Champaign County Housing Market Ended Strong in 2017!

by Rose Price

Champaign County home sales in 2017 reflected the second best year in the past decade!

The region saw a 2.47% increase in average home sale price for 2017 at $174,420 compared to the previous year at $170,217. The median home sale price (i.e. the typical market price where half the homes sell for more and half for less) for single family homes and condominiums was also up 3.45% from $145,000 in 2016 to $150,000 in 2017.

 

Along with the higher sale prices, the year saw a decrease in the total number of home sales in Champaign County. The 2017 year-end total in home sales was 2,882, a 4.79% decrease from the 3,027 total sales in 2016. The communities of Urbana and Mahomet (including surrounding region) saw more homes sold in 2017 than they did in 2016, while Champaign and Savoy (including surrounding region) saw a decrease. Homes sold quicker in 2017 than they did in 2016, with an average of 74 days in 2017 as compared to 80 the previous year.

 

The end results for the 2017 housing market reflect positively for this new year. Overall positive gains are predicted for 2018. Median home prices are forecasted to grow throughout the year. This is great news for sellers. And, as sellers see the higher prices, they will be more confident to sell. This results in increased inventory for buyers, especially with the upcoming spring season.
