Dakota County First Time Homebuyer Information

Dakota County Housing Market Update

I work with many First Time Homebuyers in the Dakota County area and many of them take advantage of the Dakota County bond program that helps with down payment and closing costs assistance for buyers who meet certain qualifications.  For several months, I have noticed that there are not as many homes available for sale as there used to be.  Many of my First Time Homebuyer clients search for single family homes under $150,0000, so I did some research to see what has been going on in Dakota County for the past few months in the under $150,000 price range.

Since Dakota County is pretty large and my clients tend to search within 2 different parts of the County, I separated the County into 2 parts: Western Dakota County (Eagan, Lakeville, Apple Valley, Burnsville, Rosemount & Farmington) and Eastern Dakota County (South St. Paul, West St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights, Hastings etc.).
