As the real estate market in the Iowa City area gets hotter, the more worthwhile it is to keep an eye on Tiffin. Tiffin is just 4 miles west of Coralville making it close enough to be a strong contender on location for buyers, especially if the amenities they need on a day to day basis are on the west side of Iowa City or in Coralville. The fact that the Clear Creek Amana Middle School and High School are both in Tiffin makes it a very popular choice for buyers with families. Add the fact that there are lots of new construction homes that are always a hit with buyers and you can see why the positive trends in the Iowa City area real estate market are likely to have a positive effect long term on growth in Tiffin.
At first glance 2014 wasn’t as strong for Tiffin as you might expect from a town with so much going for it. 59 Homes Sold in 2014 compared to 72 in 2013.
Home Sales in Tiffin January – December 2014
On the upside, single family home sales are up in Tiffin in 2014. Condo and zero lot sales are down. To illustrate my point in the last paragraph about the lack of inventory of homes on the market – There are currently 36 homes listed as active in Tiffin on the MLS and 25 of them are in the new construction phase and won’t be finished till spring.
Single Family Home Sales Up in Tiffin in 2014
Do you have a house, condo or zero lot to sell in Tiffin? There’s a very good chance that you will be competing with new construction homes when you put your house on the market. It’s all the more important in this competitive environment to show potential buyers that buying a “nearly new” or older home has benefits too. Choosing the right agent who appreciates that and knows how to market a home, (and not just list it), will make the difference to how quickly and how smooth the sale of your home is.
