2021 Real Estate market update week 25 Cover

2021 real estate market update week 25.  New listings of single family homes is down.  285 this week compared to 315 the week before.  This is so discouraging for buyers that are waiting for new listings to come on the market.  They just can not come on the market fast enough.  Prices continue to rise because of the shortage of homes on the market.  Some buyers are even getting priced out of the market.

Closed listings of single family homes was also down.  292 this week compared to 315 the week before.  Monday through Wednesday next week I am sure will be busy.  The last days of the month when most buyers want to close.

Call us at 630-503-6555 with all of your real estate questions.  Your goal is our goal.  We will do everything we can to help you reach your goal.

Request a home valuation if you are thinking about selling this year.  You will see what your home is worth in today’s market.  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.

Thinking about buying this year?  You have to be both patient and on the ball.  You will most likely be up against multiple offers  When a listing comes on the market you have to be ready to go see it that day.  Getting prequalified is not enough.  You need to get preapproved.   If your loan officer will not do that, find another one that will do it.

If you will be buying with cash, you will need a letter from your financial institution stating that you have the money available to purchase that priced home plus closing costs.

Resources

If you need recommendations for a real estate attorney, home inspector or loan officer we can give you a few to contact so you can decide who you want to work with.

Buying/selling a home is very exciting.  It also can be very stressful.  We will guide you through the process and explain everything to you so you know what to expect.
