TWIN CITIES AREA

May 2016

The Twin Cities area real estate market is seeing a continuation of trends that have been developing for months: high demand, low supply, quick sales and rising prices, according to the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS®.

Breaking down April market metrics:

  • The number of sales contracts written in April was up 1.6 percent over April 2015, indicating increasing buyer demand.
  • New listings were down 2 percent year-over-year, with homeowners still hesitant to sell their homes. Overall, inventory was down 19.4 percent from last April.
  • Median sales price was up 7.5 percent over last year to $231,500, due in part to supply/demand dynamics and the fact that traditional sales (not foreclosure or short sales) made up 90 percent of sales for the first April since 2007.
  • The average time a listing stayed on the market was 73 days – down 12 days from last year.
  • The months’ supply of homes for sale was 2.6, down nearly 28 percent from last year, indicating a strong sellers’ market for many areas.

(For a helpful visual guide to the months’ supply metric, check out this infographic.)
