The lower end of the Rockford  market is moving faster than

higher priced homes for the first quarter sales in 2010.  With

interest rates already starting to rise and with buyer tax credits

disappearing after the first quarter, long listing times in Rockford

will likely continue into 2010, with prices driven down by weak

buyer demand.  Absorption rates have improved from last

year with lower priced homes being the “hot market”. 

Higher priced homes are seeing more activity than 2009

but are still not back to normal sales levels.

Inventories will probably increase with the spring market and

buyers will have their pick of the best homes for sale.

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.
