Northeast Minneapolis, MN Real Estate Market Update, January 2009

Northeast is a younger area of Minneapolis with Victorian architecture including historic churches, old mills and new and old retail areas. Let’s compare real estate numbers for the month of December 2007 to the month of December 2008. New listings were up 18.9% from 37 to 44 listings this past December. Closed sales were also on the upswing, increasing 18.5% from 27 to 32 closings! The average sales price in Northeast was $137,682, and in December of 2007 it was $175,791. The percent of original list price received continued to be just above 90% at 90.3%. The average days on the market until sale declined from 150 days to 119 days this past year, a decrease of 20.6%. The inventory for single family homes decreased 18.9% from 2007 to 172 homes on the market, and the townhouse-condo inventory also declined 38.3% from 2007. There are currently 29 townhomes-condos available.

Now let’s compare the entire year of 2007 to the entire year of 2008 for Northeast Minneapolis. New listings decreased 16.6%, going from 1,000 in 2007 to 834 new listings in 2008. Closed sales were also down, but only by 7% from 429 to 399. Average sales price in Northeast went from $199,509 to $165,175 in 2008, down 17.2%.  The percent of original list price received at the time of sale did drop 3.5% from 94.6% down to 91.2%.  Hey, it’s still above 90%!! The average days on the market until sale went from 101 days in 2007 to 145 days in 2008.

In conclusion, looking at the year to date numbers in the above paragraph, there were fewer new listings and fewer closings, but in 2008 a much higher percentage of the listings on the market actually closed! The average days on the market until sale in Northeast are among the longest for any of the Minneapolis neighborhoods.

Longfellow area – Minneapolis real estate

January 9th, 2009

It’s time for us to revisit the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis, comparing November of 2007 to November of this year. There have been 5.6% more listings this November, going from 36 to 38 new listings. Closed sales stayed exactly the same at 21 closings. The average sales price is down 13.7% from $226,002 to $195,102. Percent of original list price received at the time of sale is up 2.6% to 92.3%. The average days on market in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis is currently at 87 days, up 33.5% from last November. There were 107 active single family homes for sale, compared to 111 actives in November of 2008. The townhome and condo inventory levels also decreased significantly, going from 22 to only eight active townhomes or condos for sale this past November.

Now, let’s take a look at January through November of 2007 and compare that to January through November of 2008.  There were 639 new listings put onto the MLS in 2007, and 587 in 2008. This is a decrease of 8.1%. Closed sales are down 2.7% from 336 to 327 this year. The average sales price for a property went down 12.9% from $223,542 in 2007 to $194,599 this year. Average days on the market are up 26.3%, from 73 days last year to 93 days this year. The percent of original list price received at the time of sale went from 94.8% last year to 93% this year, a decrease of 1.9%.

We were hoping for a higher number of closed sales in the Longfellow neighborhood stats for this year, and unfortunately that did not take place.  However, the percent of original list price increased this November over last (as well as the number of new listings put up for sale on the RMLS.)

Look for our next update which will include December’s statistics for Longfellow as well as the entire year in review for this part of Minneapolis!
