Medina Homes for Sale

Now a western suburb of Minneapolis, Medina was carved out of the “Big Woods,” a vast area of deciduous woodland interspersed with lakes, wetlands and streams. First settled by European immigrants in 1855, Medina was a bustling town at the beginning of the 20th century. Once State Highway 55 bypassed it in the 1950s, the town initially lost residents; however, since the year 2000, the population has grown by over 22%. The city’s affluence is reflected by its median house value of $480,000 and median household income of almost $120,000. Indeed, over 30% of Medina households have an income of over $200K. Half of its labor force has a Bachelor’s Degree or higher, making it one of the best educated towns in Minnesota. Medina incorporated as a city in 1974.
