St. Paul Neighborhoods

Where would you like to live? Not an easy decision, and it is a personal decision. As a Realtor I can’t recommend a neighborhood or recommend against one. It is against the law.

Here are some links and resources for information about St. Paul neighborhoods.

Every month I list average home sale prices in St. Paul by neighborhood, it is a good starting point for determining affordability. The numbers I have go back a few years. Check the local prices and market conditions too.

Friends and family can sometimes recommend a neighborhood too. For more information about how walkable a neighborhood is I have a link on the side bar to a site that provides a walk score. A buyer can put in the address of a home and find out what is near the home. A zip code can be used to find out more about a larger area.

Walking through a neighborhood or even driving it a great way to find out more. If crime rates are a concern St. Paul has a grid system. The city is split into 12 block grids and crime rates are available for each grid through the St. Paul Police web site.

St. Paul has a district council system. Each neighborhood has a district council and they are a wonderful resource for St. Paul residents and for people who want to learn more about neighborhoods. Responsibilities of the councils include: planning and advising on the physical, economic, and social development of their areas; identifying needs; initiating community programs; recruiting volunteers; and sponsoring community events.
