Buying a Duplex:
There are more buyers than sellers
Buying a duplex in Minneapolis or St. Paul is incredibly difficult because they tend to sell before they’ve even hit the MLS systems. Inventory is an issue when it comes to duplexes, which means that when we’re approached by a buyer, we’re able to provide them with a unique advantage if we’re able to connect them to a seller.
