Fox Valley Market Update August 17 2019
Fox Valley market update August 17 2019. New listings of single family homes was down this week. 315 new listings this week compared to 360 the week before. So many schools started back up this week for will next week. I am sure that has had an impact on housing slowing down. Once they get settled back into their routines it will probably get back to normal.

- August so far-1,003

- August so far-890
If August continues the same for the next 2 weeks it could end up the best month for closings for far. May has been the highest month so far for New listings closings and contracts accepted.
Contracts accepted this week
Contracts accepted this week of single family homes were down. 212 this week compared to 249 the week before. Again I think this is due to school starting or getting ready to start for some.
2019 look at contracts accepted by the month of single family homes:
- August so far-772
I think it is important to look at the months that people are making decisions to purchase. It changes a little bit each year. A lot of it has to do with inventory. Some people end up looking for months. It depends on what price range you are in. Under $200,00 it is hard to find. You have more choices above that price range.
