It's been a long slog through the last 8 years; fighting the negative impact that foreclosure and short sale properties had on home prices in our neighborhoods.

Bolingbrook and Plainfield to a lessor degree, has been struggling with home prices due to a glut of distressed properties on the market over the years. I assert that the struggle may be over.  While the national picture of valuations have been in the news waving the flag of overheated prices, many of our residents have been disappointed to hear how much their home is worth. Everyone has an impression that their home is worth more than the price range suggested by a real estate professional. The trend in both communities is down over the last 3 years.

Plainfield SSThese data matter when deciding to sell your home and at what price. With the numbers I gave you last week about months supply and number of new listings, now would be a good time to discuss your options with a real estate professional.
