Hope you’re enjoying a great summer! There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than on your favorite lakeside oasis.

YTD, 72 lakefront properties have sold on Lake Minnetonka compared to 92 last year (-22%) with a median price of $2,003,750 (+24% LY) and average price of $2,600,769 (+28% LY). Interesting to note that 28% of the LM homes sold YTD have been cash deals. 

With a current inventory of only 42 lakeshore homes, marginally higher than LY, we continue to see low inventory and high demand for LM homes. With interest rates moving higher, now is the time to make your move.
