Meet Minnesota’s Exclusive Home Buyer Agents

Buyers Real Estate Group is a Minneapolis-based real estate agency focusing on the Greater Minneapolis / St Paul area. We lead the industry by having Real Estate Agents who exclusively represent Home Buyers. Let us help you find the right house today!

When you work with Buyers Real Estate Group, you have an Exclusive Buyer Agent. We have been exclusvely representing home buyers for 22+ years and our agents have an average of 15 years representing buyers in Minnesota. That means we represent the best interests of home buyers at all times. We never represent the seller. We specialize in representing home buyers in the Minneapolis / St Paul area.

We are professional, licensed real estate agents that can show properties to a home buyer in the Twin Cities without the possibility of representing the seller side of the table at the same time. Few other real estate agents can say they help you avoid dual agency!

So if you’re looking for a townhouse, condo, single family home or investment, please give us a call at 612-247-0240.

If you’d like to request a private meeting with an experienced realtor to discuss your situation call 612-247-0240 to get that set up at a time that works for you. We are happy to meet to discuss how we can support your home buying plans better than any other realtors!

New Mortgage Tip #4 – be realistic about a budget and the life you enjoy

Happy to share great advice from House Logic on getting a mortgage.

Tip #4 – be realistic about a budget and the life you enjoy

Track your spending monthly, so you really know how much you spend. Factor fun into your future when deciding which mortgage offer is the best fit. “Two years into your home purchase, you want to be happy you did it,” says Jacobin. “You don’t want to be mortgage poor.”

New Mortgage Tip #5 – read the paperwork

Happy to share great advice from House Logic on getting a mortgage.

Tip #5 – read the paperwork

Watch for these docs.

  1. The loan estimate will come first. Here are some key things to look for:
  • The APR (see No. 2 above)
  • The interest rate
  • The monthly payment
  • The loan terms, such as a 30-year or 15-year mortgage, adjustable rate or fixed
  • The total cost of the loan
  • Cash amount you’ll need at closing
  1. The closing document will come at least three days before you close. It should look just like the first document, but instead of estimates it will have final numbers. If you see any increases or additional fees you weren’t expecting, question the lender immediately. Because if it shows even a tenth of a percent interest-rate jump you weren’t expecting (say 4.1% instead of 4%) — and you don’t question it — that could mean a difference of almost $3,700 on a $176,000 mortgage.

Review and compare them. And, most importantly, don’t be afraid to speak up if you spot a surprise.

New Mortgage Tip #3 – don’t fall for marketing gimmicks

Tip #3 – don’t fall for marketing gimmicks

Block out the noise. Shop for your mortgage according to trusted recommendations and reliable reviews, not slick deals that sound too good to be true.

New Mortgage Tip #2 – compare loans correctly

Happy to share great advice from House Logic on getting a mortgage.

Tip #2 – compare loans correctly

Compare loans by the annual percentage rate, or APR, not just by interest rate. Each lender should give you a document aptly named “loan estimate.” The APR will be listed there (if it’s not, you don’t want that lender). The APR combines a home loan’s interest rate with closing costs and other fees like points (which is why it’s usually higher than the interest rate), then converts the overall costs to an annual percentage. This gives you an apples-to-apples comparison so you can understand what you’re paying over the life of the loan.

New Mortgage Tip #1 – find your mortgage before you find your home

Happy to share great advice from House Logic on getting a mortgage.

Tip #1 – find your mortgage before you find your home

Start talking to lenders at least three months — maybe even a year — before you start house hunting. Time-consuming tweaks like paying down debt or improving your credit score can have a dramatic effect on overall mortgage costs.

Get the dirty job clean: How to clean your mattress

HouseLogic is always full of great tips for home owners, seller and buyers. This month we’re going to take a look at their advice for getting the worst jobs done. Maybe you can get a neighbor kid to help before school starts or maybe you can roll up your sleeves and enjoy a job well done. Tip 9…

#9 Sprinkle Your Mattress With Baking Soda
Your mattress needs a springtime refresh, too, but you sure can’t toss it in the washing machine. Cleaning gurus recommend dragging your mattress outside, beating it, and letting the sunshine help freshen it, then dragging it back in. But who has the muscle for that? This is much easier: Use a kitchen strainer to sprinkle baking soda over its surface and let sit for an hour or longer. Longer is better. Then use your vacuum’s upholstery attachment to suck up the odor-absorbing soda.

#8 Boil Your Range Filter
There’s no need to scrub the grease and grime off your range filters. Use a bit of baking soda and your largest pot instead. Set the water to boil, slowly add 1/2 cup of baking soda, and submerge your filters for about five minutes. (Make sure to dump the water somewhere safe. Grease in the drain is even worse than grimy filters.)
