Leila, I sold a new construction home in that neighborhood in June. Reasonable prices and great quality through Capstone over there. Have them check that out! :)

The age group varies. This is a very family friendly community from first time home buyers to empty nesters. Great pool and park and tennis area too.

Hi Jennifer-
Our Multiple Listing System tells us if a house has been foreclosed or if it is a pre foreclosure short sale. Please let me know if you would like me to send a list of foreclosed properties in Blaine.

Dear MNhomebuyer,

Blaine was voted one of the top 5 cities to live in a few years ago, and was one of the top 3 fastest growing cities. Regarding traditionally owned homes (not REO/foreclosures), 2012 saw a 14% increase in median sale prices and 2013 saw an additional 12% increase.
The Sanctuary and Quail creek have a combination of new construction homes available and also previously owned homes. Both developments have maintained good market demand and values have been relatively stable with little REO/short sale transactions.
The Lakes also has new construction and previously owned homes for sale. Due to the larger amount of new construction available, the previously owned homes are seeing longer marketing times but overall stable prices.
The Preserve is expected to have the same results as Legacy Creek which sold out very quickly thus this next phase was developed.
I believe the appreciation will continue in these developments. The school districts are strong and more and more shopping, and restaurants are being added.
No one has a crystal ball, but based on historic trends, we will continue to see this growing suburb flourish.

Ms. Vang,
This home is NOT in the Blaine school district, it would be Spring Lake Park High School.

Happy to help,

Brandon Ketz answered:
Blaine is an ever growing community. We have staples here that bring people in from all over The World (National Sports Center Soccer Complex). When home builders are expanding, Blaine is among the most aggressive communities for expansion in the state. There is a very diverse collection of neighborhoods in Blaine. Ranging from: quad-style town-homes, to 2-3 bedroom ranch-style ramblers, all the way up to million dollar plus communities on TPC golf course and in The Lakes area. With the housing market values coming back I see many people gaining over their losses here, and the forecast for the Twin Cities expects to see continued growth (according to the St. Paul Area Association of Realtors).

If you would like more information feel free to give me a shout and we can go over more details.

Hope this helps

Christopher Block answered:
I passed this home up with another couple I was working with in Blaine because it was a short sale, and we saw some other houses that we liked more. That does not mean you should not look at it (we all have different tastes in homes after all).

Says that it is at a "pre-determined price". That should hopefully mean it is a "pre-approved short sale" where the bank has already approved that price. That can drastically reduce the time it takes to close down to only a couple month's. It would need to show better than the pictures, but I don't think it is at MV. I thought the home was just over 200k.

The list agent may be willing to submit a lower offer, or they may just hold out hoping a offer comes in that the bank wants.

We can talk till we are blue in the face, but ultimately my advice is to show the home and see what you think. People don't really buy homes off the internet lol! Go take a look and see if you like it, and if that DOES happen we can talk about market value and how to best proceed with negotiations. That is essentially a Realtor's job, and you don't need to worry about paying us sense the seller/bank does in MN.

We can schedule some showings of other homes in Blaine as well so you have something to compare to. I am available for showings just call or email me!

There are many loan programs available with a down payment of less than 10%. Also, if you are a first time home buyer there are programs that can help with the down payment and closing costs.

If you are planning to buy in Blaine, contact Anoka County Community Action Program at 763-783-4747. Great resources for homebuyers in the north metro area.
