What the other agents didn't mention is that the property in the picture is not actually for sale. RealtyTrac is a company that tracks foreclosures and wants to sell you their services. You sign up and pay them a fee and they give you the addresses of foreclosed properties - something you can get free at the Washington County Website and through the Forest Lake Times. As a bonus, they sell your name to local real estate agents so they can call you and try to sign you up. Sounds like fun doesn't it?
There are currently 8 townhouses for sale on the MLS within 1/2 a mile of the property in the photo. They range in price from $55K to $170K. You can let me know if you would like to take a look at any of those.
The property in the picture may or may not come onto the market in the future - I did some research with the Washington County Foreclosure records and couldn't find exactly which property it was, I found two that were foreclosed on Empress Drive that were Unit #2 in the last year and a half, but neither had an auction price that would be similar to what is listed here.
