I've been helping buyers and sellers in the Black Hills with their real estate needs since 1992. Call me with your questions at 877-552-8878 (toll free).
A couple years ago (ok, maybe several years ago) I learned the Scouts oath.  I think that was what it was called.  I didn't make it far in Boy Scouts, but I did learn the following and recite it almost daily. A Scout is: Trustworthy Loyal Helpful Friendly Courteous Kind Obedient Cheerful Thrifty ...
It looks like a few more homes went under contract this week.   A sign of better weather coupled with an improved economy?  Only a few more days to take advantage of the $8000 buyer credit, don't wait too long! PRICE RANGE ACTIVE PENDING TOTAL $1-$79,999 43 14 57 $80,000-$99,999 39 18 57 $100,000...
I just had a scam happen to me on Craigslist.  One of my listings was posted as a rental.  The contact person informed potential renters that the sellers were in Africa, and would rent it for only $700 (a house priced at $174,900). While it took 3 days for Craigslist to finally take it off their ...
Sales continue to increase, however I am unsure if they are due to the Cash Home Buying incentive or just the spring desire to purchase.  We'll know more in the coming weeks.  Look at the sales under $200,000, it's almost a sellers market in those price ranges. PRICE RANGE ACTIVE PENDING TOTAL %P...
Snow is in the forecast again (this is getting old), so I decided to do some spring cleaning.  As I go through my office drawers, I am reminded of how much things have changed in the past few years.  I need a new Palm Pilot - does Sears still sell them? I found a roll of film- not sure what I sho...
I will be working for a few months in Ft Wayne, IN and would like to know if there are any runners lurking about this site.  I've been trying to find some trails or running paths, but haven't had much luck so far.  Any suggestions appreciated!
While waiting for the rest of the family to get ready for church this morning, I thought I would see if I can post a blog from my Blackberry. I'm sitting in a very small North Dakota town (population less than 20) to go to a hundred year old church. The temperature is mid 40's, and the sun is shi...
There are bound to be lots of people traveling this weekend, and if you haven't had a chance to visit http://www.safetravelusa.com/ you may want to have a look.  I use it almost every time I head out the door!  Have a great weekend everyone!  
The real estate market in the Black Hills is up about 10% over the past couple weeks.  I'm sure part of that is due to the spring weather we have been experiencing.  If you have any questions on analysing the following information, give me a call!   PRICE RANGE ACTIVE PENDING TOTAL $1-$79,999 35 ...
The market appears to be picking up quite well.  There is a 13% increase in the number of homes pending this week as compared to last week.  Interest rates are still very low and there is time to take advantage of the $8000 credit.  Call me to view any home you see in the Black Hills area. PRICE ...
