Fox Valley home prices December 4 2021

Fox Valley home prices December 4, 2021.  New listings of single family homes are up.  102 this week compared to 82 the previous week.  Still ridiculously low.  It usually slows down this time of year.  That does not change buyer’s hopes for finding a home though.

Closed listings of single family homes is up.  244 this week compared to 158 the previous week.  Monday and Tuesday was the end of November when most buyer’s want to close.  Some of these were put off to the beginning of this month because of not getting everything accomplished before the Thanksgiving holiday.

2000 SF or more December 4 2021
2,000 square feet or more

Conventional is still the most used way to finance buying a home.  If your loan officer qualified you for FHA financing you should ask them to also qualify you for Conventional and see where you are at.  You might be able to purchase a higher price with FHA but if you are up against another offer the seller will most likely take the Conventional offer over FHA.

June was the best month of the year so far.  I don’t think December will have that much activity.  There is always reasons people need to sell so don’t give up if you are a buyer.

Even though things have slowed down it is still a great time to sell.  Not much competition out there.

Call us with all 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 your home.  We will let you know what your home is worth in today’s market and give you a net proceeds that shows you an estimate of the expenses to sell.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms.

Thinking about buying a home?  You need to get pre approved with a loan officer.  Get all your financial information together and get it to your loan officer so they can get you pre approved.  Seller’s want to know that you qualify for their home before they will even consider an offer from you.  The loan officer will give you a letter that shows what you qualify for and what type of loan that will go with an offer when you find the right home.

It is our job to make sure you qualify before we take you looking at homes.  You do not want to fall in love with a home that you don’t qualify for.  We look at many things like how much the taxes are or if the home needs work.  If the taxes are too high or if there is a homeowner Association fee sometimes that can put you over what you qualify for.  It depends on what type of loan you are going for if there are things the home needs to repair and the owner is not willing to make the repairs.


Check with your loan officer for the interest rates you qualify for with your credit score.  The better your credit score, the better the interest rate you will be offered.  If you need to work on your credit score your loan officer will be able to give you some guidance on how to bring up.

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