The Twin Cities housing market continues its spring dance as the 2010 weekly numbers outpace the equivalent weeks of 2009. New listings for the week ending March 27 were at 2,240-29.4 percent higher than during the same week last year.
Pending sales are up 13.8 percent over last year, and we once again broke the magical "1,000 margin" with 1,049 purchase agreements.
A stat to start watching closely is the ever-shrinking Supply-Demand Ratio. The ratio is squatting at 4.39 homes per buyer. That's a lot less inventory than we've seen in recent years, indicating that buyers need to move quickly to get the home they want, especially in the lower price ranges where homes are selling the quickest.
