Market update Fox Valley week 37

Market update Fox Valley Week 37 Market update Fox Valley week 37.  New listings were down 16.86% this week.  212 new single family homes listed this week compared to 255 the week before.  So many people are getting adjusted to school starting either in person or remotely.  Hopefully this will be a better week coming up because we are definitely going in the wrong direction with new listings.

Closed listings were also down this week by 39.50%.  216 closed single family homes this week compared to 357 the week before.   It is typical to have lower numbers in the beginning of the month.  Last week Monday was the last day of the month of August and some of the others were most likely supposed to close at the end of August and were delayed.  We are seeing a lot of delays because of the lender not getting the loan processed in time.

Contracts accepted this week

Market update Fox Valley week 37-Contracts accepted this week Contracts accepted this week on single family homes was down this week by 20.36%.  266 contracts accepted this week compared to 334 the week before.  Inventory  is extremely low.  We need a wide range of prices of homes to come on the market to meet the needs of buyers.

Look at the communities that sellers accepted the most contracts this week:

Aurora-40                             Bolingbrook-23

Geneva-10                            Minooka-11

Naperville-50                        Oswego-16

Plainfield-30                         St Charles/Campton Hills-18


2 short sales were accepted by sellers this week.  1 each in Aurora and Montgomery.  Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept.

Sellers accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home. 10 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 9 with 48 hours and 1 with 24 hours.

Also, sellers accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home.  1 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 4 with 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

This gives you an idea of how many buyers are out there ready to go and willing to write a contract.  Not all of these will close.  Some of them will not make it past the attorney review and home inspection.  They will be activated again.

Closed is the column you want to pay the most attention to.  July was the best month we have had so far this year.  Usually that is a slower month with people on vacation.  This has not been a typical year.  It has turned out way better than I expected with a pandemic going on.  I still find people that don’t pay attention to what is going on and are surprised that the market is so active.
