Market Update Fox Valley-January 26 2019
Market update Fox Valley-January 26 2019. New listings were not far off of the number last week. 209 new listings this week compared to 224 last week. That is not too bad for the weather we are having. It was a real mild winter up until this week. We are really going to hit the low temperatures next week.
Closed listings were another story. They were way down when they should be going up with the end of the month but the holidays contributed to these low numbers. 82 closed homes this week compared to 115 last week. There is 4 business days next week for the end of the month so we should see higher numbers next week.
