Selling Your North Saint Paul Home Today

If you are selling a home in North Saint Paul today you will find it can be quite a challenge, especially with all the competition from nearby foreclosures and short sales. Market values have been reduced in part because of the low sales prices offered by banks who need to unload their inventory of their real estate owned. Roughly half of the closed sales in the curret MN real estate market has resulted from "traditional" home sellers. Are you looking for help to sell your home listing in North Saint Paul?

Using a North Saint Paul Real Estate Agent

Perhaps it has never been more important to use a North Saint Paul real estate agent who studies recent trends in Twin Cities market values. When we come out and visit your property to complete a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA), we will compare all of the features and benefits of your property to the competing homes for sale in the area. We need to look at all of the properties that have sold within the past few months to analyze what the actual sales prices have been. By doing this we will be able to estimate what price a buyer might pay for your house within a reasonable period of time.

One of the challenges for many sellers today is in trying to get enough for their house to pay off the their current mortgage. If a home seller owes more on the mortgages for their home than what we can sell it for we will either need to discuss paying the mortgages down, attempting a short sale, or listing the current home for rent and in order to move to another home. With the rapidly rising rents in today's market home sellers are often finding that they can cover all of the expenses for the home through their renter's income.

Lenders have specific guidelines for those North Saint Paul sellers who have decided rent out their home in order to buy another. Depending on the equity that you have in your home, a mortgage lender may or may not consider the rental income you receive when they qualify you for the new mortgage. The only way to know this is to call a lender to get preapproved.

Once we have a chance to meet to discuss the value of your current home it is important that you go through the process of getting prequalified for a home loan. Your mortgage lender can help you decide which of the options are best whether renting or selling your current house. The process of mortgage preapproval is free, and if you decide not to proceed, there is no obligation to borrow money. A good lender will be able to examine all of the options available to you such as MN FHA loans, Conventional, VA, or other types of mortgage loans.
