Did you know there are some very affordable single family Duluth homes for sale on Lake Superior, all within the Duluth city limits? Take a drive through Canal Park to Minnesota Avenue, and you will find some excellent bargains priced under 300K. In fact, at the time of this post, there was a two story on Minnesota Avenue for sale for only $229,900. What makes this so interesting is the fact that there is one just down the road from this one selling for just under 2M. Does this sound like an “inconsistent” neighborhood? There is tremendous variation on prices, but some of these sort of neighborhoods are in transition. Cheaper, older homes are being replaced by more upscale properties.
On your way out of Duluth on Highway 61, you may have noticed the variety of nice Lake Superior lakeshore homes for sale along North Shore Drive. You may be surprised to discover that some of these homes sell in the 300-400K price range, and include stately tudors and Victorians.
