Real Estate Update ─ Market Remains Strong

Twin Cities Metro Home Sales and Prices are Up

While a normal seasonal slowdown is underway for Twin Cities Metro home sales, it is still a seller’s market. Demand is especially strong for homes in the $190,000 – $250,000 price range, followed by mid-range homes priced from $250,000 to $350,000. An overview:

  • Home sales are up ─ Twin Cities Metro home sales have increased by 5.7 percent over September 2015, according to the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors.
  • Homes are selling faster – 56 days was the average time for homes to sell last month, which is a “13.8 percent decline from last year and only two days away from the record low set in 2007,” according to Jim Buchta of the Star Tribune
  • Home prices are increasing – up 3.6 percent from a year ago
  • Buying conditions remain prime ─ mortgage rates are hovering near all-time lows and job growth has been strong.
    Note: Mortgage rates can vary all day every day by individual. Contact Bob Strandell for more information.
