It’s heeeeere! The spookiest month is upon us and, naturally, there is lots of stuff to do in Duluth. We’ve chosen a few events for you to check out.

There’s something haunted bobbing around in the lake in Duluth and you’re invited to check it out.

Sure, we have some expensive homes, but we also have a whole bunch of homes priced just right for first-time homebuyers in Duluth. This week we thought it’d be fun to see what $200,000 would buy in our fair city.

There is only one home priced right at $200,000 but several are listed right around that price point.


What a great neighborhood this is, especially if you love being close to nature. This is a traditional home, built in 1922, with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2,312 square feet of living space. It features hardwood floors inside and a 2-car garage, deck and patio outdoors. This home is priced at $199,900.

Lincoln Park is among the newest of Duluth’s schools, built in 2012, and it features some gorgeous architectural elements. The school serves nearly 500 students in grades 6 through 8 and employs 41 full-time teachers, giving it a student/teacher ratio of about 11:1.

September is in full swing as the summer real estate market is set for its annual slowdown. The Duluth market, however, shows no signs of going quietly into fall. This week we take a look at three of Duluth’s hottest real estate listings.

Downtown, with a View!

This 1949 charmer features two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,794 square feet of living space. What will sell you, however, is the amazing view of the lake and downtown lights. Updates include a newer furnace, a new roof over the garage, dishwasher, floor coverings and more.

The deck is out in front, to take advantage of the views and there’s a 3-season room out back. With four garage stalls and a work shop, this home is unbelievably priced at $159,900.
