I asked Peter how he found the house and what they thought of the Wigley House 4 sale blog:
What happened was, we hit Google for “northfield mn real estate” or something similar, found an MLS page with a couple of houses we liked, and I kept saying “I dunno, the Linden street one looks really cool”. Anyway, then I did another search with different terms, and the blog came up, and I looked at it — and immediately IMd my spouse to say “hey, look, there’s a blog for that Linden Street house”.
20:21:39 – Woah, they have a blog!
20:28:15 – I’m sold.
20:28:22 – They love that place, and everything got redone in 2006.
20:28:35 – I have written a polite email asking whether we could come have a look at it tomorrow.
We were already leaning towards “the Linden place” a bit, but the blog was absolutely the hook. We then went out to Perkins to sit around worrying that you’d already sold it.
Peter’s an Ole grad and his mother, Linda Seebach, moved into Mill Stream Commons this summer. I blogged about her and her blog last month. For those of you who follow the comments here on Locally Grown, you may have noticed Peter chiming in on occasion since earlier this summer.
Peter and Jesse will be moving in over the next two weeks so it may be a little bit before they start hanging out at local coffeehouses and watering holes. In the meantime, please join me in welcoming them to Northfield.
