Home Sales Continue to Grow

Home sales in the Twin Cities continue to show strong year-over-year growth. For the week ending July 9, there were 788 pending sales, an increase of 40.2 percent from a year ago. The amount of signed purchase agreements seen in recent weeks is similar to the activity for the same weeks in the summer of 2008.

The good news is that fewer homes are being listed, which is helping to dampen any potential for an oversupply problem. Over the last three months, there have been roughly 1,400 fewer new listings than during the same period in 2010, and the inventory of available homes for sale is down 16.1 percent from this time last year.

As always, balance between buyers and sellers plus a healthy, sustainable market is the ultimate goal.
