April showers bring May flowers and a warm day here and there - or a blanket of snow here and there!! I’m itching to put my overalls on and be knee-deep in the mud working in my yard - let’s all keep our fingers crossed that that weather gets here soon!
Many people are asking us if the current interest rates are affecting activity in the market. Of course when interest rates go up it does restrict buying power for some but we are still seeing a very strong market. The inventory remains at a historical low and even though the interest rates are creeping up they are also historically low. Most houses are receiving an offer within the first couple of weeks.
I feel like we are a broken record every month announcing our need for inventory. Every Monday we post market stats for the prior week on our social media pages. If you are curious about what your house is worth and if it is a good time for you to enter the real estate market please reach out. Even if moving is a few years out for you we do think it is always important to know the value of your home.
Give us a call anytime at (630) 790-5904 to discuss your next chapter.
