national marketing realtors: Minot ND Housing Report for the week ending 09/24/2016 - 09/24/16 07:15 AM

We had only 16 closings this week, far better than the 9 of last week. Of the homes that closed this week the average days on market was 140 days (nothing to be alarmed about as this number is a bit skewed being one of the homes was on the market for about two years).
 
The chart above is the total MLS activity for the week. This includes ALL types of properties as well as all cities in our MLS. The chart below is very restrictive as explained below.

national marketing realtors: My Bicycle Built For Two - 09/17/16 10:54 AM

I got her a long time ago and she was old then but the romantic in me could not turn down the offer of owning a bicycle built for two.
 
I love taking her for a spin weather it be with my bride or with one of my kids. We always get a lot of looks and thumbs up when we are out. Oddley enough I've found that men seem to find a bicycle built for two as being more romantic then women do. What do you think?

national marketing realtors: Affordable Rural Property OPEN HOUSE - 09/17/16 05:48 AM

DON'T BUY THE FARM!
You don't have to buy a farm to enjoy living outside of Minot. Enjoy the tax benefits, avoid the "good old boys" political club, and even raise chickens if you want.
With this home you don't even have to buy a tractor while living in the country. The lot is only slightly larger than a city lot so you can still easily mow it with a push mower (of course it is rural so you can tell your wife you need a big honkin garden tractor with all the attachments if you want to).
This beautifly remodeled home is just … (11 comments)

national marketing realtors: Why Don't I "Get It" ? - 09/14/16 05:54 AM

Over the last 10 or so years there seems to be a real preoccupation with death and death symbols, I don't get it. Of course I remember some of the outlandish things Alice Cooper did 45 years ago and I thought it was cool but I was a teen then and most adults recognized that AC was in it for the shock value and the money but that his message was appalling.
When I saw this van yesterday it wasn't anything I had not seen before but I just wondered... are these really adults? Maybe when Alice Cooper sang "Dead Babies" in … (16 comments)

national marketing realtors: That's A Lot Of Hot Air - 09/13/16 07:19 PM

And you thought I was talking about politics.
We don't see a lot of balloons here so when this one passed over tonight I had to test out my telephoto lens. The balloon was traveling at a pretty good clip and was a fair distance before I got the camera in hand.

national marketing realtors: The Worst Muscle Pain I Remember - 09/13/16 06:28 AM

The change of the seasons reminds me of the worst muscle pain I ever had.
If you are guessing that it had something to do with shoveling snow you would only be half right.
The incident happened about 30 years ago when I was single and in peak physical condition. (no that is not me to the left, back then I think my biceps were larger and I'd be cradling a puppy, not a cat)
My neighboring house was occupied by 3 young men. It had an entry way on the front of the house. A well placed snowball striking that entry way would sound like a bomb … (7 comments)

national marketing realtors: The Days Are Getting Chilly So Stop In For Chili - 09/12/16 05:27 PM
 
The weatherman just announced possible freezing in some areas of North Dakota tonight.
What could be better than a bowl of Chili on a chilly day?
I can't promise the weather will be chilly this coming Sunday, September 18th but I can promise you a GREAT bowl of chili from 10:30 AM until it's all gone.
I've challenged my wife to see who can make the best bowl of chili (actually best vat of chili would be more accurate) and there should be about 8 more challengers entered into the mix.
In addition to the chili there will be a silent auction, photo booth, T-shirts for sale and more. The chili is FREE but it's … (13 comments)

national marketing realtors: The Annual Chore Of Storing Away The Window AC Units - 09/11/16 04:01 PM

As you put away your window AC units for the season a minimal amount of maintenance now will make installing your unit(s) more enjoyable next season.
 
Leaving a window AC unit in the window over the winter is a BAD idea. It's hard on the AC unit and even with a good cover over the unit you will experience heat loss. Once you have removed it maintenance will be minimal.

