eden prairie realtor: Do I really "need" to replace my siding? - 08/25/20 11:02 AM
Do I "need" to replace my siding? 
Many homeowners do not do exterior maintenance on their home. It is not very exciting, it takes time, and it is not cheap! For instance, how many HGTV shows spend a bunch of time and money doing siding! NONE! So, it can become something ignored or a more accurate term "deferred", which is a kind way of saying you are ignoring something for one reason or another.
So, lets say you buckle down, and have the home completely redone with vinyl or any number of composite exterior products for $25,000-$40,000. That can certainly do the trick, … (1 comments)

eden prairie realtor: SIX Basic Steps to finding a Real Estate Agent you can trust - 11/05/19 09:37 PM
When making large buying or selling decisions it is vitally important that you choose a Realtor that not only has experience and proven results over time, but also puts you at ease "emotionally" and takes their fiduciary (loyal counseling) duties seriously.... Here are some practical tips to help the process:
Do some "online" research: Is this Realtor respected in your area, by their peers, and has strong and relevant reviews/testimonials about their performance?

Kirk with his wife, Julie and their son Cooper
First, I know what you are thinking. Is this guy crazy? Well, think of it this way. Has there ever been bursts of real estate sales due to "forces" that didn't have any base in logic? Of course there has been.... Let's ponder shall we.
I have had clients buy homes because they really like the neighbors, (one example is a client liking the idea of a MN State Trooper being across the street from his young family) even if the house is not "all" what they really want... Even, the smell of a … (0 comments)

eden prairie realtor: The real estate market has plenty of "fuel" for now.... - 05/11/17 09:12 AM
With housing prices appreciating at levels that far exceed historical norms, some are fearful that the market is heading for another bubble. To alleviate that fear, we just need to look back at the reasons that caused the bubble ten years ago.
We should do a brief review of the recent past here.....Over the last decade, demand for housing was artificially propped up because mortgage lending standards were way too lenient. People that were not qualified to purchase were able to attain a mortgage anyway. Prices began to skyrocket. This increase in demand caused homebuilders in many markets to overbuild.
Eventually, the excess … (1 comments)

eden prairie realtor: The TRUE COST of home buyer "Procrastination" (Waiting!) - 05/07/17 08:02 AM
Procrastination can be a dirty word that costs you far more $$$ later, than it will now...
“Cost of Waiting to Buy” is defined as the additional funds it would take to buy a home if prices and interest rates were to increase over a period of time. Freddie Mac predicts that interest rates will increase to 4.8% by this time next year, while home prices are predicted to appreciate by 4.9% according to CoreLogic. Waiting until next year to buy could cost you thousands of dollars a year for the life of your mortgage!
