Woodbury Real Estate Overview

Woodbury, Minnesota, is one of the fastest growing cities in Minnesota. Until the mid-1950s, Woodbury was farmland but as the Twin Cities metro expanded eastward, the city quickly was quickly developed with both residential and commercial construction. Woodbury is now the 10th largest city in Minnesota, and shows no signs of stopping. As a result, Woodbury real estate is in extremely high demand as families move to the St. Croix River Valley area.

Located less than 10 miles southeast of St. Paul, Woodbury is the perfect suburban retreat for those who work in the capital city. However, many Woodbury residents work even closer to home. The Hartford and Target Corporation are located in Woodbury, and 3M, Minnesota’s largest employer, is located in neighboring Maplewood. As the city continues to grow in population, more and more companies are forming their headquarters in and around Woodbury. The strong local economy is just one reason Woodbury is a great place to call home.

While some areas of the city were developed as early as 1960, most Woodbury homes were built in the last 20 years. Those who want a property with minimal renovations required will love Woodbury real estate. Buyers hoping to build a home in the eastern Minnesota suburbs can consider one of the many new construction developments, including Dancing Waters, Ridgestone and Stonemill Farms. Of course, updated condos and luxury townhomes are also available throughout the city.  Woodbury is known for its attractive residential neighborhoods, which are connected by more than 75 miles of multi-use trails and surrounded by 2,000 acres of dedicated park land. Residents have a wide choice of housing, ranging from apartments and townhomes to large-lot estates.SEE PARKS

Why here:There are so many great places to raise kids, but this suburb 10 miles from St. Paul has a lot going for it. Yes, winters are cold (not a small thing), but it’s Minnesota — we’re talking thousands of lakes. Woodbury has 100 miles of trails for hiking and biking, and is a stone’s throw from thousands of acres of parkland. The schools are great, including the Math & Science charter school. 3M employs multitudes, as does state government. What’s not to like? OK, the winters. Deal with it.
