Home Sales Jump 12.5 Percent in Channahon from Dec. 2012-2013

Single, detached home sales dropped 16.7 percent in Minooka.

The 9 single, detached homes sold in Channahon during December 2013 represented a 12.5 percent increase from December 2012, when 8 homes were sold, according to the Mainstreet Organization of Realtors (MORe).

Meanwhile, Minooka saw a decrease of 16.7 percent in home sales. A total of 10 homes were sold during December 2013, compared to 12 sold in December 2012.

Among the 59 Patch communities surveyed, the number of homes sold increased 8.2 percent, slightly below the rise seen across the estimated 200 Chicago suburbs MORe tracks.

“There’s no question that 2013 was an outstanding year for the Chicago-area housing market,” said Michael Parent, president of MORe and Vice President of Operations for Burnet Title’s Chicago Region. “In some ways it was even better than predicted, especially in regard to the upward trend in prices.”

Parent noted that the extreme cold we’ve experienced in 2014 has slowed the market, but he’s optimistic for the rest of the year.

“We expect to see good inventory coming on the market and an increase in buyers by the end of January,” he said. “Those are the homes that will be closing in April and May of 2014.”
