Real Estate Statistics Champaign IL

What’s happening in the Champaign, IL housing market?

As we move into the summer months, total home sale numbers steadily increase while the absorption rate falls, an expected seasonal change. I would caution against putting much weight in the high average sales price figure this month compared to a year ago as these numbers can fluctuate significantly month to month. The number of homes on the market at month-end stood at 1,797 compared to 2,062 a year ago, a significant difference, and our low inventory has been a trend in the Champaign market for nearly six months.

One thing worth mentioning is the current interest rates, which are again historically low. If you’re not planning on moving but you currently own your home, you may want to research the possibility of refinancing, speak with a local lender, and determine if it makes sense for you.
