The Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS® just released the March monthly skinny video a few days ago. From the information provided it appears that snowy weather didn't slow down the home buyers in the Twin Cities market. Over 3500 purchase agreements were written during the last month. And which sellers were on the receiving end of those purchase agreements? Traditional sellers at lower price points (as opposed to lender-mediated or bank-owned properties). This is no doubt due to buyers wanting to get an agreement accepted or countered in a timely manner combined with traditional sellers willingness to negotiate as the deadline to the $8000/$6500 tax credit looms nearer. Check out the video for a full recap of the housing market in the Twin Cities area.
