Year End 2008 Snapshot of Andover, MN Home Sales Statistics

The good news about Andover real estate in 2008 is that homes in Andover are selling once again. The statistic for closed sales shows the number of homes sold was up 16.6% in 2008 over the previous year. The bad news is that the average price has dropped significantly as well. An average sale in Andover is just under $250,000. This is probably due to the fact that fewer high valued homes are selling anywhere in the Twin Cities metro. Another trend for this Anoka County community is that time on the market has increased by over 20% with homes staying on the market an average of a month longer. This bodes well for home buyers as Andover affordability is way up! It would be a good time to consider a purchase as sellers are looking at continued competition with a steady amount of homes coming on to the market and longer market times.
