What’s happening in the Champaign IL housing market?
The numbers for September 2012 look quite similar to the numbers from September 2011 in terms of the local real estate market. Total residential home sales in Champaign were down ever so slightly, but it still seems almost certain that we’ll end up with more sales total and a higher average sale price for the year overall. As you can see from the chart below, the absorption rate for Champaign County was virtually the same for September of 2012 and 2011, but we ended September 2012 with roughly 8.5% fewer homes on the market than there were the previous year. So far all year we’ve had a significantly smaller inventory of homes for sale, which is great news for home sellers and has aided in stabilizing our local Champaign housing market.
