2012 Shakopee Real Estate Market Recap

2012 was a great year for the Shakopee real estate market.$118,804,566 in volume was sold, up from $112,846,879 in 2011 but fewer homes were sold 596 in 2012 vs 626 in 2011. Home prices were up from 2011 RMLS numbers, more volume sold, homes sold in fewer days and interest rates dropped even further than the record levels they were at. The average sales price of all Shakopee homes for 2012 was just under 200k at $199,337 which was up about 9.6% from the 2011 average price of $180,267. Price per sqft was $91.34 for 2012.

Shakopee Townhomes

shakopee real estate recap 2012As previously stated there are not many Shakopee townhomes currently on the market, but that did not stop them from selling this year. Shakopee had a total of 237 townhomes sold in 2012 representing 39.8% of all real estate sold, not too far off of typical years. I saw and personal represented many investors who purchase townhomes for rental properties. One future concern I have is how will these townhome developments hold up in future years with so many rentals. I do see assn dues rising across the board. The average sales price of townhomes in Shakopee rose from $110,572 in 2011 to $119,202 (average price per sqft was $78.02) in 2012, a 7.2% increase.  Townhomes only took on average 107 days to sell compared to 153 in 2011 to sell. We were even seeing multiple offers on short sale homes toward to end of the year because of the lack of inventory on the market. Speaking of short sales and other distressed property, about 64% of all townhome sales in Shakopee in 2012 were either short sales of foreclosures. 24% were short sale in which the seller negotiated with the bank to take a lesser value than what was owed due to a hardship. 40% were foreclosures/ banked owned properties.

Shakopee Single Family Homes

There were still plenty of Shakopee foreclosures as well as short sales with single family homes. 358 single family homes sold in Shakopee in 2012, 78 foreclosures (21.8%)and 31 short sales (8.7%). At first comparing town homes to single family distressed properties seemed very high given only 22.6% of all single family sales were consider “distressed” property vs a whopping 64% of a town home sales, but when you look at the explosion of townhomes being built in the early 2000’s that makes a ton of sense. Many buyers purchase townhomes at the height of the market and now many were unloaded. In hindsight purchasing single family would have made much more sense for those buyers and even the average sales price indicates that being the  sales price in SHakopee was $254,533 in 2012, up 11.7% from of $224,784 in 2011. Average market time fell 23.3% to only 102 average days on the market and price per sqft settled in at just over $100 per sqft ($100.46).

Shakopee Homes For Sale

The current Shakopee real estate market is a bit of a slow one, but that is pretty common this time of year. This is the lowest inventory that I have seen for years if not even since 2001 when I started. Only 106 Shakopeee homes for sale are listed on the RMLS of Minnesota. Currently there are only 77 that do not currently have an offer, 62 single family homes and 15 townhouses. In previous years Shakopee would have about 40-45% of the market represented by townhouses compared to the rest of the homes on the market. The cheapest home in Shakopee right now is listed at only $59,900 at 9081 13th Ave E Shakopee and the most expensive home in Shakopee at $912,000 however that home is a “to be built” new construction home on Pribyl Pond. The most expensive home standing right now on the market is at 630 Bluebill Circle Shakopee list at $799,900.

Why Are There So Many Shakopee Townhome Short Sales?

There are few townhouses that were built more than 20 years ago, and the bulk of them were built in the early 2000’s at a time when townhome prices were soaring and unsound lending practices were rampant. Many townhomes were purchased with risky mortgage products such as interest only ARMs. Also, many of these homes were purchased with little or no money down, and seller contributions toward buyer closing costs were commonplace, meaning that many townhome owners were actually buying themselves into negative equity situations right at closing. Shakopee townhomes seemed to be going up everywhere, and soon it became apparent that these types of homes were overbuilt. Then the economic downturn came, ARM mortages were adjusted upwards, and prices fell. Credit and underwriting tightened up, making it harder for buyers to purchase. Non-stop “the sky is falling” media reports about the real estate market eroded buyer confidence. All of this was the perfect recipe for creating the inventory of Shakopee townhome short sales listings that we see today.

Time to Purchase Shakopee Townhome Short Sales

Fast-forward to the future: The economy recovers, and the population of Shakopee continues to grow. In fact, Scott County is the fastest growing county in the state of Minnesota, and it doesn’t take a real estate guru to tell you that increased population means increased demand, and prices stabilize and begin to climb. It is axiomatic that if you want to make profits in real estate, buy property where the people will be. Inventory of Shakopee townhome short sales and foreclosure listings begins to decline, placing yet another upward pressure on prices. Interest rates begin to go back up and buyers who were “sitting on the fence” start to get nervous, so they jump off the fence and buy.

