Contracts of single family homes were slightly  down this week.  317 this week compared to 336 the week before.  That is not too far off.  So many people are busy with the end of school and graduations.  Some even out of town.

Look at the communities this week that seller’s accepted the most contracts:

Aurora-46                            Bolingbrook-22                                   Geneva-15

Fox Valley Market Update May 4 2019-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted by Sellers was up slightly this week.  338 this week compared to 311 the week before.  We have had nothing but rain. It has not kept the Buyers away though.  They know that they better look now or they will miss out on a property.  You can’t sit back and wait for a better time.

Look at the communities that Sellers accepted the most contracts this week:

Aurora-45                                Bolingbrook-20                                 Geneva-12                              Montgomery-10

  • January-608
  • February-832
  • March-1,375
  • April-1,307
  • May so far-338

So far this year March has been the best month over all.  May is looking like the month to pass up March. We are off to a great start this month.  Don’t sit back and wait.  It still is a great time to get your home on the market or look for a home to purchase.

Short sales accepted by Sellers is exactly the same this week as the week before.   3 both weeks.  Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept as written.

Contracts were accepted by Sellers that are contingent on the Buyer closing on their current home before purchasing.  9 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 13 with 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

If you are thinking about buying a home you need to get pre-qualified with a loan officer first.  They will give you a letter that will go with an offer when we find you a home.  It states what you qualify for and what type of loan you will be going for.
