What’s going on in our Champaign IL real estate market?
Numbers may be slightly down for this month compared to March last year, but I, for one, am not discouraged! Activity, in general, is picking up as we head into the warmer months and the numbers for this year will undoubtedly look quite different from last year. The reason? Last April was the deadline for the first-time homebuyer tax credit. What happened was our numbers looked great leading up to that deadline…and then dropped off considerably. This year we will no doubt see more of a gradual bell curve.
Look for my first quarter of 2011 market report to be published here on my blog in the next few days!
