Activity this week Fox Valley May 13 2017

Activity this week Fox Valley May 13 2017.  The Spring market is still going strong!   356 New listings this week compared to 397 last week.  193 Closed listings this week compared to 257 last week.  The beginning of the month is going to slow down the closed listings more will close at the end of the month.  The story this week is the listings that went contract pending 372!  That is more than the New listings for the week so we are still having trouble with low inventory.  As soon as they go on the market they are gone if they are in decent shape and priced right.  Take a look at the communities with the most activity this week:

Aurora-Closed 29 New 42 Contract pending 57

Batavia- Closed 6 New 13 Contract pending 10

Bolingbrook-Closed 18 New 27 Contract pending 36

Geneva- Closed 8 New 14 Contract pending 15

Montgomery-Closed 5 New 15 Contract pending 14

Naperville-Closed 27 New 63 Contract pending 67

Oswego-Closed 12 New 20 Contract pending 21

Plainfield-Closed 25 New 41 Contract pending 44

St Charles-Closed 11 New 37 Contract pending 25

West Chicago-Closed 6 New 13 Contract pending 13

Yoerkville-Closed 8 New 10 Contract pending 13

You can see that the listings that went Contract pending are equal to or more than the New listings.


Buyers you need to be the first ones in and to write the offer right away.  If you are just starting to think about purchasing and need to talk to a loan officer do that right away.  We can recommend a few to contact if you don’t know where to start.  Go to CFPB to get information about the loan process or we would be happy to talk to you about it. Down payment Resource is another place to look for information.  You might need to start looking 4 months before you want to move.   It might take a little while to find a home that you get your offer accepted.  Multiple offers are going in on a lot of the properties that are priced right and in good shape.


Sellers now is the time!  If you have thought about selling this year now is the time to put it on the market.  Make sure your home is clean, extra items packed away and repairs made.  Price it right from the beginning and you will most likely not be inconvenienced with showings for a long period of time.  Making your home easily accessible is very important for showings.  Take a look at your home from the street and make sure the yard is in good shape and flowers planted so you have good curb appeal.
