plainfield short sales: Lower Inventory of Short Sale Listings Make Buying Easier! - 02/18/14 02:36 AM
It's been a S-L-O-W market over the last 2 months.  The winter has been brutal!  I'm so excited about the spring market, especially after going over some of the short sale stats here in Plainfield IL!
Right now there are 329 active single family listings in Plainfield.  42 of those listings are short sales comprising just 12.7% of the active market.  We are still at a lower inventory of homes available in general, but it has been an extremely cold and snowy winter.  A lot of buyers are holding off on listing their homes for sale until the weather improves.

plainfield short sales: Some preservation companies deserve an "F" for job performance! - 05/04/11 05:17 PM

plainfield short sales: Bankruptcy and Short Sales... why waiting to file bankruptcy might make more sense. - 03/08/10 02:25 PM
