11 16 19 Market Update Fox Valley

11 16 19 Market update Fox Valley.  New listings of single family homes were slightly down this week.  193 this week compared to 220 the week before.  Any amount of new listings down has an impact for buyers.  That means there are less homes available to them to see.  If you are looking for a home over $200,000 you have more to choose from then buyers looking under that amount.  We are still very short in inventory for buyers looking under $200,000 price range.  If you have a home in that price range to sell this would be a great time to get it on the market.

Closed single family homes were very consistent this week. 173 closed this week compared to 176 the week before.  Consistent is a good thing!

Some of these new listings of single family homes are listed as new then after a couple months are canceled and relisted as new again so tht figure might not be correct as far as how many homes were listed as new.  They might of been counted twice or more.  Not all contracts accepted end up closing.  Buyer might have trouble getting financing or during the attorney review and inspection period issues sometimes can come up that do not get resolved.  It is very important to have a good REALTOR® and real estate attorney to help resolve any issues that come up.  Most can be resolved if handled correctly.  Others will take too much time to resolve so everyone moves on.

2019 by the month

I think it is interesting to see the totals by the month for New listings of single family homes, closed and contracts accepted so you can see how they change.

2019 by the month:

                        New         Closed         Contracts accepted

January               878         407              608

February          1,032         465              832

March             1,731         915           1,375

April               1,594         790           1,307

May                2,004      1,391           1,665

June               1,643       1,253          1,218

July                1,423       1,029          1,090

August           1,585       1,403           1,211

September     1,164          765              869

October            825          567              580

Totals          13,879       8,985         10,755

Not all homes that come on the market sell.  Some of them cancel the listing or they either need to adjust price or make some updates.  Paint does wonders!

Contracts accepted does not mean they will close.  The majority of them do but some of them might run into issues with the home inspection that they can not come to an agreement.  Sometimes when they do a more in-depth credit check things show up that can’t be resolved in time. 

Having an experienced REALTOR® and good real estate attorney makes all the difference in getting through issues that come up.
