This is not at all related to Minneapolis Loft living but I liked concept and  pictures.  Enjoy.

The Galfond Residence by Turett Collaborative Architects:

“TCA has had a lot of experience connecting smaller apartments together into a seamless whole, but this adventurous client requested something we’d never seen before. In a newly constructed multi-residential development, in the East Village of NYC, TCA had the opportunity to meet a unique client’s desire to combine two penthouse condos… with a helical slide.”

Buying a Condo or Loft Downtown Minneapolis

How to Buy a Condo or Loft Downtown Mpls

Flour Sack Flats Minneapolis, St. Anthony Main Condo

Search Minneapolis Condos and Lofts Here

Many folks interested in buying real estate downtown Minneapolis, first-time home buyers especially, sometimes lack the knowledge to determine what they can afford when it comes to buying a condo or loft and often inquire how the purchasing process actually works.  Below is a list of steps outlining how the condo purchase process works:

  1. Start by getting pre-approved by your bank or a mortgage broker. Understanding what you can afford gives you a starting point and a price window to search within.                                                                      
  2. Find a Realtor that specializes in the market of real estate you are interested and be sure it is someone you feel comfortable with. I usually suggest to line up an interview to make sure it is the right fit.  Talk to your Realtor about what you are and are not looking for in a property. You DO NOT want to run around to every condo on the market in Minneapolis.  Depending what you are looking for your realtor should help you narrow down what fits your needs and wants without spinning your wheels.  I always offer our “Buyers Concierge” which lists questions that will help identify what it is the buyer is looking for.  DRG Buyers_Concierge (Updated 11-2009) Email this form to me at Mike@DrgMpls.com or fax to 612-777-8020 (Attention: Mike Seebinger), if you are interested in interviewing myself for the position of your Realtor.
  3. Now the shopping begins! This is the fun part.  Once you’ve been pre-approved for a loan and you have found your downtown condo specialist, your realtor will then begin showing you properties within your parameters.
  4. Take notes while on the showings. Think about the location (1st and foremost), building amenities, take into consideration future value, the unit floor plan and of course the list price.
  5. Once you’ve found the condo or loft you would like to buy have you Realtor run a market analysis to determine what the condo or loft is actually worth. 
  6. Assuming the numbers from the market analysis look good “let’s make an offer”!  Your Realtor should now go through the offer paperwork, known as the Purchase Agreement, and explain the contract in detail.  If you had any unanswered questions going into the offer process this will be a good time to get them answered.  If you still have questions you can always have a lawyer review it as well.
  7. Your downtown Minneapolis Realtor will then submit the offer to the Listing (Selling) agent who will then contact the seller to review the offer and the negotiations begin.
  8. At the point where the buyer and seller have come to an agreement regarding the price and conditions the deal is now legally binding unless there are other conditions written into the contract.
  9. Typically the buyer will now schedule their inspection and next the appraisal.  The Seller will also give the buyers the condo documents containing the rules, regulations, by-laws, articles of incorporation and budget.  The buyer will have 10 days to review and rescind their offer if anything in the documents does not sit well with the buyer (pet limits in condos, unhealthy looking budget, ect.)
  10. After your loan has final approval and all contingencies are removed the buyers have the right to a final walkthrough of the property to insure that everything is the way the contract stated (bank deals can be different in this regard).
  11. Closing Time!!  It is time to move. The buyer is allowed occumpancy after the buyer and seller meet with their respective title company or lawyers to exchange the property keys for payment. The title of the property is then switched over from the seller to the buyer and the buyer is then given entry and ownership to the property.   

Buying a condo or loft downtown Minneapolis is an exciting process. It can also be a stressful and complicated process so it’s important to hire a Realtor you are comfortable with and trust.  As you know, buying real estate is one of the largest investments you will make.

I would love the opportunity to sit down and answer your questions.  If you are considering buying or renting downtown Minnepaolis please contact me with time and phone number or email most convenient to reach you.  Feel free to also fill out the form on right hand side of this page. 

Designer Loft Available in the 801 Washington Lofts; by Rehkamp Larson Architects, Mark Larson, AIA and Will Spencer

Recently I had the opportunity to preview a new listing in the 801 Washington building in Minneapolis’ North Loop neighborhood with a client of mine.  I was quite impressed with the level of design and want to get the word out that this home is available for sale currently at the price of $449,900. **Request More Information or a Tour of this Property**

“The renovation of this downtown Minneapolis loft began as an effort to bring warmth, refinement, storage/display space for art, books and wine collections and better acoustic separation to a raw, drafty space located in the original loading dock area of the building.”

“A modern gas fireplace, clad in steel plate and wood slats, was added against an exposed concrete block wall with a 12’ long rolling steel book shelf below.  Tall mahogany shelving frames the glass garage door to the public courtyard and balconies were added to bring warmth and function to the space at its edges.  The kitchen, contained in the original brick elevator shaft, was extended and refinished with high gloss car lacquer, steel countertops, new lighting and a wood slatted island with a translucent resin top.  The resulting space is a testament to the creative process and the collaboration of client, architect and craftspeople.”

“WE LOVE MINNEAPOLIS”

Who Is Saying It is Time To Buy a Home? EVERYONE!

Who Is Saying It is Time To Buy a Home? EVERYONE!

by The KCM Crew on September 21, 2010

Enough with the doom and gloom about homeownership.” – WSJ 9/16/2010

WOW! If that quote was attributed to the National Association of Realtors or the National Association of Home Builders, it would have been quickly dismissed. However, it was the Wall Street Journal that was calling for the end of the ‘doom and gloom’ talk surrounding real estate.

