GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The spring and summer home-buying season is underway and REALTOR Associations across the country are teaming up with the National Association of REALTORS to host thousands of open houses during Nationwide Open House Weekend, April 28 and 29.
REALTORS in Minnesota invite buyers to visit some of the many open houses throughout the state. Buyers will be able to see the incredible variety in prices and types of homes available in their areas as well as learn more about home ownership from experts.
For the first time since June 2010, median sale prices in Minnesota are increasing and more distressed properties are leaving the market. Earlier this year, the National Association of REALTORS reported housing affordability conditions reached the highest level since recordkeeping began in 1970.
According to a survey by the National Association of REALTORS®, nearly eight out of 10 Americans believe buying a home is a good financial decision. Historically low interest rates, combined with some of the most affordable home prices in recent years, make this an excellent time to purchase a home.
