Minnesota real estate weekly update



This is the Minnesota real estate weekly update for March 10th, 2023. We have a Minnesota real estate market that is predicted to appreciate 5.6% this year in 2023. Our spring market is here look for the spring “bump” in prices and an increase in buyers in the real estate market.



We review real estate facts and future trends.


The trends


We are now in our spring real estate season and as the result of low inventory we are back into a seller’s market. This means we have lower than needed homes for sale for the number of buyers in the marketplace. Look for multiple offers and short times for homes to be available. You should strongly consider working with an experienced real estate agent to give you an edge in this market whether it is buying or selling. Experience is priceless!


The facts


Here are current facts for our Minnesota real estate market. Our current housing affordability Index for Minnesota real estate for January was 135, and this compares to 177 this same time last year. The higher the number means the greater home buying affordability in the Twin Cities. Our current inventory of homes for sale is 5,735. In comparison, we had 4,982 at this time in 2022. So, the inventory of homes for sale is up 15.1% from last year. A point of interest, in 2009 at the time of our first real estate correction in Minnesota in 40 years, we had over 36,000 homes for sale in the seven county Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Minnesota real estate pending sales for the last week, which have sold but not yet closed, was 744. That compares to 972 pending home sales last year. That is a decrease of 23.5% from the same week last year. An average real estate market would have a three-month supply of housing inventory and we have 1.4 months (January). Last year it was a .9 months’ supply. Days on the market was 60 days average in January compared to 41 days last year at the same time.


More facts


Minnesota seller’s benefit financially when real estate values rise. The median sales price (January) increased by 2.7% since this time last year. $342,000 is now the median sales price in the Twin Cities area. A market health indicator is the comparison of our sales price to original list price. For January, the average sale to list price was 96%. And that compares to 99.6% in 2022.

Our current interest rates in the Twin Cities


Interest rates have now stabilized and look for rates to stay the same or go slightly down in 2023. Rates are in the mid 6% for conventional and about 6% for FHA/VA mortgages. Just reach out to me if you need contact information of a lender with those interest rates.


My opinion of the future of Minnesota real estate


Our interest rates will not decrease this spring and summer.  With our low inventory of homes we will have a seller’s market and that will continue at least until next holiday season.

This is a suitable time to discuss your housing needs for 2023!
