Rent to Own Homes near Maplewood, MN

  • Dakota Indians roamed the slight hills of the forested plain that is now Maplewood long before shopping malls and cul-de-sacs. The green spaces recall that landscape that is now part of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. About 39,000 people call the town home, which grew from an 1850s stagecoach stop to an incorporated village in 1957. The company 3M is headquartered here, leading to the nickname "Home of the Post-It Note."

Top 4 Reasons to Live in Maplewood, MN

  • Stable and strong housing market! After recovering from the real estate downturn, Maplewood has stabilized, settling in between a buyer's and seller's market. Growth in the median list price has been marginal through 2014 but is picking up. That points to opportunity for people seeking rent to own arrangements. Live near shopping centers like Maplewood Mall or near green space like Battle Creek Regional Park. While looking, grab a fantastic cup of joe at Caribou Coffee.
  • Lake for leisure! With a nice public beach, Lake Phalen is a favorite hangout in high summer. It's an urban lake that is a popular fishing spot with boating and sailing, as well. Phalen Creek drains from the lake and follows a short path to the Mississippi River. Battle Creek Upper Afton is another pristine green space in Maplewood, and there are several neighborhood parks in the area, too.
  • Hit the golf course or the roller rink! Try the greens at several golf courses in and around town. Hillcrest Golf Club of St. Paul, Manitou Ridge Golf Course, Keller Golf Course, and Oak Marsh Golf Course all offer playing holes. If that's not your game, perhaps you're more interested in the local skating rink. Saints North Inline & Roller Skating Center lets you lace up and go. If you prefer your skating to be a blade gliding over ice, Aldrich Ice Arena is the place to be. Of course, several area lakes allow for outdoor ice skating, too.
  • Affordable homes! With an average selling price of $180,817 near the end of 2014, the community is a great place to find homes at a reasonable cost. Convenient to both I-94 and I-694, commuters have easy routes to the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. The combination of livable neighborhoods and lots of green space at places like the Maplewood Nature Center make coming home easy. Delectable places to eat, like Green Mill Restaurant and Bar, add to the charm.
