I may be wrong about this, but it sure seems like some of the best deals on real estate in the Longfellow Community are popping up in the Hiawatha Neighborhood.
For those of you not familiar with the Hiawatha Neighborhood, it’s the neighborhood just north of Minnehaha Falls. Here’s a map:
Here’s an example of why I think Hiawatha has some great deals:
This is at 4525 42nd Ave S, putting it blocks away from Minnehaha Falls (and Sea Salt), the 46th Street LRT station, within short distance of multiple bus lines including at least one that will take you across the river to downtown Highland Park (only 1 mile away, so walkable and bikeable).
Take a look at the pictures. 3 bed. 2 bath. The hardwood floors appear to be in great shape. The kitchen looks awesome. And, it has a 2-car garage. This can be had for $218,900, or something like $1,500/mo with a small amount down.
Is this particular home a good deal at that price? I don’t know. What I’m saying is that homes near Minnehaha Falls are listing for what seems like great deals based on their location and condition.
