The Twin Cities Area Real Estate Market

Our general lack of inventory at certain price ranges and locations in the Twin Cities is still creating a frenzy of activity. The first time home buyer market of $175,000 to $300,000 throughout most of Minneapolis/St Paul and suburbs is the most impacted, which is causing multiple offers and short market times. Our inventory of available homes as of August 10th was 12,339 compared to 12,719 last year, which is down 3%. To give you a historical feel of inventory – in 2008, just before our correction, we had almost 36,000 homes for sale. Our pending sales as of August 10th were 1,342, and that is up 3.8% from the same time last year. For the last year our median price is up 6% to $283,950. Our average sale to list price is 99.6% (compared to 99.8% last year), and average days on the market is 38 days. If you are interested in knowing the stats for homes in your area, just let us know.


Weekly Report Information


Lastly, our interest rates went up and down a little from last week and are historically low for 30 year fixed-rate mortgages at 3.375% for VA, 3.25% for FHA and 4.125% for conventional. I even know of a lender who has no or very limited fees at that rate!
