s building, which was vacated by Marshall’s several years ago, will be converted into this parking, retail skating rink thing that I am not sure I understand […]

A time of vigilence

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 14:30:20 +0000

None of us can see the future but we can pay attention to what is going on in the world and make some predictions.  I just found this on the Minnesota Home Ownership Center web site: “Recently we’ve seen consumers with: dangerously designed Contracts-for-Deed; loan products with Debt-To-Income Ratios of more than 55%; buyers who […]

The Inner City

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 13:50:52 +0000

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun.  The pictures were taken on walks in the downtown area. The bricks are all well over a hundred years old the oldest are 150+ years old. They have been covered and painted and patched and uncovered again. If they could talk they could tell us what life was […]

Tax day coming soon

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 13:52:16 +0000

I went to the IRS web site and copied and pasted the answers to the most common and obvious questions home sellers ask about taxes. [Ten tax tips for individuals selling their home] In general, you are eligible to exclude the gain from income if you have owned and used your home as your main […]

Where are the vacant houses?

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 13:45:10 +0000

At one point, in September of 08 during the great recession and housing market crash,  there were 2031 registered vacant buildings in St. Paul. Most of those buildings were someone’s home.  Many were eventually torn down leaving large gaps between the houses on many an inner city block.  As of February 2017 there are 809 […]

Who decides how much a house is worth?

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 13:45:59 +0000

This is the time of year people call and ask me to figure out how much their home is worth, or really what they want to know is how much it will sell for. I look at how much similar homes have sold for recently near the home being priced and I do some number […]
