Twin Cities Market Update – May 18, 2018

Year-over-year percentage changes for housing metrics like inventory, median sales price and days on market have sometimes looked dramatic over the past few years in most markets across the country not named Houston. But as faster sales and higher prices persist, another trend is beginning to emerge: reliability. Although more market balance is preferred, the […]

Twin Cities Market Update – May 11, 2018

As with last spring, the home-purchasing season will be competitive this year. Demand is still strong, especially in light of rising mortgage rates.

Twin Cities Market Update – April 27, 2018

One begins to wonder just how long the housing market can work in the favor of sellers. Low inventory continues to create a competitive situation for buyers that has sales prices meeting asking prices and often going over for well-priced homes that show well. As long as buyers continue to form new households and feel […]

From Renter to First-Time Homebuyer! Congrats, Nick!

Nick was excited about the possibility of owning his first home when we first met. He was tired of long commutes and renting a rundown apartment where things were always breaking down and NEVER getting fixed. He wanted the ability to put his own stamp on a home, put some work into it, and call […]

Twin Cities Market Update – April 20, 2018

The spring of 2018 has exhibited weather patterns that many will not soon forget. Professional baseball games are getting canceled due to snow, vacations are being delayed by grounded flights and the usual rush that takes place in the housing market when the names of months get shorter is maintaining a more even pace.

Great People, Great Home! Congratulations, Melissa & Brian!

This was the second time that I had the privilege of working with Melissa & Brian. I helped them purchase their first home five years ago and recently, I helped them sell that first home (we had 13 offers – how fun!) and purchase their DREAM home in Rogers. This home is a perfect fit […]
