MINNEAPOLIS — According to Chris Galler, CEO of Minnesota Realtors, the housing market is running hot across Minnesota this fall.

Despite the pandemic, listings have been increasing for the first time since March. Pent-up demand, low interest rates and more sellers putting homes up for sale is fueling vigorous activity, Galler said. Every single region across the state of Minnesota has experienced a year-over-year increase in closed sales.

Minneapolis was shaken in late May after George Floyd died in Minneapolis Police custody. Protests soon followed, which were in turn followed by nights of looting and violence.

Dozens of businesses were burnt and many more damaged or burglarized. Now as local businesses are picking up the pieces a new organization is looking to help not only rebuild but support the Northside into the future.

The Upper Northside Business Association (UNBA) is a partnership between businesses, residents and Council Member Phillipe Cunningham. The association was recently founded and is dedicated to supporting local businesses in the Fourth Ward of Minneapolis, according to Founding Chair Anika Robbins.
