Bloomingdale, Illinois Homes | Looking Back at the 2007 Real Estate Market

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX All Pro

snowflakesWith the encouraging increase in activity the Bloomingdale real estate market and surrounding markets have seen, we think 2008 is going to be a good year.

There is no denying that the housing market was not what it has been in the past but things are changing for the better. Sellers realize they have to do a little more preparing and sprucing up of their homes before putting them on the market. They are a lot more realistic about their asking price and their negotiating price. There is no more "take it or leave it" kind of attitudes. Both parties are truly negotiating again!

Real estate agents have to do more than just put a sign in the ground and enter it in the MLS. The successful REALTORS have extensive marketing plans and different kinds of marketing tools they use to result in an attractive and successful contract for purchase.

We are in the best kind of opportunity market. There is still no better investment than a real estate investment so now is a good time to buy, sell and purchase those investments.

That is very true.  With our market going back to a "normal" market, people are negotiating again.