Timing is important too. Warren Buffett and Donald Trump are both telling us that the time to buy real estate right now. Warren Buffet claims that he finds the most opportunity “when there is blood in the streets.” If you have been thinking of shopping for Shakopee townhome short sale listings, don’t make the classic investor’s mistake of waiting until prices go up. Also, don’t make the classic borrower’s mistake of waiting until prices go up. Owners of Shakopee short sale townhome listings have taken a beating from market conditions, but if you are a home buyer, your stock is rising. Shakopee townhome short sales are presenting you with a buying opportunity of a lifetime!

One Level Shakopee MN Townhomes For Sale

The Shakopee real estate market has built up quite an inventory of Shakopee townhomes for sale. Shakopee MN townhomes main consist of multi level townhomes with a limited amount of one level townhomes. If you take a look at the Shakopee townhomes that have one level starting on the west side of town by Tahpah Park you have in my opinion one of the best Shakopee townhome developments, Stone Meadow.

Stone Meadows Townhomes in Shakopee

One Level Shakopee MN townhomes for saleThe Stone Meadow one level townhomes in Shakopee consist of what I would say about 100-120 townhomes. Most are slab on grade, but about 20 or so have basements are those tend to rarely come on the market. I do know of one person that would consider selling, but just does not want to list their Shakopee townhome at this time. If you are interested, give me a call and we can set up what is called a “one time showing contract” The Stone Meadow townhomes with basements also include everything on the main level and all townhomes in this development are handicap accessible. That includes doorways, bathrooms and not even one stair on the outside as I know this can be hard for those in a wheelchair. This development is run so well and recently all the townhomes had their roofs replaced off an insurance claim. Originally these townhomes were built by Pulte Homes which has now merged with Centex Homes. There are three floor plans in this development, all two bedroom 2 bathroom townhomes units with the exception of the Shakopee townhomes with basements. size generally ranges from 1300-1600 sqft est and the townhomes with basements can push 3000 sqft. You do not have anyone behind you in any of these units, just neighbors on each side. Each unit also has a nice sized patio.

One Level Townhomes With Assistance

Just to the North of the Stone Meadows neighborhood there is a little Shakopee MN  development where a little farm used to be and across the street from a church. There are only about 30-40 townhomes in this development and a few different floor plans pretty open, but the bedrooms can get a little more tight in these units. There are no basements in these units and the size is usually 1300-1400 sqft with 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Link Built Shakopee Townhomes With Basements

Just off of highway 169 and Marystown Road is a development by a good quality Shakopee builder, Link Construction. With only one street, Quincy Circle lays about 24 Shakopee twinhomes. The one level Shakopee twinhomes are quality in and out and ranks as some of the best built Shakopee townhomes out there. Stucco exteriors, concrete driveways, Anderson windows and custom cabinets set these apart. Although some insides are similar, Link allowed many builder more of a custom experience and owners were able to make there more of there own. You do not have anyone behind you in these units, just neighbors on each side Most of these Shakopee twinhomes do have basements and with that finished top out around 3200 sqft.

Golf Course Town Homes in Shakopee

Stonebrooke golf course in Shakopee also has some nice one level townhomes which do not come n the market very often either. It has been years since I have seen one pop on. You do not have anyone behind you in these units, just neighbors on each side.

Affordable Town houses in Shakopee

Countryside a Town and Country development of 500+ townhomes, mostly multi level townhomes for sale has a few different level level floor plans, however in this case you may either be on the entire top level or the entire lower level. In both case not only are you connected to your neighbor(s) on the side, but you would also have someone living above you or below you. These are probably the most cost efficient Shakopee one level townhomes for sale and there always tends to be a few to look at. Some offer only a one car garage, but others offer a two car garage. Sqft is usually in the 1000 sqft range and  the townhomes typically have two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Countryside neighborhood is located just to the west of Marschall Rd off of 17th Avenue and extends to Spencer. Right now you could probably pick up a Shakopee townhome in like this for under 100k.

Not Quite One Level Townhomes, but Close

If head a bit further down 17th Ave and turn on Dublin just after the Target there is a development of Shakopee townhomes for sale built by MW Johnson. These townhowns are a bit quirky as they are not true one level townhomes. You would have only one of two steps in between the kitchen/dining area and the family room. There is a bedroom, bathroom and laundry all on those two levels, but the “real” master bedroom is upstairs along with another bedroom and bathroom. The middle units are no different than the end units, the end units just have an extra window. I like the layout of these though as they remind me a lot of a single family home. You do not have anyone behind you in these units, just neighbors on each side.

