PMI is extra insurance that lenders require from most homebuyers who obtain loans that are more than 80 percent of their new home's value.  In other words with less than 20 percent down payment are normally required to pay PMI.  Benefits of PMI PMI plays an important role in the mortgage industry by protecting a lender against loss if the borrower defaults on a loan and by enabling borrowers with less cash to have greater access to home ownership.  With this type of insurance it is possible to buy a home with as little as 3 or 5 percent down payment.  This means you can buy a home sooner without having t...

Why it's important to purchase a home warranty during your real estate transactions.If you are a buyer:1. You can't know everything about the homes that you are buying... you never know what might go wrong.2. Even if you know everything - you can't foresee the future and what might happen.3. If something does happen then you are covered and there won't be any hassles between you and the sellers! If you are a seller: 1. Your home is covered (at no expense) during your listing period. If your home doesn't sell - you don't pay!2. Who knows what'll happen while your home is on the market!!! This saves the headache and expense of fixing it yourself.3. If something does happen after closing, then you are covered! Nobody will be banging down your door asking for repairs and money! Special prom...

Grab those skates.... and let's head outside! The skating rink at Hanke school is open and ready for action! At night you'll see teams playing hockey and young and old enjoying this winter wonderland. You don't like skating? Then bring your sleds! They have some massive fun sledding hills waitng just for you.......and in the cold of it all there is a warming house to thaw out your toes.Or, I could take you looking for homes in the area... there are many within walking distance of the rink that are worth your time and money.I haven't actually been on skates in a few years, but have been kicking around the idea. I might just go and dust them off and head out myself... of course, it'll probably be next week when the temps have risen a bit!Happy skating!

"If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right. "Mary Kay AshSometimes it feels that no matter how hard you try that you can't, but the truth is... try harder! Have you ever watched a determined squirrel? Or a mouse? Or a gerbal? They will try and try and try until they succeed.... Yes, they might stop to relax once in awhile and then they get back to it! If they are gonna escape the glass cage that they are in - they are gonna do it if it takes their whole life. They just never ever give up! It's incredible to watch. I think that was my favorite part of having rodent pets growing up.... although I never did have one succeed in escaping.If you are determined to buy a house - you can do it. Maybe not today, but let's get you on track and soon. Soon it will happe...

Driving through downtown Elk River you will see a recently "upgraded" section with condos and a revamped bank and a new high rise store front... and then there is the good ol' Elk River Farm Supply! A good ol' reminder that we aren't so far from the countryside. Busy all day long - these guys supply many animal lovers and farmers with product to keep their businesses and hobbies going. Setting right next to the railroad tract it almost seems the perfect place for a train depot. How long can we hold onto the past? It will be wonderful if we can keep our heritage alive for some time longer. With the renovation of the highways and the upgrading of older buildings I wonder how long we can hang on to the country feeling.

 Can you find the affordable Aldi?They are hidden outside of town on Hwy 10! This affordable grocery store looks like an upgraded and fancy shopping experience, but really has some of the best savings around! Being new to the area - they are one of the best kept secrets around. So, pull out your wallets and let's go shopping! And while you are at, bring a friend. Let's spread the word and keep these guys in town....Aldi Grocery Store

So, on a slow day in the middle of winter what would you do?!?!?!... My son thought is was the best to go sledding! You should have heard him squeal... and this morning he's been pointing at his snowsuit saying "on" for hours. Do you think he had enough? Not a chance!If the weather stays nice we'll be hitting up the parks again real soon. Elk River has lots of nice sledding spots that are family friendly! Elk River ParksWe go to a park near my parents house, but the Lions Park has one massive huge hill that says "slide on me!" in great big letters!!!! (It's also fun to roll down that hill in the summer!)So, on a day with not much to do, grab those boots and hot chocolate and head for the hills!

Downtown Elk River is a beautiful place. You can find some great architechure along the river, but my favorite is the old churches!!!! There are several beautiful churches that sport the downtown area and I love just sitting and looking at their elegance and grace. Over the holidays they hang lights and enjoy the season!Anyways, if you are looking for a place to worship, these are some great places!Elk River Churches

Across the street from this train track there is a lot for sale that gives a marvelous view of the river and downtown Elk River. Is the noise of the train worth the view? I suppose that is something each individual has to determine for ones self... I wouldn't mind the view, or the closeness of the downtown area but find the train to be quite a challenge to overcome! How about you?

Where in Elk River can you find such a peaceful place for a picnic?Well, maybe a picnic would be a little on the chilly side this time of year, but there is a beautiful view overlooking the Mississippi River in downtown Elk River.This new addition to the downtown area is a place of peace and beauty. Last week they held the holiday even in this area and during the summer they hold weekly concerts in this beautiful place. Hope that you are able to visit yourself one day.
