 A Zestimate is Zillow's best estimate of this home's market value. As is says on Zillow's site, it is not an appraisal. Sometimes facts are simply wrong. However, what does Zillow really look at to give these estimates and why might YOUR home be more accurate than another home? Stieg Strand, Broker Associate with RE/MAX Results has been selling homes in Chaska for over 28 years. Stieg takes just a few minutes in this video to discuss the process of a "Zestimate".

What is a Mortgage Recast?Minneapolis, MN: Here in Minnesota where I am based, when you hear 'recast', you might think about casting a line for a big walleye, but actually, a mortgage recast is a little know tool that can allow you to potentially get a lower monthly mortgage payment without the need to actually refinance your current home loan.As a way to save money on interest over time, smart people know that paying as little as one extra payment a year, starting at the beginning of your loan, reduces a 30-year mortgage by six or 7-years. But whether you add a little to each monthly payment, or pay a large one-time lump sum, your required monthly payment amount always stays the same.But, if you have a substantial amount of money you'd like to apply to your mortgage, typically $10,000 ...

Who is buying homes in today's market?Minneapolis, MN:  One thing we know about real estate.  It's forever changing, and always local.  Here are a few notable items from a recent survey from the National Association of REALTORS®At the moment, we are seeing two very distinct buyers.   Buyers with higher incomes remain in the market.  First time home buyers Of course these are not the only people.  Just the biggest percentages, so don't count yourself out if you don't fit one of those two crowds.The income of home buyers has increased 22% since last year, reflecting that ability of buyers with higher incomes to be less affected than others, and still buying homes.  A recent client of mine said "I'm not happy with rates, and prices, but I can afford it."Medium household income of buyers th...
