Located on the bluffs above the St. Croix River, Stillwater is one of the most historic cities in Minnesota.

Its historic downtown, full of specialty shops, galleries, and restaurants makes this city a popular destination for visitors. Contemporary homes and extensive shopping are available elsewhere in the city.

With a growth spurt in the past two decades, a wide range of comfortable, spacious homes has appeared.

For families, the public schools offer a high-quality educational experience, adding to the attraction.
Stillwater is still growing, and a number of lots in the city are available, in a wide price range, according to the current property listings by Northstar MN MLS agent and broker members. Bargains in homes under $100,000 are limited, and are primarily modest condominiums and townhomes. A few foreclosed single-family homes appear in that price range in multiple listings. Between $100,000 and $200,000, buyers will find more condominiums and townhomes, along with a few single-family homes in the older neighborhoods near downtown, some over 100 years old. Options expand in the $200-300,000 range, and include river view condominiums in downtown Stillwater and historic and recent single-family homes. The $300-500,000 price range includes luxury condominiums, restored 19th century homes, and spacious recent homes in several developments located in the western portion of the city. A few lake-view and riverside homes also are available in this price range. Above $500,000, unique properties and homes fill out the rest of the listings.
