2008 Year End Snapshot of Lino Lakes, MN Home Sales Statistics

The number of closed sales took a drastic drop in Lino Lakes, Minnesota in 2008. Over 25% fewer homes were sold last year in the Lino Lakes area than in 2007. The number of new listings is down as well along with the average price of a home sold. It took about a month longer to sell a home in Lino Lakes, Minnesota in 2008 compared to in 2007 but the Days on Market Statistic is still significantly lower than in some other north metro communities.. The average sales price for a home is down just over 14%. This probably reflects that more lower priced homes are selling than those at the higher price points as well as the flattening of home values. As in other Twin Cities north metro areas, affordability is up. If you are a home buyer looking for the right time to buy a Lino Lakes, this may be the best time in a long time to make your move!
