Busy. That seems to be the most commonly used adjective on the Iron Range this spring. I talk to lenders, appraisers, home inspectors, contractors and others and everyone is busy. If Ed McMahon were to ask, “How busy are you?” I’d reply, “Very busy. In fact I am too busy to write this blog.” (But Marcy said I should come up with something…)
I have said it before, but interest rates are still favorable, local home inventory in most price ranges is good, and the mining industry is flourishing; so everyone is busy. This means long days for us, and for potential buyers and sellers it means it is time for you, too, to “Get Busy!” It is time for you to call one of our Johnson Hometown Realty experts for information about what is available for purchase, or for a free, confidential, no obligation market analysis to help you ascertain what your property is worth in today’s market. We are busy, but we are never too busy to help you with any real estate need!!

Call your Johnson Hometown Realty Expert to view these or any other homes for sale in the area. 218-263-4411.
We think the sign on our office door is kind of clever, but we take it very seriously. “Always Open” means that we are available when you need us. We realize not everyone has the same schedule and that you may need to see a house, list some property, or simply ask a real estate-related question in the evening, during a weekend, or on a holiday. That is why we do everything we possibly can do to be available when you need help.
“Not Always Here” refers to the fact that there are times when everyone is out working, or home for the evening, or somewhere living life. That is why the office number (which is ALWAYS monitored) is on our door and each of our cell numbers is on our business card. If you call, text, or e mail any one of us, we will answer or get back to you very quickly.
At Johnson Hometown Realty, we realize that real estate transactions are big deals to everyone involved so we treat each one that way. And we know that real estate questions can be very important and time-sensitive so we will answer them promptly. Stop by and visit us anytime. We are’ Not always here”, but we are “Always Open” to help you in any way we can.

Another recent sold property with a buyer taking advantage of 1st Time Home Buyer benefits!
As of today, March 31, we are already 1/4 of the way through 2018. From a weather perspective, it is hard to call this a great year so far, but from a real estate point of view, it has been terrific!! Inventory in just about all areas and price ranges is solid. Interest rates are up a bit, but still favorable (See our most recent Blog post.) And buyers are active in most all segments of the market.
Following are some numbers from selected areas as of the end of March.
City # listed # sold since 1/1/18
Hibbing 81 28
Chisholm 23 11
Mt. Iron/Buhl 13 7
Virginia 45 21
Aurora/HL/Biwabik 39 12
Waterfront residential – Currently listed – 229 (All areas) Sold since 1/1/18 – 24.
These are strong numbers indicating high real estate activity for this area during this time of year, and things are likely to pick up dramatically as the weather warms up. What these numbers mean for local sellers is this: “Don’t miss out! If you have something to sell, get it listed today!!” For help, for answers to your questions, and/or to list real estate of any kind, contact one of our Johnson Hometown Realty experts today!! 218-263-4411.
