"Buying a house for the first time couldn't have been easier. You were so helpful and hard-working and would drop anything to make it happen for us! We appreciated all the communication throughout the entire process. Sometimes it’s overlooked but good communication made this so easy."
NATHAN & AMANDA | JULY 2022
"Thank you, David, for doing so much for me. I am already dreaming of decorating my new place. Thank you for being diligent in helping me find the right home, and thanks for answering my questions quickly. I love the way you handled the entire process."

Closed Sales and New Listings Slip in June
In June, closed sales of homes declined by nearly 14% compared to a year ago, with a total of 9,208 properties sold across the state. New listings were down 6.4% year-over-year even as the total number of homes for sale increased 8.2% to 12,298 properties.
Overall housing inventory increased significantly, up 21.4% over last June to 1.7 months’ supply of homes on the market. Despite softening activity relative to last year, consumer demand drove the median sales price up 6.2% to $345,000, and the average price increased 9% to $401,319. Sellers were still receiving an average of 102.5% of their asking price, although this marks a slight 0.7% decline compared to June of last year.

Spring is the season of new growth. After a long, icy winter, there’s nothing quite like the warmth of the springtime sun. Here in Minnesota, we sometimes find it hard to predict exactly when spring will kick into full gear (think blizzards in April), but when it does arrive, we welcome it with open arms.
Spring is also when we prepare our yards for gardening and outside entertainment, perform quarterly maintenance, and freshen up the inside of our homes.
This list might look exhaustive (and exhausting), but not all the items will apply to every home.
Phew! Once all this hard work is done, your final task is to pull out a lawn chair, settle in with a tall glass of iced tea, and soak in all the fresh spring air that you can.
In this little video, Brianna K does a great job demonstrating final house cleaning tips to be sure your home shines for showings. Too big of a job for you at the moment? Need help with lining up a cleaning service? I can help you with that. If you are thinking of buying or selling a home, or both, please contact me. I'd love to be your REALTOR®.
When buying or selling a home, it's important to understand the market and gain helpful insights to help you achieve the best results.
