According to new data from the Minneapolis Area REALTORS® and the Saint Paul Area Association of REALTORS®, both buyer and seller activity was down in April, but the number of residential showings has reached a new high for the year.

In no particular order: coats and life vests are cumbersome, @katiehollemn prefers full sun and it turns out kids don’t think “interesting experiences” are as enriching as @lakeminnetonkasothebys does. Navigation without the buoys keeps you on your toes, so it was refreshing to see the buoy barge today installing our favorite navigational beacons in all the right places. See you on the water Lake Minnetonka.

DNR asks people to adhere to social distancing guidelines while boating

Boating is allowed under Governor Walz's Stay-at-Home order.

"They're going to be new routines we have to go through to handle some of those people, but I suggesst they be patient and be very safe," said Jabbour.
