2021 Real Estate market update week 24 Cover

2021 real estate market update week 24.  New listings of single family homes increased slightly.  315 this week compared to 297 the week before.  Any increase is welcome!  It continues to be a sellers market.

Closed listings of single family homes increased.  337 this week compared to 317 the week before.  They should increase as we head into the end of the month when most buyers want to close.

I just realized today’s download separated Aurora/Eola and St Charles/Campton Hills.  Normally they are combined.

Thinking about selling this year? It is still a sellers market.  Request a home valuation and we will let you know what it is worth in today’s market.  We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell so you will have an idea of where you are at.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms.

Are you wanting to buy a home this year.  You need patience and perseverance.  There is a shortage of homes for sale so you most likely will be up against other buyers trying to get the same home.  Get a loan officer that will do a pre-approval not just prequalify.  Get your tax returns ready and all financial information together to submit to them.

Resources:

If you need recommendations for real estate attorneys, home inspectors and loan officers let us know.  We will provide a few for you to contact so you can decide who you want to work with.

2021 real estate market update week 24.  Have a great week!
