Blessed With Pricing

I normally post open houses and listings, but I want to take a quick moment to run a story by you

My sister and brother in law just got an amazing deal on their house in a western suburb of ELGIN, IL.   Sometimes I hear that pricing in Des Moines is really high, and I want to shed some perspective on that, if you've always lived in small town midwest.

Let me say first, that my sister and brother in law absolutely STOLE this property, when you run it against comparables and what's available in the area.   

$195,000 - 3BR 2BA 1550 sqft Two Story that needs $6000 of cosmetic work and a lot of yard treatment, built on a slab with no concrete in the driveway.

Fantastic value for what is around them.

Someone commented to me the other day that $210 for a 2014 build of the same type of house with a finished basement in Norwalk was way too high.

I just want that to sink in.  We live in a state with great housing prices, economy, job opportunities and lower cost of living than our eastern neighbor.

Just count your blessings, there's normally a lot
