I own and manage numerous properties in Apple Valley. I live in Apple Valley and have owned rental properties for nearly 30 years. I own single family homes, town homes, duplexes, and have owned commercial properties as well. .You should select your agent, someone that has real experience in what you are looking to do, and not just creating another sale. Investment real estate is quite dfferent than finding a home. I would be happy to talk with you if you would like.You can contact me at your convience at 612-386-8570. Otherwise you can emai me at: email@example.com
Before getting too excited about buying investment property at this time, you may want to hop on CraigsList and see what you will be competing with as far as rent rates and the amount of property that is available. Great time to buy and owner occupy, bit dicey to buy and rent out.
Good Luck -
I hope by now you have found a fantastic agent to guide you through purchasing rental properties. It is a very exciting time to invest in real estate! If you have any questions or still need some guidance, I would love to help. I do specialize in the south Metro area and work with many investors.
Best of luck!

This is a great time to consider investing in income property, but the wrong investment at the wrong price and terms, or an investment based on inflated expectations can happen any time to anyone who fails to do the research.
I spend most of my time helping folks fire their landlords, so you will probably be looking elsewhere for someone to guide you through your entry into income producing real estate. I understand the evaluation process, but think you need someone with some first hand experience with owning and managing income property. Given the list of folks who have raised their hands, and if I were not in the business and a competitor, I would start by contacting Brenda Hanson who has responded to your question. She is an Apple Valley expert, and she has traveled down the exact same road that you are about to navigate.
I know Apple Valley, and I can help a seasoned investor find great property, but I think you need someone who is better at getting folks started in the game.

I would love to help out in any way I can. I have been a Realtor in the south metro (office is in Apple Valley) for over 6 years.

I too have been finding very good values for rentals in townhouses. I just wrote a story on my blog about recent places I've purchased in Apple Valley & Rosemount here - http://www.dakotacountyproperties.com/want-8-returns-investm
Beyond finding out about who can help you find a place it would be good to find a Realtor that can advise you about tenant screening, application processes, finding renters and leases.
If you'd like to hear about what I've done let me know.
