Minnesota Responds to the Rising Foreclosure Rates

By: Bob Smith

Home mortgage foreclosure listings are becoming novel-length nationwide.
Minneapolis is not exempt from this housing market dilemna. Many, many
neighborhoods are touched with a property in preforeclosure or
foreclosure. Minnesota is putting into effect a call 3-1-1 hotline for those
homewoners who are faced with impending foreclosure.

Minnesota officials are also meeting with homeowners groups and citizen
rights activist groups in an attempt to offer solutions and possible answers
to those individuals facing foreclosure. The state of Minnesota is
determined to thwart predatory lenders from illegal and unsavory lending
practices. Concurrently, they officials are meeting with area home
developers to try to work with them to revitalize the areas currently
suffering from high foreclosure rates.

As much as the state of Minnesota can do, unfortunately, it will not be
enough to help everyone. And some people may not apply or want help at
all. These properties can be found on Minnesota foreclosure listings.
When searching foreclosure listings, you will be surprised to find them in all
areas. This provides a plethura of opportunity. You can be a first time
homebuyer, a seasoned real estate investor or just seeking a new or
different location, foreclosure listings provide many addresses for you to
choose from.

Foreclosure listings are not different from MLS, except that the prices are
generally lower than those found in the MLS. Foreclosure properties are
anywhere from 10% - 50% below market value. To get the best deal on
foreclosure properties, you need to have your own finances in order and
you need to act fast. Comprehensive, up-to-the minute foreclosure listings
found on the internet usually will give you a heads up to what properties
are available and what stage of foreclosure they are in. The stage of the
foreclosure also dictates the dollar amount the property is expected to
produce. The longer the home has been sitting vacant and empty, the
better the deal may be. Lenders who have inadvertently become the
owner of foreclosure real estate truly want to sell them as soon as possible
as the lender is losing money each day the home is not producing funds.

Minnesota foreclosure listings can be found on the internet, in newspapers,
from lenders and brokers. Do not overlook the properties found on these
listings, they may be exactly what you are seeking in a bargain basement
real estate investment.
