Buying a Minneapolis St. Paul Home – Is Now the Time?
For the past few years, the housing market in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro area, along with most of the nation, has been in a state of turmoil. Median home prices kept going down, leading many prospective home buyers to wonder if it was a good time to buy. For many Twin Cities home buyers, waiting was their decision. Starting in 2012, however, conditions began to change. As the general economy began to improve, real estate prices began to rise, slowly but surely. At the same time, the number of home sales listed by participants of Northstar Minnesota MLS began to increase, too, with bargain hunters and real estate investors buying homes quickly. Existing housing inventories began to decrease, and the time that a home was on the market began to shrink. In addition, Minnesota multiple home listings are selling more quickly in today’s market than in previous years.
The experienced professional Realtors with our REMAX Realty team noticed this trend and realized that home buyers were beginning to think about buying homes again in increasing numbers, even in 2011, when we sold over 825 homes. Moving forward to 2013, the team feels very fortunate to have closed over 1275 homes. Our licensed Realtors and agents are members of Northstar MLS and we have full access to the complete Minnesota MLS system, so we can do a thorough multiple listings search for you. We can arrange a showing of any home that interests you, and can help you find additional homes that meet your needs. If you choose an agent from our REMAX team to act as a buyer’s agent, you’ll be in great hands. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or are looking for a new home to move into, our experienced agents can help you at every stage of the process, and throughout the Twin Cities metro area.

Taking advantage of low interest rates to purchase a home today may be an opportunity that won’t occur again for a very long time.
- Strong Existing Home Inventory – Even though inventories of existing home are decreasing, current active listings by Participants of the Northstar MLS in the Twin Cities metro alone area exceed 17,000. What that means is that searching for homes with our powerful real estate search tools will show you a wide variety of homes and other properties that match your needs.

- Foreclosures & Short Sales – The foreclosure rate and the number of homes available through short sales are also dropping, but there are still plentiful homes in these categories. Whether you’re looking for a home at bargain prices that you can improve while building “sweat equity,” or you’re a real estate investor looking for attractive rental properties, you’ll find plenty of opportunities in various Minneapolis St. Paul home multiple listings.
