Crystal, Minnesota is located mere minutes away from Minneapolis, yet this beautiful suburb has a much different feel than its urban neighbor. With only 23,000 residents, Crystal manages to retain a more laid-back pace of life and a family-friendly environment, which appeals to many who are looking to relocate to the suburbs. This area has some of the best deals available in the real estate market today, and if you are considering buying a home for you and your family, I strongly urge you to consider Crystal real estate.


One of the main priorities of the city is to continue to keep neighborhoods safe and clean in order to maintain its small-town charm. Because so many families reside here, education is highly emphasized, as is maintaining the excellent city parks offered in Chaska. On any weekend afternoon, parents and children can enjoy time outside and get to know their neighbors. By emphasizing families, the city stimulates a strong sense of community, something that greatly contrasts the more hectic lifestyles of Minneapolis and Saint Paul. The Crystal Cove Aquatic Center offers a wonderful pool in the summertime, as well as many programs for children and adults alike.


While Crystal offers a number of stellar neighborhoods, it is firmly committed to bringing others up to its high standard. Crystal’s Economic Development Authority has been busy in the last couple of years developing a program to improve neighborhood quality by buying older homes in poor quality for demolition, and subsequently selling the open lots to willing buyers. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in building their dream home from the ground up. Many lots are currently available at very affordable prices, and I would urge you to consider this option. There is nothing better than the luxury of customizing your own home.


On the other hand, there are also a wealth of possibilities with the pre-existing real estate offerings. Many great single-family homes are currently available, so if you are looking for a nice starter home in a comfortable neighborhood, there is plenty to look at. If you are looking for something a little larger, there are a number of multi-story homes available in excellent neighborhoods. Whatever your particular needs are in terms of size or location, I would be happy to set up an appointment with you to discuss your option in order to find the home that is right for you.


Buying a home, whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned real-estate investor, is an extremely important decision.
