2021 market update week 9. Here in the Fox Valley new listings of single family homes are up. 190 this week compared to 152 the week before. The gorgeous weather we are having has prompted sellers to get going on putting their homes on the market. We are very excited about that. There just is not enough homes for buyers to look at and this is helping. We still need more so let us know if you are thinking about selling.

Some closing that should of closed at the end of the month spill over to the beginning of the next month. Next week they might be slightly lower and then will pick back up as we get closer to the end of the month when most buyers want to close.

Thinking about selling this year? Buyers have not stopped looking. There is not enough homes on the market. It is a great time to sell! Request a home valuation and give us some details about any improvements you have made and some of your homes features. We will let you know what it is worth in today’s market. Also, we will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell. This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms.
If you are wanting to buy a home this year you need to contact a loan officer to get prequalified before you begin. Get 2 years of tax returns, pay stubs and all your payment and investment information together before you call. They will provide you with a letter that shows what type of loan and price that works out best for you. We will attach this with an offer when you find a home so the sellers will know that you do qualify for their home.
