The Market is Heating Up...Good Time to Meet Our Team

Meet Professional Realtor and Mother of Two, Kate Wall

Helloooo. My name is Jack. And I’m a 10-year-old Brittany. Although I look like a dog, I am actually a human disguised as a dog. I love our neighborhood: Kenwood. Every morning, we walk 2.86-miles around Lake of the Isles. We rarely miss a sunrise. So you see, I’m not just a dog I’m an early bird dog. 

Forgive me for boasting, but you have to know that Kate has a way about her that makes everyone feel at home. She also loves architecture. Which is probably why we live here. These neighborhoods are home to some of the most exquisite examples of architecture in the country. Which makes being a Realtor such a pleasure.

Meet Professional Realtor, Mother of Three and Grandmother to Four, Katie Marxhausen

Hi. I’m Phoebe. I love it when my I get to hang out with my favorite grandma, Katie. I’m still a puppy so I love exploring. Katie takes me on walks through the neighborhood. It’s great. All the people drop what they’re doing and run over to pet me.  Then come the questions. Katie is amazing. She always has answers: “She’s a Burnese Mountain Bouvier Flandres”. “Her vet says she’ll be about 120 pounds”. “Yep, she does eat a lot”.

Her answers are always correct. No wonder she’s such a respected real estate agent. She loves working with people who are new to the area and have lots of

With the beautiful Fall season approaching it is a good time to take stock of your home’s condition and prepare it for the Fall Real Estate Market.

If your home is on the market, there a few simple things that you can do to make sure your home remains in great showing condition. Here a few ideas:

Window washing: If you live in an old home like I did, every fall we had to switch the screens for the storms on the home. It is a perfect opportunity to wash the windows, whether by Windex sprayer at the end or your hose, or professionally. Making a first impression is important, and you would be surprised how dirt on the windows cuts down on the light in a home. Make your home as light and bright as it can be, so it stands out from the rest.

Now is a great time to sell your home and the phenomenal success the Barry Berg Group is having in 2015 is proof!

The first half of 2015 has flown by, having produced multiple sales, multiple new listings and established happy, educated client relationships. We’re always here to assist in the listing of a home and to place clients in their new dream home, and today we want to inform you why NOW is a great time to sell your home in the Twin Cities.

First, it’s a sellers’ market. Single-family homes and condos are in high demand in the Twin Cities, and inventory is low. Low inventory generates competitive demand from buyers, meaning less days on market, multiple offers and collecting maximum value for the home. Many from the Millennial Generation,

We Minnesotans claim to love all four seasons, but let’s admit we especially savor the warmer temperatures and longer days of summer, with backyard BBQ’s, trips to the lake, neighborhood celebrations…road construction and mosquitoes!

Mortgage rates remain at historically low rates meaning buyers are  taking advantage of the season to converge on the housing market.  Multiple offers are common on entry to mid-level priced single family homes and the demand for downtown condominiums and newer construction, in prime urban and suburban areas, remains very solid. 

Even millennials are beginning to recognize that purchasing a home is a better investment than paying rent.  This generation has different priorities and tastes in housing than their

Marriage. Divorce. Funeral. Birth.

Planning for these life altering events top the list of life's stressors. Since these events often trigger and put into motion the process of a move, it places buying and selling a home as a close second.

The distraction of emotions and sense of being overwhelmed sometimes cause us focus on the big things and unwittingly forego the obvious. Do you have a helpful tip based on your recent move? Drop us an email! We are always seeking new ways to assist our clients to make the most of their home buying/selling experience!
