The under $200K market is moving faster than the over $200K.

Homes less than $200,000 since May 1, 2009 sold prices appear

to be selling for slightly more in Rockford Public School District

last month.  Foreclosure & bank owned homes could be keeping

the figures down.

The over $200K market has taken a slight increase in average

sold price from last month.  All good signs for Rockford sellers.

Inventories have increased with the summer market and sales are

starting to take off in Rockford over the last 3 months.  The absorption

rate is 8 months which is a normal market range for our area.

It appears that smaller homes are selling faster than the larger ones.

This is true across our market area, as people reassess their housing

needs. It appears that many are choosing to downsize in this economy.

It is important  that you have your  home in  great condition

and priced correctly. Over-priced homes and tired looking homes

will not sell for top dollar in this buyer’s market.
