Mark Waldhoff and team are not only passionate about helping you achieve your real estate goals, but also strive to stay 2 steps ahead of the other Realtors in Champaign. To learn more about Mark, visit www.champaignexperts.com.
Today, we talk to Mark about a recent May 5th Crain's Chicago article 'Why Champaign homeowners are such a depressed bunch'. In that article, Mark Waldhoff was intereviewed and quoted. The theme of the article was negative for Champaign-Urbana, but the underlying message (that CU home values have not rebounded as well as the rest of the country) has come into question.
When it comes to topics like this, it is always great to talk to an industry expert. In this interview, we will get Mark's opionion on the overall market, what factors he considers important, and whether or not he agrees with the premise of the article.
Thanks for listening!
