alliance real estate: They Built The Wall - 10/18/18 01:56 PM
It's a great wall but it's NOT "The" Great Wall.
It took 20 years to build The Great Wall of China. Once they got started on the retaining wall at 9 11th Ave NE Minot North Dakota it took about three weeks. Now that it's up the contractor can get a Certificate of Occupancy and some lucky home buyer can purchase the home and move in. This is a great home and has served as my office for about 6 months.
           
I'm not looking forward to moving my office but to think of the joy this home will bring someone … (11 comments)

alliance real estate: A GREAT place to build. 1/2 acre lot in SE Minot. - 06/08/18 09:10 AM

We just dropped the price on this unique SE Minot property to $26,000.
This is a developed lot with all the utilities to where the house once was. The lot has been cleared and there are no longer any structures upon it. 
Please note that what looks like a driveway is actually platted by the City as a 
Cul-de-sac.
This lot is perfect for the person who wants a LARGE shop on their property or maybe a 4 stall or larger garage.
Current owner purchased this property and leveled the rundown shack, removed the debris, and cleaned up the lot and dead trees. The shack sat on a … (13 comments)

alliance real estate: Holy Entertainment Overload Batman! - 06/01/18 08:36 AM

I could add about 6 more events posted on the VisitMinot.org website as well but this is enough to cover for now.
The Final Import Shop Sale is a joint effort by several Lutheran churches in town who closed their joint retail booth at the Norsk Hostfest (North America's largest Scandinavian Festival). Look for some very beautiful sweaters and much, much more at this sale.
If you can not find what you want at the sale above then head to the Surry City Wide Rummage Sale, I'm plan on it!

alliance real estate: Opportunity Is Knocking for Entrepreneurs in Minot ND - 05/31/18 01:08 PM

BIG NEWS in Minot for entrepreneurs. A federal program to develop Opportunity Zones has come to town. Minot is one of 25 North Dakota communities to make it into the program and the chosen area for Minot is the downtown area, to include the previously established Renaissance Zone. Minot City Manager Tom Barry calls it a "Double Positive"! This is a tax incentive program administered through the U.S. Department of Treasury which will provide tax incentives and capital gains exceptions. More information on the program is expected to be available later this month.
This is part of the 2017 Tax Reform Act passed by … (11 comments)

alliance real estate: Thursday May 31st is Busy, Busy in Minot ND - 05/30/18 07:51 AM
Although I have yet to attend a Coffee with a Cop event I've always wanted to so I could express my appreciation for what they do. I'll put that on the top of my list for tomorrow.
Minot is blessed to have several libraries and the 3 I am familiar with are all GREAT. I'm thinking of the City library, The County library, and the university library.
Give Parents a Break Night sounds like a great idea for those who have smaller children.
Tacos and Tunes... what could be better than that? Aaron Simmons is a musician from my home town of Moorhead MN so I … (12 comments)

alliance real estate: What's Happening in Minot Wednesday 5/30/2018 - 05/29/18 12:48 PM

First I will start out with an apology that I did not post yesterday. It was a day with family, some who I have not seen in years. It was really a great holiday weekend with my daughter graduating from high school and relatives here to celebrate her accomplishment.
The bulk of the information I'm sharing with you today comes from the Visit Minot website and a little bit from The Minot Daily News.

alliance real estate: What's Happening on Memorial Day in Minot ND 2018 - 05/27/18 08:52 AM

There is to much for me to cover here BUT why not start out with the Boy Scout Breakfast.
Thank God for all the events honoring the people of the past. Memorial day is NOT just for lost military loved ones, it's for honoring all people who have been important in our lives. With my siblings coming to town for my daughters graduation we will be doing a lot of reminiscing about mom and dad as well as our grandparents. I will also be remembering lost friends, teachers, preachers and more. I hope you will be too.
Have a wonderful and blessed Memorial Day.

alliance real estate: Condo/Townhouse Activity in Minot, Week ending 05/27/2018 - 05/26/18 03:54 PM

05/27/2018
Available Condos & Town homes in Minot ND.
There are currently 34 Condominiums and 33 Townhomes for a total of 67 units available in Minot ND. They range in price from $79,900 to $359,900. The average listing price is $203,969. The average days on market is 89.
 
Frankly I was surprised by this report that there were no sales in this category last week. However, having dealt with a certain property appraiser last week I wouldn't doubt he single handily has killed several sales with his crappy attitude towards townhomes and VA buyers in particular.

alliance real estate: What's Happening Sunday May 27th in Minot ND - 05/26/18 01:47 PM

Just like any other Sunday I would encourage you to go to your favorite house of worship. A family built on faith will have a much better chance of surviving lifes storms together of they share their faith together.
Of course the BIG event in the Timm family household on Sunday will be the graduation of Tina Natalie Timm, my daughter. Minot High School will hold its graduation ceremony on Sunday, May 27, at 2:00 p.m., at the Minot State University Dome. Friends and relatives unable to attend the ceremony can also view the broadcast live by logging on to the Minot Public … (9 comments)

alliance real estate: Minot Real Estate Today interviews Jeff Hoverson - 05/25/18 06:47 AM
Few thing effect Real Estate as much as government policy yet most people haven't a clue that this is true. Government policy has a HUGE effect on Real Estate.

alliance real estate: Minot, Saturday 05/26/2018, Keep Up If You Can - 05/25/18 06:29 AM

The list in the paper today is short but for me VERY sweet!
I love looking at old tractors! I do not have an agricultural background but when I look at vintage machines like this I marvel at the ingenuity used in their time to make these beasts operate.
Car Audio Competition (bring ear protection). Come see the systems that can make your ears bleed. A couple of lifetimes ago I worked for Stero One in Fargo ND. It was the most high-end stereo store in the State and we sold systems like this all the time. We also had an annual contest … (8 comments)

alliance real estate: What's Happening In Minot Thursday 05/24/2018 - 05/23/18 07:23 AM

As you can see the list is a long one again and some of it is self explanatory. There is something for every age group. Of course the two events that include Mexican food have my interest:
Taco John's Crunch For A Cause is a benefit this week for one of Minot's well known dance studios. I know having a child in dance class can be very expensive. I assume this is to help out with costumes and travel expenses. BTW if you hadn't heard me say this before it's my humble opinion that Taco John's serves the best food on Earth.
