This is the place to get those Northwest Suburban real estate questions answered all right!
What are Prices Doing? Average sales prices are relatively stagnant compared to other areas of the country. Still just plunking along in the Midwest. Average Days on the Market pretty much stayed the same into January.
With our decreased amount of inventory for January we are definately in a sellers market based on our statistics. Inventory has decreased 19% from 2016. With this low inventory the market should turn toward sellers with price increases this coming spring market. But will it happen? Stay tuned .....
How about some Down Payment Help? There are many great down payment assistance programs available that I can get you through my valued mortgage partners. Check them out or pass this along and share with someone who might need this kind of help. Some of these programs offer 1% to 5% help based on your criteria. This is really great help (blessing) that is not offered often!
