So the state of the economy sucks and the stock market is continuing in a downward spiral. Lately, I feel like a big pessimists. I need to keep my eyes off the news and focus on the positives.

What makes Ottertail County a great region to live and visit? My Answer: The hunting opportunities. There are a number of great things that make this area an awesome place to live. We have more lakes in this county than any other county in the United States. We have a landscape of incredible beauty and we have four seasons of weather.  My personal favorite season is Autumn. The reason for it being my favorite season is because it is when the football season starts and hunting season starts. We have it all in this area from the stand point of an outdoors man. You can start hunting September 1 and hunt all the way through December 31.Hunters have the opportunity to hunt, ducks, geese, pheasants, grouse, prairie chickens, snow geese, turkeys, mourning doves, deer, and various small game th...

As of the writing of this post the government has recently taken over Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac. Two of the largest backers of mortgages in the United States. So what does this mean for the real estate market? My oppinion is that it will help out the real estate market based on the following reasons. 1. Interest rates have initially dropped. This should create some stability in the market. The excess supply of homes for sale should decrease in time as demand for homes increases.  2. Prospective buyers will now purchase. Since rates have dropped the cost of home ownership has dropped. Monthly mortgage payments will have dropped and buyers are now able to purchase more. Buyers now are able to purchase more bang for their buck. 3. Cheaper Rates- Homeowners that are feeling the squeeze of an...
