I thought I would add financing this week so you can see what is happening.  I did this a little later this morning than my first download so we have 2 more than what is listed above.

2021 Real Estate Market Update Week 27-Conventional and Cash

The one on the left is Conventional financing.  There were 153 with $379,900 the median closed price.

The one on the right is Cash.  There were 25 with $412,500 the median closed price.

2021 Real Estate Market Update Week 27-FHA and VA

The one on the left is FHA financing.  There were 26 with $291,500 the median closed price.

The one on the right is VA financing.  There were 4 with $417,950 the median closed price.

It is important to see the breakdown of what happening right now.  I will continue to list this so you can see if things start to change.

Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week were down.  270 this week compared to 325 the week before.  Last week new listings were down so that makes sense.

2021 Real Estate Market Update Week 27-Contracts accepted this week

Look at the communities seller’s accepted the most contracts:

Aurora-46                                   Bolingbrook-21

Montgomery-13                          Naperville-45

Oswego-13                                 Plainfield-39

St Charles-25

No short sales were accepted by seller’s this week.  With the prices going up, even if they need to sell because of not working, most likely they can sell without having to go that route.

Sellers accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer’s closing on their current home.  9 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 6 with 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

Also, seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer’s selling and closing on their current home. 2 with a kick-out clause of 24 hours.

Totals                 5928         6398                7679

Closed is the most important column to look at.  We started ahead at the beginning of the year with inventory left over from the previous year.  Not all of the contracts accepted will end up closing.  Sometimes they come back on the market after home inspection/attorney review period of after the appraisal comes in.   Prices have increased, and the appraisals don’t always match, so if they can’t come to an agreement the home goes back on the market.

It continues to be a seller’s market.

Thinking about selling this year?  Request a home valuation and let us know a little bit about your home and what you have updated.  We will let you know what it is worth in today’s market and 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 so you can make a good decision.

If you are thinking about buying a home this year you have to call a loan officer and get them all your financial information so they can get you pre approved.  Pre qualify will not do in today’s market.  You will probably be up against other offers when you do find a home so you want to let the seller’s know that you did this extra step.
