Where is the Market now?
May 19, 2013
We are off to our best start on many many years, matching the activity levels of the 2006 boom market. Missing is the dramatic price increase (at least dramatic for Chicagoland) that happened in 2006. This is the tear to sell your home. Call the Bakers today at 847-255-9346..
With 66,000 pending foreclosure cases in Cook county alone, the
prediction is the market will drop in 2014.
For sellers considering selling now is the time to call ther Bakers!
The shortage of homes on the market
will over time lead to higher prices, but there is still a large potential shadow inventory of
REOs that banks may have not listed. (visit our foreclosure page).
The decrease in the price of homes of the past years still leaves
many homes open to short sales, which drag down prices. Unemployment
still remains high and State budget problems are putting a
higher burden on the taxpayers. Other states across the
nation are fairing much better. So keep this in mind when you get
the national real estate news .
