House Sales Slow In Okawville, Rise In Nashville
By Debby Stricker
House sales in Okawville Township decreased from 40 in 2020 to 35 in 2021, according to records of Supervisor of Assessments Office. Despite the decline, the 35 sold was still higher or tied with 17 of the past 24 years.
The decline was due to a shortage of houses available, rather than a lower demand, said C & C Realty broker Christy Lackey. “Everything priced right and not needing much work sells,” she said.
This week only one house in Okawville is listed on the MLS. In Nashville, only 4 houses are listed on the MLS, down from typically 27 to 30 houses in past years, according to Lackey.
The broker said that although the heavy demand is waning, it is still a great time to sell because of low interest rates and more demand than supply. “It still has to be priced right to sell,” she said.
