Munster Indiana Real Estate Market Summary February 2011

March 11, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

There has been little relief for Munster Indiana single family residential homeowners (Chart 1) during February. What seemed like a fledgling plateau in January prices,  never materialized into a floor, but kept on falling. With good jobs and qualified buyers so scarce, prices continue to slide. The average home in Munster Indiana lost nearly $6,000 in value since the beginning of the year, according to this chart.

Condo’s did better with a flattening of the 4 month long fall/winter slide (Chart 2). With prices holding fairly firm for the past four months, let’s keep an eye on this plateau to see if this turns into a legitimate market bottom and indication of a more stable condominium and townhouse market.

Obviously 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. Serious sellers will need to stay ahead of the curve by setting their prices low enough to generate offers for their home, or else watch the competitors get all the attention.
