I love what I do. It gives me the flexibility to do other things if I so desire. I love to remodel and do a little handyman things for a few elderly people. At my closing the other day, while waiting for the copies and our checks, we were talking about things we enjoyed doing.  When the buyer found out I did some handy work...he asked me if he could hire me. I told him sure, and slotted off two 4 hours days to help him. We need to let people know what we do.  Otherwise...who else is going to tell them!

When looking at the state as a whole....Homes sales are up including NEW home starts. Again, that is a STATE wide calculation.  Some areas are still very slow.  Bravo for the LOCAL media for reporting information that is relative to our state. Now I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop!  One good news story is usually followed by a week or 10 days of bad news that is so general by is enough to scare the pants off buyers. If you are planning on buying anytime soon, get on it!   Interest is still low, but the selection is small and I am seeing many more multiple offers every week.  5 offers on the last house we offered on and we lost it even with offering 9% over list!!!! This same scenario is happening in many towns around the state.  Call today and still be in before The holidays!!!

It was a Birthday weekend and the house was full.  We had a great time and I even git in some business without disrupting the celebration. Now, everyone is gone and it is quiet.  The weather is cloudy and misty and with all my business all caught up I am thinking of taking a nap. The tough part is that it has been so long since I have taken a nap, I am not sure I remember how. Well, there is only one way to find out....

With the number of closed sales dramatically down for the first time in two years and new listings are down for the second year in a row it appears that East Bethel home inventory levels are rising a bit again. While this northern Anoka County community did see a drop in the average sales price in 2010 compared to statistics in 2008 and 2009, rising inventory shows the market still has a few bumps ahead. The ratio comparing sold price to list price did see a bit of a comeback in 2010 but at just over 90% it is still one of the lowest in the north and east metro communities I work in. The Days on the market statistic is also down significantly…not surprisingly as home continue to be priced very attractively in this community and I believe this will continue throughout 2011.  FEATURED EA...

There are several things that you don't want to hear while flying.  Grab your Parachutes.  or, Sorry, he got the last one.  You get the idea.  Well, here is one that could make you a bit nervous.   When the passenger jet had reached it's crusing altitude, the Captain voice come over the loud speaker... "Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to flight 145 to Toronto.  It is a beautiful day and we should have a smooth flight.  So just sit back and relax and...OH MY GOD!!!" Then SILENCE.... Moments later, the Captain came back on..."Ladies and Gentlemen, I am sorry if I scared you.  One of the flight attendants spilled a cup of coffee in my lap...You should see the front of my pants!" To which a passenger in teh back yelled..."Yea, Well you should see the back of mine!"

With the number of closed sales dramatically up for the second year in a row and this year new listings dramatically down, there is significantly less real estate inventory to start off 2010 in the East Bethel. While this northern Anoka County community did see a drop in the average sales price in 2009 compared to statistics in 2008, lower inventory is a good indicator of a more balanced market on the horizon. The ratio comparing sold price to list price did see a bit of a comeback in 2009 but at just over 90% it is one of the lowest in the north and east metro communities I work in. The Days on the market statistic is also up again for the second year in a row; this is significant as many surrounding communities did see a bit of a drop in DOM in 2009.

While the number of closed sales was up, the average sales price was down significantly for homes in the East Bethel community in 2008 compared to statistics in 2007. Like in other areas, new listings were down too. At under 88%, the ratio comparing sold price to list price it is one of the lowest in the north and east metro communities I work in. Days on the market is also significantly longer as it took almost 6 weeks longer for an East Bethel home to sell in 2008 than in 2007.

I know I blogged back in october or so about the need to take care of our pets in the cold climes.  Well, I just happened not far from me.  The families dogs (4) we under feed, not housed and nearly dead.  How can you have a pet and not take care of them.  It is a big resposiblity tham many should not have.  I am sure there are a lot more out there...including larger animals.  Please, be kind!  If you can't take care of them, find someone who can! Not all animals are able to handle the elements like these guys!

I just had the pleasure of seeing the Church Basement Ladies play at the Plymouth Play House. This is a sequel and the say it was just as good as the first one.  We took a small bus tour, 18 friends and relatives among 20+ NEW friends.  My wife and I hit several plays a year, and if you haven't taken the time to do this, find a small playhouse and set back and enjoy.  It's down home fun!!!

I try to avoid driving on Hwy 65 when showing houses in Anoka County. The backroads throughout Ham Lake, Linwood, Blaine and East Bethel are more picturesque. But a shortcut to our favorite movie theater in East Bethel from our Ham Lake home has my family driving down a short stretch of the Hwy 65 service road quite often. About two months ago, we noticed a enormous log standing straight up toward the sky and surrounded by scaffolding. There was the beginnings of a bear head on top of this huge piece of wood in the old Lefty Liquor's parking lot. Of course, since we were heading to the movies, I had no camera with. So I made a mental note that this chainsaw masterpiece in the making was one to watch.About a week later, we drove past again. That mental note popped up but too late to reme...
