2021 Real Estate Market Update Week 13
2021 real estate market update week 13. New listings on single family homes were down this week. 192 this week compared to 222 the week before. Hopefully the holiday week is holding people back from putting their home on the market and it will pick up next week. Until more homes start coming on the market prices are rising rapidly and multiple offers is the norm. Very frustrating for buyers right now.
Closed listings on single family homes increased this week. 274 this week compared to 209 the week before. End of the month is the busiest for closings. Most buyers want to close at the end of the month so they bring less money to closing for interest for the month.
Take a look at the communities with the most activity this week:
Aurora-New 31 $125,000-$735,000
Bolingbrook-New 15 $186,000-$480,000
Naperville-New 45 $249,000-$2,100,000
Oswego-New 11 $100,000-$549,900
Plainfield-New 25 $218,000-$1,190,000
St Charles/Campton Hills-
West Chicago-New 4 $239,000-$489,000
Yorkville-New 4 $249,900-$398,000
Median list price of single family homes this week is $359,700 and the median sold price $352,500.
Contracts accepted this week
Contracts accepted on single family homes were almost the same this week. 299 this week compared to 293 the week before. That is pretty consistent.
Look at the communities seller’s accepted the most contracts:
Plainfield-44 St Charles/Campton Hills-25
No short sales were accepted by seller’s this week. That does not mean they are not out there.
Seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home. 3 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 2 with 48 hours.
Also, seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home. 1 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 2 with 48 hours. Accepting contracts with contingencies other then financing are slowing down because of multiple offer situations. Sellers are looking for offers with the least amount of hurdles to get past to get to closing.

Closed is the most important column to look at. These are actual numbers. New and contract accepted can be counted twice if a property is relisted or a contract is accepted and it does not get past home inspection and attorney review. Still this year we had the lowest new listings but the most closed homes.
You can see why the prices are rising with the limited inventory of homes. Until more homes come on the market the prices wil continue to rise. Buyers are waiting to pounce on a new listing. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to sell!
