Hello Rick,

If you're wanting to do for sale by owner, you would have to look up a flat fee listing service. The best way to sell your home fast and at a desired price is to work with a top performing agent. So if you choose to work with an agent, they will upload it to the MLS which will then be syndicated to all the big sites like Trulia, Zillow, and

We created UpNest,, for sellers looking to work with a great agent and get the best value possible. With our online marketplace, home sellers can confidentially submit their homes, and multiple top local agents will compete to obtain your listing. Some agents lower their commission rates to stand out, and every agent that submits a proposal is an experienced agent, so it's not the same as working with a low grade discount brokerage.

Good luck selling!

Lenders?? Help me out here, what are the particulars???

Good luck~

I wish you well; it is always wise when one buys property with another party to anticipate the desire to sell. I usually advise my clients to have a legal document drawn to identify what might happen if either party wants to sell or leave the property. In Minnesota, we have a number of ways to make sure you and your partner is the property will be able to leave it or retain it. Liz ... more

You can expect to pay around $25,000 - $30,000 but there were a couple sales in 2010 around $23,000.

When prices are affordable. I will buy. Prices are not aligned with income or rent. It could take 3-4 years to correct.

I have to agree with Craig here. But I'd like to add that there are several other highly desireable lakes in the Alexandria Minnesota area. Some connected to the chain of lakes - some not. And Clayton - in case you weren't aware of it - we also have a ski resort - Andes Tower Hills. ... more
