I've always associated that term to the days that I shot pool for beer money about forty years ago. When you shoot pool for money (usually beer money) you not only need to know what you are doing but you also need to know what the balls are going to do when you call your shot. I never did like sl...
We had just 4 closings this week, two less than last week in our very narrow category of stick-built single family homes within the City limits of Minot. Of the homes that closed this week the average days on market was 103. The chart above is the total MLS activity for the week. This includes AL...
If you are selling a home the more storage space the better, no doubt about it. When you are “living” in a home that same storage space can be a two edged sword.First let me add a caveat to my first statement: being able to show others that your home has a lot of storage space is a good thing… as...

Of the homes that closed this week the average days on market were 209, a big increase from 130 days on market last...

BUT NOW at $5,000.It's got to go!!!It needs some work but but this is a great deal for the first time home owner or for someone wanting to get their feet wet in the rental market. The previous owner got a very good start on remodel...
I am so glad that I'm an early riser. I am almost always in the office by 7:00 AM. I'm also glad I have a window office or I would have missed this fantastic sunrise this morning. God is the most amazing artist, no man will every have the entire atmosphere as his canvas... and just look at what G...

After a couple of weeks of sub-zero temps anything above 20 degrees feels like a heat wave. This doesn't go just for locals, our Vicar (pastor in training) from Seattle WA mentioned from the pulpit that he couldn't believe how "warm" 20 degrees felt.Tina urged her brother Timmothy to help build a...
