Along with back-to-school sales and pumpkin-spiced everything, the beginning of fall also has some things you can always count on in real estate: cooling of the housing market. That is to say, throughout September and well into October, fewer homes went on the market, which is to be expected around this time of year. For the last few months of 2019, buyers in the Minneapolis area will continue to find fewer homes for sale but will also face less competition.
Buyer and seller confidence also remained strong in September and October, buoyed by a strong economy and low mortgage rates. Nationwide, as well as regionally, the market showed no significant changes aside from the annual cooldown of the season. Although each price point, housing product and location is unique, the historically low-interest rates have released some of the pent-up demand from earlier in the year.
