Contracts accepted this week
Contracts accepted this week on single family homes was almost the same. 296 this week compared to 299 the week before. Next week this should increase with the amount of new listings this week.
Look at the communities seller’s accepted the most contracts this week:
Plainfield-42 St Charles/Campton Hills-26
Only 1 short sale was accepted by a seller this week. It was in Plainfield. Now it will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept.
Seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home. 5 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 5 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 1 with 48 hours.
These contingencies have really scaled back with the multiple offer situation that is occurring. Seller’s want to accept an offer with the least hurdles to get past.
