The Twin Cities Real Estate market has been on the rise. Much of this is due to supple and demand. There just seems to be a lack of certain homes available for sale. Thus, when one comes on the market with features like 4 BR, 3 stall garage, or other hard to fine features in your area... it sells in a matter of a couple days.
Over the Memorial Holiday weekend people were still looking but few homes were listing. This week will more homes come on the market? Of course more homes will come on the market! But is there going to be that home your waiting for?
As a buyer you must evaluate based on the current market our your goals for what you want in a home realistic? Have you seen any homes like this for sale lately? If your answer, is no, not since last year...then your not realistic as the home prices were lower last year in most areas of the Twin Cities.
I would not settle for a home, but I do suggest being realistic with what is available and likely coming available on the market.
