Re/max Advantage Plus Shakopee will be moving to a new location starting the first of the year. Re/Max Advantage Plus is a market leader in the Shakopee real estate market and has closed over 300 transactions in the Shakopee office alone year to date with many more pending transactions. Re/Max Advantage Plus, lead by real estate broker Eric Malmberg will be moving into the build Edina Realty Shakopee had occupied for 10+ years. After closing there will be extensive remodeling followed by a Grand opening in which the public is invited. A date and time has yet to be determined. Re/max Shakopee Realtors anticipate holding many Shakopee real estates seminars in the new space geared towards the shifting market. Some buyer seminars included will be first time buyer seminars, investment seminars and seminars about selling in a tough real estate market. Shakopee realtors have seemed to gravitate to the Re/Max Advantage Plus franchise over the past few years and the strength of the company is continually growing. Eric Malmberg, broker for Re/Max Advantage Plus also acquired two more Re/Max real estate franchises in Minnetonka and Chanhassen to have more market share west of the Twin Cities.
The Shakopee real estate market has been a busy one this year although with a lack of inventory. We are just over 200 active mls listings at 225, however 50 of the mls listings have some sort of contingent offer on them. Of the remaining Shakopee homes for sale listed as “active” mls listings 39 are short sale properties and 27 are consider foreclosure listings. Being almost 38% of the remaining inventory is considered distressed this does not leave too many Shakopee homes for sale remaining. Let’s compound another factor, Shakopee new construction homes. 28 of the remaining 175 Shakopee homes for sale are either model homes, to be built new construction or under construction homes. That leaves less than half of all Shakopee mls listings as traditional home sales.
I have heard many complaints from Shakopee buyers looking to purchase a house that just can’t find anything out there. If you know anyone looking to sell I do have these buyers looking in Shakopee to purchase soon:
