If I’m buying a house that is listed as a homestead do I have to re-homestead the house when I buy it? If so, where do I need to go, what do I need, etc.

Yes, you have to apply to have the homestead credit registered in your name. As I recall, when we bought our house, the realtor (or the closing company, I don’t recall which) had the necessary paperwork ready for us at the closing. All we had to do was sign it and submit the application to the county.

I’m sure if you Google it, you’ll find a county website with all of the information you need. For example, I Googled “Dakota County Homestead”, and the very first link contained all of the necessary information. Dakota county even lets you apply online (that wasn’t an option 3 1/2 years ago).
