Palatine Single Family Market Update (08/03/2008)

Palatine currently has 368 homes active on the market with prices ranging from $184,900 up to $1,295,000. There are 40 homes currently under contract and 58 homes have closed in the past 90 days.

Palatine and surrounding areas are starting to see the number of active listings level off. This is a good sign as the supply of homes doesn't seem to be increasing. Naturally if the supply increases there is an increased risk of prices decreasing, when supply levels become steady prices tend to level off and the bottom of the market may be near.

Good homes priced correctly are still selling. If you are thinking of buying or selling a Palatine home contact the Suburban House Hunters Team.

Palatine Single Family Market Update (06/18/2008)

Palatine currently has 349 homes active on the market with prices ranging from $189,000 up to $1,295,000. There are 61 homes currently under contract and only 40 homes have closed in the past 90 days.

There has been an increase in activity in Palatine and surrounding areas over the past month and the number of homes under contract reflects this. There are currently more homes under contract then have closed in the past 3 months and that is a great sign.

If we continue to see improving numbers prices should level off and we should see a return to a more "normal" market.

Palatine Real Estate Market Update

Palatine Illinois is currently in a buyers market. That means there are more sellers looking to sell then there are buyers looking for homes. During a market like this home prices remain flat or drop in value. So far home prices have stayed about even in Palatine over the last 12 months.

Sellers also have to deal with longer marketing times. To make sure your home sells it needs to be clean, in good repair, and staged. When selling you need to put on a show, that is you market the home in the way buyers want to see it...not the way you normally would live in it.
