Less Than 1%

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

If I had a dollar for every out of State contractor who has called me in the last 6 months asking if they should bring their crew up here I'd be a wealthy man. If I had a dollar for every contractor who called me and then showed up I'd be penny-less. I do appreciate the calls but get off your butts and get those crews up here and working! It was just announced (again) today that there are less then 1% of Minot's rentals available. Let me say that again less than 1%!!! That even includes units being remodeled. If you have been visiting my website, www.minothome.comyou know that in our fair city of 35,000 there are less then 100 homes for sale. So let me recap: Nothing to rent, next to nothing for sale. Oh, lets not forget 1,000 troops soon to arive at our Air Force Base and an oil boom in progress. Gee this might be a good time to be a tradesman in Minot ND.

If your a contractor feeling sorry for yourself and lamenting that you have laid off your crew what kind of kick in the ass do you need to get up here? Of course we build all year long up here, do you think this is our 1st winter? Get your act together and get up here to Minot ND. We need you, your crew, and a can do attitude.

Great to hear that your market is still strong and that demand has kept things moving along.

Bob - you are very fortunate to be living in an area where the market is contrary to the rest of the U.S.

I have a friend who is a Cement Contractor who is willing to travel to work right now.  I may put the two of you in contact, although, the temps this time of year scare most people.  I've experienced a couple of North Dakota winter storms before and lived to tell about it.

Robert & Mike,

This crazy market also presents a challenge. We have a BIG shortage of houses to sell and yet we still have the same number of agents out there. As you know, the part-timers never go away because they will always have relatives to sell for and that makes the pie really small.


We can use any/every contractor available.
