Woodbury Real Estate Overview
Woodbury, Minnesota, is one of the fastest growing cities in Minnesota. Until the mid-1950s, Woodbury was farmland but as the Twin Cities metro expanded eastward, the city quickly was quickly developed with both residential and commercial construction. Woodbury is now the 10th largest city in Minnesota, and shows no signs of stopping. As a result, Woodbury real estate is in extremely high demand as families move to the St. Croix River Valley area.
Located less than 10 miles southeast of St. Paul, Woodbury is the perfect suburban retreat for those who work in the capital city. However, many Woodbury residents work even closer to home. The Hartford and Target Corporation are located in Woodbury, and 3M, Minnesota’s largest employer, is located in neighboring Maplewood. As the city continues to grow in population, more and more companies are forming their headquarters in and around Woodbury. The strong local economy is just one reason Woodbury is a great place to call home.
While some areas of the city were developed as early as 1960, most Woodbury homes were built in the last 20 years. Those who want a property with minimal renovations required will love Woodbury real estate. Buyers hoping to build a home in the eastern Minnesota suburbs can consider one of the many new construction developments, including Dancing Waters, Orchard Ridge Trails and Ashwood of Woodbury. Of course, updated condos and luxury townhomes are also available throughout the city.
