Home buyers seeking residential properties have a large number of options available according to the current listings by Northstar MLS MN brokers and agents. From large condominium developments and single-family homes in a wide price range, buyers can find almost any type of home. Below $100,000, older single-family homes and condominiums make up most of the listings. In the $100-200,000 price range, units in high-rise condominium developments combine with many rambler-style homes built in the 50s and 60s to make up almost half of all multiple listings. From $200-300,000, larger, well-maintained single-family homes, built in the post-WWII boom, in quiet tree-lined neighborhoods make up most of the listings. Few listings priced higher than $300,000 are available, but include spacious homes, higher-end condominiums, and commercial properties.
