Contracts accepted this week by seller’s on single family homes was pretty consistent. 322 this week compared to 321 the week before. Consistency in the market is a wonderful thing. Some talk about it slowing a bit. Maybe there are not as many offers on a property as there was, but buyers are still out there looking to buy. It continues to be a seller’s market here in the Fox Valley area of Illinois.
Look at the communities seller’s accepted the most contracts:
St Charles-27 Yorkville-14
No short sales were accepted by seller’s this week. That does not mean that they are not out there. Most people that need to sell, that normally would be selling short, have had enough price appreciation that they can sell and payoff the loan.
