MINNEAPOLIS REAL ESTATE
Regularly named one of the great American cities to live in, Minneapolis is one of the most thriving cultural communities in the country, rich in history and amenities for its nearly 400,000 residents. Minneapolis, along with its sister city, Saint Paul, is one half of the Twin Cities. This budding metropolitan area is the second largest in the Midwest, after Chicago, and is a major attraction to young artists, businessmen, and families alike. Prospective homeowners have a wealth of possibilities in a wide variety of up-and-coming neighborhoods that will undoubtedly make a relocation to Minneapolis a rewarding investment and an enriching experience.
The economy of Minneapolis is one of the primary reasons this city is so attractive to many people seeking to relocate. Next to other cities of comparable size and population, the education rate and median household income is higher, the unemployment rate is lower, and housing is much more affordable. The Twin Cities combine to contribute nearly two-thirds of Minnesota’s gross state product, which makes it an incredibly lucrative area to build a career in almost any profession.
If you are thinking about a career change—or a career beginning, for that matter—Minneapolis provides many institutions that can assist you in your professional transition. In 2006, the University of Minnesota ranked fourth in the nation in students enrolled, and offers a vast number of undergraduate, graduate and professional programs. Likewise, the city is home to St. John’s University, the University of St. Thomas, and dozens of private, professional and technical schools that will accommodate your needs. I am also quite familiar with the public and private school system in Minneapolis, so if you have children and are looking for help in selecting a good school for them to attend, I would be more than happy to help you out.
Minneapolis is also one of the most concentrated areas for entertainment in the entire country. One of the richest scenes for live theater anywhere, the city boasts more professional theater companies per capita than any city besides New York. Likewise, music lovers can find a great concert to check out on any given night of the week; the First Avenue and 7th Street entry rock venues are favorites for national and local acts, classical connoisseurs will be drawn to the world-class Minnesota Orchestra and Minnesota Opera, while jazz fans can get cozy at the famous Dakota jazz club. Minneapolis also is home to three major art museums and professional teams in every major sport; regardless of personal interests, there is never a lack of exciting events to take in.
For those looking to live in the heart of the city, downtown Minneapolis boasts a blossoming scene for lofts and condominiums within walking distance from many of the city’s major attractions, such as the Target Center, the Metrodome, the Guthrie Theater, and the Walker Art Center. Though many changes have been made in the last several years, the view of the downtown skyline remains one of the most breathtaking and identifiable in the entire United States. While many of the elite high-rise condos remain pricey, many more affordable units have been built in the last five years to accommodate new residents.
If the hustle and bustle of downtown doesn’t quite meet your needs, many wonderful residential communities are located nearby. Southwest Minneapolis, or the Uptown district, is one of the more popular places to live because of the numerous independent businesses, as well as many of the most talked about restaurants and theaters in the city. Many brand new condominiums are being built that are spacious and affordable, not to mention a variety of townhouses, single family homes and duplexes. Uptown also contains a large rental market that will easily accommodate singles and families alike.
