What is your question??? We know what property but we do not know what you want to know....
and by the way it may help you in your future property search to read the following: It is truly good advice!
Why are you asking US here? And here is my reason for my question to YOU.... if and when you are
interested in buying a property whether condo townhouse or single fam. home, you should, or better yet MUST work with a buyers agent, a Realtor who has a representation agreement with you, you commit to the Realtor and the Realtor commits to YOU, at usually no charge to YOU as Buyers Agents are paid at the closing table by the Sellers side, if the property is listed with a brokerage on the Multiple Listing Service of the area. That way not only will you have one resource, one agent to talk
to and contact, that agent not only finds the right properties for your needs and pocket book but will
also educate you about the market, make appointments and accompany all showings, write your
offer and who will submit to you comparable properties that have recent sold so that you know for sure if the price you are offering on a property is a fair market value or not, the agent will negotiate on your behalf and in your very BEST interest the price and terms of the contract, and follow up along the way with all the various details necessary to lead to a successful closing.
Do not do this on your own!!! If you need a Buyers Agent Recommendation for your Area let me know, I gladly forward some good buyers agents to you for consideration.

As a listing agent, when I sell a home contingent on the buyers selling their home, I require regular reports-every two to four weeks on the marketing activity and the activity in the "back-up" home's marketplace. This allows me as a seller's agent and my clients the sellers visibility into the back-up home's probability of sale.
Ask for this report. It should contain:
1. List of active competition - similar competing homes in the vicinity showing the price, #BR,#BA and # of garage stalls, foundation size and finished square feet as well as the style of the competing homes
2. List of homes sold in the recent past. In your case, you may want to see what has sold in the past 2-3 months. Realize that the market is now coming out of a slow period of (a) holidays and (b) the end of the initial tax credit and implementation of the new tax credit extension thru 4/30/2010
3. Marketing activity since the last report (i.e., showings, open houses, advertising, ...)
4. Overall market statistics -- what is the avg days on market until the home is expected to sell, based on similar home statistics over the past 2-3 months
As with most things, the devil is in the details and we live and die by communication and lack of communication.
I would check out Craigslist Duluth http://duluth.craigslist.org for rental housing... in the Twin Cities it is awesome for most classified ad situations, including rentals, and I can only assume the same for Duluth.... more
