“Best Deals” on Lake Minnetonka & Lake Real Estate Report – Mid-September

Enjoy late summer on Lake Minnetonka!

As we approach mid-September, some may think summer has come to an end … happy I’m not one of them! Many would suggest the best is yet to come as the lake quiets down, the leaves start to turn, and a sweater feels good on an afternoon cruise.   

The 2019 Lake Minnetonka real estate market is experiencing another good year even though the median and average price of a lakefront home has softened slightly from last year’s record highs and trending towards 2017 results. YTD, 94 LM homes have Sold compared to 93 LY with a Median price of $1,300,000 (-12%) and Average price of $1,533,027 (-22%). The big change in this year’s average price is due to only 18 homes sold over $2M compared to 35 LY. The current inventory of only 75 lakefront homes is down slightly from LY. Days on market (DOM) has also gone down to 144 days compared to 207 days LY.

With the summer winding down, now is your time to put a plan together to make your dreams of lakeshore living come true. I am only a “click” away from helping you find the perfect slice of Lake Minnetonka paradise. With interest rates staying very low, and prices moderating, I expect fall season buyers to take advantage of their buying power even as low inventory continues to affect the market.
