Is it good news or bad news that a home scheduled to be on “Broker Tour” — essentially, open houses for local Realtors each Tuesday in the Twin Cities — abruptly cancelled?

Answer:  it depends.

It’s good news if the reason is that the home received multiple offers, and sold at 11 p.m. Monday night.

It’s bad if the vacant home still isn’t shoveled out (in the wake of last weekend’s blizzard), and the listing agent felt compelled to cancel because the walk was too treacherous.

Edina Realty – City Lakes agents reported both scenarios at today’s weekly office meeting.
