Closed sales were way up in Oakdale in 2009 unfortunately the average closed sales price was down. But a nearly 38% increase of closed sales shows that homes are selling in this popular Washington County suburb just east of St. Paul. The average price was down over 13% so undoubtedly many of the homes sold were lender mediated properties. As we have seen in many other communities across the Twin Cities metro, this is probably a combination of the trend of many lender-mediated sales with few higher valued traditional homes sold this past year. A good point is that in this Washington County community is time on the market is down quite a bit too. Inventory is moving in Oakdale and that will lead to a more balanced market between buyers and sellers. Buyers looking to take advantage of the lower prices and great affordability of Oakdale homes will need to make decisions soon as home are selling in this community!
