Today, I’ll discuss three key lessons I learned from the housing crisis. To hear more, watch my latest video.

What You Need to Know About Seller Disclosures

When you sell your home, you have to fill out a seller disclosure. The disclosure is a list of everything you know about the home. Surprisingly, I get a lot of questions about how to fill disclosures out. For example, people ask if they need to disclose that they repaired the furnace three years ago. To learn more about how to fill out a disclosure, watch this short video.

Should You List Your Home During the Holidays?

This time of year, the big question I always get is, “Erik, should I list my home now or wait until spring?” Today I want to share with you 10 historical trends that prove that listing now might be your best option. For example, some people are looking to buy before the end of the year for tax reasons. This is a reason people tend to forget about, but there are buyers out there who need to spend money for tax purposes.

How Do Commission Payments Work in Minnesota?

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about commissions lately— like what they are, who pays for them, etc. So today, I want to answer these questions for you. In the state of Minnesota, the seller always pays the commission. As a buyer, you don’t pay any commission fees. It might seem like sellers are getting a raw deal here, but that’s not the case. To find out why and learn everything else you need to know about commissions, watch my latest video.
