If you have been riding around town looking at potential homes, you have likely encountered a common phenomena. You either find a fabulous place that is just out of your price range or you find an affordable home in a great neighborhood that needs some work. Not, oh, we can paint the walls and put down new carpet kind of work. No, this place needs some, can someone give me a sledgehammer and let me knock down two walls kind of work. Thankfully, the FHA 203k Loan specializes in that exact kind of loan. Not a Purchase Loan and Not a Construction LoanThe FHA 203k is not a purchase loan nor a construction loan; it is both. FHA will allow people to borrow enough money to buy the home AND add enough to the loan in order to make major repairs. The loan does not allow extravagant expenditure...

In my last blog, (Part 1),  I showed the main level of a home I had the opportunity to not only stage but also to pick out everything.  Flooring, paint, lighting, tile, cabinets and vanities. It was such a fun project and I love how it turned out.  So here are the before and after photos of the upstairs and lower level:   The kids bathroom:                The Laundry Room:            One of the Kid's Bedrooms:            The Master Bedroom:            The Master Bath:              Now let's head down to the basement....it may be a basement but not a dungeon!   The Family Room:           The Bar Area:         The Study Nook:         The Mudroom from the Garage:         So that's most of the rooms of this beautiful home. If you missed the Main Level check it out at:   Main Level Before an...

When the Minneapolis real estate market was red hot over the past couple of years buyers were looking for anything they could to give them an advantage. Inventory was low and buyer demand was high. The best homes sold in days, if not hours, and often times with multiple offers. In this highly competitive situation some buyers were writing letters directly to the seller in an attempt to connect with them on an emotional level. Did it work? Quite often. We had multiple buyer clients that won their dream home by finding a personal connection with the seller. Now, I'm not going to say the sellers sold to our clients for 10's of thousands below other offers, but in a couple cases their response was clear: We like your buyer the best, but we have an offer for more money. If your buyer will ma...

In my last blog I wrote about the 'Stairway to Heaven' which was all about the renovation of a very, very old upstairs Master Bedroom Retreat. You may be wondering what happened on the main level.  Well....Heaven was brought to earth on the main level too! Living Room Before:       Dining Room Before:     And how about this Kitchen Before??? Nice paint color don't you think. And how about all that counter space:                 Family Bathroom Before:         So, with some vision and Home Staging, here is what it became:   Living Room After:     Dining Room After:     And a little bit of a change I think. The Kitchen Now........           And I really love this vision I had for a breakfast nook as well as creating more cabinets and counter space!       Family Bathroom After:       So, t...

You know the song...we all love it. We sing along with Led Zeppelin.   "There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is goldAnd she's buying a stairway to heaven.When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closedWith a word she can get what she came for.Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven."     But would you want to buy this Stairway to Heaven?? Does this stairway give you the impression you are on your way to the Blissful Heaven of your Master Bedroom Suite?     Oh come on.....I dare you. Look at what you will find at the top of the stairs. That perfect 'En Suite' that every buyer wants.        So much space for your towels. So new and fresh!       Turn the corner and look at the great area for your bed, dresser, a work desk and even a nice BRIGHT room to read in.  ...

Before I go into detail about what happened, what you first need to know is my brother is undead and he did not kill himself by jumping off the Ford Bridge in Minneapolis. Which is a strange enough story in itself, and I mentioned it to a seller yesterday as we were discussing the possibilities of putting his home in Roseville on the market in a few weeks. I brought it up only in case I sounded a bit peculiar because I was still struggling with the shocking news of my brother's suicide when the Roseville seller called. I had also just received news that my listing on Old Auburn Road had closed, a home that another real estate agent could not sell so the seller had contacted me to list and sell it. We listed at the same price and it sold, and we closed yesterday with a 2-week all-cash es...

  It's true. Although most of the time with Home Staging it is 'less is more' and you want to'down play the things in the house so the house can be seen',  but there are times where you just have to add a little funk. Once in a while the house either doesn't have much in the way of architectural features or it is a little aaahhhyyyyy...... Boring..... blah.  Don't let your home be a big yawn for the buyer!                                  The house needs to stand out and be remembered by the buyer that walks through the door. And sometimes you need to create that. That is what a Home Stager does. A Home Stager knows when to cut back on the furniture and accessories to let the home speak for itself.            A trained Home Stager also knows when to add accessories to make the home sing...

There are different types of investors with different goals. Some investors buy properties for wholesale purposes and others buy properties to rehab and rent. A third type of investor that I work with are those that are buying properties, rehabbing them and then reselling them for a profit.  Investors provide a great service to the community and a neighborhood. Many times they are taking properties that are extremely distressed that no one else will buy. At times they take properties that have been condemned and an eyesore for the neighborhood, dragging down everyone's values and turns it into an asset for the neighborhood. I love working with investors. Whether it is to assist in the overall vision of the property, assisting with design and color or staging the property to show it in t...
