Cambridge, MN Real Estate...many deals for buyers! Its a great time to buy a home.  The proof is in the numbers.  $130,000 is an affordable home for many people. I pick this price because you can stay close to $1000 on the monthly payment.  There are also homes around $100,000 and with that you might be at $800/m on the payment.  At those prices you should be a HOME OWNER and not a renter.  Right now there are 59 active listings under $130,000.  There are currently 16 sales pending in that price range meaning the supply and demand is still out of balance.  Many of the active homes are bank owned.  This time of year its wise for the banks not to sit on properties in Minnesota heading into the winter.  Buyers its time to get out there and get yourself a great deal on the house.  Don't exp...

Amazing how much gas prices have dropped!  Today I purchased gas in my home town of Cambridge, MN for $2.39/gallon.  I was on 1/4 of a tank and I had to force the amount to get up to $25.00 even.  When I was at my brothers in Rochester, MN yesterday I fueled up for $2.76.  I went through many other cities in the last two days and Cambridge has the best gas prices I have seen! Perhaps you can share what gas prices are at in your area?   -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FOR A FREE COACHING ASSESSMENT CALL ME AT 763-635-7228 OR CONTACT ME THROUGH ACTIVE RAIN!  Please click here to subscribe to my blog .

Now this may not be the most conventional indoor pet, but I laughed so much a this rabbit that my step-son and wife have in the house.  totally potty trained.  Has a cage that when no one is around it goes into with out being told.  Nover jumps on the furnature or tables or counters.  ( I HATE CATS ON THE COUNTERS!!!)  Would I consider doing this...most likely NOT, but it sure works for them.  It was the most entertainment for the weekend!

 Here is what is happening in the Real Estate Market in Cambridge, MN:There are currently 208 active listings and 145 of those are under $200,000.  Right now there are 18 pending sales and in the last 30 days there have been 20 closed transactions.  Of those sales 17 have been under $200,000.  Isanti County has one of the highest foreclosure percentages in the state, so many of these transactions are on bank owned homes.  There are still numerous vacant homes in the area.  Expect the prices in Cambridge and the rest of Isanti County to come down a lot more still in the future.-30- Chuck Carstensen is a Realtor with The Discovery Team at RE/MAX; helping buyers, sellers, and investors of residential real estate in Isanti, Anoka, Sherburne and Wright County.  He is a speaker and co-author ...

             What good will this do?Some local realtors in Cambridge, Minnesota are asking the city for a temporary halt on building new single family homes.  One realtor feels that a moratorium on large developments would decrease housing inventories, thus result in higher home values and benefit all home owners.Has the city done a demographic study to determine housing need in Cambridge?  Has consideration been given to determine the effect of too much housing inventory (which results in lower home values)?  Has consideration been given to how the real estate market will be or has been affected by new developments?One local realtor states "Anyone who has tried to sell a home within the last three years has felt the negative impact of too much housing inventory."The Cambridge City Admi...

I was away from home this week, more CRS classes in Eagan, Mn.  I moved out of the downtown metro area of Minneapolis, St. Paul about 18 years ago, to a lakehome up on West Rush Lake, near Rush City.  I used to fly with the traffic twice a day with the best (some say worst!) of them.  But now....!!!! Help me, I have become a big city traffic "fraidy cat"!  Coming home in the rush hour traffic on Hwy 65, accidents, road rage..it all starts to melt away just before Isanti, and the cars become more sparse, a little slower, a little more like the pace back here at home.I love the Cambridge exit!  I love the way "my" city is growing, and hoping it is not growing too much.  I am hoping the city planners, are listening to the residents when working on the Comprehensive Plan.  Braking at the en...

The new Cambridge Community Ed brochure is out, and once again is packed with an incredible variety of classes and trips for everyone in the area.  I am always surprised at the diversity this town offers, and the offerings this summer are too varied to describe!  My son has already signed up for the "learn how to design your own computer games" class, and the Adult Special Interest portion has a couple classes I will be making time for.  The mission statement of the District Community Ed Program is "to provide opportunities for lifelong learning, thereby enhancing and enriching the lives of everyone in our community".  The board members of this wonderful organization deserve a cudos for constantly striving to achieve the promises of this statement.  For more information, cal  763-689-61...
