Market Update Fox Valley-February 2 2019

Market update Fox Valley-February 2 2019. New listings were lower this week  181 new listings this week compared to 209 last week.  Not too bad with the sub zero temperatures we had for 3 days this week.

Closed listing almost doubled.  141 closing this week compared to 82 last week.  Unbelievable that some of these closings still happened with the sub zero temperatures we had for the last 3 days of the month.  These people will definitely remember their closing and moving day!

Contracts Accepted this Week

Market Update Fox Valley-February 2 2019-Contracts Accepted this Week

Contracts accepted this week were slightly higher this week.  181 contracts accepted this week compared to 172 last week.  Sub zero temperatures did not keep people from making decisions on buying or selling.  Applications like Docusign have really helped with getting signatures when it is not possible to get them in person. Some of these might have been postponed because of the weather.

Take a look at the communities that Sellers accepted the most contracts this week:

Aurora-30                              Bolingbrook-16                            Naperville-31

Oswego-14                            Plainfield-21                                St Charles/Campton Hills-11

Short sales were down this week.  1 this week compared to 3 last week.  The 1 was in Aurora. Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept as written.

Sellers accepted contracts that are contingent on the Buyer closing on their current home before purchasing.  4 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 6 with 48 hours and 1 with 24 hours.

Contracts were also accepted by Sellers that are contingent on the Buyer selling and closing on their current home before purchasing.  4 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 4 with 48 hours.

The market is still moving along.  Spring market is just around the corner.  Now might be the best time to sell with less competition.
