Median home prices are almost as high as they were in 2008 in St. Paul. The data used to make this chart came from the Northstar MLS which is deemed reliable but not guaranteed.
I often have to tell home owners that their home still isn't worth as much as they paid for it and that is always a disappointment. The good news is values are continuing to rise and property is again appreciating.
The year isn't over yet. I think the median home value in 2013 will be higher than it was in 2008 but we won't see 2006/2005 values again for a few more years.
