The Spring Selling Season: New Listings by Month

The Twin Cities Spring real estate market is a bit of a chicken and egg question.  Do the buyers come out first, then the sellers respond by putting their homes on the market? Or, do the sellers put their homes on the market drawing out buyers?  What we've seen as a general trend in the Twin Cities, is; over the years, there has been a reliable pattern that sellers begin to put homes on the market in February, after the Super Bowl. From there, the numbers of new listings per month continues to rise.  It will be interesting to see how the 2017 market plays out.

Along with the general seasonal trends we see in the overall market, the Country Club neighborhood, as noted in the chart below, saw a large

Do you do your own house painting? 

I always have; I find it therapeutic and rewarding.  It is the easiest and least expensive thing you can do to change a room.  We purchased our home in September of last year and have slowly been painting our way through the house.  We finally made it to the loft, which is just a spiral staircase climb above the master bedroom this week.

Yes, it's December and the days of summer are long behind us. And, with that, days spent on the lake soaking up the sun and swimming in the cool waters. But, here's your chance to step back in time and yearn for days gone by with drone footage of an incredible listing for sale in Orono.

Situated in Lafayette Bay, on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, this home rests on 1.40 acres and 180 feet of gorgeous shoreline. Beautiful landscaped grounds and mature trees offer privacy and level lake shore views. If swimming in a lake isn't your "thing", don't fret as there's a pool on the property too. Be sure to note that the pool isn't like most, which have a barrier of concrete. Instead, this pool has a small concrete rim, about 2.5 feet, and is
