Residential Housing

Few areas offer the variety of living choices available in the Forest Lake Area, and even fewer offer them so affordably.

A number of factors make the community attractive to new residents, not the least of which is the fact that, typically, both rents and mortgages compare favorably to national averages. A wide variety of housing types, including lake homes and homes on rural acreage, brings families at all stages in their lives together, and nearby services, shopping, recreation and employment makes the quality of life in the Forest Lake Area even more appealing.

Quality public safety is supplied through the Forest Lake Police and Fire departments, which provide 24-hour service to the area. Currently, the police department includes 24 full-time and five part-time officers. Forest Lake’s 30- member volunteer fire department serves an area of about 100 square miles and responds to approximately 350 alarms a year. Immediate police and fire response for all Forest Lake Area communities is available through the 911 emergency system.
