The Search for “Their Place”

I helped Erich purchase his house in 2012. He is a friend of mine from high school. He graduated with my sister and I graduated with his brother. The 2012 purchase was his first home purchase. He bought in an up-and-coming part of Northeast Minneapolis. Erich got married this year to a great gal, Brittany. […]

Twin Cities Market Update – July 28, 2017

The primary selling season tends to begin a subtle slowdown at this point in the year. That does not necessarily equate to less competition for available housing stock. While total sales and inventory may be lower than at points earlier in the year, those still looking for homes tend to match up with those willing […]

Twin Cities Market Update – July 21, 2017

From a heart-of-summer perspective, the residential real estate market has performed as expected when predictions were made at the front of the year.

Don’t let the title completely discourage you – the reviews on Facebook show that many people were very happy with their first experience at Lynhall. It is new and we know that it can take a […]

Twin Cities Market Update – July 7, 2017

We are now beyond two years of year-over-year declines in inventory, and it doesn’t look like the situation is going to change anytime soon. However, buyer demand and home prices are still rising, and the number of distressed homes on the market has fallen. It would be great to see more starter homes on the […]

Twin Cities Market Update – June 30, 2017

As Millennials get older and more established in their careers, more of them are entering the housing market. Nationwide sales rose to the third-highest level since the housing crisis a decade ago, while home prices also hit record highs. Although increasing prices may push some out of the running for a home purchase, mortgage rates […]

Finding the Perfect Home in Robbinsdale!

Ken and Laurie are friends of mine from church and just all around great people. They reached out to me to help them sell their home in Brooklyn Park and find a bit of a smaller home closer to Minneapolis. When we first met, we landed on a price a bit below what we ultimately […]

Twin Cities Market Update – June 23, 2017

New buyers wanting to make their first home purchase are finding that they would have to spend more of their monthly incomes in order to do so.
