Family Friendly Maple Syruping 

As the daytime weather warms above 32 degrees, it is prime time for tapping maple trees and making syrup, or at least have some fun with kids and learn all about it. 

Through the month of March, there are a number of ffamily friendly Maple Syruping related events and programs in the western suburbs.  

Richardson Nature Center (West Bloomington)
Gale Woods Farm (Minnetrista) 
Wood Lake Nature Center (Richfield)
Eden Prairie Nature Center (Staring Lake)
Lake Minnetonka Regional Park (Mound)
The Landing (Shakopee)
Lowry Nature Center (Victoria)
Baker Park Preserve (Maple Plain)

ONE LAST MAPLE SYRUP EVENT!: The Arboretum in Chanhassen also has their very popular MapleFest experience & pancake breakfast coming up March 26 - more info HERE


This week we look into the higher price bracket. This  sector of the market $575,000+ represents 25% of ALL Single Family homes (Non-new construction) . Year over year,  you can see below that in the SW Metro has a seasonal cyclical trend up during the mid year. The start of 2023 is trending similar to last year with ultra low supply, which even with higher mortgage rate's is still a promising prospect for upcoming home sellers. 

Reference: What is and how relevant is the saturation rate?


The best initial "step" would be an informal 15-20 minute "Cost Versus Benefit Analysis" meeting at your home (no cost or obligation) and you can ask as many questions as you would like about how to do as little work as possible to get the most amount of money for your home.

Staying Local....

There are currently 485 homes of all kinds for sale in the area $87K - $14.75M which you can see HERE

There are currently 56 "Coming Soon" Listings for all of the SW Metro can be found HERE

$427,077 the average price for homes in the Twin Cities for February 2023.

It is interesting to be driving long a road and see a pail with a cover hanging off of a tree. One drip at a time.

Good morning Stieg. I like Maple syrup but have never been involved in its making. Enjoy your day.

I only buy real maple syrup and I have to say yum. I used to love those maple sugar candies too but I don't do actual sweets anymore. But they were yummy
