Market Update Fox Valley September 23 2017

Market Update Fox Valley September 23 2017.  Almost a repeat of the week before.  266 New listings this week compared to 267 last week.  You can’t get much closer than that!.  These numbers are still low though.  There is still low inventory in most areas.  It is still a good time to sell if you have been thinking about it.

Closings were up slightly from the week before.  194 this week compared to 188 the week before.  We are getting closer to the end of the month so they will probably go higher next week.

The top chart above shows you how many new listings there were in each community and the minimum and maximum list price.  It also shows you how many closings there were in each community with the minimum and maximum sold price.  The communities this week with the most activity:

Aurora-New 40 Closed 34

Bolingbrook-New 26 Closed 16

Naperville-New 48 Closed 27

North Aurora-New 15 Closed 10

Plainfield-New 35 Closed 22

St Charles-New 26 Closed 16

This is important if you are looking for a community that consistently has a higher volume of activity.
