Lino Lakes, MN Real Estate Market Statistics Third Quarter 2009


Looking for a good deal on lakeshore or acreage in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area north metro? Lino Lakes, MN in Anoka County might be just the ticket. 2009 had seen an abundance of sales in the lower price points with bank owned and lender mediated properties impacting the market. Traditional homes had longer market times and by the end of the 3rd quarter properties were starting to move in even the higher price points.

Lino Lakes has a good mixture of lakeshore, acreage and townhome residences but is more known for having a bit of space between the houses. It conveniently located near the junction of the 35E and 35W split, just north of the Twin Cities, Lino Lakes is a 33 square miles treasure. With 13 lakes and acres of beautiful protected wetland, the community is served by three school districts;
Centennial District #12, Forest Lake District #831, and White Bear Lake District #624. The gem attraction is the pristine 2,700-acre Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Regional Park Reserve is situated within the heart of the city. Lino Lakes is committed to maintain this treasure and its natural settings and wildlife habitats for years to come.

Like other communities in the Twin Cities, Lino Lakes homes priced under $300,000 are selling while those priced over $300,000 are lingering on the market. Inventory is way down in the under $200,000 single family home category and sales are strong up in the $200,000 to $300,000 categories for both single family and townhomes. The third quarter cumulative days on market (CDOM) statistic is much lower than for the average CDOM first quarter of 2009 (142 versus 192). It is also better than the CDOM for all of 2008 (142 versus 160). Looking at current inventory levels and the rate of sales for single family homes priced under $200,000, there is about 3-4 months of inventory. And a bit higher with 7-8 months of inventory at the $200K-$300K price point. Surprisingly even the inventory levels in the $300K-$400K range of Lino Lakes single family homes has made quite a bit of progress this summer. This category also is under a year’s worth of inventory as it has about 10-11 months worth. Hopefully this will be a trend we see continue as we end 2009 and one that will continue into the new year.

Townhomes continue to struggle even with the
$8000 tax credit for first time buyersthat helped make so much difference in the single family home market. In every price category, there continues to be significant inventory and this doesn’t include all of the non-MLS listed new construction townhomes in the area either. Motivated sellers will have to be very aggressive with their pricing if they need to sell a townhome in Lino Lakes. Buyers considering townhomes in the Twin Cities north metro have quite an opportunity to make a deal in the Lino Lakes area.
