  The city of Minneapolis is clearly on a high velocity path of growth across the entire real estate landscape.  Over the past 20 years the Mill District in downtown Minneapolis has been especially interesting to watch, coming out of the rubble from the old milling capital of the world into a neighborhood and identity all its own.  Some of the last blocks within the neighborhood are being developed right now.  One of these special sites will have world class architecture thanks to Robert A.M. Stern Architects and be the tallest residential high rise in Minneapolis with a story all its own: Eleven on the River.

The Early Years: late 1990s to 2008

  The visionary period of the Mill District started in the late 1990s with the advent of Brighton

Updated Rules for FHA Loans for Minneapolis Lofts and Condos

    For a fleeting moment in 2011 and even into a good part of this year downtown Minneapolis condos and lofts was in question for a financing standpoint.  That's because so many building's FHA status was expiring. 

  This was forcing the homeowners association boards to resubmit updated highly detailed documentation to FHA regarding the finances of their respective building.  One of the questions asked by FHA as part of the approval process involved the amount of renter to owner units in the building.  Another question referenced the amount of commercial to residential square footage of the building.  Still other questions asked about the balance sheet of the building along with the most

During the boom of the market…

IVY Condos Minneapolis Nothing was going to stop the train of development that seemed never ending in downtown Minneapolis in the mid 2000s.  Across the skyline, cranes dotted the urban landscape.  They were a symbol to everyone that something was  happening on that given lot in the city.  

  Enter the IVY Hotel & Condos which began marketing during what some would consider the crest of the wave in Minneapolis urban development during the last decade.  

  Once the project was originally put on the market units were snapped up at record pace.  Rumor on the street was that in a matter of weeks 90% of the units were either reserved or under contract.  Construction on the tower began in earnest.  Then the correction started..

  What was the cost of your last fill-up at the pump? It is no secret that gas prices are at a record high across the country. In 2011, the yearly national average for a gallon of gas was $3.513, a whopping 72.6-cents per gallon higher than the national average price for 2010. This translates to the typical American spending $400 more in 2011 than 2010. Commuting is becoming more and more expensive as the summer months near with per-gallon pricing likely to exceed $5 for regular unleaded. 

  While one solution could be to downsize your inefficient truck or SUV to a more economical commuter, relocating closer to your downtown office could end your gas woes permanently. Condo living in the Mill District, North Loop, and downtown Minneapolis areas is

This couple just purchased a condo in downtown Minneapolis  The evolution of urban living in Minneapolis is taking another interesting turn, here's what we are finding: part of the buyer market is purchasing for part time living purposes and weekend stays versus full time condo living.  These types of buyers are looking for a smaller condo or loft tucked somewhere in an ideal neighborhood within Minneapolis.  They are looking for an urban cabin.

An Urban Cabin?  Say what?

   Over the past 2-3 years the buyer market has changed and become dynamic.  Suddenly the idea of purchasing a condo downtown for full time use doesnt nessesarily make sense for every buyer.  As the baby boomer generation begins the cycle of downsizing from their palacial single family homes in the burbs to high density areas of the city

Through the boom of the early 1980s when downtown was a skyline of cranes busy working on multiple Minneapolis Condo developments numerous buildings surfaced such as The Crossings which tied the skyway system together on the north end of the city.  There was also the crossings_condos_400dramatic Loring Green East and West at the south end of Nicollet Mall which was a massive project consisting of well over 500+ total units.  On the other side of the river a 170 year old Kajima Corporation started work on La Rive in Northeast Minneapolis. 

  These buildings have stood the test of time but with anything starts to become dated as soon as construction is complete. 

  Recently homeowners associations have become keen to updating their common area elements with greater

  Yesterday I wrote an offer for a buyer client on a Minneapolis Condo that we knew the seller already had multiple offers.  Multiple offers in this real estate market you ask?  Yes and the trend will begin to ripple across the market as we see new listings drop (-16.1%), pending sales increase (11%) and closed sales increase (8%) year over year.

  The North Loop condo was priced right--arguably under market value, in a financially healthy building with good resale trends.  There were already 3 offers on the condo and our strategy was to offer 5% above list price with zero closing costs and non-refundable earnest money to combat the fact that the buyer was financing some of the purchase price as opposed to a cash offer to sweeten the deal.

  Last week was quite busy in the Minneapolis Condo market-two very large purchases were made.  One in multiple offers at the Washburn Lofts in the MIll District and the other at Phoenix on the River.   

  Washburn Lofts was part of the Washburn-Crosby Mills from long ago that was turned to lofts in the early 2000s before the Minneapolis Condo boom took hold of the area--the Mill District was still coming together as a neighborhood from a previous life as a heavy industrial area.  The extremely well appointed, multi million dollar unit under contract in the building is on the top floor which includes an outdoor terrrace that measures roughly 3200 square feet.  The lot has fantastic downtown and riverviews of the city making it a rarity in the upper

  The subject heading reads list an update on Facebook or Google+, its not every day that you hear about a condo building in Minneapolis getting solar panels.  But thats exactly what is going on over at the Lofts on Arts Avenue right off 3rd Ave downtown in the Stevens neighborhood.  The condo owners of the building decided to spring for solar panels which will cover most of the roof of the building.  Doing an improvement of this size is not cheap.  The homeowners association saved quite some time for a major capital improvement like this--and they needed a majority to approve the spending measure.  Tough the panels have not been installed as of yet, (9.20.11), here is the plan:
