Shakopee Homes Are Selling

If you are looking at the Shakopee real estate market and wondering what homes in Shakopee are selling you might be curious to find the homes under 200k are popping.

Looking at the current real estate market in Shakopee the listing inventory is down. Only 278 homes in Shakopee are listed on the Minnesota MLS; of those homes 171 homes are single family homes and 101 are Shakopee townhomes for sale. What a lot of buyers find frustrating are homes on the market the show as being active, but are actually sold. 64 homes listed as active in Shakopee currently have an accept contingent offer on them. Those homes sold may be subject to inspection, another home selling or bank approval. That brings down the total number of available homes to 214. I think there is a real lack of good homes out there right now. The current avergae days on market for those homes for sale is 163 days. Average sales price is resting at $227,978 with an average of around 2205 sqft.

Looking at homes for sale in Shakopee that have offers and are just waiting to close are considering Pending transactions. There are 85 pending homes in Shakopee. 32 of which are townhomes and 53 single family homes. The average days on market is only 126 days and the average overall listing price before pending is $180,398.

The sold Shakopee real estate statistics lay as follows:

  • 219 homes sold in Shakopee on the Minnesota MLS as of 1/1/11
  • 127 of those were single family
  • 92 homes were townhomes
  • Average final list price of all homes was $174,737 and sold price was $171,645
  • It took on average 149 days to sell those homes
  • Townhomes listing price averaged $115,295 and the selling price was $110,272
  • Single Family average listing price was $218,839 with the selling price at $216,104


The market continues to be burdened by the forclosure market. Of all active listings 115 homes were listed as a Shakopee foreclosure or a Short sale home on the MN MLS. That represented about 41% of the active inventory. Also take into consideration some agent do not disclose the status of their listing.

The sold homes on the MN MLS for the Shakopee real estate market represented even higher numbers. almost 58% of all homes sold from 1/1/11+ were shrot sale homes in Shakopee or foreclosures.

If you have any questios about the short sale process or how foreclosure listing work I would be happy to help. I am a CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) and a SSFS (Short Sale Foreclosure Specialist). I work a lot with buyers and can walk you through step by step how to negotiate the best possible deal with banks. I recently had two clients purchase homes in multiple offers and have their offers accepted over offers that were higher. I also recently had a client who had his offer acceted over 23 others offers on the same property. There are ways to strategically place your offer in front of banks so you walk away with signatures.
