Sold! Top Minnesota Luxury Homes & Estates

2021 proved to be the best year in history for Minnesota luxury home sales, as the pandemic disrupted and transformed yet another economic market. Pent up demand chased a record low supply of luxury homes, causing prices to jump significantly. In Minnesota, we had 1,600+ sales of homes over $1 million, 200+ sales of homes over $2 million, and 50+ sales of homes over $3 million, with primary growth taking place in the Edina and Lake Minnetonka markets.  Here are the top 5 sales from the luxury markets:
