Real Estate Update

Weekly Real Estate Update
August 14, 2012

Let’s admit it: It’s been nice to have a year of positive headlines in the residential real estate industry. There have been more sales for more money in most markets across the country, and the foreclosure situation, although not entirely in the rearview mirror, has abated. We’re now entering the months of 2012 that should offer a true test of the lasting power of this buyer-seller tryst. A drop off in buyer and seller activity might be expected after so many months of bliss, but the feeling remains that the market will survive beyond the honeymoon phase.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending August 4:

• New Listings decreased 0.1% to 1,433
• Pending Sales increased 20.4% to 1,129
• Inventory decreased 29.6% to 17,085

For the month of July:

• Median Sales Price increased 14.2% to $179,900
• Days on Market decreased 27.8% to 105
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 3.6% to 95.0%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 43.4% to 4.3

As reported by the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors
