Insure and winterize

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 21:03:42 +0000

Last year the pipes froze in one of my listings because the seller accidentally turned off the furnace. The water was turned off before the pipes thawed and a plumber helped thaw them out. One pipe burst and most of the faucets in the home needed to be replaced. It could have been much worse. […]

January Real Estate Trends

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 13:50:50 +0000

I must sound like a broken record. The news has been the same every day this year. We have a low number of homes for sale across the metro area. In St. Paul the number of homes for sale has stopped going down but has stayed below 445 which is about a third fewer than […]

The Women’s March

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 14:52:43 +0000

Women marched in St. Paul and in cities all over the world. According to the Saint Paul Police there were 100K people marching in St. Paul yesterday. There were so many people that we almost could not march. This is what a populist movement looks like. Yesterday’s marches were epic and record breaking and they […]

How many Minnesota Realtors?

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 13:47:13 +0000

I write this same or a very similar article every January. For many January is a magical month where people dream of freedom from the shackles of a 9 to 5 job. They do not yet realize that working on a 100% commission basis isn’t for everyone and that people like me die a little every […]

Keep the dream alive

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 13:50:27 +0000

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2016, Monday, Jan. 16,  honors the slain civil rights icon near what would have been his 88th birthday. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created […]

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. It has been a scary week especially for those of us who pay  our own health insurance and instead of belonging to a group that pays less we get to pay extra. The insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies call all the shots (no pun intended) and buy the laws. My health […]

Where the houses go

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 13:45:55 +0000

The graph above is one of the first things I look at each morning. Today there is one more house on the market than there was yesterday but we are still at an all time low for the number of homes for sale and just when I think we have reached bottom we go down […]
