We are doing slightly better than 2019 but less than 2018 in closed single family homes.  We are way down on new listings.  Our totals for closed could be even better if we had more homes on the market.  Especially if we had a wider range of prices.

It is a great time to sell.  Even this time of year.  Buyers are still waiting for homes to come on the market.  Multiple offers are still happening on homes that are in market-ready condition and priced right.  Request a  home valuation and we will let you know what your home is worth in today’s market.  Provide you with a net proceeds that shows you an estimate of expenses to sell and give you an idea of what you have to work with.  This will be updated once you get an offer and we know all the terms. 

Thinking of buying a home?  You need to be ready to go and flexible with your time and go when a home first comes on the market or you will miss out.  You need to call a loan officer and get pre-qualified and make sure you keep it up to date once they give you a letter showing what you qualify for.  It can’t be more than 30 days old.  You might find a home over the weekend and have a hard time getting in touch with your loan officer to update it so keep an eye on the dates.

Check out some great resources:

If you are having trouble paying your mortgage because of Covid-19 check with IDHA to see if you qualify for assistance.  This ends September 4th but do not wait until the end they might run out of money for help.  If you do not qualify and are having a hard time and want to sell to get the money out of your home to move give us a call.

Market update Fox Valley week 35.  Have a great week!
