Market update Fox Valley-February 15 2020.  New listings of single family homes was down 14.49% this week.  295 this week compared to 345 the week before.  We are definitely going in the wrong direction.  Inventory is low already.  I hope it picks up this week.

Closed listings were up 25.81% this week.  117 closed single family homes this week compared to 93 the week before.  These numbers will increase as we get closer to the end of the month when most buyers want to close.

Single Family Homes

Contracts accepted this week are up 5.8%.  237 this week compared to 224 the week before.  Not much of an increase.  Weather might of been a factor for this week.  We did get snow and very cold temperatures.  We have been very lucky this winter.  It has been pretty mild.

Aurora-28                             Bolingbrook-21

Naperville-38                        Oswego-17

Sycamore-11                        Yorkville-11

5 short sales were accepted by sellers this week.  2 in Oswego and 1 each in Minooka, Naperville and Plainfield.  Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept.

Contracts were accepted by sellers that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home.  4 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 6 with 48 hours and 3 with 24 hours.

Also contracts were accepted by sellers that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home.  3 with a kick-out clause of 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

2020 activity by the month

Month                         New     Closed     Contracts accepted

January                    1105        566                858

February                     640        210                445

We are half way through the month and new listings and contracts accepted are on track to pass up the totals of January.  Usually January and February are slower months but this year with the mild temperatures people are not waiting for Spring market.  They know once Spring market hits they will have more competition. Now is a great time to be a seller!
