Online PR News – 28-April-2011 – – Minneapolis, MN - As employees seek to cut their cost of living and take advantage of the amenities available in urban centers, new demand is being created for Minneapolis condos and lofts, according to a local real estate agent.
Ben Ganje, who specializes in downtown Minneapolis real estate, says he has noticed a movement of former commuters moving into the city center.
"Minneapolis is known for being one of the best urban spaces in the country, and it's starting to really catch on how nice it is. In fact, I'm seeing more and more young couples deciding to raise a family here."
Ganje is one of them, so it's no coincidence that he calls himself the Urban Dad. He says that with great schools, nice restaurants, and amazing views of Minneapolis' famed urban rivers, the urban lifestyle has a lot going for it. Add to that the desire to save a lot of money by buying foreclosures and bank owned properties, and he says buyers have good reason to want to move downtown.
"Minneapolis lofts make a great home for first time home buyers who work here in the city. Prices are at historical lows right now, so it's not only a smart lifestyle choice, but can be a great financial move as well."
Ganje also says that skyrocketing gas prices are contributing to the move to live downtown as commuters find ways to get closer to their places of employment.
"I'm finding that people are thinking twice about living so far away from their jobs. For those who think outside of the suburban box, moving to downtown Minneapolis makes a lot of sense."
