Recent movement in the Munster Indiana real estate market shows that the prices of single family homes slightly recovering from their lowest bottom during January.  Home prices made an impressive peak last summer but fell back and stayed flat at the end of 2010. While some people may be alarmed by this slide, similar market shifting has been happening across Northwest Indiana. Munster still outranks next door Highland Indiana by almost 14% on a price square foot basis.

The typical Munster Indiana condo lost around  $9,000 during the past year but prices have stabilized during the last 2 months with the median condominium asking price curently being just under $124,000. The numbers for early February are showing a slight  up tic, so perhaps we have moved beyond the bottom.

What does all this mean? If you are a BUYER looking for a home in Munster Indiana, this is an unprecedented opportunity to buy property at the lowest prices in several years. Interest rates have already started to climb, so many experts are predicting that this is as good as it will get.  If you are a SELLER you need to get very real about your pricing.
