Things may not always be as they seem
I have often heard that people want to wait to spring to sell their properties. In theory that makes a lot of sense. The flowers are blooming, grass is turning green, and Minnesotans are just starting to come out of hibernation. But there are studies to show that Winter can be the best time to sell.
I have especially seen evidences of this here in our current market of Rochester, MN. Beginning in late January and early February we have seen the real estate market take off. Rochester currently is a market that has a shortage of homes to buyers which helps to keep properties moving. This scenario is great for sellers as they have the upper hand of supply and demand.
Yes, Spring is coming and new residents for Mayo clinic will be coming soon but it is important to be aware because of Mayo Clinic and our strong economy there are always new buyers coming into our market regardless of the time of year.
