Government Competition In Housing

Minot Real Estate

The government has had it's hands in the Real Estate business for a long long time. I'll admit that some of it has been good for ethics and public safety but some of it has been intrusive as well. I didn't particularly like this headline in yesterdays Minot Daily News.

Public invited to live on MAFBHousingRealtors in the Minot area have been very fortunate to have the Minot Air Force Base just 12 miles away. Until very recently they have always been short of housing, creating a steady demand for housing here in the BIG city.

About a year ago the housing on base was turned over to a private company. Housing on the base was built, and built, and built until now they have a surplus and are inviting non-active duty folks to come out and live on base. Not a good thing for our private sector in Minot, adding to the glut of homes we have from over building our oil boom gone bust.

However I look at it as who wants to invite their friends over so they can get a full cavity search at the gate before coming over for dinner?

Pressure treated lumber, some times referred to as "green treated" lumber is not the same as maintenance free decking. Treated lumber generally does not need to be painted or stained for up to a year but the main purpose of it being "… more

Bob… Bruce… Nothing Alike!

Sun Arise!

The sun has been getting a little lazy these days and waking us up around 7:00AM instead of the 5:30AM awaking we were getting just a month ago. I captured this sunrise on Friday once I got to the office. I'm glad most of the color came through on… more
