Closed sales are up once again in Andover in 2009. A 21% increase of closed sales shows that homes are selling again in this Anoka County suburb. However, the down side is that average price has dropped again by almost 11%. An average sale in Andover is just under $220,000 down by 8.7%. This is probably a combination of the trend for many lender-mediated sales with few high valued homes sold this past year anywhere in the Twin Cities metro. A good point is that in this Anoka County community is time on the market has stayed flat this year. While it would be better to see homes start to sell more quickly as many neighboring communities did, it is still good that the market time did not increase in 2009. Home buyers can still view Andover as one of the affordable options in the Twin Cities north metro!
