So far May is the month with the most activity all around.  New listings, closed homes and contracts accepted.  Not all contracts accepted end up closing. Some come back on the market after the home inspection that might have an issue the buyer and seller can not negotiate a resolution to the issue.  Other ones the financing might not get approved.  The majority of them do close though.

Just under 60% of the new listings that came on the market have closed.  Slightly under 80% have gone under contract.  The other 20% either need to make improvements, lower price or both.  If you are not getting showings or they have slowed down you need to rethink price and condition.

Take a look at the communities that seller’s accepted the most contracts this week:

Aurora-41                                        Bolingbrook-24                                        Geneva-11
