It almost seems hard to believe but the end of 2016 has arrived and all the fun-filled festivities that take place every single New Year’s Eve in Duluth are finally upon us. Looking back at the year that was, 2016 was a very healthy year for the Duluth real estate market, as recent housing statistics show the median sales price around the Duluth area kicked up to $161,000, and the median rent price inched its way up to $1,365.
In terms of what to expect from the housing market next year, most industry experts are projecting continued growth in terms of sales and home prices, although at somewhat of a slower pace than what we saw in 2016. But before we look too far ahead into 2017, we still have a festive weekend ahead of us, which is why The Duluth Transit Authority (DTA) has teamed up with Miller Lite to offer Duluth-area residents and visitors free transit rides on New Year’s Eve.
The Miller Lite Free Rides will be available on all regular bus routes from the DTA starting at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday December 31st and run through 2:20 a.m. on New Year’s Day. In fact, if you’re planning to spend your New Year’s Eve around downtown Duluth, keep in mind that the last buses will depart from downtown at 2:20 a.m., leaving you no excuse to get behind the wheel this New Year’s Eve.
