MinotHomes.com is the BHGRE Watne Group website that brings you all the listings (residential, commercial, land, multi-family, mobile homes, and investment opportunities) in the Minot Multiple Listing Service. You can search for properties at home from your computer or on the go with a tablet or smartphone.

“It is as easy as 1,2,3… we do not capture names … you come to us when you are ready.”

You can save searches to be automatically notified when new properties come on the market matching your needs, and you can tell a friend (or spouse, or parent...really anyone with email) about the property so they know what you're looking at. Get a feel for what payments might look like with our free mortgage calculator!
