Maloof Reaches Into Bloomington-Normal Housing Market With Crowne Merger

The leaders of a newly combined real estate company are bullish on the housing markets in Bloomington-Normal and Peoria, despite slowing sales and a dip in prices in 2019.

There were 2,408 home sales in McLean County in 2019, down 6.2% from 2018, according to Illinois Realtors. The average price of a home fell 3.6% to $159,000.

Low inventory continues to be a drag on the Bloomington-Normal market, especially in the $150,000 to $275,000 price range, said Tammy Heard, executive vice president at Peoria-based Jim Maloof/Realtor, which recently merged with Heard’s Bloomington-based Crowne Realty. There’s also been less corporate relocation, she said.

#MaloofPlays Episode 6: DaVinci Exhibit at the Peoria Riverfront Museum
The greatest Genius in the history of mankind? This is incredible exhibit makes a strong case. Our Peoria Riverfront Museum has been knocking it out of the park with incredible exhibits – but, this one is special – bringing you face to face with the amazing historical impact of this amazing mind. I ran into rockstar Realtor Mark Monge – as you’ll see we were both too enthralled to talk. So much to see and learn! The Exhibit runs through March 2020.
