national marketing realtors: Minot's Feral Cat Problem - 05/23/17 05:28 PM

Minot Has A Cat Problem
That is probably NOT a surprise to many but to my friends on Nextdoor in my neighborhood I keep reading "where are all these cats coming from?" and they are not happy about it.
I'm not surprised because I watch the news and read the newspaper. One report last month said: Minot, a north-central city in North Dakota has launched a project to reduce the feral cat population through reproductive sterilization. The Souris Valley Animal Shelter in Minot received $1,500 in a grant and donations to initiate a program to bring down the city's wild cat population of 1,200,.
That's a … (17 comments)

national marketing realtors: Bad Gas, out of the Can - 05/22/17 07:32 PM

A lot of home owners in North Dakota are firing up their lawn mowers, garden tillers, chain saws, and more.
And many home owners are pulling on those starter cords and nothing is happening... they won't start.
Why is that?
Usually it's bad gas.
OK, it was good gas when it came out of the pump... 9 months ago when you bought it for your lawn mower last fall. There in lies the problem. Gasoline has a shelf life and it's about a month when it comes to today's lawn mowers and today's gas.
Today's lawn mowers are higher performance today then they were years ago and they … (10 comments)

national marketing realtors: My Interview With Aaron Moss of the Minot Police Department - 05/21/17 07:16 PM

On the May 19th Radio Broadcast of Minot Real Estate Today I had a wonderful visit with Aaron Moss of the Minot Police Department Crime Prevention Unit. Aaron has some good tips for all home owners, new and those who have owned homes for many years like myself. BTW did you know that the number one complaint to the ND consumer fraud division is people wanting to get out of their security contracts... and NO... you can not get out of that contract.

national marketing realtors: Minot Real Estate Report, Week Ending 05/20/2017 - 05/20/17 06:42 AM

05/20/2017
A LOT of property was sold in Minot this week (38 properties) but that is not reflected  in our very narrow category of stick-built single family homes within the City limits of Minot. There were 7 homes sold in the aforementioned category. Of the homes that closed this week the average days on market was 150, a huge jump from last week's 94 and that was due to some very over priced homes selling for $30,000 or more less than their original listing prices (I’ve talked before about Realtors “buying” a listing by saying they can get an absurd amount for … (7 comments)

national marketing realtors: Chore Day - 04/23/17 02:41 PM

Yesterday was a day of chores and family. Real Estate has a way of bringing those two together. I could never do what we Realtors do without the help of my family. Ever since my children were old enough to lick a stamp, clean dads office, help decorate for holidays, my family has been behind me 100%.
Yesterday I got a lot of chores done but the biggest one was cleaning a new construction home for a special open house I will be holding this coming Wednesday. We mopped up the sheetrock dust, cleaned the counters, and washed down the driveway and … (8 comments)

Real estate licenses are issued by the State of North Dakota.
 
Those wishing to sell Real Estate in ND must submit to a thorough background check that includes fingerprints and an extensive credit check. (the objective here is that if you can not handle your own finances you should not be handling others, especially on the biggest purchase of their lives)
Examples of those who may be denied: Recent bankruptcies, those with a lean against them for not paying rent or automotive payments, leans for credit card debt, medical debt, and more.
 
Anyone who would like to have a license MUST complete a course … (16 comments)

national marketing realtors: My Ship Is Faster Than Your Ship - 04/16/17 07:37 PM

I don't remember which Star Trek Movie they introduced the The U.S.S. Excelsior NX-2000 in but I do remember that it had Transwarp Drive. How cool would that be?
If you are a sci-fi fan then you know that a Transporter disassembles your molecules in one spot and then in the blink of an eye reassembles them in another spot. "Beam me up Scotty".
Although I thought this was the first mention of a ship "transporting" across space I realized I was wrong when I heard John 6:21 on a tape the other day. Jesus clearly transported the ship the he and the disciples were in … (20 comments)

HAPPY EASTER
FROM BOB TIMM

Okay, so I used the word wonderful to many times but it was really a great week and when you make these recordings on the fly sometimes you just get stuck.
In addition to the great business this week it's also been a delight to attend the worship services associated with Easter this week and all during Lent. I hope you celebrate as well tomorrow and enjoy the day!
