"Cheap Housing in a Hard Hit Community"

An abundance of foreclosures have left many properties vacant at very affordable sale and rental prices. This northern Minneapolis neighborhood is next to the Mississippi River and provides quick access to other parts of the metropolitan area via I-94. Fairview Park offers some outdoor recreation and is located at the very center of the community. This area is close to the Warehouse District and its smaller neighborhoods located across the Mississippi as well as North Loop. Hawthorne has very few dining, retail and entertainment spots, but residents only have to travel less than a mile to downtown for everything they could need.

The Hawthorne neighborhood is a work in progress since hard economic times have made it a place of crime and poverty. There are efforts, however, to rebuild the community into an affordable and enjoyable place to live. Hawthorne is a wise investment for those who want to spend little money to buy a house and then have the property value increase over time as the neighborhood undergoes revitalization. Several local businesses dot the streets, but Hawthorne is mainly a residential area. Those looking to buy or rent their first house or those who simply wish to pinch pennies have numerous options with all the properties that are still vacant within this community. Residents should be weary of the occasional suspicious activity.
Pros
  • Affordable housing
  • Close to downtown
  • Revitalization
Cons
  • High crime and poverty
  • Few retail spots
