Last week, MHP released a new report examining more than 1,000 apartment property sales in the Twin Cities region over the past decade. Sold Out reveals that a hot rental market is putting many metro renters at risk of displacement — and includes the experiences of renters like Bernard Campbell, a former tenant of the Crossroads at Penn (now Concierge Apartments) in Richfield.
Bernard's story was reported by Karlee Weinmann.
Marriage and homeownership were at the top of Bernard Campbell’s to-do list until the Crossroads at Penn complex in Richfield changed hands.
The deal, he said, pushed his priorities out the window. Tripped up by more stringent requirements for renters at the complex, imposed by its new owners, Campbell and his fiancée had to set aside their plans in favor of finding new housing. Now, they’re trying to be patient while they reconfigure their future together.
“It’s been a complete nightmare,” Campbell said.
