Home sales in Minnesota and across the country posted bigger than expected declines last month, according to two reports released this morning. 

In Minnesota, closings were down 9 percent compared with last year, according to the Minnesota Assocation of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors said that seasonally adjusted sales across the country fell 4.3 percent compared with the previous month.

Despite those declines, the median sale price of all closings during the month increased 9.7 percent in Minnesota and 9.4 percent nationwide.
