Minnesota is nicknamed the Land of 10,000 Lakes for its stunning natural beauty. But along with its shining lakes and lush forests, the state is also home to the Twin Cities — St. Paul and Minneapolis — where Fortune 500 companies including Target and General Mills are headquartered.

Minnesota's overcast weather and snowy winters make it an ideal place to practice the Danish tradition of hygge.

If you're thinking of buying or selling in Minnesota, these Minnesota housing predictions and stats can help you make an informed decision.

Frequently asked questions about Minnesota real estate

Is it a buyer's or seller's market in Minnesota?

It is currently a seller’s market in Minnesota. Even though listing prices have dropped, it's caused properties to be sold much faster than average. While that is the overall market trend, each city and town is different, so it’s still best to consult with a real estate agent to know your local trends.

Is Minnesota a good state to invest in real estate?

Yes, Minnesota is a good state to invest in real estate, especially in bigger cities like Minneapolis and St. Paul, where the demand for housing is higher and consistent. However, if you want to make the most out of your investment, then you’ll first need to do some research about the right properties to buy and create a property management plan. Learn more in our guide to real estate investing.

Is it a good time to buy a house in Minnesota?

It might not be the best time to buy a house in Minnesota right now. Although listing prices are a bit lower than they have been, the heightened demand and limited inventory are causing prices to increase steadily. If you’re planning on buying in the state, then it’s best to work with a top real estate agent to help you land a good deal.
