Realtors in Bloomington-Normal are seeing signs to get a little excited about more newly-constructed home options for buyers.
Karen Stailey-Lander, president of the Bloomington-Normal Association of Realtors, says there was a 12.8 percent decrease in the number closings of newly-built homes during June compared to last year. But she says pending sales during the month were up slightly.
"Those, actually year-to-date, exceed what we had last year. Just by one percent, but we were just hoping to catch up with last year and hopefully exceed it this year," Stailey-Lander said.
