Market Summary

The residential real estate market in Ramsey County experienced slower but steady growth in 2023, with home sales dropping to their lowest level in over 20 years. This was due to higher mortgage rates, rising prices and low inventory, which discouraged many potential buyers. Additionally, homeowners with more favorable mortgage rates chose to stay in their homes, which further reduced supply. Although there were fewer buyers, there were also fewer sellers, which meant that inventory remained in short supply. Home prices still increased but at a slower pace. Multiple offers were not as common as they were in 2022, with the list/price ratio falling from 102% in 2022 to 99.8% in 2023. Marketing times were still relatively short, with an average marketing time of just 34 days.
Residential foreclosure activity remained low in 2023 and is not a factor in Ramsey County. Foreclosures continue to be temperedby increasing home values allowing most distressed homeowners enough equity to sell at a profit. 
Overall, the 2023 Ramsey County Housing market experienced tempered growth with most homes having sold near their list price and within 34 days.
