Weekly Real Estate Update
October 23, 2012


Housing pessimism is as out of fashion nowadays as bell bottoms and shoulder pads. Those who are still fishing for that elusive “market bottom” have likely missed it in most areas. The major story continues to be tightened inventory and high buyer turnout. Homes should be selling faster and for closer to list price – or even above in the hottest neighborhoods. Continue to monitor key differences between the foreclosure and traditional segments as well as variability between the single-family and condo markets.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending October 13:
• New Listings increased 7.3% to 1,252
• Pending Sales increased 26.7% to 954
• Inventory decreased 28.8% to 16,017

For the month of September:
• Median Sales Price increased 12.6% to $174,500
• Days on Market decreased 28.4% to 101
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 4.0% to 94.8%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 39.6% to 4.1

As reported by the Minneapolis Area Association of Realtors

May 2012

We’re nearly through the spring market, did you blink and miss it? Important changes have taken place, the sort of changes that will set the scene for the coming months and years. For the 12-month period spanning June 2011 through May 2012, Pending Sales in the Twin Cities region were up 26.7 percent overall. The price range with the largest gain in sales was the $120,000 and Below range, where they increased 33.8 percent.

The overall Median Sales Price was down 3.8 percent to $154,000. The property type with the smallest price decline was the Single-Family segment, where prices decreased 3.4 percent to $170,000. The price range that tended to sell the quickest was the $190,001 to $250,000 range at 131 days; the price range that tended to sell the slowest was the $1,000,001 and Above range at 277 days.

Market-wide, inventory levels were down 31.1 percent. The property type that lost the least inventory was the Single-Family segment, where it decreased 27.5 percent. That amounts to 4.6 months supply for Single-Family Detached homes and 5.4 months supply for Condos.

Weekly Real Estate Update
June 4, 2012


Although the latest jobs report was less than exciting for those waiting for economic recovery to cast a warming glow all across the land, the residential real estate market continued to jog along at a nice pace, as though earbuds were drowning out the din of negative energies trying to dissuade healthy activity. For the most recent week, buyer activity was higher than year-ago levels while listing activity registered lower. Keep watching inventory and sales activity throughout the summer to see if this runner’s high will continue into fall.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending May 26:
• New Listings decreased 8.5% to 1,387
• Pending Sales increased 19.2% to 1,231
• Inventory decreased 29.8% to 17,740

For the month of April:
• Median Sales Price increased 12.1% to $162,500
• Days on Market decreased 15.2% to 135
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 3.7% to 93.4%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 41.7% to 4.8

Weekly Real Estate Update
May 29, 2012


The tempo in residential housing has remained upbeat through the first five months of 2012. Year-to-date figures begin to sing a compelling tune at this time of year, and the song thus far is that markets are moving back toward balance and home prices are beginning to reflect that stabilization. For the most recent week, buyer activity was higher than year-ago levels while listing activity registered lower. Keep an eye on months supply, seller concessions, market times and foreclosure rates. Multiple offers are back and tentative owners looking to move should take note. It’s okay to sing in public again.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending May 19:
• New Listings decreased 9.6% to 1,533
• Pending Sales increased 18.6% to 1,116
• Inventory decreased 29.4% to 17,648

For the month of April:
• Median Sales Price increased 12.1% to $162,500
• Days on Market decreased 15.2% to 135
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 3.6% to 93.4%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 42.0% to 4.8
