Usually the closing price will be between 5 to 10 percent below asking price in this area. There are exceptions of course. Good question!

In what price range? What type of home? Are you looking at this form a buyers point of much less do I offer? Or from a sellers point of much do I overprice it?

Perhaps the questions should include:
What things besides price can I negotiate to get a really good deal?
What incentives can I offer the buyer/seller so my offer gets accepted?
What type of loan gives me the best chances of having the offer accepted/the closing happen?

In this zip code, there are 148 homes sold in the past six months, and the average selling to list price ratio was 94%. Statistics are often helpful, however, the true market continues to be the price that a buyer is willing to pay, and what a seller is willing to sell his house for. Good luck on your transaction!

Hello, Kathy -

If you're looking only at waterfront properties (which most people asking about our zip code ARE), we have some statistics that may be of interest to you, including selling to list price ratios. Visit and let us know if that's where your interests are.

Otherwise, the 386 sales in our zip code that closed during the last 12 months ranged from a 1924 1,800 sq ft wood-frame home (on three lots) listed at $39,900 that sold for $25,000 (63%) to a 2003 5,000+ sq ft riverfront home listed at $1,575,000 that sold for $1,200,000 (76%). 321 (83%) of those 386 however, closed at 90% (or better) of list price; 55 (14%) closed at 100% (or better) of list price.

While I agree with some previous writers' opinions that at a zip code level that ratio is almost meaningless, this was an interesting exercise, Thank you.

In general the homes are selling between 93 to 97% of asking price. It depends on the area you are looking at. The 33950 zip code covers a wide range of style, size and price ranges of homes. Some are in deed-restricted communities, some are smaller homes in non-deed restricted areas, some are on the water. But in most cases nothing sells below 90% of asking price. We also quite often have multiple offers and the home will sell over asking price. If I can help with anything else or answer any other questions about the area, please let me know.

I'm in Ron's camp. Lets say you knew if a Zip code was selling 90% below asking.

This is as helpful as knowing the average car sells for 20,000, 90% below sticker.

Which is to say, the information, while interesting, is not helpful when you come to buying a home.

First a Zip is NOT homogeneous. I can show you Zips with average cost being 150,000- I can show you 10,000,000 homes, and 20,000 homes.

In some area homes are selling for more than listing!!!!! Price wars have broken out.

A homes value CAN NOT be determined by knowning "Average" % off listing price in a Zip code. Using it would NOT lead to a good outcome.

Kathy those numbers are all over the board. Typically if a home is priced right the selling price will be in the 90+ percent of the asking price. Homes that are price above the proper pricing range generally won't receive many offers and if they do the offers will likely be based on what properly priced comps sold for. Hope that helps.

It's about 90% currently. If you're thinking of moving here - do so - I left MN in 2009 and have not regretted it at all - especially in the colder months.

Why would you assume that the ASKING PRICE is reasonable?
And why would you assume that houses were selling BELOW that price?
