"This would really suck in the Winter..."

One of the most important questions to ask when buying a home in Minnesota is "Can I see myself living here in the Winter?" If a house or property can pass the Winter-in-Minnesota test, you know it's a house or property worth buying.

McClure grins and points to the hill behind her she just climbed (which, from the viewer's perspective, looks little more than a sloped driveway).

"You should live where I do," offered another, "in Michigan."

"Same thoughts in Wisconsin," added a third. Now that the proverbial cat's out of the bag, what other unique home features do we look for or consider here in Minnesota?

Finish the line: "You know you're a Minnesota realtor when..."
