Market trends in Arden Hills homesReal estate market data in Arden Hills MN by Joel Friday of Keller Williams Classic RealtyWe have seen the market sky rocket from 2000-2006. Then we experienced the depths of a market crash which hit us head on in 2007 and continued through 2011. So what are prices doing now? First off let me say that the normal or expected rate of increase in a stable market is 4% a year. With that being said, here is the chart for Arden Hills as compared to the entire Twin City region for the past 5 years. As you can see, the market is on a steady upward curve over this time frame, although Arden Hills went way up and back down again since the low in March 2012. 55112 is seeing a 11.9% growth over the past year to $282,000, which double the low point. So how does this...

Mr. Paulson was recently quoted as stating "The housing market has bottomed. It's not too late to get involved. I still think buying a home is the best investment any individual can make. Affordability is still at an all-time high" Even though rates are moving up a little, don't worry! Anything under 6% is still fantastic and with prices still not at the peak of 2006, now is still a great time to buy a home. Paulson continued by saying, "Buy a home, and if you can, buy a second home." This was the man who basically predicted the 2007 housing crash and made a fortune because of it.  Let's take his advice!

My head turned as I drove past the striking St. Katherine Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Arden Hills when I was out showing houses yesterday. One of only two Ukranian Orthodox parishes in Minnesota according to the website of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, St. Katherine's celebrated its 60th anniversary last year. Its current structure was built in 1996. Although I know it's there, it always surprises me when I see this distinctive Russian church in Minnesota where this style of church architecture is rare... after all, the Twin Cities have been jokingly called the Vatican of the Lutheran Church so our dominant style of church architecture is very different. With 36.7% of Minnesotans of German ancestry, 17.2% Norwegian and 9.9% Swedish it isn't surprising that 6 of 10 Minnesota...

Perhaps the most popular method of financing today in Arden Hills is through the use of FHA loans. This federal program originated back in the 1930’s to help with a similar situation we have today when home foreclosures were growing rapidly. FHA loans have many advantageous guidelines for both the MN first time home buyer as well as the homeowner who is selling one home to buy another. While the years of the zero down payment loans have gone away for most of us, Arden Hills FHA mortgages offer the smallest down payments available in Minnesota. With a smaller down payment along with the seller paying much of the buyer's closing costs today allows you to get in for a much more reasonable entry cost. The small down payments required by FHA is perhaps the biggest reason why so many Arden Hi...

One increasingly common mortgage option in Arden Hills for home buyers is available through the VA. This type of mortgage financing has increased by about twenty per cent over the last couple of years due in part to the sheer number of our returning veterans. Additionally with the loss of other options for zero down payment loans in Minnesota, the VA offers a benefit that offers eligible buyers a unique opportunity to buy their home with no down payment. Arden Hills VA Loans: Not Just For First Time Home Buyers Many veteran home buyers misunderstand the fact that they may use their VA eligibility benefit more than once. As a result veteran buyers do not necessarily need to be a first time user in order to get VA loans with zero down payment. This can be a great solution for current home...
