Welcome to the first full work week of 2019. I feel as though the work from 2018 never really stopped but I like the idea of a new beginning.
I am going to kick the year off with home sales and prices by St. Paul neighborhood for the month of December 2018. As for as Decembers go last month was pretty typical for home sales. Home buying and selling activity is generally lower in December than it is in other months. We can call it the holiday effect.
Home sold at a slightly faster rate in December than they did in November. The story for 2018 has been the extremely low inventory of homes on the market and ultimately that resulted in fewer home sales for the year.
The numbers used to make the chart were extracted from the NorthstarMLS which is deemed reliable but not guaranteed. This data covers a high percentage of local real estate sales activity.
For more local numbers that are not at all hyper please see local market conditions and home sales. Real estate is local. If you would like to know how much your St. Paul home might sell for please call or write. My contact information is on the right and yes there is an @ in my email address, not an (at) and like most email addresses it isn’t case sensitive.
