In the Twin Cities metro area, the number of home foreclosure notices received increased by 1,334, a 3% increase over 2009.
Home Foreclosures 2011
As of Oct, 2011 Minnesota has over 1,200 foreclosures and still counting while many more homeowners are over three months late on their mortgage payments and wondering how they will ever catch up.

Home Foreclosures As Of May 2012
In Q1 of this year, there have been 4,836 foreclosures in Minnesota far, which is the lowest quarterly statewide total since 2007. Overall, the numbers are down from Q1 2011 by 10%. Although the Minneapolis and St Paul real estate communities are seeing a slow downward trend in home foreclosures over the past two years, it should be noted that the 4,836 foreclosures seen in Q1 2012 still far exceeds the 1,618 foreclosures averaged for each quarter in 2005, the first year sheriff sale records were totaled for the state of Minnesota.
US Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said late Monday that he expects to see a very high rate of home foreclosures finish out 2011. "We hope to see this decline by next year," he said in a speech delivered in Georgia. He admitted that the rate of home foreclosures in not going down and will be increasing in 2012. As home prices soared at double digit rates during the recent, inflated housing market, many aspiring homeowners stretched themselves financially to purchase a home. The use of lower-interest rate ARMs, interest-only mortgages or option-ARMs that allowed Minneapolis home buyers to choose how to pay each month soared without our careful attention. With these balances becoming due, many homeowners are in or facing home foreclosures. According to the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, ARMs now represent 25 percent of the more than $8.5 trillion in outstanding loans.
RealtyTrac's spokesman Daren blomquist, told Minnesota Public Radio that homeowners should expect a rise in home foreclosures in 2012. The reason for the resurgence of foreclosures will be due in large part to mortgage companies catching up with backlogs of delinquent mortgages. Nationally, Blomquist believes we will see as much as a 25 percent increase in foreclosures in 2012. Foreclosures being sold by banks have held a particular attractive opportunity for residential investors. Depending on market conditions at a given time, the saturation point of Minneapolis foreclosed homes can be so plentiful in some markets that many consumers are purchasing them as primary residences.
Buying A Foreclosed Home Versus A Traditional Home Sale
Many local Minneapolis real estate markets that once were saturated with foreclosed properties are starting to even out. Increased numbers of prospective Twin Cities homebuyers are taking a closer look at buying traditional homes sales as home prices mend. Purchasing a foreclosure isn't just a simple matter of scoring a bargain. It may be more important to consider if the home is in proximity to work, schools, recreation, shopping districts, and medical facilities - depending on your personal needs. Keith Gumbinger, vice president of HSH.com, has termed buying at a bargain the "desperation factor" of the bank that needs to sell the property.

Minnesota Division of Property Records and Taxation
Some Minnesota foreclosed homes are sold by public auction. For example, Anoka County is conducting a Public Land Sale of tax-forfeit properties on November 14, 2012. The Division of Property Records and Taxation carries out the statutory duties of the offices of the Auditor, Treasurer, Assessor, Registrar of Titles and Recorder, exclusive of elections, investments and licensing. The mission of this division is to administer the property records and tax laws of the State thereby insuring the equitable allocation, collection and distribution of property taxes and accurate maintenance of land records in an environment of continuous improvement of the quality of our services.
Distressed-property buyers are often numbed by stumbling across misdirected anger by the previous homeowner, who may be taking their feelings of depression and loss out in a negative manner. Prospective home buyers are having to handle the fallout from the ruined lives of previous owners that result in vandalized properties and the burden of liens from second mortgages, taxes, unpaid utility bills, balances owed on homeowner-association dues and court judgments. If you are purchasing a home foreclosure, be sure to take in the full picture first. Final sale prices may not be significantly lower than traditional home for sale in some areas, because the foreclosure glut has also driven down prices for sellers who aren't underwater or in default.
Advice, directives, and real estate investors seeking to buy home foreclosures are warned as follows, "Tax-Forfeited Parcels are properties on which delinquent property taxes were not paid, title to the land and buildings was forfeited and title is now vested in the State of Minnesota. Following a review period per Minnesota Statutes, these properties are classified and open to the public to purchase. All property is sold 'as is' and may not conform to local building and zoning ordinances. The County makes no warranty that the land is 'buildable'. All sales are final, and no refunds or exchanges are permitted on foreclosures Minneapolis."
Investors Buying Up Minnesota Foreclosed Homes
One example is Two Harbors Investment Corp., a publicly traded real estate investment trust out of Minnetonka, Minnesota. Two Harbors has spent $4.3 million to buy 48 properties in Sarasota and Manatee counties since mid August, having all buying purchases from county-run online foreclosure auctions. It has create a challenge for individual investors. "It may be good for our market by keeping less distressed inventory from flowing in. But I somehow don’t think they have a complete grasp on the ramifications," says Mike Acklin in The Herald Tribune.
Here is an example of one property:
4025 WORCESTER RD, SARASOTA 1,296-square-foot house built in 1948
Price Paid: $67,500
