Last Friday, the Champaign County Association of REALTORS® announced the statistics for home sales in 2015. This was quickly picked up by several media outlets, and created quite the buzz with potential sellers and buyers alike. What is typically considered to be our “slow season” has been anything but. In December of 2015, there were 233 home sales reported, a 16.5% increase from December of 2014. The warmer temps have given the industry an advantage. More people are out looking at homes rather than waiting for better weather in the Spring. Even the frigid temps this week have not kept buyers indoors. Seller’s take note, people are house hunting; they are aggressive and ready to buy! Below you will find an info-graphic I created using information from the CCAR report released January 15, 2016.