Gene Jergens Built One Level Shakopee MN Townhouses

Along Vierling Drive in Shakopee are a long row of one level townhomes that were built by Gene Jergens. These are great one level Shakopee townhomes, however the biggest downside is that they back up to highway 169. Most are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and currently only one is listed in the upper 150’s.

That about does it for all Shakopee one level townhomes all Shakopee townhomes for sale South of 10th Street. Now moving to the North side of 10th a few more quality townhomes surface.

One Level Walkout Townhomes With Basements

Gene Jergens, a quality Shakopee builder has built quite a few Shakopee townhomes and twinhomes off of Eastway, Woodland Trail, Woodland Ct etc and like the Link Construction townhomes on Quincy these are all stucco and all have custom materials inside. Gene Jergens definitely knows how to build a house well. These Shakopee townhomes are located near Canterbury Park in Shakopee, but some have nice park like settings in the backyard and many a walkout units with finished basement. I think these are some of the nicer one level townhomes in Shakopee, but on the more expensive side

Near the old Pearson Elementary school there are a few Shakopee one level twinhomes, however unless altered these twinhomes do not have laundry on the main level. They were built in the 80’s and again are more like a single family home. The positive is there are no assn dues so your payments can so LOW. Street like Eastway have these Shakopee townhoems for sale and typically they are selling around the 95-125k price range.

Detached Townhomes By Lowes in Shakopee

Moving Eastward toward Lowes area set of unique Shakopee townhomes as they are detached. These Shakopee townhoems were built by Ryland homes around 2005-2008ish and feature basements. One unique features to these townhomes is that you belong to an assn that has an included pool in the dues. Enjoy those three-four months of sunshine we get!

Laurent Townhomes in Shakopee MN Off Vierling Drive

Laurnet built a small number of townhome in Shakopee, all of which are somewhat plain on the outside, but nice on the inside. They offer a good amount of sqft for the price and have basements which are a huge plus. I am not aware of any with walkout basements.

I may potentially missed a few developments and some intentianally as there as so few Shakopee townhomes that they are not worth bring up in detail. Scattered throughout town there are many one level Shakopee townhomes or twinhomes in which they might be sandwiched in a single family neighborhood. I know there was one on Hennes recently for sale as well as some that sold on Austin Ct.

One Level Shakopee Town Home Handicap Accessible

Tom Scott and the Twin City Real Estate team with Remax Advantage Plus in Shakopee recently listed a solid one level Shakopee town home that is handicap accessible. The Shakopee town home is located in the high demand Stone Meadow development in Shakopee. This development is great and the association VERY well run in my opinion. They keep their association dues very low at only $120 per month and the development recently had all their roofs replaced.

This handicap accessible one level Shakopee town home has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and is close to 1400 sqft. There is a really cool octogonal sunroom off the back of the home that also has easy access to a very private patio. Behind this town home are single family homes with a nice tree line creating a nice break between the homes and lots of privacy.

When you walk in on the main level which features NO stairs  you are greeted by a nice cozy three sided fireplace dividing a formal dining room, which is currently being used as a library, and the living room to the left. The kichten overlooks the dining area and includes lots of cabinets and an eat in breakfast area. Just off the kitchen is the laundry room.

Other features on the main level include a private master bathroom and large walk in closet in the master bedroom and an additional guest room or office. There is another full bathroom for guest to use that is also handicap accessible.

Handicap Accessible MN Townhomes For Sale

Finding a handicap accessible MN townhome is not an easy task. Many MN townhomes are just are not made to be 100% handicap accessible. Sure, even if you look at the MN MLS you might search using terms such as one level living or all living facilities on one level, but that doe not necessarily make the MN townhomes for sale handicap accessible. To me a true handicap accessible MN townhome will have switches accessible, wider door ways that are accessible via wheelchair, wider hallways and one large detail, NO STAIRS outside. So many “one level townhomes” have a stair or two to get in. I recently had a conversation with someone about how hard this can be if you are in a wheelchair.

If you are considering looking at MN townhomes and need a good, quality built true handicap accessible townhome, we have the perfect place for you. We will be listing a Shakopee townhome this week that has everything I said above and is such a good neighborhood with such wonderful people there. I may be a bit partial being my Mother used to live in the neighborhood before she passed away. Anyway feel free to give me a call on the home, it is at 1935 Boulder Pt in Shakopee and we will be listing the townhome soon for $175,000. This handicap accessible townhome is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom one level MN townhome with about 1400 sqft. It includes a two car garage, sunroom, gas fireplace and a nice layout. Feel free to contact me if you would like to set up a showing.
