Another great rating for Minneapolis

Minneapolis was recently ranked #5 on the MSN Real Estate “Most-Livable Bargain Markets.” The 100 largest U.S. metro areas were evaluated to determine the 10 most livable areas indicated by low unemployment, shorter commute times and a concentration of entertainment and cultural activities. Affordability was defined by the ratio of median income to median home price.

This is great news for our city. These are also things that we already know about Minneapolis but ratings and studies like this just reiterate the importance of continued investment in our city. And though times are tough economically, Minneapolis clearly has a lot to offer. As we continue to invest in public transit, job training and workforce development and the arts, the Twin Cities will become even more livable.
