Edina Realty Launches Hudson Community Web Pages


Detailed Information on Hudson's Neighborhoods Helps Home Buyers, Sellers



Edina, Minn. – Oct. 3, 2011 – Consumers who are searching for homes for sale in Hudson, Wis. and surrounding areas will find new searchable features and a wealth of information on Edina Realty’s new Hudson web pages at http://www.edinarealty.com/wi-hudson.

Hudson area communities are known for preserving a small-town lifestyle while providing easy access to big city amenities. The new Hudson neighborhood web pages help interested homebuyers easily find a wide range of real estate listings in the Hudson area, from historic homes along bustling main streets to large acreage lots that are perfect for a hobby farm.

According to the Regional Multiple Listing Service, the median sales price of a home in the Hudson area is $214,700, an increase of about 15 percent from a year ago. There are currently 221 active listings on the market, a decrease of about 18 percent from last year, which is a good sign that local housing market absorption rates are improving.

The new Hudson web pages enable consumers to search homes for sale in nine Hudson area communities – Baldwin and Woodville, Hammond and Roberts, New Richmond, Prescott, River Falls, Somerset, and Hudson, as well as the St. Croix River Valley. There are also web pages on Hudson townhomes and condos, historic homes, new construction, and foreclosures and short sales, offering specific information and property listings for these types of properties.

So far, Edina Realty has launched neighborhood web pages for Minneapolis, St. Paul, Edina and Rochester. “Our goal is to help consumers who are looking at buying or selling a home in the Hudson area access a wealth of information in one place,” said Bob Peltier, president and CEO of Edina Realty Home Services. “More informed consumers are more prepared by the time they seek professional real estate advice.”

Detailed charts provide information on the neighborhood’s median home value and appreciation, as well as the demographics – age, income, education, family status, etc. Each community/ neighborhood page offers the prospective homebuyer a glimpse into what it’s like to live there by including information on the local schools, parks, transportation, places of interest and overall quality of life.

Edina Realty's website is the leading real estate website in the area, with nearly one million visits every month. Edina Realty is continuously adding new features and functionality to its website and its mobile site, m.edinarealty.com as well as applications for iPhone and Android phones.
