Woodbury MN Stonemill Farms Information Center - Durham Executive Group           The above photo is of Newland Commuities original Stonemill Farms Information Center. This property was used as the Stonemill Farms Information Center for a number of years during the early phases of Stonemill Farms development until the Durham Executive Group sold it as a single family home for them.

Woodbury MN Year End 2011 Housing Statistics - Durham Executive Group         Woodbury MN year end 2011 (Jan thru Dec) housing statistics for both zip codes 55125 and 55129 show a continued drop in overall sale prices and a slight up tick to Days on Market Until Sale.

A balanced market is considered when the total monthly supply of homes for sale is between 5 - 6 months. The current monthly supply of homes for sale in Woodbury as of the end of December was 5.8.

2012 Woodbury MN Relocation - Durham Executive Group       The Durham Executive Group helped a 3M family relocate to Woodbury MN with a January 3rd, 2012 closing, which just might have been the very first Woodbury MN closing in 2012 following New Year's Eve day. This was a family who relocated from Missouri and this was the only home they were interested in buying. Great buyer's and wonderful people both John & Becky Durham thoroughly enjoyed working with them.   Here is their feedback to their Relocation Company (SIRVA) and to RE/MAX Results Relocation Director below:   "John & Becky Durham are the ideal real estate agents. We had an OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE and enjoyed working with them. We would recommend them to anyone relocating".

Selling Woodbury MN Homes Above Washington County Estimated Tax Values - Durham Executive Group     All too often seller's are given the impression by real estate agents and the media that homes are always selling for less than County Estimated Tax Valuations and that should not necessarily be a seller's expectations when contemplating putting their home on the market.   This Woodbury MN home was sold by the Durham Executive Group and closed on December 12th, 2011 for approximately $45,000 over the County Extimated Tax Value for 2011. Even better the property sold in approx. a week or less once it went on the market.   If you are contemplating putting your Woodbury MN home on the market in 2012 and you want a professional real estate team to improve your odds of not only selling your ho...

2012 Woodbury Home Sale Activity - Durham Executive Group     The Durham Executive Group has seen strong buyer and selling activity already in early 2012. We had buyers purchase a Woodbury home and closed on it January 3rd, which just might have been the first home closed in Woodbury in 2012 following New Year's Day when title company offices are closed. We have picked up several other buyer's in Woodbury who are preparing to purchase a home this spring, as well as a Woodbury listing that will go on the market later this year.   Combine this with another buyer closing on a home in White Bear Lake in February, and another buyer closing on a home in River Falls on February 3rd. We will be putting on a Minneapolis listing later this winter, placing a Bloomington home on the market by March...
