May 29, 2024

There’s plenty of reasons to feel thankful to live in Springfield — and the homebuying market is one of the biggest, cheapest reasons.The U.S. median home price was $412,000 in September 2023, which is a 2% increase since September of 2022; meaning post-covid lapses in home-buying prices are disappearing and raised prices in 30-year mortgages are straining first-time homebuyers from entering the market.

If you’re looking to purchase a house as a first-time home buyer, look inside the city for savings and historic architecture where one-bedroom houses are down 17.2% from last year’s annual report from Rocket Homes.Until those brick and wrought-iron dream houses are within reach, take a glimpse into waterfront living in Sangamon County with the most expensive homes sold in April.
