As the fifth largest city in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, the Coon Rapids real estate market is one of the more popular markets in the state of Minnesota. It has about 61,000 residents and is located along the banks of the beautiful Mississippi River. One of my family’s favorite things to do during the summer is enjoy water sports during the summer. Part of the Coon Rapids Dam is raised for the summer season so residents can enjoy their favorite water activity or just relax along the beach.
The number of quality schools was one of the priorities on our list when we searched the Coon Rapids real estate market. There are 20 schools in the Coon Rapids area and it is part of the Anoka-Hennepin School District. Our kids attend the Northdale Middle School and they will soon attend the Coon Rapids High School in a couple years. Their test scores have increased since we moved here and the district as a whole has been given a 7 out of 10 rating by area parents.
For home buyers looking for homes in the Twin Cities area, the Coon Rapids neighborhoods are the place to search. Abbey Estates offers condominium living alongside the beautiful Mississippi River. It is close to several schools including Adams Elementary School and Riverview Elementary School. Thousand Oaks is another great neighborhood which is just a short walk away from Bunker Hills Regional Park and the Bunker Hill Golf Course. McKay Lake is just a few minutes away as well. Look for homes in the popular Bridgewater neighborhood, too.
The Coon Rapids real estate market is made of homes in the Cape Cod and bungalow style which were built in the 1980s. However, there are many newer homes and condominiums in the price range between the low $100,000s and the high $400,000s. Many of these homes have lakefront views and spacious lots for today’s discerning home buyer.
