STEVE:  Hi, this is Steve Westmark of Counselor Realty.  Thanks so much for watching my video blog this week.  David Knox, a very well-known person on consumer videos, which is on my website, has a video, “8 Steps to Buying a Home.”  What will a person learn by watching the video on eight steps?

DAVID:  Well, if you’re a first- or second-time buyer or someone who hasn’t purchased in a while, this video will lay out a complete and accurate plan on how you can go through the steps of purchasing a home, everything from house hunting to financing to closing.  So I think it’s a great way to plan your house-hunting process.

STEVE:  So take an opportunity to watch this video at the bottom of this blog.  Click on it and go and watch the “8 Steps to Buying a Home.”  Thanks for coming in, David.

DAVID:  You’re welcome.




STEVE:  Hi.  This is Steve Westmark, Counselor Realty.  Thanks so much for watching my video blog this week.  Many times, we have people in the marketplace that are struggling to be able to purchase.  It may be that they went through a short sale, they went through a foreclosure, or maybe they’re only going to be in the Twin Cities for a year or two.  Or maybe they don’t have the down payment yet to purchase. 

Recently, within the last 12 months, are Northstar MLS system has now began to put online properties or rent.  So if you have a property that you own and you would like myself or a realtor to market that property online, it could be put out on the multiple listings system as a rental, by price, with pictures, and all the information that you can get also that you see from homes that are on sales. 

But the positive thing also for the renters that are out there is that we have one of these instant systems that allow us to send out to you as a new rental comes on the market in your rental range and according to the statistics that you want, if you want at least a three bedroom or if you only need a one bedroom or you have a minimum/maximum rent that you want to pay.  We can set you into a system like that to let you know what’s going on in the marketplace.

It’s a new and creative way that we’ve looked as realtors to try to help our clients in this changing industry that we’ve had over the last several years.  So if you’re interested in finding out more about putting your property on the market for rent if you’re a landlord or if you’re a person that has had certain things going on in yoru life and you can’t purchase right now, give me a call and we’ll show you how we can find rentals for you.  Make it a great day!
