The Nebraska Real Estate Market
The 2020 pandemic has created a challenge for the real estate market. However, creative forms of selling have created a shift in how real estate is sold.
Nebraska’s real estate market has become a more affordable housing market compared to other states and, at the same time, sees a reduced number of houses as demand goes higher. However, the affordable nature of upscale housing does not compromise quality regardless of price. You will get everything from heated garages, pools, supersized mansions, gourmet kitchens, and beautiful views.
To better understand the affordable nature of the Nebraska real estate market, the price currently stands at $104 per square foot for normal houses, whereas for luxury houses, you get a square foot at $213. Pre-pandemic market listings had about 3,500 listings, which have been reduced to hard-to-find, and fast-selling listings, which have between 500–600 homes maximum with an exclusive listing of about 50 homes that pass the million-dollar mark.
One great thing about the Nebraska real estate market is that buyers don’t have to compete with the impossible prices in other states. The most luxurious options for an upscale home in Nebraska will see you spend at least $5,750,000, which is a great value per square foot. You can get a mansion from as low as $1,000,000 and even a few options below the million-dollar mark.
Most places where you can get affordable upscale homes include Bellevue, Kearney, Lincoln, Grand Island, and Omaha.
When choosing the right homes, you have a couple of options, including buying a home or a DIY option. However, if you do the math, building materials have increased in cost, plus staffing shortages are also a problem, making purchasing a house the better option.
You can never go wrong in spending for a home and all the luxuries that will make your day-to-day worthwhile. With the above listings, you have various choices. However, you might also just be looking for fun. Either way, we hope you enjoyed this list of some of the most expensive homes found in the state of Nebraska.
