Year End 2008 Snapshot of Hugo, MN Home Sales Statistics

While the number of new listings, closed sales and average sales price for homes in Hugo, Minnesota dropped between 10-14% in 2008 compared to the previous year, the biggest change was in time on the market. In this northern Ramsey and Washington County community, just north of White Bear Lake, home sales were an average of 40 days longer than in 2007; up statically by nearly 47%! Gas prices and a devastating tornado may have played a role. With the lower average sales price of a home in Hugo at $236,517, down just over 13%, a first time homebuyer can consider this community an affordable option once again.
