Expert Tips for Home Buyers & Sellers

As your Chicagoland real estate agent Michael LaFido, I want to be your resource for all things real estate. Whether you are buying, selling, or investing in real estate, I am here to guide you through the process. Subscribe to this blog to learn all of the latest news from our local market and receive expert tips for buying or selling a home.

2016 State of the Union Address for Real Estate


Considering Selling in 2016: Click here for a Free Price Evaluation
Considering Buying in 2016: Get Gateway Access to the MLS

There are a lot of indicators and different factors that can affect real estate. As I'm filming this, we've had the four worst days ever to start the year if you follow the DOW index. How does this affect real estate? We'll be talking about that today.

Real estate always comes down to supply and demand, and right now we're seeing a buyer's market for many luxury homes. This means that there are a lot of luxury homes available, which is good news if you're in the market for a new home. In Chicagoland, home prices also increased by 3.5%, which is a very healthy level of appreciation. This is a little under the national average, but it's still some nice improvement. We expect prices to increase by 4.6% this coming year. 



We're also projecting that nearly one million new single-family homes will be built around the country in 2016, and there were only 740,000 built this year in 2015. 

Mortgage rates are also increasing this year, and they're projected to hit 4.75% by the end of 2016. It's a great time to buy because interest rates aren't getting any lower. If you buy now, you can save thousands and thousands of dollars in interest over the life of your loan. As a seller, you can earn top dollar since many motivated buyers will enter the market due to rising interest rates.

If you need to buy or sell a Chicagoland home, please let us be your resource. We are not afraid of doing the hard work, and we recently just completed seven pages of research in order to sell a home in particular market. We're not afraid of rolling up our sleeves in order to get your home sold.

We look forward to hearing from you!
