February 2 marked the beginning of the Minnesota house hunting season, and it looks like buyers have responded well in Northfield. According to Regional Multiple Listing Service of Minnesota, there are 194 homes for sale in Northfield priced at or below $200,000. Since February 2, there have been twelve accepted offers on homes in that price range. That's about one in ten homes no longer available to buyers who have not yet started house hunting, and it's probably the best of them.
There are still a lot of homes on the market, and some of them are almost as nice as the ones you missed. If you have any interest in firing your landlord this year, now is the time to take action.
