      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Real state Question

Recommended Posts

Maybe for the sales professionals out there.

I have lake property in MN that we put a mobile home on, it does not have a septic system, yet. I realy don't plan on putting on in. I might be selling it in the near future so is lake property like homes where the septic has to be up to code?????

Now, I plan on buying a cabin in WI. Because of the size of the lot and it's proximity to the water it has a holding tank. Again, does this need to be updated prior to the sale of the property???

Does anyone have experience in dealing with these issues???

Thanks,

Mike

I can't say that I have specific experience with it, but I would assume if the home is permanent then you need some sort of system...even if it's an approved outhouse. If it's truly a mobile home that can be removed easily then I doubt you need a septic.

Some lake associations and townships might have specific rules that you may need to look into as well.

When I listed our lake place with a year around home on it the septic system has to be checked if it doesn't pass it has to be brought up to code. Not sure on the lot with a trailer. I would say check with a real estate agent, they should know that stuff in your area.

In Beltrami county(bemidji area), as of yet, there is no "county" code that states your septic must be up to code. They tried hard a few years back to get everyone up to code, but it fell thru. Up here, if your system isn't up to "code", the realtor will list it "as is", which is perfectly fine/legal. It may effect who can purchase your place because many banks won't loan on a house with out of date septic. If listed "as is", it usually becomes a bargaining issue between buyer/seller, especially if the new buyer wants an "coded" septic. IMO, many of these so called up to date septic systems are a big joke. Mound systems are the worst things ever developed to supposedly have a septic up to code. Ground evaporation septics have been used for thousands of years, but since you din't "pay" a fee to the county agent, it won't be up to code. Taz

If it is not a "cabin" then it will be listed as a "lot" or land. You do NOT need a septic for that. But be aware, that getting loans for "lots" are tougher than cabins, as there is a higher rate of foreclosure (gulp...) on them.

In your case, you would probably sell the lot and the trailer seperately, even if to the same person, or maybe sell trailer for like $1 or something. Real Estate guys could tell you that.

But if it is a structure that anybody would sleep in, then you will need an up to date septic, I believe. My bro-in-law had to put in a new septic system in order to sell his place on Rush Lake near Rush City MN, but his was a true cabin.

When we bought our lot, it had only a big shed and an outhouse on it, and we had to buy it as a "lot" that was not a 30 year mortgage, but a "land loan". Easy for us to get at the time, but higher interest rate and it had to be renewed every three years. We are now building a full blown cabin so new septic going in.

Good luck with the sale and new purchase!

edit: Taz is right. For my bro-in-law, it wasn't that the county made him put in septic, it was that nobody would lend to buyer unless the septic was up to date and up to code. So if somebody comes in with ca$h that would not be an issue. That's right, now that I remember.

The lot your buying with holding tank is fine to go.The lot your selling if there's a well and a cabin,moblehome, Minium of holding tank or septic.I believe within 1000 ft of shoreline mound system or holding required.

The state Health Dept.Controls these sewer systems,the counties only inspect,require for compliance.

Contact The State Health Dept for a true and correct answer to your question.

I reread SORRY I dont know about Wisc.

    • Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.
    • I retract the above statement 
    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.
