Twin Cities Area Housing Overview

Strong buyer activity has continued into the fall, which is normally the start of the seasonal slowing of the housing market. With stronger buyer activity in the market this year and the continued constrained supply of homes for sale, speedy sales and multiple offers are likely to remain a common occurrence and will keep the housing market hot even when the weather is cooling.

While mortgage rates remain near record lows, The Mortgage Bankers Association reports that lending standards are tightening, which makes it a bit more difficult for some buyers to qualify. At the same time, unemployment remains substantially higher than a year ago due to COVID-19. Despite all this, buyers are out in full force this fall, showing amazing resilience in the middle of a pandemic.

New Listings in the Twin Cities region increased 9.8 percent to 7,771. Pending Sales were up 27.7 percent to 6,443. Inventory levels fell 32.0 percent to 8,936 units.

Now is one of the most favorable times in market history to sell and purchase a home at near record-low interest rates. The number of homes on the market indicates a 'seller's market' for home prices and low mortgage rates for home buyers. After experiencing the lowest mortgage interest rates, we do not expect a general uptick trend in interest rates in the near future. A slow and gradual rise in interest rates is realistic as the economy continues to improve. If the primary criteria is interest rates, this is the time to buy. Home loan rates continue to hover at all-time lows.
