Everyone has different levels of what they feel is "safe". I always recommend that my clients research this on their own.

The City of Minneapolis has a great resource on their website. I would start there, and then also check with the local area newspaper. ... more

Hi Pete,

Safe is a relative term and means different things to different people.

One aspect of safety could be measured in the amount of crime in an area.

Here is a link to recent crime maps in Minneapolis:

I hope this helps.

As most information for this site, the aggregate data from several sources. One is usually the county tax data. If there was a change in the deed, refinance, name change/marriage, etc the property will show as transferring (of some sort). It depends on how that county records their properties. Because of this, you see things similar to what most real estate websites call sales. Our county is notorious for having "sales" when all that actually happened was the buyer/owner cleaning up their deed information. ... more

You should probably focus your search on Richfield, South Minneapolis, Bloomington, Burnsville, Eagan, Apple Valley.

There's a lot of folks who work in downtown Minneapolis (9-5 M-F) who use the mass transit options which are excellent in Burnsville, Apple Valley, Bloomington. But you would still be within 30 minutes of downtown. Check out

Personally I would find the prospects of driving from Brooklyn Park to Bloomington to be quickly tedious.

Keep in mind that opinions are often suggestive--as for crime--your best source of information is the local police department--why not visit/call and ask all your questions; as for the schools--what may be good one is not necessarily the case for another--why not visit the district, ask for a tour of the facilities, speak to the principal, teachers, etc.---and as far as neighborhood--drive through more than once and at different times of day, check out the shops, dine at a local eatery, chat with locals if the opportunity arises, etc., and then make a determination--will your comfort level be reached. ... more

It depends on the area, and some other factors. But if you do a search on craigslist, you will see many units.

Hi Amanda,

The Keewaydin neighborhood can be pretty far reaching depending on who you talk to :) If you're speaking about the area close to Lake Nokomis, it is both a safe area and a great place to raise a family. Resale is generally good in the area, as long as you choose your location and type of home wisely.

Let me know if you were talking about a different specific area and hopefully I can shed some light on the neighborhood. If you have any other real estate or neighborhood questions, feel free to contact at any time.
