Nationwide second home sales were up 81% in 2020 over 2019. Three of the top 20 counties where people bought second homes are in Minnesota. Itasca, Cass, and Crow Wing counties saw the largest increases in second-home sales.
There are a couple of ways of looking at this. It makes me wonder why so many second homeowners decided to sell last year. It is easy to understand why people bought the homes which most of which were probably cabins.
