Andover Real Estate – Northstar MLS MN Member
Andover, once a sleepy farming township in Anoka County, began growing explosively in the 1970s, as people sought refuge from the overly hectic city life and traffic. That growth continues today. New and established families choose this city for their hometown, despite the leisurely commute, for its quiet semi-isolated location, far from the rush of life in closer-in communities. With pockets of agricultural land still undeveloped within the city, a rural feeling is still part of life.

Andover Real Estate by Northstar MN MLS Participants
Since the city developed later in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area than closer-in suburbs, most homes are no older than the 1970s, with many built in the 2000s. In keeping with its semi-rural nature, many homes are built on large lots or small acreage. Several developments offer large, well-appointed homes. Families desiring to build their own custom homes can choose from many lots of all sizes, including hobby farm sites. Numerous townhouse and condominium projects, with more planned, create attractively priced home opportunities, as well.
