AFFORDABLE Homes on Minnesota Lakeshore! (Under $400K...some way under too!)

Are there affordable lakeshore homes in Anoka County? You betcha!

I checked the multiple listing service (MLS) in the Minneapolis/St Paul area today (July 17, 2014) and found a baker's dozen lakeshore homes priced at less than $400K. This doesn't see like a lot but we are talking affordable lakeshore here. Some are as close as Coon Rapids and a few are further out in Ramsey and Nowthen but all are homes have shoreline on one of Minnesota's 10,000 Lakes.

And you don't have to break the bank either. There is a cute one bedroom cabin on Martin Lake with 50 feet of shoreline for under $90,000. Need a bigger home? There's a spacious two story on Ham Lake with a 100 foot shore for $350K. Looking for a one level home? There is one on Coon Lake with 2BR/2BA with 100 ft shore for just under $275K. And there is even one just minutes from Minneapolis on Crooked Lake in Coon Rapids for $210,000. 

If you are interested in Minnesota lakeshore, there are properties in every price range. There are hundreds of options more over $400K throughout the state but that is not affordable to most. These lower priced options often are on full rec lakes where you can boat, fish, jet ski, but they might not have the perfect sandy beach or executive style home. Sometimes they are perfect inside but have a channel shore line while others might be in need of updates. But they are an affordable way of getting a home on the lake.
