St. Paul Condos and Lofts for Sale – Convenient Living
As people move back into the cities for the convenience of no commuting and easy access to the vibrant urban life, condominium and loft developments have led the way. St. Paul is no exception to this trend. Development projects exist in all neighborhoods, especially in the central district near the city’s busy core and in the sought-after Crocus Hill neighborhood. New developments are in the works, as well, and recently built condominium developments are scattered throughout the city.
In St. Paul, lofts and condos for sale usually number in the hundreds at any given time, making it easy to find a condo or loft that fits any budget or taste. Condominiums and lofts are very similar, but lofts are generally located in converted commercial buildings, while traditional condominiums include landscaped outdoor areas and other common facilities. In all cases, the owner has deeded ownership to the interior areas of the home. They also have shared ownership in the actual structure and common areas. The attractiveness of this easy living is based on several characteristics:
- Carefree Lifestyle – Owners are free of the common maintenance and upkeep chores of a stand-alone home. Landscaping, exterior painting and maintenance, and other chores like snow removal are handled by third parties, hired by the owners’ association.
- Urban Access – All these properties in St. Paul provide easy access to the rich cultural and business life of the city, without the long drives necessary for suburban homeowners.
- No Commuting Stress – Living near your work cuts down on commuting time and costs. Public transportation also allows condo and loft owners to commute quickly.
- Lower Cost – In most cases, a condominium or loft in a given area is less expensive to buy than an equivalent single-family home in the same neighborhood.
- Sense of Community – Condominium and loft living encourages residents to associate with other residents. Common areas such as recreation centers, pools, and more, also facilitate interaction between residents.

An association, made up of the owners, handles the maintenance and upkeep of the buildings and common areas, while the individual owner is responsible for the interior of his home, and associated property. Association dues cover the cost of common area maintenance. Typically, the association also has rules adopted by its members to control the use of the common areas and to restrict owners in some ways that might adversely affect other owners.
