Like this $212,000 Roscoe home? Sorry, a sale is already pending.

Roscoe and Rockton are seeing the fastest climbing home prices in Winnebago County.

In her July 2022 local market updateAngela Ketelsen of Keller Williams Signature Realty says the median sales price was $349,900 in Roscoe, $265,400 in South Beloit, and $403,872 in Rockton, even though "mortgage rates went from 2.98% to 5.52% and are still expecting to rise. More people are selling, so that means buyers have more options. However, inventory is lower than normal and buyers need to be ready to purchase right away when they find something."

In June 2022, Ketelesen reported 52 active & available houses which had been on market for an average of 28 days. But most homes sell faster: 96 sales were pending, with an average of only 5 days on market.

Ketelsen says, "The first half of the year, home sales increased by $21,700. Even with interest rates on the rise, houses are still selling at higher price points and selling quickly. The higher prices are not expected to fall anytime soon and are going to continue to rise."
