Home sales were strong last month across Minnesota. Chris Galler is president of Minnesota Realtors:

“We’re up 10.9 percent in closed sales across the state and pending sales were up 32-percent from a year ago. Now part of that is due to the pandemic that we had last year but it’s still very strong.”

Galler says they saw an 18-percent increase in new listings last month, however, it’s not matching demand. Eleven of the state’s 13 regions saw increases in closed sales compared to April 2020,
