Summer is slowly coming to an end and the fall real estate market is inching closer and closer with every single day. Just as sure as we can expect the seasons to change, the housing market will likely follow suit. As the weather begins to cool down, it’s safe to assume the housing market will do the same. It’s worth noting, however, that the change isn’t necessarily a bad thing, at least not for those who are prepared for what’s to come.

Work on that lawn!

This year especially as we have been in drought-like conditions, you may need to get an earlier start on it than normal. However, it will help you separate from the bunch if your lawn is in tiptop shape.

By now chances are you have seen a plethora of news articles painting a doom and gloom picture of the housing market. Terms like “bubble” and “crash” are plastered on every headline with comments about recessions and high interest rates. 

We are here to shed some light on the changing market, and why a good REALTOR® matters now more than ever. 

First, let us say the past few years we have been in an extremely unbalanced market. It’s been unhealthy and highly inflated, and to top it off, interest rates stayed historically low.

In the Twin Cities, we are seeing the market cool off slightly. But, it’s not all doom and gloom as one may think! We really needed some relief in the market, which appears to be shifting back to pre-pandemic conditions when…

You know, we have been doing the market recap every month for over two years now. You'd think that after a while it would start to feel monotonous, but for me, every month is like having a new ride to try at Valley Fair, and you just never know what you're going to get until you strap in. And yes, I am one of the people that stands in the long line at the front of the rollercoaster seeking that little extra bit of thrill.

Whatever publication you get your news from, there's about a 100% chance you've stumbled upon a few articles related to the economy and whether it's affecting the housing market. Well, we won't be solving that entire mystery today, but the good news is that tracking real estate data is something we do quite well. So, let's break it…

Uptown is centered at the intersection of Hennepin Avenue and West Lake Street and has long been a hip neighborhood of Minneapolis. A staple area for decades, it was famously written about by Prince. It has traditionally spanned the corners of four neighborhoods, Lowry Hill East, East Bde Maka Ska, South Uptown and East Isles neighborhoods, which are all within the Calhoun Isles community. Throughout the many changes over time, this area is still full of buzzy gastropubs, bistros, stores and boutiques. Known for its classic Uptown Theater on Hennepin and being near walking and cycling paths encircling Lake Bde Maka Ska and Lake of the Isles, this area has plenty to do.

Rinse and Repeat...but with a twist?

At first glance, May of '22 is looking like a repeat of last year, with many of the numbers coming in very similar to last spring. However, there are a few signs that we may be shifting gears a bit in this ever changing Twin Cities real estate market. Read on for a breakdown of each category, and our thoughts on where things might be headed.

Let's start by looking at the Average Sale Price, which landed at just under $436k ($435,944 to be exact). Once again, this is officially the highest we have ever seen on record, and was the fourth month of continuous growth. The Median Price also grew to its highest level, landing at $375k. These two metrics are the most different of any from last year due to prices rising…

Think of your home’s exterior like the cover of a book (yes, cheesy we know!), but the exterior and its condition set the stage for what’s inside the home. Whether you’re interested in selling this year, or just want to make some improvements for your own enjoyment, boosting your home’s curb appeal is often an easy and generally inexpensive way to make your home look nicer and perhaps even add some value!

Love your lawn

Yours doesn’t have to be putting green ready, just make sure it’s getting proper water, trimming, and care! If you have some bald or thin spots, take some time this year to give those areas some TLC, you’d be surprised how much of an impact a lush green lawn makes!

 

Add in some fresh landscaping
