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…

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.
