You can have fresh locally grown produce every week without all the work of a garden while helping to support a sustainable food supply in your area. Local growers and farmers are giving customers a chance to buy a "share" of their freshly harvested locally grown produce through a program called a CSA. CSA is an acronym for Community Supported Agriculture and is becoming a popular way for people to buy farm direct for fresh nutrient packed produce. For a full list of the multiple ways these programs contributes to your community please check out the list on LocalHarvest. Last year our fresh and local chemical free grower Gaia Garden Designs started a wonderful CSA program offering both 1/2 and full shares of produce. Each week subscribers were able to pick up their share of garden fresh...

Yesterday I decided to check the HUD list to see if there were any HUD homes in St. Cloud and surrounding area. I have sold these properties for years and like to keep informed about what is available. At first I did a smart search, entering state, county; then zip codes, and getting little action. The closest I could find was in Kimball which is 20+ minutes south. So I searched the whole state and scrolled down the list, all 276 HUD homes in Minnesota, from Austin to International Falls (Frostbite Falls for you Bulwinkle fans). I was unable to find a listing in St. Cloud, or Sauk Rapids, or Sartell, or Waite Park, all of the contiguous communities. This is significant because this is a large market area, and I don't remember the last time the HUD shelf was bare in the last 4 years. Als...

Q: How do I calculate the size of the lot for the house I want to buy in St. Cloud MN? Most homes in the St. Cloud MN area have the lot size written on the MLS sheet as one measurement X another measurement. When you get into looking at homes for sale with over an acre of land it is usually listed on the MLS sheet with the acreage already calculated in the acreage category. Take for instance a house for sale in South St Cloud MN with a lot that is 100 x 185. Is that close to an acre? How do you calculate the acerage? First you multiple the 2 numbers of the lot size, in the example of 100 X 185 the lot size works out to 18,500 square feet. An acre is 43,560 square feet, so this would equal 0.42 acre, or just under 1/2 acre. To determine acreage simply divide square feet/43,560=acres. A g...

WE"RE NUMBER 1 1 Degree above zero. Yes, here on the frozen tundra of St. Cloud, MN we cling to almost anything for bragging rights. You would too if your football team did as bad as the Vikings did this year. But we're tuff! We can take it! 1 Degree above zero is the upside, while the sun is out, high in the sky. The downside is after the sun goes down. The overnight low in St. Cloud, MN is predicted to be -19 with 15-20 mph winds out of the northwest. Yep, that's right, our wind comes from Fargo (insert joke here). According to the handy wind chill chart that makes the wind chill temperature -47. Ouch! On nights like this everyone needs to be inside and under a blanket. Cars need to run to warm up before being driven. Extra clothing goes with the car, just in case. Animals need extra ...

There is a foreclosure in Saint Cloud MN that has been going on for 3 years. It could now potentially have an impact on the entire country, just like the Massachusetts case that voided 2 foreclosures earlier this year. On January 15, 2011 the Star Tribune printed a story called Tiny law project looking for big case ; the case of the Saint Cloud MN homeowners foreclosure battle. The homeowners assert the bank lacks the legal standing to foreclose, and their attorney alleges that the bank (US Bank) fabricated paperwork they could not find, in order to prove their position. US Bank claims they have no responsibility to prove the process was done correctly, as they are a Trustee for the securitization. The homeowners attorney is currently seeking class action status, which could make the im...

HOW TO PEEL THE BIG ONION WITHOUT CRYING! When I was a young real estate puppy, many years ago, I had what I would describe as a fear of doing bad things to good people. Basically, I worried about damaging the name my Father gave me, and the look in his eyes when he found out. Then there was the client, the Broker, the lawyers. I knew then how little I knew, and had to balance my desire to learn with my desire to earn! Mostly things have worked out. I did a few things right, like starting out in a teaching environment, with knowledgeable and helpful Agents. I went to the Broker or one of the veterans before I got in trouble, and I figured out intelligent questions to ask before I started talking:) I took useful CE classes and sat in the front of the room, so I could see and hear, and ac...

"Buy a House... Then Buy Another". Today's home prices are on a par with about 2004 in St. Cloud MN, but the home affordability is probably more like 1996 according to Chris Mayer of Daily Reckoning. Adjusted for inflation he suggests today's affordability is 30% lower than 1996. Put simply, affordability is the price you pay per month, not the gross sale price. It's how your paycheck is impacted by owning the home, and the mortgage that usually comes with it! The quote was originally attributed to Adam Smith on the Dick Cavett Show in 1971, but it's good advise today, being repeated by some of the best in the investment business, like John Paulson (a hedge fund manager; he made 2.5 billion personally betting against the sub-prime lending market) who called the housing bust in '07.
