Lino Lakes in Anoka County, MN was a great place to scout out a great deal on lakeshore or acreage in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area north metro during the second quarter of 2009. Directly impacted by the promise of an $8000 tax credit for first time buyers, bank owned and lender mediated properties flew off the Lino Lakes market. Traditional homes also saw an upswing in sales in the lower price points…heck in almost every price point. Even townhomes in this area have started to sell at a quicker pace, though not at higher prices.
Lino Lakes has a good mixture of lakeshore, acreage and townhome residences but is more known for having a bit of space between the houses. It conveniently located near the junction of the 35E and 35W split, just north of the Twin Cities, Lino Lakes is a 33 square miles treasure. With 13 lakes and acres of beautiful protected wetland, the community is served by three school districts; Centennial District #12, Forest Lake District #831, and White Bear Lake District #624. The gem attraction is the pristine 2,700-acre Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Regional Park Reserve is situated within the heart of the city. Lino Lakes is committed to maintain this treasure and its natural settings and wildlife habitats for years to come.
Lino Lakes single family homes in the low price points did not lingering on the market during the second quarter.