Good news and bad news to report in last weeks sales figures. We had a huge DIVE this week with only 9 closings compared to last week’s 19 closings (the most in a week this year).

national marketing realtors: You Will Love Living In Minot ND - 09/08/16 11:23 AM

Minot North Dakota is nestled in the Mouse River Valley. This picture is taken from the "North Hill" location of the Grand Hotel. The City long out grew the Valley itself and spread across the plain and through the many scenic Coulees around the Valley. No matter where you are in Minot a beautiful view is very near by.
This picture was taken no more than 2 city blocks away from the picture above. The Coulees running all through town provide a wonderful safe haven for deer, pheasants, wild turkeys and more. Western North Dakota is a sportsman's paradise.
The Minot Air Force Base is located … (9 comments)

national marketing realtors: Dad Starts Drivers Education Again - 09/06/16 09:14 AM

With one of my kids freshly licensed this summer it's now time to start my second (Timmothy) on the training. Yesterday was day one of Dad (me) teaching Timmothy how to drive.
Timmothy is an excellent student and he is meticulous at "getting things right" so I think teaching him to drive is going to be a snap. Yesterday we drove around my office and the neighboring two businesses for about a half hour. It was really fun to see my son beaming with pride in his accomplishment of completing driving lesson #1. It made dad pretty proud too.

national marketing realtors: Adventure Can Be As Close As Your Back Yard - 09/05/16 05:39 PM

I love the sense of adventure youth have. Yesterday tree trimmers were over and left a mess all over our yard. After we spent an hour cleaning up the mess my daughter could not resist the temptation to see if she could tunnel through to the other side. She did. Timmothy shortly followed after. The two guinea pigs watched on.

national marketing realtors: Have You Heard Of "Go Fund Me"? - 09/05/16 06:15 AM

This is an appeal to my Christian friends on Active Rain or anyone else who would like to help my 16 year old daughter go on a mission trip to Chile this November.
Is a wonderful website where you can post a financial need and like minded folks can come to your financial aid to help.
Here is Tina's plea: 
I'm a 16 year old girl dedicated to Jesus Christ and I have been asked to join my church’s mission trip to Chile this fall. The trip to go there is expensive at $2,800 and I would love to have your help to fund … (6 comments)

national marketing realtors: A Man's First Ride - 09/01/16 07:21 PM

I have to admit that I don't remember my first ride but seeing this young man on his made me smile and imagine just what I may have been thinking.
I'm sure thoughts about being Fast, Racing, Independance, Travel, and of course getting home in time for diner too. I'm pretty sure my mom didn't paint my toe nail to match my bike though.

national marketing realtors: An Memorial Day Event Worth Traveling 1,000 Miles For - 08/31/16 11:45 AM

There are very few "local" events that I feel are worth traveling a thousand miles to or more. I'd even say it's worth taking a plane up to Rollag MN for the Memorial Day weekend to see the LIVING history of the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion. This video is 6 minutes... I know way to long for social media BUT I promise you it's well worth watching. This is an incredible event for every family member. It's like a carnival for the kids, including the most beautiful steam powered merry-go-round and colliope you have ever seen. My Bride loves it because of the … (13 comments)

national marketing realtors: Tell Us About Your WILD SUCCESS, an AR September Contest - 08/31/16 07:31 AM

We have all tried promotions that ranged from flops to moderately successful BUT have you ever had one that really exceeded your expectations to the point you would say it was Wildly Successful? 
 
I'm not talking about handing out Bic Clic pens here, I'm talking about putting on or sponsoring a promotion that went "through the roof". 
 
In the spirit of Helping Hands, the spirit of Active Rain, the spirit of mentoring others I hope you will share with me and others on Active Rain what that one Wildly Successful promotion is/was. 
 
One of my competitors sponsors a day at the Zoo, paying the gate fee for ALL the general public to … (61 comments)

National Marketing Realtors is proud to be one of four sponsors of
Party In The Park
An event organized to highlight Minot's Backpack Buddies program.
The Backpack Buddies program started at Sunnyside Elementary School in Minot (where my Bride teaches). Teachers and parents concerned that some students coming to school on Monday were coming hungry because they had not eaten all weekend. Irregardless of why they were not being feed these loving teachers and parents wanted to be sure those children had something to eat over the weekend. The program quickly spread to all of the Minot elementary schools.
National Marketing Realtors is very proud to co-sponsor … (8 comments)
