As us Minnesotans would say: Okie Dokie, 2014 is underway so what can we expect from the real estate market. I can agree with most of the predictions out there right now so let's briefly talk about them. 1.) Home Sales Will Surge- Right now the market has some good momentum. Whether or not it's a bubble is still to be determined but we do know that appreciation is good, sales are quick, and the market in most places is healthy. 2.) Supply Will Struggle to Keep Up with Demand- With the rates pushing up, buyer's are getting anxious, so we might see inventory struggle to keep up. The inventory has been held down for more than a year now so if the buyer demand continues, this could be a continued struggle through out 2014. 3.) Interest Rates Will Increase Significantly- This has already ha...

I stage many architecturally specific homes. Historical homes, Victorian homes, contemporary homes. mid-century modern and so on. But when I was called to stage this home it was a first. Frank Lloyd Wright inspired with Japanese influences. Ahh....okay. That's a little different. This home was built only a few years ago with very specific architecture as the owner lived many years in Japan and they were going to raise their children and grow old here. Making it in more unusual is that is sat in a neighborhood of 80 - 120 year old homes. Yup...different in the neighborhood is an understatement.  The high end luxury home made the cover of The Home Section of the Minneapolis Star Tribune because of of it's totally green features as well as just plan stunning. Take a look:   When I was call...

  Rates went up quickly earlier this summer… but when the Feds said they’re not going to start TAPERING their buying of MBS (mortgage backed securities) on September 19th rates slid back down.  Many “mortgage guys” out there were Chicken Little and thought the sky was falling and the world was ending. I just picked up 2 of these HARP (Home Affordable Refinance Program) loans just this past week. On both occasions the borrower knew about the program the last couple years but due to an “economic event” (late mortgage payment, job layoff, prior bankruptcy, etc.) they didn’t qualify at the time. Now that they’ve got their situation in a place that they now qualified for the program… it makes sense. Lucky for them we could get them in at a lower rate than we’ve seen in the last couple months...

When the listing agent for a home my clients are buying in St. Paul's Macalaster-Groveland neighborhood told me it was once the site of the Minnesota governor's residence it immediately piqued my interest. It is apparent that this particular stretch of Mac-Groveland bordering the Mississipi River is different. The streets are curving rather than straight, and there is a short divided parkway... ... with a round 'island' in the middle of the intersection at the end of the parkway. The houses are in different styles, built at different times including a whole street of mid-century moderns... but all appear to be upscale custom designs. Then I found an old stone bridge on a drive between two homes next to the one my clients are buying... starting at Mississippi River Boulevard and winding...

When Twin Cities residents think of Crocus Hill they usually think of beautiful mansions and stately historic homes in the area surrounding Grand Avenue, the 'grand' small town street lined with quaint shops, restaurants and businesses that makes this neighborhood so walkable. You can find different definitions of the boundaries of the Crocus Hill neighborhood, but most people think of it as the area between Summit Avenue on north (the longest stretch of mansions on a single road in the US) and St. Clair Avenue on the south... between Lexington and the Grand Avenue hill that descends towards downtown St. Paul. What many people may not realize is that there is a section of this neighborhood at the east end of Goodrich Avenue about a block long that is actually called Crocus Hill... with ...

What Does Sex Trafficking and Home Staging Have in Common?  That isn't a question just to get you wondering what this post is about. This post really is about sex trafficking and Home Staging. They have a lot in common. Really.  Even more so, it has to do with using your God given talents to help others. I use mine to help women coming off the streets that have been caught in the horrific sex trafficking trade.  My latest was to volunteer my time to a Non-profit organization that provides apartments to women that were able to escape this horrible situation. This apartment was to be for a young 18 year old girl who had given birth 3 months prior while she was just 17.  These are not luxury apartments, they are not in nice apartment buildings and they are not in a great area of town. They...

We enjoy visiting our free admission zoo in St Paul, MN...the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory! It is an awesome place both in the summer and winter. From the time I was a kid it was our family gathering spot with reunions, parties and fun place to spend an afternoon. Last summer we got up close and personal with an ostrich that came to the fence to check out the camera.   Current 4BR/3BA Listing in Como Park area: **Como Park Area** 1296 Mackubin Street, St. Paul MN 55117

If you're looking for a new place to live, and titles such as “The City of Neighborhoods” or the “Most Livable City in America” pique your interest, you might want to take a good look at the real estate listings in St. Paul, MN.

Looking for a free family holiday outing? Next Sunday, December 9, 2012 kids can not only visit Santa and his reindeer with excellent photo ops... they can also craft their own handmade gifts to give to loved ones at Santa's Workshop event at 1:00 pm in historic Landmark Center on Rice Park in downtown St. Paul. Bring along your ice skates and you can also go skating while you are there! When we were there yesterday they were hosting a holiday bazaar in the dramatic light-filled atrium. It seems only fitting that next week children will have the opportunity to create their own gifts alongside Santa and his reindeer. I love strolling the streets of St. Paul... has a much quieter vibe than Minneapolis, but also feels more historic and gentrified. I can easily visualize horse-drawn carriag...
