Is Saint Cloud Real Estate a Sound Investment?
The real estate mantra has always been “location, location, location”. Savvy real estate investors take note of the fact that St. Cloud is strategically located on the northwest end of the Interstate 94 corridor to Minneapolis. This corridor is expected to continue to see new developments and an increasing population. The city is already growing. As the Twin Cities suburban sprawl keeps moving this way, the population will grow even faster. You don’t have to be Warren Buffet to realize that the value of St Cloud homes will be progressed and protected by an inevitable spike in demand for real estate. An investment in a St. Cloud Minnesota home is an investment in the future.
St. Cloud MN is the only major economic center to be found between the Twin Cities and Fargo. As home to about 64,000 residents, it is the third largest city in the state outside of the Twin Cities. It overlaps three large counties, including Benton, Stearns, and Sherburne, and is the seat for Stearns County. Purchase a Saint Cloud MN home, and you will enjoy the convenience of living just an hour from the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
The top-notch municipal services and many amenities found here also fuel demand for St Cloud real estate. The Mississippi river transects the city and graces it with green and leafy river banks, and provide the perfect place for city parks. Munsinger Gardens, the crown-jewel of the city park system is found along the eastern banks of the Mississippi River. Visitors can savor tranquil respite here among an eclectic mix of hostas and ferns. Parts of the garden include the original greenhouse, rock garden, lily pond and fountain. This beautiful garden that we enjoy today was created as part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Works Administration (WPA,) the “economic stimulus” plan of the time.
Saint Cloud is best known as the home of St. Cloud State University, the largest member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system and the second largest state college. In addition to providing education for state residents, SCSU attracts about 11,000 students from 80 different counties.
