MARISSA HOPKINS' 2021 ANNUAL HOME SALES REPORT
Below is my 2021 Annual North Shore Communities Single Family Home Sales Report. What you have heard in the news is true... In 2021, the low inventory of homes and high buyer demand rocked the national real estate market (all states except Idaho!?), resulting in home price accelerating at the fastest rate in well over a decade. Of greatest significance, however, is what happened in your “backyard?” My report shows you a 5-year, birds-eye view of your community; not the nation or Chicago, as a whole.
Note: if your Northern Illinois community isn’t addressed in my report or if you own a condo or townhome and want to know about your market, please contact me and I can likely prepare a separate, similar report for you.
Will this continue? My crystal ball broker a few years back, so I can’t answer that. However, there are plenty of pundits speculating on this. What I can say is that January 2022 is mirroring the past two years with an extremely low supply, steady demand, a year-round market (forget the myth about the Super Bowl), and an abundance of eager buyers looking to move to the North Shore.
Thinking of selling? Being closer to family or warmer climates? Down or upsizing? Over the past two years there has been a huge gain in equity, making this a good time to sell. I’d be happy to schedule a consultation with you or anyone you know to assess your home’s current market value, listen to your unique needs and, if you want to know, share how I’d give your home the maximum amount of attention it needs to sell for the highest market price.
Want to buy? Many believe the rapid rise in prices is leveling off. Yes it can be challenging to buy in today’s market. But preparedness, step-by-step guidance, access to pre-market homes…and my professional relationships, experience, insight and dedication, will give you a far greater chance at making your dream home come true.
Your Referrals are Greatly Appreciated! If you know someone looking for homes to buy, wanting to sell, or with real estate questions… whatever their needs, I am here to help.
With gratitude & appreciation, I wish you and yours peace, joy & most of all good health throughout 2022.