We are finally seeing a powerful backlash to all the recent claims that homeownership should never have been part of the American Dream. It is about time!

We have been posting on the financial advantages and the other non-financial benefits of homeownership for over a year. We must admit that, at times, we felt very lonely. It now seems that we are part of an ever growing army of believers preaching the advantages and opportunities available in today’s real estate market. Who have joined this cause? Let’s name a few.

The Wall Street Journal

In an article last week, 10 Reasons To Buy a Home, Brett Arends reported:

Sure, maybe there’s more pain to come in the housing market. But when Time magazine starts running covers that declare “Owning a home may no longer make economic sense,” it’s time to say: Enough is enough.

He then posted 10 reasons to buy a home today:

  1. You can get a good deal.
  2. Mortgages are cheap.
  3. You can save on taxes.
  4. It will be yours.
  5. You’ll get a better home.
  6. It offers some inflation protection.
  7. It’s risk capital.
  8. It’s forced savings.
  9. There is a lot to choose from.
  10. Sooner or later, the market will clear.

The Nation’s Real Estate Pricing Expert

Karl E. Case is a professor emeritus of economics at Wellesley. Professor Case is also co-creator of Standard & Poor’s Case-Shiller House Price Index and is recognized as the one of the foremost authorities on real estate today. In a New York Times op-ed piece earlier this month titled, A Dream House After All, he said:

I have never quite understood what the American dream really means when it comes to housing. For some people, it means having a solid and fairly safe long-term investment that is coupled with the satisfaction of owning the house they live in. That dream is still alive.

Others, however, think the American dream is owning property that appreciates by 30 percent a year, making a house into a vehicle for paying bills. But those kinds of dreams have become nightmares for the millions of foreclosed property owners who have found themselves sliding toward bankruptcy.

But for people with a more realistic version of the American dream, buying a house now can make a lot of sense.

The Wealthy

The only segments of the housing market that are showing sales growth are the price points over $1 million. That market is up 6.1 % in the second quarter of this year vs. the second quarter last year. A recent survey showed that over 30% affluent buyers are planning to either build/buy a new primary residence or a second/vacation home in the next twelve months. It appears the wealthy believe now is the time to buy!

Everybody Else

Fannie Mae just released their National Housing Survey. The survey reported:

  • 82% of respondents consider homeownership important to the economy, up two points from January.
  • 70% of respondents think it is a good time to buy a house (of which 36% think it is a very good time to buy), up six points from January. This is also four points higher than the 2003 survey – well before home prices peaked – when 66 % said it was a good time.

Bottom Line

Our iconic financial newspaper, our nation’s real estate pricing expert, the wealthiest people in the country and 70% of everyone else think now is the time to buy a home. It probably makes sense to listen to them.

Downtown Minneapolis Tax Credit Activity ‘Wrap Up’

Well it was a wild ride!  The spring market is typically a busy time of year anyway but at DRG we have seen a significant increase in sales downtown Minneapolis over the last few months as folks rushed to beat the April 30th tax credit deadline.  FHA has been a priority for many first time home buyers this year.  After FHA did away with ‘spot approval’ for condo projects on February 2 many of these first time home buyers were subsequently looking only in buildings with full FHA approval.  This has limited those buyers only looking  to put down the minimum 3.5% as required by FHA but the good news is that most of remaining new construction projects downtown have at this point obtained FHA approval and the previously referred to glut is now arguably close to being wrapped up as FHA buyers have been funneled into the handful of FHA approved buildings downtown.

NEW CONTRUCTION CLOSE OUT UPDATE: The latest condo project to sell their last developer held unit was the SOHO Lofts, a live/work concept above 3 levels of commercial condo space. Master Development just placed their final unit into escrow this week. In addition, the Herschel Lofts are also down to their last 3 units out of 47.

Pending/Sold Update 2010

1 Bedrooms Closed: 40
1 Bedrooms Pending: 44
Average Sales Price (not including pending sales): $192,685

2 Bedrooms Closed: 71
2 Bedrooms Pending: 52
Average Sales Price (not including pending sales): $344,085

3 Bedrooms and Larger Closed: 20
3 Bedrooms and Larger Pending: 10
Average Sales Price (not including pending sales): $637,028

These statistics are interesting but not always the best way to gauge the market trends as there are many factors not outlined in the breakdown, such as units that were sold in foreclosure, short sales and any ‘fire sale’ developer held inventory that may throw the numbers off. In addition, stay tuned for the true spring market sales statistics as the current pendings turn into solds over the next 60 days or so.  Interest rates are still low, there are some excellent deals downtown right now and some exciting developements surrounding the North Loop/Twins Stadium.  We should continue to see some steady absorption this summer.  If you would like a more accurate breakdown for your Condo/Loft or Town Home please contact me with your address and I will proved similar data more specific to your home.

Downtown Minneapolis Home Owners are off to a Bullish Start for the Month of February

Downtown Minneapolis home owners are off to a bullish start for the month of February with a 37.1% increase in condo/home listings.  In February, 2009 there were 97 homes listed downtown compared to the 133 this past February.  Overall new listings are actually down year to date by -5.7% due to a slow January.  I suppose it is all about timing.  The Twins have their opening day only weeks away and there has been a real buzz downtown so the spike is not surprising.

The month of February had a decrease in sales of -12.9% compared to the previous year but the average sales price has jumped 28% from $250,000 to $320,000. There are some interesting things going on and I expect a busy 2nd quarter. MAR has provided some helpful statistics through their monthly market update referred to as ‘The 100′. 

The link below will take you to Hennepin county’s stats. If you would like up to date market statisitics for your neighborhood or are just interested in what your home is worth contact me and I am happy to run numbers!
