Absolutely! Target is very close by and Rosedale shopping center is about a 5 minutes drive from the Arden Hills area. The area is just an all round convenient location to numerous shops, parks, etc. If you would like some more detailed info, feel free to call me. I work, play, and live in the area.

Hi, Carol!
I guess I'm not sure what you're asking here. This is my take:
1. Your current property is "upside down" in value. You can either attempt a short sale, rent the place out and keep making your payments, let it go in to foreclosure.
2. If you have a mortgage payment that you're currently making on the house and you have a renter in there, it might allow you to get a new mortgage if you have enough for a downpayment. Thing is, in order for the lender to take that in to consideration, you will need to have rented it for at least 6 mos. to a year.
3. If you do a short sale or go in to foreclosure, you will not be able to purchase for a couple of years after the final execution of either.

I know this seems a little overwhelming. You may want to talk to a good agent there just to get some advice and lay your scenarios out in front of you. Couldn't hurt to consult an attorney either.

Good luck!!

They will count student loans even if they are not due. If she has limited income you might be better off financing the home in just your name. You can always add her to the title and when you are married she automatically owns half the house based on a law called spousal interest. ... more

Tis varies a great deal; what is covered, what amenities are available,size and age of the structures are all determining association fees. When new, a common amount is around $125 when exterior maintenance, landscaping, and structure insurance are covered. As the structures age, replacement and issues of weather, etc may make changes. You need to examine this in regard to these factors, look for deferred repairs, what each homeonwer is responsible for according the association documents. You also have to realizxe that if you have your own mowers, clippers, snow removal equipment, etc. there is a cost, too. And, as a townhome dweller, I have to say it is fabulous to hear the scrape of snow removal equipment: brooms. plows., shovels and snuggle deeper into my comfortable bed! Liz, 612-986-4105 ... more

Alex, you are probably unaware, but real estate agents and brokers are not allowed to give tax advice. It is not covered by our license and a serious infraction of state law.

You should seek professional tax advice. ... more

The goal is to first of all prevent buyers from knowing what a realistic price is, and secondly to get buyers to blindly bid against each other. There are four players in this game and three of them are against the buyer -- the seller, the seller's agent, and the buyer's agent. Yes, the buyer's own agent works against the buyer, because there is no commission if there is no sale. There's a saying in Las Vegas: "There's a patsy in every game, and if you don't know who the patsy is, you're it." ... more

Your asking a question that even a year ago may have generated a different answer. My suggestion, be careful on what you decide to do in your home in this current market. Your location, what the market is like in your particular area, what is the price range that the homes are currently selling for. Your doing a wise thing in asking experts to give you advice. My experience tells me that it is hard to recoup an investment like this in our current market. Maybe scale it down a bit. ... more
