MAAR Research Report: “Foreclosures and Short Sales in the Twin Cities Housing Market”

By MAAR on Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Bank_mediated_properties1Foreclosures and short sales have become topics of great interest over the past year. Providing data and statistics on the exact impact of these growing phenomena upon the regional housing market has, so far, proved challenging, with little yet produced on exactly how (and how much) these unfortunate events are affecting the buying and selling decisions of Twin Cities real estate consumers.

We’re proud to announce the release of “Foreclosures and Short Sales in the Twin Cities Housing Market,” a special new research report that attempts to answer some of the more pressing questions surrounding lender-mediated properties. Inside you’ll find an analysis of current inventory, new listings, closed sales, sales prices, and the impact that the growth of lender-mediated properties is having on each trend.

The data was gathered and analyzed by MAAR staff in collaboration with Aaron Dickinson, REALTOR® member with Edina Realty, and utilizes a new data approach based upon information from the NorthstarMLS system.
