I suggest first reaching out to the agent that listed the house and request that they send you current MLS information. If it's a scam, the agent will not be able to provide you with an MLS # or webpage with additional information. ... more

Heartland is a big dive, with high crime, terrible streets, and overpriced property and lots. I would only recommend it if it's your very very last resort!!

Hi Mack and Happy Independence Day. We all hopefully woke up today with a smile on our face because we are FREE. At least compared to a lot of places on this planet. Thanks for the info. I'm looking at some development opportunities in the NNW part of ND.

Farmers that have been farming their ag land for generations on their very fertile farms are lining up to sign lease agreements with Oil producers because of the royalties they derive. It's almost like a feeding frenzy.

My question and concern is the short and long term impact it will have on their property, the water and the fertility of the soil. Will the Bakken become one big wasteland or will folks be able to continue to farm and work the land and be compatible with oil?

Greg Smith might be able to help you. He is with Main Street Appraisals. I believe he can do a rush appraisal for around $750 or so. I assume there are other appraisers as well that could do a rush, I'm just not sure on their price.

Linda Slocum, CRS, CDPE | Santa Clarita Realtor answered:
Improvements like this are typically a benefit, but it depends on how close your house is to this new park. You'll need to consider the overall impact on the neighborhood as well as on homes adjacent to the park. There should be some sort of planning and negotiation process where the nearby homeowners would have some say as to the layout and operations of this new park, including parking and the use of night lights.

If your house would be impacted by the traffic from this new sports field, then it would have both a positive and a negative impact. The positive impact would the fact that it is walking distance from the home, and would only be a positive if the new buyers had children who used this new sports field. The negative side would be that there would likely be a lot of traffic and parking on the streets adjacent to the field during practices and games, as well as possibly some property damage as people walk over landscaping and leave trash behind. If there are night lights, then you'll need to work with your fellow homeowners to negotiate how late those lights can be used.

Good Day to you from Fargo- as the snow flies and the children play outside - I thought I would take the opportunity to blog a bit-

In regards to overcrowding and teacher ratios- As with many school districts, budgets and a continuous influx of students moving in and about the FM metro area continue to challenge the local schools- we are a growing metro area!!!! All the schools are educationally sound and unique-

Moorhead recently revamped and built a larger elementary school- and closed scattered small nieghborhood schools- giving many more opportunities for students including Spanish immersion classes in the lower grades.( key note here... My eldest children did attend Moorhead nieghborhood schools from 1989-1999)-

Fargo - a long and narrow community has Northside and Southside systems that have also recently been revamped to reflect a simular K-5, 6-8, and future 9-12 system with anew Highschool being built on the far South end of Fargo. Jefferson elementary School in the center of Fargo was recently rebuilt and along with Clara Barton ( A small neighborhood school) you will find that the center of Fargo is a growing community of families remodeling the older historic homes of Fargo along with the downtown area revialization! Lewis and Clark Elementary is also slotted for an upgrade to the cafetria and media areas this year. Carl Ben Eilson Middle school is newly built and along with South High rounds out a neat area school in the Central Southside of Fargo. Far south Elementary schools in Fargo are larger- and yet another school is in the works to be built- this is a growing community! The northside of Fargo mirrors the near south side in the schools with fabulous neighborhood schools and an identical HighSchool- though while the schools and systems are identical- the identities are strong- North is North Spartans and South is Bruins- and most definately the oldtimers will always say if they are from Fargo North or South-- It is a school Spirit thing.( Note -I graduated Morris,MN -My Husband is a Bruins- I do live on the near south side and am active in PTA)

West Fargo is also a growing community with great schools- here is a community that has kept up with the growth- Not long ago- well- 1990- I would have considered them a smaller community option- no longer- though they deffinately have kept their small town charm!

Did I hear that Northern Cass has Laptops for all highschool students?!--I have yet to verify this- But WOW

Looking for a smaller area school- very close in -Dilworth Glydon Felton, Kindred,.....or private-Grace Lutheran Elementary, Oak Grove, Catholic Network, ...

I guess my point is that there is much to choose from- again it is such a personal choice- It is ...All about You, Your Family, Your lifestyle.

This area really does have only good Schools! If moving into this area- a great way to check out the schools may be to check out the PTA Minutes located at the public school web sites- Or Call the PTA President for that area School. I guess that is what I would do or suggest for a client to do.
