Elburn, IL– June 15, 2022
According to movinglabor.com, 80% of all moves in the United States occur between April and September. Hardly a surprise when you consider more conducive weather and children on summer break. So, if you’re looking to own a new home this summer, Shodeen Homes offers ranch, two-story and low maintenance options at its newest Illinois community, Elburn Station, and a final opportunity at Blackberry Creek.
“Cooperative weather, schools on break and the opportunity to meet neighbors and explore the surrounding community all create a busy summer moving season,” said Jaynelle Then, Director of Sales for Shodeen Homes. “Buyers with an existing home are getting 12% more, on average, when selling now versus a year ago and with interest rates expected to rise later this year, now is the perfect time to get the most for your home buying dollar.”
