There is little worse than wanting to buy a home in St. Louis Park and, despite the fact that you have a steady employment history, decent income and clean credit history, you’re afraid that you can’t get a loan because you don’t have a huge chunk of cash to give the lender to secure a mortgage.

This condition is known as “cash poor,” and you aren’t alone. If you’re thinking that zero to low down payment mortgages are a thing of the past, think again. They still exist and there are ways you can get into that home with little cash out of your pocket.

No down payment: VA loan

One of the most challenging aspects of shopping for a home in St. Louis Park is finding the perfect neighborhood. What constitutes perfection varies from person-to-person which is why we’re sometimes stumped when our clients ask for a recommendation.

This is why we decided to feature a different St. Louis Park neighborhood each month here on the St. Louis Park Real Estate blog. This month, it’s Amhurst. Read on to become acquainted with what is known as “A Village in the City.”

Located in southwest St. Louis Park, north of Highway 7 and south of West 36th St, between Highway 169 and the City of Minnetonka, this townhouse community dates back to the 1980s.

Guess he doesn’t really love it all that much

The West End location of Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill is shuttered – for good. Apparently, the eatery failed to pay its liquor taxes in May. Whether that’s the reason they decided to close or not, we don’t know. What we do know is that as long as they remained on the delinquent taxpayer list, vendors are prohibited from delivering to the company.

 

That’s ok California loves us

Look for a new pizzeria from California’s Blaze Pizza to open next week at the Shoppes at Knollwood here in St. Louis Park. Plans call for seating for 54 indoors and a small patio that
