I'm sitting in a Parade of Homes model, not as an agent to try sell it but just hanging out as my photographer takes photos of my staging work. As I sit here I have time to actually look around and take in things that I normally wouldn't see as I am flying around putting beds together and staging the home.     I got to thinking that people coming to view the Parade models are in the same way, not that they are staging and working but there is just so much to see! The beautiful decor, the exquisite architectural features, and at the same time trying to not make eye contact with the builder or agent so that they give you a sales pitch, ha.But I must say look around.....really look around. If you are there for ideas to renovate your home, or update your decor, or perhaps to build a home, r...

An article in a major real estate industry publication today provides us with an introductory profile of Generation Z for its readers.I read this with great interest. Every few years, our industry takes the opportunity to remind us that the real estate consumer community is divided into neat categories that agents and brokers are expected to know.The first good news about Generation Z is its composition. Gen Z real estate customers will be our most diverse sector yet, with 48 percent belonging to racial and ethnic minority groups. These consumers will more closely resemble a more diverse population than ever before.The Generation Z populace is decidedly tech-savvy. For some real estate agents who bemoan technology, the coming of Gen Z may be their biggest challenge.I take some degree of...

What if you really aren't sure if you are going to put your house up for sale? Perhaps you are looking at a potential new job in another area of the city but you aren't sure you will get it. Or you will only sell if you find that perfect house; or maybe you aren't sure if the market is a good one for you right now. You are in a situation where there are so many pieces to the puzzle that you don't know. This does happen and sometimes people get paralyzed thinking about what they should or should not do to their house when things are up in the air. This may help as there are many things you can do now to get your home ready to go on the market that isn't a waste of time.   1) Clean Out Closets     This is a must when you are selling your home and if you are like me, it is actually a must ...

  Exploring the Twin Cities Metro via the Light Rail by Matt Eckholm, guest blogger.With two lines and 36 stations, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro light rail system is a convenient way to get around the city. Though unless you’re regularly taking the train to a variety of places, it’s easy to think of the Blue Line as just the downtown to airport line, or the Green Line as the downtown to downtown line. In reality, those 36 stations offer connections to an incredible array of entertainment, shopping, food, and sights across the Twin Cities.In the second part of this series on the Twin Cities light rail , we’re going to look the Blue Line's South Minneapolis stations and the surrounding areas, including neighborhoods, sights, and destinations. In subsequent weeks we will explore the othe...

Many times when I am in a client's home I notice a few things about the dining room. One of those things is the height that their light fixture is hung above the table. Most of the time it is too high.  In the photo to the right I feel the light is too high but it also is too large for the table. I think many times what happens is when people are moving in or out they clip the light fixture up so they won't hit their heads when the table is gone and then it never gets lowered again. Or people just don't know how to hang it so I'm here to help! A general rule of thumb is that the bottom of the light should be about 30-34 inches above the table. Most table heights are 30" so you are looking at approximately 62" off the floor if your table isn't in the room yet. The dining room light fixtu...

I found the amazing site for things to do with your dog and I am not exaggerating when I say it got me (and my dog and hubby) through the Polar Vortex!   The site is called Sidewalk Dog. The opening sentence on their site is: "Sidewalk Dog Media is a cause-based company with a simple mission: To promote thriving relationships between dogs, their people, and the community we share."   You will find so many things to do with your dog that you didn't know existed. Plus dog friendly malls, hotels, shops and restaurants.  Sidewalk Dog has expanded to Chicago, Denver and Seattle as well.  When you sign up for their newsletter you will get updates on all the dog friendly happenings in town, most of which you won't want to miss. I mean who doesn't want to go to Yappy Hour!! A great place for pu...

This isn't the most fun topic to address, it's a little stinky. Okay really I had to say that! :) But seriously, when you are selling your home you need to address any odors that may be present. This is a tough one because many of us don't smell an odor in our own home. Or we smell it when we first walk in the door but it seems to goes away after a few minutes so we forget about it. If you are selling your home you need to bring in an independent person that will be brutally honest with you. A close friend that will be truthful or better yet a professional Home Stager that will not only kindly address the situation but be able to offer some advice. In my experience there seems to be 3 most common types of odors: 1) Food Odors  These are easy to address and usually a quick fix. If you en...

It's finally summer and with the brutal winter that occurred throughout most of the upper Midwest and beyond, people want to be outside. When working with sellers, one of the things I advise them on during a Home Staging Consultation is to treat almost any outdoor living space as additional square footage. I know it is not counted towards the square footage total in valuing your home, but many buyers gravitate towards the outdoor spaces and you need to give them priority. Whether it is a deck, patio, screened in porch or front porch, they all need to be addressed. With a front porch it is the first thing the buyer sees and it creates such a homey, cozy spot that they can see themselves enjoying quiet time with a cup of tea or a book and watching the world go by.   If it is a back deck o...

How much should you offer on the home you fell in love with?by Kevin Dimmel  Share     Tweet    You’ve spent the last few months looking for a home and now, the only thing that stands between you and having the right to negotiate full ownership of the home of you fell in love with is preparing an offer that will be acceptable to the seller. The purchase and sales agreement iis the first formal communication that leads to the final deal and eventually a closing when it’s time for you to take ownership of the property. The total agreement between buyer and seller combines financial details with overall efforts of both parties geared towards reaching an agreement and working on the steps towards the closing itself. Over the last five years, it’s been a seller’s market, which means that in ...
