homes for sale: How many homes should I be looking at? - 07/22/11 09:31 AM
"How many homes should I be looking at?" is a question I am often asked by first time home buyers when we sit down for the initial consult. I have read many studies on the topic and find the average consumer begins clicking through homes on the net around 12 to 18 months before their date of closing! This is more of an information gathering stage regarding age of homes in certain parts of town and nearby parks or schools.
Between 6 and 8 months out the average home buyer may begin calling on signs or even visiting open houses while … (1 comments)

homes for sale: What if we removed all our furniture? - 07/14/11 04:21 AM
 
I wanted to get your thoughts on if we move Aug. 18-20, what if we clear everything out of our house. My wife is pretty convinced that it'll appear larger with nothing in it but I'm on the fence. Are the pictures of how we had stuff in the rooms enough if nothing was in them? What do you think?
Mr. Homeowner,
The reason for staging is to create an experience, define space, and help the buyer visualize how they can use the different spaces in the home. If you pull everything out it's left to their imagination and most of … (1 comments)

homes for sale: Update: The flying iPad will be able to limp through the summer! - 06/28/11 03:26 AM
The flying iPad will make it through the summer! I found a guy in the Maplewood Mall who agreed to fix the screen for $150, of course, no warranties. Worth a shot I say, by October or November I'm sure we'll see an iPad 3 and all I'm doing at this point is email, sign-my-pad, listing presentation in keynote, mls access, dropbox with team, mozy for personal, blog posting... hootsuite, facebook, Twitter... wait a minute. In just 3 short months this oversized cell phone that's not a phone took the place of my right leg! I hope this fix holds or … (0 comments)

homes for sale: An iPad does not fly.... I checked, there is no App for that! - 06/27/11 05:44 AM
This weekend I found out that an iPad does not fly.... I checked, there is no App for that! I set it on the roof of my car and decided to check something out in the back yard. Distracted by a text while returning to the garage, jumped in my car and took off for the 11AM first time home-buyer consult at the office. I am amazed it made 7 corners before bouncing off my trunk at about 40MPH and splattering across the pavement! Cost for Apple to fix, about $375. Cost to buy an exact replacement $399. The look on my face … (3 comments)

homes for sale: Median sales price of Woodbury's traditional inventory is going up! - 06/21/11 05:12 AM
The median sales price of Woodury's traditional inventory is going up! You will not hear this on the 5 o'clock news! There is not enough "doom and gloom" Traditional sale prices on the increase in Woodbury? Well, let's not jump to conclusions here there is an explanation for this. It does, however, add to my cautious optimism that we are in the midst of a bottom... let' hope this final round of upper bracket foreclosures do not flood the market again pushing prices further downward!

Well, it's official... 3 straight weeks of declining showing activity. The spring market has passed us by and now we gear up for the next push. 4th of July... wait. I never hear about that market? Unless you track showing activity daily you would not because it's pretty discrete compared to spring and fall. I see it as the … (0 comments)

Last night I attended a informal get together for the local chamber of commerce and I'm looking for any feedback from the AR community on how helpful (or not) their chamber has been in promoting your practice to the business community. Just like any other networking event or opportunity you get names build relationships etc. what else could I … (0 comments)

I hear people say this with their appliances and electrical devices, things just don't seem to last like they used to. Take for instance, I see whatever heaters that are either less than 7 years old and 15 years plus and still working great.... what happened in there, late 90's early 2000 where they just break down after 7 … (0 comments)

homes for sale: Woodbury showings down about 15% last week. - 11/09/10 08:32 AM
The twin cities real estate market is showing some signs of weakness right now. But not for The Johnson Real Estate Group, we have received two contracts on short sales and hope to see another shortly on a third home. Sure, there are ups and downs and seasonality issues that must be observed but everyone needs a roof over their heads and you are not going to stop that need just because of an election or holidays.... The next two months are when most major corporations move around their key employees so if you are in Woodbury Minnesota and are thinking … (0 comments)
