Homes for sale in Woodbury MN vs Cottage Grove MN?

This is a question some people have to ask themselves when buying a home in the east Metro of the Twin Cities. Woodbury MN vs Cottage Grove MN can be tough or not.  There are a few differences that have come up when I have spoke to clients about this and let’s go through them.

Homes for sale in Woodbury MN vs Cottage Grove MN (Price)

This is the biggest when it comes to buying a home for sale in these areas.  Woodbury MN is bigger in population and city services and most other things making it more desirable depending on what you value.  Woodbury has more restaurants, shops and other features that Cottage Grove MN doesn’t have.

With all these great things, it drives the price of a new home up.  Most first time homebuyer homes will be over the 250k range for a smaller older home.  Cottage Grove MN on the other hand being less popular has more options for the first time home buyer in the under 250k range.

Some people that prefer a newer home but won’t move to Cottage Grove MN or Oakdale go with a Townhome in these Woodbury MN.

Homes for sale in Woodbury MN vs Cottage Grove MN (Schools)

People have told me that they prefer Woodbury MN schools over Cottage Grove.  Now I have also heard from die hard Cottage Grove park High School parents that their kids will only go to Park.  The truth is that you have to check the schools out for yourself.  Parts of Cottage Grove go to Woodbury’s Eastridge High School.

Homes for sale in Woodbury MN vs Cottage Grove MN (My Choice)

When I first moved here I bought a home in Woodbury MN.  I also then bought a 2nd home in Cottage Grove as an investment.  Later down the road I switched the homes and the one in Woodbury MN became my rental and the one in Cottage Grove became my home.  This being said I do most of my shopping and restaurant activities in Woodbury MN.  I have found the Cottage Grove Elementary School to be great with my kids.  I am in a part of Cottage Grove that my kids at the moment will go to East Ridge High School.   I do like the smaller town feel to Cottage grove and the lack of stop lights over Woodbury MN.  The property taxes used to be cheaper but that has changed since Cottage Grove is growing.  My dollar went further in Cottage Grove and I believe that is still true to this day but you will have to research below and tell me what you think.
