February was a big month for home sale. And not just in Springfield.
Statewide numbers from the Illinois Association of Realtors show a strong increase in sales numbers across Illinois… up 16-percent in February compared to the same month a year earlier. Median home sale prices were also up around the state, a year-to-year increase of five-percent. The numbers are strong, especially for February, which is typically a slow month for home sales.
But the statewide figures are not as strong as the Springfield numbers, which were up 30-percent this year over last.
