Year End 2008 Snapshot of Linwood, MN Home Sales Statistics

The market of homes in Linwood, Minnesota took a hit in 2008. New listings were down. Closed Sales were down. And the average sales price was down. All significantly. The average sales price of a home dropped nearly 27%; from the around $250,000 to just over $185,000 compared to sales in 2007. This rural Anoka County community featuring acreage and lakeshore properties north of Columbus and south of Stacy, had a whopping increase in time on the market up nearly 24% from 2007 to 179 days on the market. Linwood is also experiencing one of the lowest ratios of sales price to list price meaning sellers in Linwood are negotiating to get their homes sold. With lower average sales prices, acreage and lakeshore homes are very affordable in Linwood right now!
