As a result, many have sought homes in Minnesota, reflected in the past year’s real estate statistics. The average home value in Minnesota has increased 7.1% in the past year. The Minnesota real estate market is in a current state of massive profits for sellers. According to Herb Tousley, director of real estate programs at the University of St. Thomas, “Supply is down, demand is up…there’s just not a lot of houses for sale. It just seems to be intensifying now because we’re getting into the buying season.” Now is the perfect time to invest in a Minnesota real estate deal, which will sell quickly on the market for a higher return on your investment.
