Minneapolis St. Paul Residential Real Estate Index
The Minneapolis St. Paul Residential Real Estate Index is designed to be a broad measure of the general strength and health of the Twin Cities residential housing market and covers the entire 13-county Twin Cities metro market. The index is a composite of a number of different factors that influence the residential real estate market, including selling price, number of closed sales, the proportion of distressed to traditional sales, days on the market, month’s supply, number of pending sales, number of new listings, number of homes for sale, and the sale price as a percentage of the asking price. These factors are then synthesized in to a numerical index each month.
