The market in Mendota Heights and Sunfish Lake, MN is starting to pick
up again (despite the crisp January temperatures). A number of homes
came on the market early in the month and have already gone to
inspection or pending. There are also signs that high end properties
are moving again, both in the local press ("Million-dollar housing
market shows life signs" http://www.startribune.com/business/187512461.html?refer=y
and with 280 Salem Church road going to inspection ($2,175,000). I've
also heard through the grapevine about a few other high end homes with
offers being negotiated in SFL.
All in all, 2013 is looking to be a great year if you're buying or selling a house in MSP.
