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.

Twin Cities Market Update – June 9, 2017

The current situation for residential real estate is the ongoing situation for residential real estate. The market is active, and the trend lines are showing nothing out of a long-standing ordinary.

The Journey to the Right Home For Jeremy and Amy

Jeremy and Amy reached out to me about selling their home that they had outgrown (which we did very quickly!) and buying the right home. They really dreamed of being in a very specific neighborhood in Minneapolis and so we set out to do all we could to find them a home there. The neighborhood […]

Twin Cities Market Update – June 2, 2017

Mortgage rates have fallen to their lowest levels so far this year but remain above where they were last year at this time. The market has proven to be ready for higher rates, as many homes continue to sell rapidly, often above the asking price. As long as there is ample supply, which is not […]
