As closed sales rise and inventory shrinks, new listings can’t keep paceCompetition for scarce housing stock defined Minnesota’s real estate market in June, pushing the median sales price to $325,000, up 18.9% above June 2020, according to Minnesota Realtors® (MNR), the membership organization supporting all 22,000 Realtors in the state.
