What to know about moving in Saint Paul

What’s the cost of living in Saint Paul?

The average Saint Paul resident pays $1,613 a month for their rent, utilities, food, and vehicle fuel.1 This puts Saint Paul at just about the middle of the pack on our list of living costs in highly-populated cities. So while Saint Paul isn’t especially affordable, it isn’t too expensive either. In fact, its living costs are about $40 cheaper than those in nearby Minneapolis.

How much does a home cost in Saint Paul?

The median home value in the Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington metro area was $257,000 in 2021.2 So unlike Saint Paul’s living costs for renters, the city’s home values are on the high end compared to other large metros in the US.

If you’re looking to buy your first home in the near future but Saint Paul’s home values are out of your price range, check out our list of the best cities for first-time homebuyers.

Is Saint Paul growing quickly?

Currently, Saint Paul is growing at a rate of 0.37% a year.3 When compared to the US’s average rate of annual growth (0.9%),4 Saint Paul’s growth rate doesn’t seem very high.

That said, Saint Paul has grown a total of 9.27% over the last decade.3 In that same period, Minnesota as a whole only grew by 6%,5 so the city is one of the fastest-growing in its state.

How much does it cost to hire movers in Saint Paul?

If you hire professional movers, a local move can cost anywhere between $550–$2,000 while long-distance moves range between $2,000–$7,500 or more depending on exactly how far you’re moving and what services you buy.

If these prices are a little too high for your moving budget, you can cut moving costs in a few ways:

  • Gather quotes from multiple moving companies to find the cheapest option.
  • Pack everything in boxes yourself.
  • Downsize before your move.
  • Opt for a more DIY moving service like a moving container move or a truck rental move.
