Fox Valley Market Update-April 27 2019

Fox Valley market update-April 27 2019.  New listings of single family homes are up this week!  405 this week compared to 341 the week before.  Great news for buyers that are having a hard time finding just the right home in the right location. There is more to choose from.  If you are having a hard time finding a home in a certain location let us know. We will see what we can do.

Look at the activity so far for this year for New listings of home:

  • January-878
  • February-1,032
  • March-1,731
  • April so far-1,594

There is only 3 days left of the month so I do not think we will catch up to March totals.

Closed listings this week were exactly the same as the week before.  208 this week and also the week before.  Monday and Tuesday will be busy with closings so that will bring up the total for the first week in May.
