What is the Minnesota MLS?

By clicking on the Minnesota MLS Listings tab, you can filter search results by state, county, property type, price range, bedrooms, bathrooms, building date, square footage, acreage, style and special amenities (like fireplaces, waterfront or lakefront view, 55+ community and golf course property). You’ll then be able to browse pictures, addresses, prices and take virtual tours of MN homes for sale.*

What’s Special About MN Real Estate?
There is much to love about MN real estate. This year, Minnesota is America’s “Healthiest State” for the tenth time since 1990, says the United Health Foundation. The state leads the nation in percentage of health care coverage, has the lowest number of cardiovascular deaths in the country and saw a drastic decline in smoking, as well as child poverty.
A 2005 University of Massachusetts rated Minnesota the “Third Best Place to Work” because of the plentiful job opportunities, job quality and workplace fairness. Top job categories include: Retail / Service (41%), Health Care (23%), Manufacturing (20%), Finance (11%), Energy / Telecommunications (3%) and Computer/ Information Technology (2%). Thirty-three of the United States’ Top 1,000 publicly traded companies are headquartered here in Minnesota, including Target, General Mills, Medtronic, Bancorp, Hormel, Land O’ Lakes, Best Buy and Valspar. Agriculture remains an important staple for residents of MN real estate , seeing as our state is the top exporter of sugar beets, sweet corn, green peas and farm-raised turkeys.
