Minnesota Department of Revenue real estate transaction data



Information about real estate transactions is considered to be public information in Minnesota. The data is collected by the Minnesota Department of Revenue. Revenue provides the database each year to the University of Minnesota Department of Applied Economics for use in educational programming. The data on farmland sales is anonymized and certain items are uploaded to the University of Minnesota website “Minnesota Land Economics” where reports can be generated by county or other boundaries. Total acres in the parcel, tillable acres in the parcel, and price can be viewed or downloaded down to the township level. This database includes the original data files provided by Revenue, including all real estate transactions, in CSV format, for the years 2010-2021. The yearly files cover October 1 to September 30. The data for some years is split into several files. A CSV file is included with column names and descriptions for 2018, and another with the column names for 2021.
