Where houses sell fast: Mac-Groveland

  • Updated: May 14, 2012 - 2:13 PM

The Macalester-Groveland neighborhood in St. Paul is a perennial favorite among buyers who want easy access to both downtowns as well as restaurants, shops and spectacular parks. In fact, the neighborhood is bordered on one side by the shady paths that follow the Mississippi River. That’s why the average market time for all home sales last year was only 103 days, about 30 percent fewer days than the metrowide average. Buyers love the neighborhood because there’s a range of housing stock, including tidy starter bungalows, all the way up to stately Tudor-style houses that sell for more than $1 million.
