Is the market as stone cold as the season? It is true that the pool of buyers is smaller in the winter, and many homeowners follow suit. As temperatures drop, the sun sets earlier, and white blankets cover yards, you might think it would deter buyers. 

But, not the determined ones. Read below and you might just warm up to the idea of selling in such an opportune market. 

  • Foot Traffic: Not everyone is going to trot out in below zero weather for a showing. However, houses on the market at this time of year tend to sell quicker, because there is a surplus of serious buyers. The boot marks up to your door may be few, but in our experience they do mean business. 

  • Corporate Relocations: January is the peak time for corporate…

Hello, and welcome to another market recap, brought to you by VIBE Realty. This is a place where we analyze the Twin Cities real estate market from month-to-month, and break it down to try to better understand what's actually happening in our market. If you've been following along at all, you know it's been getting very interesting, as it appears the market has begun to shift in a different direction. We were anticipating October to bring us some interesting data once the numbers were available, and did it ever...let's examine. 

Normally I would highlight the most extreme change somewhere in the body or towards the end of this, but this time it's really a big deal, so I'll get on with it. One of the biggest indicators of what type of market we are in…

The old cobblestone roads hint at just how historic our beloved St. Paul is. And with history, there are always stories to be told. Join us as we revisit the history of local properties — including some former residents who might be lurking within their walls.

When it first opened in 1922, the Mounds Theatre was a popular hangout for the locals of Arden Hills to watch silent films.

It seems some might have made it a permanent place to dwell. Tourists have reported bizarre encounters, including a cinema usher strolling the aisles in search of his long-lost love, a child bouncing a ball on stage, and an old man that wails during film screenings

After decades of premieres, screenings, and a few renovations, the theater closed in 1967.

Welcome to the first official recap of the fall season here in the Twin Cities!

Seems like there's so much news going around about the housing market lately. Economic factors like inflation, interest rates, student loan debt and more are sparking questions about where the market is at and where it might be heading. Here in our recap, we rely on the most recent data to help us stay on top of what we're going through, so let's dig into last month's numbers. We don't usually start with the Average Days on Market (DOM), but it was one of September's most notable metrics. In just the span of one month, the average DOM grew by a full business week (5 days), which is its largest climb all year by far. It now sits at 19 days, which is just shy of…

Welcome back for another recap of the Twin Cities real estate market! As summer comes to a close, we will be looking to see how the trends compare to last year at this time, and possibly what they can tell us about how the fall season is going to kick off as we enter the final quarter of the year. Let's take a look.

If you tuned in last month, you may have noticed that we witnessed a sharp turn in direction for pretty much every statistic we follow. While a dip in the numbers is pretty typical for summer here in Minnesota, the severity of the turn was a little surprising. Therefore, we were anxious this month to see if that would continue, or mellow out a bit. Turns out it was the latter.

The Average Sale Price peaked in June to the highest we've…
