Hey there, I relocated to St. Paul awhile back with my company but I was very mobile and only wanted to rent. I had to move 9 months later to the East Coast. I loved the Twin Cities, though.

Anyway, I do think you would be best to listen to the relo people but then research some on your own. From experience, I would get the lowest possible mortgage, resist the offers for higher, resist those who say "but you can qualify for more."

I hate moving so if you rent first, you have to move twice and possibly deal with storage. However, a week is a short time to buy a house, though sounds like you lived in the area before and know what you want. The suburbs there are nice, I remember Applewood and White Bear Lake but I like the older city neighborhoods like the lakes are in Minneapolis. Sorry, just reminiscing!
