Say it with us...Goodbye 2020! Ringing in the New Year can be exciting—it's a time for new beginnings, which is something that, after a difficult 2020, most of us are looking forward to.

Hello again! What's our theme for this month's recap? Let's just say things got interesting...

We knew there was potential for November numbers to be unique-- a presidential election, COVID spikes across the nation (particularly right here in the Twin Cities), and the entry to winter. What we didn't know was whether or not this progressing Seller’s market could help out buyer demand by going against historical November slow downs, and provide a healthy amount of listings to hopefully balance things out. Did that happen?

No. No it did not...

November 2020 brought some of the steepest dips we've seen all year. While normally this wouldn't be a huge surprise, considering the market almost always slows down toward the holidays, it seems surprising…
