Hi Leo,

It depends on your horizon. Are you looking to sell some time this year, next year or longer? What are your goals if you sell, will you be buying up or down? It may be more of a question as to what your goals are than trying to predict the bottom of the market. My suggestion is that you consult with a professional on these questions before you make any decisions about the market.

In my opinion, I thin they will continue to increase in value. That area has had substantial growth over the past few years. It is famous for its school system.
I think you should hold on a bit more, but that's just my opinion!

Going by the number of homeowners behind on their mortgage currently, it is hard to say that the market has a positive aspect to it in the future. It's hard for a Realtor to suggest sell or wait, but ask for MLS data and you can make the decision for yourself. It's difficult to determine what is expected because we are trained to base things off of what is active and sold, not what is coming.

I hope this helps, it's a tough situation.

Hi Leo! Timing the real estate market is like timing the stock market- not something most people do successfully. The answer is not a simple yes or no, but rather to look at the reasons you are thinking of selling, where you would go from here in Oak Park (I''ve been here over 20 years!) Are you over 55? Depending on where you are moving to, you may be able to take advantage of proposition 60/90- which allows a one time transfer of your property tax base, if you meet certain guidelines and requirements.
