This is the soundtrack for this story.

The snow is snowing and the wind it is blowing<br /> But I can weather the storm<br /> What do I care how much it may storm<br /> I've got my love to keep me warm...

The Home at 518 7th Avenue SW in Rochester, Minnesota is built for all seasons, but for winter it is an especially strong choice (especially at $375,000).

Sitting by the fire within an enormous hearth, the windows the only screen you need for another Minnesota Snow Show, you and your sweetie pie, or kids if you have 'em, all snuggled up on the couch under a blanket, watching Mother Nature cover everything in a winter haze.

At least that's what I think when I see this 107-year-old home in the Historic Southwest neighborhood of The Med City. A few steps from Pill Hill (great for a daily walk and stroller roll), you have three bedrooms, two total baths, original hardwood floors, and gorgeous woodwork throughout the house.

There's a second-floor enclosed porch that would make a great day room if you have little kids, or a morning coffee room if you love to start the day looking out at the world.

Add central air, forced air heating, and the short walk to Downtown Rochester with dining and fun, one of Rochester's largest parks, and a grade school that's just up the hill, and this home is pretty attractive. Let's take a look...

  • What's not to love about this beautiful home? The period charm, the architectural details and updates including kitchen & baths make it a great place for you. 
  • The second story enclosed porch is a great place to enjoy the outdoors while relaxing indoors, it also gives views out over the fenced yard. 
  • This home offers a great location in the heart of Historic Southwest with easy access to hospitals, grocery stores and Soldier's Field. 
  • Home is being sold "as-is."

PS - The home is being sold as is.

Why Would Someone Sell a Home As-Is?


According to,

Frequently sellers state that they want to sell their Minnesota home “as-is.” I do not believe it is because they are hiding some adverse condition about the home. The seller is fearful that the buyer expects the seller to warrant future condition of the home. The seller just wants to be “done” with the transaction, and does not want to revisit it in the future.

Sometimes, sellers don’t know much about a property, and do not wish to be held accountable for any conditions of which they are unaware. This is especially true in the case of estate sales, or if the seller is a lender who has taken back a Minnesota property through foreclosure.
