With a population of about 19,000 residents, the Anoka MN real estate market is ideal for home buyers looking for a new home for their family. Anoka has been called the “Halloween Capital of the World” because it is the home of the first Halloween party which occurred in 1920. Our family enjoys living in our Anoka home because of the many parks throughout the city. Rick Sorensen Park is one of our favorites with its lush green areas for the kids to play and it’s ideal for having a family picnic. But there are other parks like Goodrich Field and the Rum River Nature area, just to name a couple.
As parents, the Anoka schools were also important in making our decision. As part of the Anoka-Hennepin School District, there are several top rated schools in the city, including Anoka Senior High School, Ramsey Elementary School and Wilson Elementary School.
The neighborhoods in the Anoka real estate market are near beautiful parks and the scenic Mississippi River. Cutters Grove is just one of these neighborhoods and it is just a short distance from the lush and challenging Greenhaven Golf Course and the Mississippi River Community Park. In addition, the Cressy Addition subdivision is a convenient place to live in the area as it is just across the street from Anoka High School and Fred Moore Middle School. Other Anoka real estate neighborhoods include Greenhaven and Mineral Pond.
The majority of homes that are available in the Anoka MN real estate market cost between $100,000 and $300,000. Many of these homes are built in the Cape Cod style which was made popular in the 1920s. However, you can also find multi-level homes customized towards today’s way of life within your price range.
