Northwest Suburbs Real Estate Market Update - May 2014

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Suburban

This is the place to get those Northwest Suburban real estate questions answered!northwest suburbs

Our Northwest Suburban inventory level has increased significantly again in May. This would be worrisome but homes are going under contract so no concerns over a short glut in inventory. Price your Northwest Suburban home well, make sure it shines with staging and you will be rewarded with an offer. This sudden increased inventory has more sellers vying for the eyes of the same buyers. 

What about Prices?  Prices are currently flat from month to month but have increased over 2013. All real estate is local so each different neighborhood and town is reacting differently to the market. Some neighborhoods still have not had any sales since reaching market bottom. Can't have any prices increases if there are no listings to sell!

Average Days on the Market tells homeowners how long it's going to take to sell their home! Each market area is different but it's still puzzling that we have low inventory levels but prices haven't really risen. It's that basic principle of supply and demand but it hasn't worked to sellers advantage. If your home is currently on the market for over 90 days, buyers are definitely giving you feedback - change your price or change your condition!
