Market update Fox Valley week 33

Market update Fox Valley week 33 Market update Fox Valley week 33.  New listings of single family homes were down this week.  264 this week compared to 279 the week before.  We are not heading in the right direction.  Inventory is extremely low already.  We need to increase new listings to meet buyer demand.  Interest rates are fantastic right now so if you want to get a larger home or maybe now is the time to downsize it is a great time to do that.

Closed listings is the main one to concentrate on for what the market did so far this year.  New listings can be canceled and relisted.  Contracts accepted doesn’t mean they will close.  It means that buyers thought the home fit their needs and negotiated an offer that was accepted.  Sometimes they don’t make it past home inspection and attorney review.  They might of accepted another contract with other buyers.  That is why that number is larger than new listings.  Some buyers found another home others did not.
