Before doing that if you are interested in the data I compiled, just click here. The approximate asking price for detached homes in Inverness for toady, April 2009 is $750,000 compared with $898,000 in 2005. So what kind of property can you buy at $148,000 less than 4 years ago? Well the average house in this price range is about 3500 square feet, has 4 bedrooms 3 and a half bathrooms, on 1 acre lot with a 3 car garage.

I thought residents of Inverness might like to know how well sales of homes are doing compared with the exact same time last year. I am comparing April 2007 to April 2008 with April 2008 to April 2009. I will round the numbers up for ease of reading. During the year April 2007 to April 2008 there were 74 detached homes sold. The average asking price was $778,000 and the average selling price was $731,000. This means homes were selling at 94% of the asking price. The average market time was 294 days.During the year April 2008 to April 2009 there were 40 detached homes sold. The average asking price was $756,000 and the average selling price was $691,000. This shows that homes were selling for 91% of the asking price, the average marketing time fell to 164 days. Now what was happening in ...

Inverness Illinois is a small town that shares the Palatine and Barrington zip codes. If you are interested in buying a foreclosed home in Inverness there are just a couple of things you should know before you dive in. Collectively there are hundreds of foreclosures in northern Illinois, but if you are very specific about the area you want and about the accommodation you need, please do not expect there to be hundreds for you to choose from. Banks sell foreclosed homes AS-IS most of the time. That means you do not get to negotiate for repairs. Banks generally will not sell to you if you have a home to sell or that needs to close before you can close the purchase. Offers must have either a pre-approval letter or proof of funds letter when we send the offer in. Pre-Qualification letters d...

There is currently 1 residential property for sale in Inverness that is marked as a short sale. It also states the property does require some TLC. The price of the home is under $500,000 and it is an older property built in the late 1950's. Some of Inverness has the zip code of Barrington but there are no additional short sale listings under the Barrington zip code for Inverness properties.

There is obviously plenty of gloom and doom news in the media about the struggles of national new home builders and the fact that new home starts are at the lowest levels nationally in the past 16 years is certainly an indication that some areas were obviously a little overbuilt.I Love Good News so I thought I would highlight it here with the sales for KB Homes in their Creekside at Inverness Ridge development. Only 28 Homesites remain and with the current chart shown below, prices have gone up which is a trend that shows that the Barrington and Inverness area is doing ok compared to all of the gloom and doom you may be reading in the media. Only 28 homesites remain and as you can see from the chart below, prices for the Marquis floorplan (2,610 Square Feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 Baths) ...
