WHAT THIS MEANS FOR STREETERVILLE CONDO BUYERS

More inventory means more choices for buyers and more competition for sellers, but I wouldn’t call it a buyers’ market. You still need to be ready to buy when you find a home you want. If you will be financing your purchase, get your mortgage pre-approval before you start touring homes. Contact me for recommended mortgage consultants. If you’re paying cash, get a proof of funds letter from your accountant or banker ready to go. Contact me to get started.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR STREETERVILLE CONDO SELLERS

If your home is priced right when it goes on market, it should sell in less than 4 months. The average days on market was 130 days. With significantly rising inventory (competition) you definitely shouldn’t price your home above market. Most buyers finance their purchase. Your home will need to appraise for at least sale price for financing to be approved. The appraised value is primarily determined by recent comparable sales.
