What's the Real Estate Buzz in Owatonna?
 What happened to the summer weather?  Boy, our summer has been marked by cooler temps, but the market has been heating up.

owatonna real estate: Attention Sellers - Tempted to Price it High? - Just Not The First 2 Weeks! - 06/17/09 06:59 PM
Attention all home sellers - we want to help you sell your home for the best possible price.  We know you want that, too.  The problem can lie between the realistic "highest price" and the unattainable "highest price".  It's important to pay close attention to the recommendations of your real estate professional if they've done a thorough and complete job of preparing pricing information for you home.  Here's a chart I've used to help sellers understand the importance of pricing properly for the market.  As you can see, we tend to have the most buyer activity during the first 2-3 weeks on the market.  … (0 comments)

What's the Real Estate Buzz in Owatonna?
Things were picking up in April and early May.  The outlook is brighter with increased activity.  It seems that our spring market is about a month behind - just like our spring weather. 
We're predicting that first time home buyers will be the mainstay of this market, along with buyers relocating into Owatonna for their jobs.  According to my lending expert Brenda Bednar (through Advisor's Mortgage) she is taking applications from those two buyer niches.  Property issues are becoming more of a challenge with the increase in foreclosed properties, many of which have deferred … (1 comments)
