Luxury Home Update for Minneapolis and Saint Paul

Twin Cities Luxury Market stats compared to the National Luxury Home Market

New data is out for the Twin Cities Luxury Home Market and it looks like the upper tier of homes is inching toward the national average. While it is still a buyer’s market, buyer’s are beginning to come out of the woodwork, getting over the fear seen across the national market, and are starting to purchase high priced homes again.

From speaking with some local buyers, they feel now is a great time to buy as luxury home prices have come down drastically in the last two years. While some are still wary, many are looking to negotiate with sellers, and sellers are now willing to listen to their wants and needs.
  • Average Price: $850,615
  • Average Square Feet: 3739
  • Number of Homes for Sale : 781
  • New Listings: 24
  • Sold Homes: 39
  • Average Days on the Market (DOM) : 153

Below are some market graphs, illustrating luxury home trends over the last year for the Twin Cities. Of course, the huge dip at the end is for December, a month which typically always produces a slower market.
