Winona, MN (PRWEB) May 23, 2013
Mr. Tobias Nergarden, director of Real Estate Marketing Insider announced that he had chosen Winona, Minn., as the winner of his weekly “Toby’s Choice” award. “Toby’s Choice” is given to the local market with the greatest potential for growth and sales. Mr. Nergarden made his decision after a report in the Winona Daily News described robust sales and growth in construction and renovation orders.
Realtors, homebuyers, and real estate branding experts from Winona are all in agreement that the market in the area is poised to grow. Realtors in the area said that sales figures are growing by leaps and bounds, and the average time on market for a property is dropping. Agents at Keller Williams also stated that they were seeing multiple offers for homes, a rare occurrence in the economic climate following the recession. While the area’s construction industry hasn’t quite hit its pre-recession numbers yet, the forecast is positive. Construction professionals note that increased interest in renovating new properties in the area indicates a return to home spending.
Mr. Nergarden released the following statement with the awarding of the “Toby’s Choice” title:
“A market doesn’t have to offer San Diego rentals on the beach or access to a major city to be attractive to buyers. Winona, a small town of under 30,000 people, is one such example. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the country, with gorgeous weather year-round and great opportunities for outdoor recreation. The in-town presence of Winona State University, the Great River Shakespeare Festival, and countless other education and cultural offerings make it a perfect choice for buyers who want culture, color, and activity without the bustle of a big city. Realtors who can tap into the Winona market and connect with the right kind of client will find it easy to sell properties in this market.”
REMI named the town of Winona, Minn., as “Toby’s Choice” Market of The Week, saying that it was a market poised to offer realtors great sales opportunities. The announcement came on the heels of a Winona Daily News report of community optimism about the real estate market.
