July 2018 Home Sales

July 2018 Northwest Indiana Residential Home Sales

Hey Everyone it’s your favorite Realtor here in Northwest Indiana just giving you a quick update with how the Real Estate market is looking. So I’m comparing July 2018 vs. July 2017 to give you an idea of how the market is currently compared to a year ago.

To start, I’d like to say home sales are up tremendously in a price per square foot average. Infact the price per square foot is up 11.25% in 2018 over 2017. Not only that but homes are selling 29.54% faster with an increase in sales of 7.53%.

I know there are still some buyers out there that feel like they would like to get a deal on a house and etc.  So, to give you an idea, all homes sold in July of 2018 sold for 98% of list price but homes sold within 30 days sold at an average of 99.12% of list price. I personally feel like homes are selling closer to 100% of list price but they’re closing at a lower list price average because of appraisal cuts. We have definitely seen appraisal cuts in the market this year. Most of them are minimal, like $900,  but you do have your larger price cuts from time to time.

Anyways I just wanted to give you this update of how the Real Estate market is currently and if you have any questions my phone is always on. (219)406.7195

Brent has stuck by my side through the whole process. If I want to see a house, immediately he sets up a time and we are looking at the house. You can always get ahold of him. He is very knowledgeable too!


Brent is an amazing person, He helps in any way he can to his fullest! He isn't just doing his job, he goes above and beyond. With any question given, he has an answer every time and even if he did not know the answer, he would do whatever research needed so... (more)

Brent is very hardworking. Best realestate agent to have. He showed me tons of homes in my price range and offered his expert opinion and background of the neighborhoods we were in.
