Weekly Real Estate Update
August 21, 2012


Do you hear that? It’s the sound of carts shifting through the back-to-school aisles, filling quickly with notebooks and pencils and glue. It’s the sound of teenagers shuffling through dorms and down storied lanes on their first college orientation. It’s the sound of young professionals readying themselves for their first big job, freshly tailored. It’s the sound of a family preparing for the leap from the overcrowded apartment to the “starter” home that will see their first child into high school. There’s a lot of activity taking place as we move towards the fall season. The housing market continues to be active as well.

In the Twin Cities region, for the week ending August 11:
• New Listings increased 2.0% to 1,387
• Pending Sales increased 31.2% to 1,149
• Inventory decreased 29.6% to 16,982

For the month of July:
• Median Sales Price increased 13.7% to $179,000
• Days on Market decreased 27.8% to 106
• Percent of Original List Price Received increased 3.6% to 95.0%
• Months Supply of Inventory decreased 42.8% to 4.3

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue

This week’s photo challenge on the The Daily Post is ‘Blue’. So many images come to mind with this word. The sky. Water. Cobalt blue glass. Pottery. Coldwell Banker Burnet real estate signs. The blue jay. Blueberries. Hydrangeas. Where to begin? Let‘s start here:

This, to me, is quintessential blue; the beloved blue jean.

Former Railroad Bridge—Now Midtown Greenway Trail

Bridge Photo for October 13, 2010

This channel lies between Lake of the Isles and Lake Calhoun. Bikers, walkers, runners, and others make use of the trails and paths that surround the lakes. People travel this waterway by canoe, paddle boats, and kayaks during warm weather months. In winter months, people take advantage of these frozen, open spaces for walking, ice skating, cross-country skiing, and other activities.

Entry/Foyer with view to living spaces

Balcony with view of trees

I love the interior window above the vanity. It allows natural light into what would be a windowless space without it. I think this is a great design feature and wish more developers would make use of it. This bath also features a soaking tub and a separate shower with glass-framed surround.

 

This exercise room is one of the building amenities.
