Market update Fox Valley week 36

Market update Fox Valley week 36         Market update Fox Valley week 36.  New listings of single family homes are up this week.  255 this week compared to 241 the week before.  Great news!  Any increase is very welcome.

Closed listings of single family homes were also up this week.  357 this week compared to 325 the week before.  Some of these were on the 31st of August and we are including them in this first week of September.  Most buyers do not want to close in the beginning of the month because they need to bring a whole month of interest along with other closing costs to the closing.  Some of these closings are getting pushed to the next week because of the loan not processing in time.  There is a lot of activity along with a lot of homeowners refinancing because the rates are so fantastic right now.

July is the best month so far this year.  You need to mainly focus on the Closed column.  New listings can be misleading.  Sometimes the same listing comes up as new after a period of time if it does not sell right away.  Contracts accepted do not always close.  Sometimes they do not make it past the home inspection and attorney review period so they might go back on the market and then get another contract.  We can check on that for you.
