st paul: Call Before You Snake? In some areas, that might be a good idea: Crossed Gas and Sewer Lines in St Paul - 07/20/10 10:39 AM
CALL BEFORE YOU SNAKE?  OR Do I need a sewer inspection before purchasing a home?
Yes, there are a few locations in the Twin Cities where natural gas lines were crosed with sewer lines back in the 1980's.  So do you need a sewer inspection before purchasing a home?  Probabaly not.
However, if you have Xcel Energy as your natural gas company, then you might want to call them before you do any plumbing work that goes into the sewer line in your yard or to the street.  They have been doing inspections since May and it could be 3 years before … (3 comments)

st paul: Relocating to Saint Paul? Great St Paul Neighborhood Information & Links! +Housing Statistics for Saint Paul MN 55102, 55116, and Other St Paul Neighborhoods - 08/20/09 08:12 AM
Are you relocating to Saint Paul or moving to a new neighborhood? Here are some great St Paul Neighborhood Links and other real estate information for St Paul!
Sometimes prospective home buyers ask real estate agents to tell them about the ethnic makeup of a neighborhood, where particular religious communities are, what is the family status of the neighboors, or how safe an area is before they purchase a home.
Now I love to be helpful but answering these questions directly would result in discrimination and I firmly believe that everyone is just as good as everyone else.  Not to mention that it … (0 comments)

st paul: Median or Average? What's the difference? Minneapolis Real Estate - 08/30/07 02:33 PM
Housing statistics, such as price - are often stated as either "average" or "median".  So what's the difference and what does it all mean?



The word median, is a statistical measure and it is based on a "normal" bell curve (like the one above).  By definition, it means the middle of the distribution - half of the distribution is below the median and half is above.  In a perfect bell curve, the average and the median are the same.  But in the real world, most things are not perfect.


In the case of housing prices, it is quite common to have a somewhat skewed distribution.  This causes … (0 comments)
