Minnesota Realtors Get With the (Post-August 1) Program

What’s one of the best signs that the Twin Cities housing market is back at full throttle, post-Labor Day? (and back-to-school).

It’s purely anecdotal, but my answer would be that this post, “Sneak Peak: 2017-2018 Minnesota Real Estate Contract Changes,” is getting more play (read, hits) on Google.

Mid-July vs. Late Sept.

Originally run July 18, Minnesota Realtors weren’t exactly focused on prospective form changes then.

Immediately after the effective date, August 1, my guess is that agents either delayed using the new forms, which was permissible if both Buyer and Seller agreed — or didn’t need to (because they weren’t that busy in August).

Now, as the Fall market hits full swing, Minnesota agents are belatedly familiarizing themselves with the new format . . . and discovering my July post.
