The most expensive Minneapolis/St. Paul home sales of 2023

Despite a general market slowdown, luxury homes are still selling for high prices in 2023, including a sale that was one of the biggest deals seen within the past few years.

This year so far, the top 10 single-family homes that sold have totaled $78.5 million, according to Business Journal research and NorthstarMLS data provided by Minneapolis Area Realtors.

That’s already ahead of last year’s total of about $77 million, the Business Journal reported last year.

Here are the top 10 single-family home sales in 2023, according to data from NorthstarMLS through Minneapolis Area Realtors and Business Journal research, from the least expensive to most expensive sale price:
