Looks like we'll likely be relocating from the NE side of the cities to the SW side since my wife has been working in St. Louis Park for the last year. She teaches near the intersection of Excelsior and 100. I work from NYC, home, or out of a coworking space in st paul, but lucky for me I can also work out of the alternate coworking space in Uptown. We're scouring St. Louis Park (small houses/high prices) and Golden Valley, but also casually looking at Edina ($$$), Minnetonka, & Chanhassen. We have friends just off Lyndale in Minneapolis, but aren't quite willing to give up the idea of having a yard, especially for the price of those particular houses. Any advice/insight on the area would be much appreciated. St. Louis Park would be ideal, but it's pretty hard to find a 4 bedroom, 3 bath house with 2 car garage (I do not want to scrape my car every morning...), at least in our price range.
