Davenport, Iowa Real Estate Pricing Rises!!!

The Median Real Estate sale price rose over 20% for the Davenport, Iowa/Quad Cities area!

Quad Cities area by Lucky Lang 

In the third quarter of 2006, the median home sales price for the Davenport, Iowa/Quad Cities area was $111,500.  With numbers just in from the third quarter of 2007, the Davenport, Iowa/Quad Cities area recorded a median home sales price of $114,600.  This increase represents a 2.8% increase in the past year in spite of a slow market!  The statistic that is even more spectacular is a whopping 21.8% increase in the past six years!!!  You may read the entire article in the Des Moines Register.

What these numbers indicate to me is that our recent slump in sales over the past two years is turning the corner and we are likely in the best buying opportunity that we will see!!!  Because of all the negative news of severe price declines across the country, many buyers have taken a "wait and see" attitude about purchasing real estate

While the Davenport, Iowa/Quad Cities metropolitan area has seen some price slippage in the past two years, the market appears to be recovering.  This is great news to sellers of real estate and builders in our area!  It is also a wake-up call for buyers!

If you are renting, or are considering a move up in real estate, this could be your best opportunity with pricing still affordable and interest rates at a very good level. 

Example:

If you are looking to purchase real estate in the $150,000 price range, your principal and interest payment with a 6.5% interest rate would be only $948.10 per month.  If you wait until this time next year, and the current trend continues, we could see that $150,000 property become $154,200.  Now that may not seem like much of an increase, however, the monthly payment would now be $974.65.  That represents $9,558 over the life of a 30 year loan!!!

Another crippling factor would be if the very low interest rate of 6.5% goes to 7% (which is very possible).  That same monthly payment would become $1,025.90.  This increase would mean spending an additional $28,000 over the life of the loan!!!  If you would like to see what these changes would mean to you in your price range, go to LuckyLang.com and click on the Finance tab under my picture.  Or you may simply contact me at the information below:
