It really doesn't look like there's any blinds on those windows from the link you posted. Now Kim, I would not be able to live without blinds for my windows. I'd suggest asking this for the manager to see if there's any rooms that has blinds. If not, see if they'd be willing to invest in blinds for the place with you. If you put up blinds, they might be able to take some rent money off for your installation costs by making that apartment more appealing with blinds. Good luck, Kim!

YOu would need to get with an agent who can answer that for specific homes. Each landlord is different and the government has specific guidelines.

If you ask this same question in the Washington DC section instead of in the St. Paul Minnesota section you may have better luck getting an answer. Real estate is local and locally regulated. ... more

here is a great place to find contract for deed homes. credit usually not an issue but you will need around 10% down of the sale price of the property to buy one.

Carolyn Jass answered:
I am a Realtor and I am available to help you find a house and teach you about the buying process. Most of the time my fees are paid for by the person who is selling the house, so it is a good idea to use a licensed Realtor like me to help you and look out for your best interests. Realtors are licensed by the State and must follow laws to help protect the client and must take continuing education classes so they stay current with the laws. Buying a house is usually the biggest purchase you will make, so it is great to have professional help.

I do a lot of teaching about the process and various options. Some buyers also like to attend a first time home buyer’s class. Usually getting pre-qualified for a loan is the first step. If a buyer has a good credit rating, he will pay lower interest. It can take a few months to correct problems with an incorrect credit report. If the buyer’s credit is low, there are steps he can take to improve it.

After the buyer is pre-approved for the loan, we talk about what kind of a house they want and where they want to live. I set up a search of the MLS (Multiple Listing Service – largest source of finding homes- used by Realtors) which will automatically notify you each day of houses you might want to see. If you want to see a house, I will set up an appointment to go see it and I will talk you through the house.

Feel free to contact me:
