It is normal for things to slow down after school starts and into the holiday months.   Homes do go on the market all year though. 

Buyers that had a hard time getting their offer accepted during the months of multiple offers, are still trying to find a home.

Financing became a bigger deal earlier this year when we started receiving multiple offers.  When you are a seller looking at multiple offers you want to choose the offer that is most likely to go through with the least possible issues. 

FHA used to be very popular. Loan officers more likely than not used to do a pre qualification for a FHA loan.  We had to get them to change that, and start doing Conventional financing, because that is what most seller’s were accepting.

Conventional Closed this week 212 with a median price $365,000, last week 168 at $371,829.

Cash closed this week 34 with a median price of #327,450, last week 41 at $278,000.

Buyer’s with the pandemic have been looking for larger homes.  More bedrooms, family room, home offices and larger yards.  We decided to add 2,000 or more square feet to show how many homes sold in this category and what the prices are.

2,000 or more square feet closed this week 167 at a median price of $416,500, last week 134 at $414,000.  Minimum price closed this week at $209,100, last week $291,000.  This gives you an idea of what buyer’s are paying for more square footage here in the Fox Valley.

Even with the least new listings 2021 saw the most closed homes in the last 3 years.

Look at the difference in 2019 with new listings to closed homes. 5070  more new listings than closed.  We saw it tighten up in 2020.  1,350 more new listings than closed homes.  In 2021 it flipped.  1,355 more homes closed than new listings.  They were carried over from 2020.

You can see why prices have increased with this tight of a market.  Some of those new listings were relisted as new even though they were not new.  If you just look at the closed column we increased each year.
