Hi, the ask to sell ratio has change over the last year. Much of this depends on where the home is priced. A home the is priced extremly well will sell quickly and many chances very close to asking (95%+).
I personally live in Algonquin, just a subdivision over from the Coves. I would be happy to help you gather any information you may need or help you determine if this is the area you are most interested in.
In addition, I have a great tool on my website, Market Snapshot. You can get free montly market updates and it will include recent solds, actives as well as other information such as Community and School information.
Feel free to visit anytime, it takes less than 2 seconds to fill out the form and you can have the report in minutes. Also, don't hesitate to call or email me anytime, I would be happy to help you find a great home in the Algonquin and surrounding areas.
