September marks the beginning of everything in the Twin Cities cooling down. With the kids back in school and the temperatures dropping, the housing marketing starts its annual cool down as well. Nationally, buyer and seller activity remained strong, buoyed by low mortgage rates and a strong economy. The market fundamentals suggest no significant changes from recent trends, other than the seasonally tempered pace we see this time of year.
