You should be able to click on the picture above to make it bigger so you can see how the other communities did and the price ranges.  Some communities are on this list every week.  They are more active.  This makes a difference when you are looking for a home.  You always have to think about resale.

Contracts accepted this week

10 19 2019-Market Update Fox Valley-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week were very consistent. 193 this week compared to 192 the week before.  Buyers are still out there looking.  If you price your home according to location and condition it should sell.  If not you will need to lower price or start fixing it up.  Not everyone looking wants to take on projects.

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

Aurora-24            Bolingbrook-13

Naperville-37       Plainfield-28       

St Charles/Campton Hills-15

Short sales accepted by sellers this week were still low.  5 this week.  1 each in Batavia, Bristol, Naperville, St Charles/Campton Hills and Sugar Grove. Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept.

Sellers accepted contracts this week that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home.  6 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 12 with 48 hours.

Contracts were also accepted by sellers that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home.  7 with a kick-out clause of 48 hours.

2019 by the month

I think it is interesting to see the totals by the month for New listings of single family homes, closed and contracts accepted so you can see how they change.

2019 by the month:

                        New         Closed         Contracts accepted

January               878         407              608

February          1,032         465              832

March             1,731         915           1,375

April               1,594         790           1,307

May                2,004      1,391           1,665

June               1,643       1,253          1,218

Totals          13,879       8,985         10,755

Not all homes that come on the market sell.  Some of them cancel the listing or they either need to adjust price or make some updates.  Paint does wonders!

Contracts accepted does not mean they will close.  The majority of them do but some of them might run into issues with the home inspection that they can not come to an agreement.  Sometimes when they do a more in-depth credit check things show up that can’t be resolved in time. 

Having an experienced REALTOR® and good real estate attorney makes all the difference in getting through issues that come up.
