This is a late response so I hope I have reached you in time! You have the right to sell your home prior to the end of the redemption period. It all comes down to the numbers to see how much equity you have, and what you would be able to walk away with.

Here is a link from the MN Homeownership Center, a Minnesota non-profit which offers services to people who are dealing with foreclosure. --

Feel free to contact me through my Trulia profile, and I can do additional research on your specific situation.

I think it depends on the type o look you are going for. Tile could look great for your main level. It sounds like it would be the most practical since you have a pool too. ... more

I work with the law firm Markve & Zweifel. They're located on the north side of the twin cities in Maple Grove. They will offer you a FREE initial consultation to determine if a short sale is the best option for you based on several criteria. They will also thoroughly explain all of the financial and legal ramifications surrounding a short sale - and what your best options are for moving forward. They prefer to have the customer contact them through one of their affiliated agents. Let me know if you'd like to explore this option. ... more

Why are you looking at a trade? That would be my first question, and if it is because you believe there is negative equity in the house a trade partner would not want that type of deal either.

But my fellow realtors are correct. We have been in a aggressive seller's market for quite some time, and it is almost impossible to find a single family home under $150,000 in Coon Rapids right now. What I can do is break-down the steps you should take to still achieve your goal.

1) Interview a couple realtors who will perform a market analysis of your home. The first step is deciding if you are able to sell your home now. I can give you a general CMA without previewing the home just email me your address. There is no need for me to come out to the property unless we know your home is in the ballpark of having enough equity to sell.

2) From there I will give you all the options available to still be able to purchase a $250,000 home. We will walk-thru every scenario and figure out together which is the best one for you.

This may seem overwhelming or challenging right now to you, but enlisting the help of a Realtor will make everything much easier! I look forward to hearing from you.

Terry Farnsworth answered:
You can sell anything quickly if you are willing to drop the price low enough. As stated below, simply price your property enough below market value and it will sell this morning. Whether you want, or have enough flexibility/equity in your home to do so - is a whole different question.

Investors are not in business to be "fair" - they are in business to make a profit. They are, or should be, laser-focused on the bottom line and if the deal does not make sense to them - they aren't going to waste their time on it.

Calling a "We pay cash for houses" sign on the side of the road is going to end in an offer for well below what you are looking for.

If it were as easy as calling a sign, then getting your home sold the next day for a "fair" price at or above market value - we'd all be out of business.

Huh well Russ brought this question back to life.

Dear Trulia people wherever you are. It is annoying when people reply to our posts and none of us get notified!

Well considering this was pretty much a year ago I am guessing you either found a rent to own property or are still renting. At this point you can buy this fall traditionally and it will be just fine. I am helping a buyer right now out of the 3-year foreclosure rule and it was a piece of cake.

And just FYI to contact me you just hit the icon next to this post or look me up. I will also make it a little easier just in case you are still looking to buy.

I concur with many of the previous answers. 670 is good, but 680 would open up some avenues for you. There are some occasions which don't require satisfying the judgement, but those are rare so your best bet is to deal with the judgement first. ... more

Susan, and investor is usually looking for what they would consider a good deal.
Could the investor be scamming you? Yes that is possible...because they are looking for someone in a situation where they are in a hurry to get out of their property.

It is in your best interests to be represented by an Agent that you choose for your self, not one recommended by or working with the investor. Maybe try an internet search for agents in your zip code area. I wish you well.
