When searching for a home in Cambridge MN and Isanti MN make sure your search is set up to include the area townships. You might need to just set the search up for Isanti County. If that is too wide spread use the 55008 and 55040 zip code search. You need to do this because some of the area townships will get missed on some of the website you set your search up on. For example if your looking for acreage property in Cambridge, you might be missing out if Cambridge Township or Springvale Township is not somehow included in your search. Some Cambridge homes are also Isanti Township or even Bradford or Spenser Brook Township. Again on some websites searching Isanti and Cambridge homes might not get them all. Your best bet is to contact a Realtor and have them set up a search on their MLS a...

The Cambridge Isanti School Theatre Departments Final showing of the Musical "4 AM" is today at 3pm at the Richard G. Hardy performing arts center at Cambridge Isanti High School. My wife and I went to last nights performance and found it to be worth the watch. I am not a huge arts guy, but this musical moved along quickly with several different scene woven together nicely.  The music, directed by Aaron Knudsvig, was probably the highlight. I thought the acting was very good by the kids and the directing and choryography was well done. The spot for improvement might be the humor.  There were mixing in some drama and humor and the humor part did not take as well as I thought they were hoping with last nights crowd.  They have been making adjustments daily so I am guessing some of this wi...

This is an oldie, but a goodie!   We sometimes forget how lucky we are in this country.  With the disaster in the world today...we need to remember some of this... With Money you can buy a house, but not a home. With Money you can buy a clock, but not time. With Money you can buy a bed, but not sleep. With Money you can buy a book, but not knowledge. Wtih Money you can buy a doctor, but not goo health. With Money you can buy a position, but not respect. With Money you can buy blood, but not life. With Money you can buy Sex, but not love! Stop and hold a loved one today and give thanks for what you have.

Most of the foreclosure listings I am showing these days are Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and HUD homes.  I recently had a HUD HOME closing on a house in Cambridge, MN and was pleased at how smooth it went.  It was a cash buyer, but no delays on the closing in fact it closed sooner then expected! HUD homes to me tend to be the best deal. One reason is that not every Realtor is registered by HUD.  You need to be a HUD Registered Agent in Minnesota to submit and offer.  Of course I am a HUD registered agent!   There are certain patterns I notice in getting your Minnesota HUD home offer accepted.  Plus they are very picky on having the right paperwork filled out at the time of submitting the offer package. If its not done right they can cancel the sale.  Which would be disappointing being you l...

Today I previewed some homes for an investor buyer in Cambridge, MN and right now there are some real good homes for close to $100,000 that would work for buyers looking in this range and wanting a move in ready home.  Some of the homes need paint, carpet cleaning or some appliances. This is pretty normal for the foreclosure and short sale homes in the area. Cambridge, MN Real Estate buyerscan find a 3 BR, 2BA home with a 3 car garage for $105,000 or less.  There are one of those type of homes that are nice so it should sell soon.  There are a few more 2 BR, 1 BA homes with a 3 car garage with some basement finishing started.  There is a short sale listing in Cambridge for $95,000 that is move in ready and it has 3 BR, 2BA and a 2 car garage.

Most all of us have some good stories about our grandparents wisdom or that of others.  Some of the greatest is when a Teen tries to match wits with an elder.  Case in Point. A teenage granddaughter comes down the stairs with a see-through blouse on and no bra.  Grandma, pitched a fit, (Only Grandma's are allowed to Pitch a fit) telling her not to dare go out like that. "Loosen up Grammy...These are modern times and you've got to let your rosebuds show!"  Then out the door she went. The next day the teenager comes down the stairs, and finds Grandma sitting in the kitchen with NO top on.  The teen explains that she has friends coming over and that this just isn't appropriate... To which grandma replies... "Loosen up Sweetie...if you can show off your rose buds...I can display my hanging ...

It has been a long day.  Not complaining, just a long day. Nothing better than finding a chuckle in my E-Mail.  So I am going to share this one. A wife was upset with her husband for being out so often late at night.  So the next time he took her with him. "What will you have?" he asked her. "I suppose that same as you." was her reply. "2 Jacks in a glass Barkeep" the husband said.  When they arrived, he took his and slammed it back and slapped the glass on the bar. The wife took hers and daintily took a sip.  "Yuck, this stuff is like poison" she said. "Well, there you go, and you think I am out enjoying myself every night!"

Every now and again, out Pastor shows that he is human and throws out a joke that makes you wonder, although it fit perfectly into his message.  Here is that funny... Every Sunday after church, a local pastor would ride his bike to an appointed place and meet the Bishop.   Then the 2 of them would go for a ride and talk about the days sermon and the week ahead.  One Sunday, the Bishop arrived at the appointed meeting place and waited, and waited and waited.  Finally about 1/2 hour late, here comes the Pastor walking up the side walk. What are you doing, inquired the Bishop, you know that we always ride bikes on Sunday. "Well, I don't know how to say this, but someone form my congragation stole my bike.  I have been trying most of the week to figure out how to ask for it back." Well, tha...

This statement is so true in many aspects of our lives.  I was out Ice Fishing last weekend.  When I got home, my new Bass Masters Magazine was waiting for me.  After reading it from cover to cover...I started to make my list of the soft water season. In the mean time, My brother sent this cute story... A dad was taking his son fishing.  They were out in the garden digging some worms, when the boy picked up a creature with all kinds of legs. "Look at this one," he proudly showed his dad. "He's pretty cool," Dad replied, "But he wont work for  bait.  It isn't and earthworm." The boy was amazed..."Well, what planet is he from then, Dad?" Yup, it's never to early to plan!

It is true.  We all like to think we get better with age, or experience.  It isn't always true, but why crash the party.This little ditty caught my funny bone. hope you enjoy. At the dinner table one night the wife commented..."When we were first married, you would give me the bigger steak and take the smaller one for yourself.  Now, you take the bigger one and leave me with the small one.  Why is that? Don't you love me?" To which the husband replied..."Nonsense, I still Love you. You just cook much better now!" I WOULD BE SLEEPING ON THE SOFA! Have a great weekend!

736 Joes Lake Road, Cambridge is a new listing I noticed on the BEST ASSETS website. I have not seen the home come up on the MLS yet so this is a home that a lot of buyers might not know about. The link to the info is here: http://www.tenmanagement.com/listings/property-detail.do?list=2009-11-20&code=MN&case=271-889779 The initial bidding period ends next Sunday 11/29.  I have been finding a lot of good deals on HUD homes this year and this one is price below market value now.  So if you or someone you know whats to take a look at it let me know.

I am about to do some cold calling but I am procrastinating by writing a blog first.  I am not cold calling for Real Estate leads, rather I need to find a few extra softball players for one of our church softball teams. Cambridge Lutheran Church had two teams last year and this year a few more people wanted to play so I decided we would start a 3rd team.  I captain Team #1, but overall I coordinate the program so to get things going I need to make sure there is enough players.  I got a list of people I don't know much or at all to call from one of the pastors and this morning I am going to start calling.  I have not cold called for a while, so I needed to post a blog first to get me in the cold calling mode. Thankfully I don't have to cold call for real estate clients because its not so...
