Market update Fox Valley week 49

Market update Fox Valley week 49Market update Fox Valley week 49.  New listings of single family homes are up 42.86%.  130 this week compared to 91 the week before that was Thanksgiving week.  Holidays can make a big difference.

Closed listings of single family homes were up 52.33%.  294 this week compared to 193 the week before.  When you have a holiday at the end of the month some of the closings get pushed back to beginning of the next month.  It is hard to get them all in in 3 days.

We are heading into the final weeks of the year.  Most of the sales now will most likely close in the new year unless it is a cash sale.

Contracts accepted this week

Market update Fox Valley week 49-Contracts accepted this week







Contracts accepted this week were down 5.08%.  187 this week compared to 197 the week before.  Not too bad when the week before we were way down in new listings.  Not a lot of choices for the amount of buyers that are out there.  We are still seeing multiple offers.

You need to have a good strategy in place right now if you are a buyer.  You need to be ready to go look and not hesitate to write an offer.

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

Aurora-28                                      Bolingbrook-17

Naperville-23                                 Plainfield-31

St Charles/Campton Hills-17

2 short sales were accepted this week by sellers.  1 each in Aurora and Batavia.  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.  5 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours,  2 with 48 hours and also 2 with 24 hours.

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

Totals                   11960    11192           13550

The closed column is the most important one.  These numbers show you what actually happened.  New listings and contracts accepted columns are inflated with homes that could of been relisted as new or received a contract and did not go through and then received another contract.

September so far is the best month for closed homes.  Usually it drops off a little after school starts but not this year.  It is still a sellers market.  There are more buyers than homes for sale.  This has caused prices to rise.  Interest rates are still fantastic!

Some people don’t realize how good the market is right now.  They think because of the pandemic the market is not moving but it sure is.
