What's going on in the Champaign County, IL real estate market?

As the statistics above indicate, the number of home sales in greater Champaign-Urbana for October 2012 exceeded the number for October 2011, and at this point, there's no doubt that total home sales for the entire year wil exceed last year's figure. Yay :-) Also interesting is that there was a significant decrease in the average days homes spent on the market. All year we've had lower inventory and more sales compared to last year, which has led to more competition for buyers and, it seems, fewer days on the market for sellers. I would expect days on the market to increase a bit as we head into the slower, winter months; however, I also suspect we'll maintain low levels of inventory as we have all year. All things considered, it's not a terrible time to have your home on the market.
