We are continuing to look for a house for our daughter who recently got a job in MSP. She can afford a house for about $120,000. Does anyone know about the neighborhood in Nokomis just east of Lake Hiawatha and Lake Nokomis? There are some decent houses for sale there, but we want to make sure the neighborhood is pretty nice.

Yes! It is a very nice neighborhood. I've lived here for 7 years. (Moving in June) If you don't need lots of bedrooms or 2 bathrooms there are some great deals here. But word of advice... the homes in good condition - that are already flipped or don't need lots of updating.. are going REALLY fast.. If your daughter finds something she likes, put an offer down immediately. Chances are if she takes time to think about it (like even overnight), the home will be gone.

We have just been through this.... all the flipped homes went almost as soon as tax return season came. Now mostly what's left are the homes that are not updated, but in livable condition. -i.e Old kitchen, no dishwasher, LOTS of wood paneling, funky wallpaper, etc. If your daughter can wait a few more months - like closer to Nov/Dec more flips will come on the market and the selection in this neighborhood will be better.

FWIW... we ended up having to buy out of the neighborhood because we waited about 2 weeks too long to start looking and all the really great deals - the homes that were sitting all winter long got snapped up the first week of April.

Good Luck!
