What’s going on in our Champaign, IL real estate market?
Yet another December has passed us by and the month ended up looking a lot like last December…at least in terms of real estate! As you can see above, actual statistics for December 2011 were pretty similar to December 2010. Overall, days on the market has increased this year, yet we ended December with about 5% fewer homes on the market than last year and with a lower absorption rate (see chart below).
What this means is that we’re off to a slightly better start for 2012, at least as far as sellers are concerned. As for buyers, keep watch on those interest rates as they’ve once again reached all-time lows and there’s no way of knowing how long it will last.
