Real Estate Market Update - Northwest Suburbs - May 2013

Welcome to the place to get those housing questions answered about the real estate market in the Northwest Suburbs!Northwest suburbs,schaumburg area real estate,

Our local inventory level has continued to decrease and are still at insanely low levels. My assessment is that our recovery would be better if we had the inventory for the available buyers. Multiple offers in many price ranges make it tough for buyers. If your home is still 90 days or more on the market the buyers have deemed it overpriced.

Prices? This has been the first report where all the average sales prices have increased across the board.

Foreclosures are increasing their prices- I have noticed that there has been substantial price increases (try $20,000 to $30,000) in foreclosures new to the market. Can't fathom where they justified these prices because they are the ones that bottomed out prices for the rest of us. Hope they have problems with those appraisals like regular sellers have!

I am optimistic about our Northwest Suburban market and when interest rates are so low, buyers should take advantage of the best affordability ever. This opportunity will not last forever as either price increases or interest rate increases can cut into your purchasing power. We have recently experienced an increase of 1/2% in rates.

Dear Lyn -

SO TRUE!!  "Our local inventory level has continued to decrease and are still at insanely low levels. " It is really hard to believe that the properties available are selling so quickly. Probably has something to do with the fact that there are so few choices!

Have a happy day -
