The 10 Best of 2022 From Our Twin Cities Home Blog

Top Ten Real Estate Agent Blog Posts

It’s the end of another year, and like mushrooms after a rainfall, ten best lists pop up everywhere. Best movies. Best music. Best books. Best phones. Best laptops. Best recipes. Best kitchen gadgets and on it goes. I love most of them and thought, why not make a list of the ten best from our blog?

With an abundance of great content on the blog this year (I know, shameful self-promotion), it was not easy to choose only ten. So what criteria did I use? The choices address topics that continue to be relevant, add value for the target audience and address questions and concerns about buying and selling real estate we hear from clients.

In the spirit of full disclosure, it was so tricky limiting my selection to ten; I added honorable mentions at the end. Joe wrote some great stuff for Forbes this year, so I included a couple that technically is not from our blog. Ready? Top of 2022 best blog posts coming at you! 

 1. Why I’m Not Making New Year Resolutions

This post was the first article of 2022, and it is just as timely a year later. For those who struggle to keep New Year resolutions, my advice is don’t make them.

6512 Tessman Terrace N Brooklyn Park MN

Just Listed 6512 Tessman Terrace N 

The Minnesota Property Group CEO Joe Houghton just listed this 2015 built rambler at 6512 Tessman Terrace in Brooklyn Park, MN 55445, and it will sell fast. View the 3 Dimensional and Interactive Virtual Tour in this post and call Joe to set up a private tour. 

This Brooklyn Park Rambler feels like new construction. 

Even though 6512 Tessman Terrace was built in 2015, it still feels brand new. The current owners had input in the building process and were forward-thinking in their design and structural selections. Dual-Zone heating is one convenience that is often overlooked when building new construction, and it is expensive to do but luxurious to have. The Kinetico water softener and reverse osmosis system is another significant upgrade that usually gets included in a brand home. 

More upgrades are not always included in new construction 

6512 Tessman Terrace has a multi-zone sprinkler system that also waters the flower beds, plants. The 700 square foot attached garage is insulated, plumbed for gas, and equipped with two high-end insulated garage doors and quiet belt drive garage door openers. The professional landscaping includes paving stones around the house and surrounding the 12x13 patio. The oversized windows have UV film.

WHAT WE LOVE ABOUT THIS HOUSE What have you enjoyed most about this house? Our favorite is the pond and brushy area directly behind our lot. We see some wildlife nearly every day! I love that the laundry room is on the main floor, thus is no need to climb stairs at laundry time. The stairway with its landing and extra-wide size is another favorite. We like the flat front yard AND flat back yard in a walkout house. Everyone is friendly without being intrusive. We love all the bike paths nearby, especially the one to Coon Rapids Dam. Elm Creek Park has a great bike path, too....
