Who doesn’t want a deal when it comes to buying real estate in St. Paul? If you’re willing to put in some elbow grease to bring our first deal up to snuff you may end up paying less for housing every month than you would if you rented.
Keep in mind that FHA’s 203k program is ideal for the buyer who purchases a fixer. Roll the cost of the rehab and the price of the home into one loan!
Live in one, rent the other one out!
This Frogtown conversion from a single-family home to a duplex is one of the most-viewed listings on the St. Paul MLS. Built in 1900, the property features a single-car detached garage and a small, fenced yard.
Yes, this one needs some work, but you can’t beat the price: $38,300.
