This is a great kick off for the year for Coralville. The biggest “problem” at the moment is the lack of inventory. It’s been a long time since there were so few homes on the market in Coralville! If you’ve got a house to sell in Coralville there’s no better time to list your home than when there aren’t  many homes on the market. Less homes on the market means less competition for you. There’s plenty of buyer activity in Coralville right now and that’s another good reason not to wait until spring before listing your home!
