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: Be A BIG Man, Own a Honda N600! - 01/19/17 02:07 PM

Why own a monster truck that makes you look little when you stand next to it? 
While having my "RealMan Van" serviced it was fun to see this vintage Honda N600 in the showroom. It is a 1972 and the history on it says the engine could achieve 9000 rpm, produce between 36 to 45 hp. The N600 was capable of speeds up to 81 mph. It had 10" tires and the entire car weighed just 1,119 pounds.
If you are looking for something a little roomier to raise your family in I can help you with that. Just give me a call … (7 comments)

national marketing realtors: 3 In A Row - 01/19/17 08:54 AM

The spring like weather we are having is giving us some beautiful sunrises, 3 days in a row now (that I have witnessed). Of course here in North Dakota we are really only about half way through our winter and will most likely see snow another 3 months BUT we sure can enjoy this "January Thaw". I took this picture specifically for Robert Vegas Bob Swetz Cloud Group, hope you enjoy it.

Hope you stay in the "Pink" today.

national marketing realtors: FANTASTIC Sunrise This Morning in Minot, 01/17/2017 - 01/17/17 06:44 AM

I am so glad that I'm an early riser. I am almost always in the office by 7:00 AM. I'm also glad I have a window office or I would have missed this fantastic sunrise this morning. God is the most amazing artist, no man will every have the entire atmosphere as his canvas... and just look at what God does with it!
These pictures were taken with my 3 year old Samsung phone, no filtering, no editing of any kind.

What appears as a mountain is a very large pile of snow in our parking lot. The next picture is also unedited … (15 comments)

national marketing realtors: Great Credit Advice from Rainer Christina Hayes - 01/16/17 05:11 PM

Maxed out your credit card?
Put it on ice... Literally!
This is some great advise from fellow blogger Christina Hayes (Rainer) here on Active Rain in her post How to obtain an 800 credit score! 
Christina says: "If you are carrying credit card balances, don’t cancel the cards just yet. I just need you to put them on ice literally. Drop the cards in a container, add water and freeze them."
Of course I'm going to say that is really COOL advice and it makes so much sense for the compulsive shopper. If there is something you really need you can wait for that block of ice … (5 comments)

national marketing realtors: Heat Wave in January, Minot ND - 01/15/17 01:16 PM

After a couple of weeks of sub-zero temps anything above 20 degrees feels like a heat wave. This doesn't go just for locals, our Vicar (pastor in training) from Seattle WA mentioned from the pulpit that he couldn't believe how "warm" 20 degrees felt.
Tina urged her brother Timmothy to help build a snow fort (tunnel) out of the mountain of snow off our back deck. Prior to that Timmothy and I shoveled the bulk of the 43" of snow off of the deck. So far it's been a 2 day project. We hope to get it completed tomorrow.

national marketing realtors: Attention Minot! Is FEMA Trying To Tell Us Something? - 01/13/17 12:24 PM

We received 43" of snow in a short amount of time and all the climatological experts have been telling us that it will have no bearing on spring run-off or flooding...
So why did FEMA send out thousands of brochures on flood insurance to local Realtors this week?
This is just SOME of the literature FEMA sent me this week. I/our Real Estate agency has never received information from FEMA in the past so I'm wondering if they are trying to tell us something.
If you would like to stop in and pick up information on FEMA and flood insurance stop in soon before it's gone.

national marketing realtors: Why Should I / Shouldn't I Ride With My Realtor? - 01/09/17 05:16 PM

Our Realtor Offered To Drive Us To Look At The Houses We Picked Out, Should We Ride Along?
As recently as 10 years ago it seemed as though buyers who asked to see homes would jump into a Realtors car without giving it a second thought. Today however it is rare for a buyer to ride along.
There are many things to consider when this question comes up. First, assuming that the Realtor knows you (and your family) will fit in his/her car, you need to access if there are any special needs to be met such as an infant car seat.

national marketing realtors: Know (or Snow) Your Limits. - 01/05/17 05:06 PM
 
Two Years ago in February of 2015 I had a heart attack. If you were to ask me to describe my health a day earlier I’d tell you I was as healthy as a horse, much better than the average 60 year old (which I was at the time).
If memory serves me right it was a little after dinner time that I was feeling some discomfort. I thought it was indigestion as none of the symptoms I was experiencing were the signs we typically hear of for a heart attack. There was no elephant on my chest and my arms did … (17 comments)

national marketing realtors: What is the Maysa Arena in Minot ND - 01/04/17 12:57 PM

The Maysa Arena In Minot ND
Even if you have no interest in Ice Skating or Hockey it's worth your time to know about Minot's Maysa Arena.
You can click on the link above (the title) to learn all about the Maysa Arena but here is my short take on it. I do not skate but this is a fabulous facility that is also available for business meetings, concerts and more. 
There are 3 sheets of ice available as pictured below with the 3rd sheet of ice just recently opened. This newest sheet has seating for about 3,500 fans and is super top notch.
1st and original sheet … (7 comments)

national marketing realtors: Where Is Debra Court In Minot ND by Bob Timm - 01/03/17 09:28 AM

There are only 3 homes located on Debra Court in NW Minot ND. The City assessor has these three homes valued from $220,000. to $259,000. These homes were built between 1974 and 1975. I found it interesting that the last time a home was sold on Debra court was in 2005. Evidently Debra Court is a great place to live and stay put!
If you would like to live on Debra Court and you have enough money to make an offer these folks can't refuse give me a call and I will write that offer for you.

national marketing realtors: Why I Was In the Office Today (January 2nd, technically a holiday) - 01/02/17 04:26 PM

Earlier today I asked the question: Why are you in the office today?
It's January 2nd, technically a holiday, banks are closed as well as government offices.. so why are you in the office?
The answer for myself is that I'm getting my books in order for tax reasons. I want to be more "on top of" my file keeping in 2017 then in previous years. File keeping has always been a chore I've passed on to my secretary and accountant. I'm thinking if I keep better tabs on where the money is going I can make my corporation run more … (17 comments)

KILLING SOMEONE IS A HASSLE Finding a designated driver is an inconvenience. In 2014, 9,967 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes, accounting for nearly one-third (31%) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.
