General Twin Cities & West Metro Market Update
Although overall purchase activity was down, overall pending sales for the month were the highest they’ve been since last April and the number of foreclosure pending sales increased by 31.0 percent. Traditional (non-distressed) sales were down 39.0 percent while short sales were down 11.4 percent. Traditional sales prices were down 3.0 percent to $193,000; foreclosure prices were down 18.9 percent to $103,000; and short sale prices were down 9.9 percent to $132,400.

This week’s numbers are still about as negative as the Minnesota Twins have been this May, but we anticipate a more positive showing in the weeks to come. One interesting blip on the radar is that new listings were up 14.5 percent from last year. A total of 1,774 new homes were introduced to the market.
