  Are you planning to sell your Ham Lake acreage home this spring? Whether you have modest half an acre or a huge 10 acres spread, you have a private sewer system to get rid of sewage. This will require a disclosure and quite possibly a compliance test. Do you know what these are? Even if you do ...
  Home buyers are poised and ready to purchase in the Twin Cities but there is very little housing inventory right now. I am really surprised at how few listings I am seeing in the north and east metro right now. It is spring after all. And, spring is one of the best time to sell a home in Minnes...
Living on acreage whether open plain, prairie or wooded can be peaceful most of the year. But springtime can bring some unwanted action  Our limited snowfall and lack of spring rains so far has put all of Minnesota in a state of drought. This is not a good situation for our first day of spring in...
Vintage Victorian home overlooking the Mississippi River with a view of the downtown St Paul skyline from the amazing two-story turret! What's not to love? This treasure is located across from Mounds Park. The colorful exterior and iron fencing add to its curb appeal. This home is not for sale b...

It won't  be long before the huge sheets of ice blanketing the surface of our...

Though this morning started out below zero, next week's forecast says SPRING! Yup, the weather men and women are predicting temperatures in the forty's and maybe even 50's! Green grass and budding flowers will not be far behind. Every spring seems to bring some new critter to our Ham Lake backyar...
The real estate market continues to show a strong improvement in Blaine, Minnesota. There is a significant increase in new listings and average price of a home sold in 2014 over 2013. Almost all of Blaine’s lender mediated foreclosure/short sale homes have worked their way through the system and...
      We are currently being blessed (or cursed if you are a snow-lover) with a wimpy winter by Minnesota standards. The early season abundance of snow...way back in November has now dwindled to a pretty low amount of snow cover. This means most roofs are not sporting 3 foot icicles and home dama...
