Realty Round Up: Southwest Minneapolis, Minnesota

Emily Oster

Over the past year, we have had the opportunity to visit Minneapolis twice. We were lucky enough to have local friends be our guides and really feel in love with the city. Before visiting, I sort of knew I would really like Minneapolis. Growing up in Michigan, I am a big lake girl so the idea that you could have lakes and an urban area is pretty amazing. Also maybe because of its Scandinavian roots, Minneapolis is probably one of the most design minded cities in America - another great plus. And just to add the cherry on top, there is skiing well within weekend driving distance. 

Upon visiting, my favorite area of the city was Southwest Minneapolis. With its abundance of lakes and green space as well as thriving town areas, it would definitely be my pick of location if I were to ever become a Minnesotan. Some local places I would frequent again are:
- Patisserie 46 - I think I would fly to Minn. just for the chocolate croissants.
- Lakewood Cemetery Garden Mausoleum - An amazing building not to be missed
- Heidi's Minneapolis - We had a really delicious dinner here.
- Lake Harriet Band Shell - It would be great to go to concerts here.

I really like the cottage feel of this house. It seems warm and inviting and I could see the fireplace getting lots of use during the long Minneapolis winters. It also has a great location as it is just one block to a local park and roughly nine blocks to Lake Harriet.

House #2: $250,000 - $500,000

I like the open floor plan of this house. It also seems to have lots of natural light which as you might know by now is huge for me. 

House #3: $500,000 - $750,000

This house has great curb appeal. It also sits on a double lot so it has plenty of outdoor space. Its biggest selling point for me though is that it is just 4 blocks from Lake Harriet.

House #4: $750,000 - $1,000,000

This house is definitely in need of some updating but it has good bones so I think it could turn into something pretty spectacular. Also at just 2 blocks from the lake I bet it would be a great investment.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
