In a season when some would-be home Sellers are contemplating taking their homes off the market, and others are deferring going on the market (presumably, until after the New Year), it’s worth noting that at least a few Twin Cities home are selling briskly.

Exhibit A:  140 Gleahaven Road in Wayzata.

Listed about a month ago, it immediately attracted multiple offers, and ultimately sold for more than $40k(!) above the asking price, in a cash deal (I got the scoop from a colleague who represented one of the runners-up Buyers).

Especially noteworthy:  that $500k price point is well above the range of most multiple offers in the Twin Cities.
