Edina Real Estate
If you are looking for a first-tier Minneapolis suburb with a national reputation for high quality of life, distinctive homes, excellent schools, and neighborhoods that reflect pride of ownership, Edina is the first place that comes to mind. How do we know this? We frequently get calls from places like New York and California from people who want information about the Edina real estate market. (Frequently, they mispronounce it “Edeena,” which is understandable.) They have read about it in national publications that highlight the fine living, shopping areas, parks, and of course, the homes that are found in this area.

According to the Northstar Regional MLS statistics, the average year-built for Edina real estate listings currently available is 1965. This is because Edina is a fully developed community with a number of homes that were built in the 1940’s. Wait a minute…. the1940’s? That was the WWII era. Wasn’t that the era of shoddy real estate construction?
That’s right, but it is was not true for Edina real estate. . Edina has always been vigilant about maintaining the quality of its housing and neighborhoods. If you want to be sure about this, check out some of the gorgeous estate homes in the prestigious White Oaks neighborhood. But call ahead first. If you time it right, you may be able to check out one of those 6000+ square foot stately mansions on almost a full acre of a hilltop setting. When you see the classic architecture and detailed craftsmanship, you will have all of the assurance you need to see the value in these $2-3M executive Edina real estate listings.
The starter homes in Edina are no exception. The Normandale addition features some fine bungalows and ramblers from the 1940’s. It is still possible to find some under 300k. Our relocation clients from the east and west coast are amazed to see that Edina is still affordable for everyone. If you are looking for something built in the 1960’s, be assured that the quality carried over into this era as well. There are some great opportunities for two stories, Cape Cods, and ramblers in the 300-700k range available in neighborhoods like Kemrich Knolls, Iroquois Hills, and the Edina Lake Addition.
Although Edina MN is classified as a fully developed community, there are still some opportunities for brand new construction. But don’t dawdle! Edina has always been a hot market, and new construction opportunities are limited. Check out Parkwood Knolls for an AM Stern inspired estate on a small pondside acreage, and a luxury home boasting a whopping 9,000+ square foot home. The $4+M price tags out here include mahogany walls and professional kitchen with a caterer’s pantry. Edina luxury homes like these give this city its reputation for fine living.
Because of the high value of the land, we can also show you some excellent completed renovation projects. But be sure to call ahead; some of these might not be on the MLS yet. I know these neighborhoods and I would be happy to do some advance scouting for you. The best homes go first, and I want to make sure you get the jump on them.
If you are looking for luxury single-level Edina townhomes, luxury condos, or just a small condo for summering in Minnesota, I can find those too. You will admire my tenacity for finding townhomes for folks with special needs like handicap accessibility or heated underground parking.
