The Neighborhood Stabilization Program is a live and well. There are a few homes available in St. Paul and some more on the way. Homes are rehabilitated through this program and then resold. They don’t just slap a coat of paint on them either. They are brought up to code and energy efficient improvements are added. It is like getting a new house for the price of an old one.
In each of the last two years I have represented of buyers who have purchased these homes. They living happily ever after in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood. The program is a little more complicated than a straight purchase because there are income limits and there is usually some assistance money available to help with closing costs.
The picture is of a home on Maria Avenue that is in the process f being renovated and will be sold to some lucky buyer.
