12 7 19 market update Fox Valley.  New listings of single family homes were significantly up this week. 173 this week compared to 100 the week before.  We are in the first week of December and had a full week.  Last week was a holiday week and short a couple of business days.  That really has an impact on activity.  Above we have pictures you should be able to click on to make larger.  The first ones shows the activity for the week.  The next 2 show the active listings of single family homes in Kane and Kendall Counties. It is broken down so you can see how many homes are available in each price range.  Both of those show that the price range $250,000-$299,999 have the most homes.  If that is not your price range you can see the amount of homes to see are more limited.

Closed single family homes this week were slightly down.  142 this week compared to 154 the week before.  It is the beginning of the month.  Most buyers prefer to close closer to the end of the month.

Take a look at the communities this week with the most activity:

Aurora-New 23 $123,900-$469,000

            Closed-25$95,500-$1,472,540

Contracts accepted this week

12 7 19 Market Update Fox Valley-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week on single family homes were pretty consistent with the week before.  127 this week compared to 133 the week before.  These numbers are low though.  You have to go back to January to see these numbers.  There is still activity but nothing like Spring or Summer markets.  Now is the time pricing your home is most important.   If you are overpriced it will just sit there.

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

Aurora-24              Bolingbrook-12

Naperville-17         Plainfield-17

These are the communities that consistently do the most activity.  I am surprised St Charles is not one of them listed here.

There were 3 short sales accepted this week.  2 in Bolingbrook and 1 in Plainfield.  Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept as written.

Sellers accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home.  2 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 3 with 48 hours and 1 with 24 hours.

Contracts were also accepted by sellers that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home. 3 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 2 with 48 hours.

Some of these new listings of single family homes are listed as new then after a couple months are canceled and relisted as new again so tht figure might not be correct as far as how many homes were listed as new.  They might of been counted twice or more.  Not all contracts accepted end up closing.  Buyer might have trouble getting financing or during the attorney review and inspection period issues sometimes can come up that do not get resolved.  It is very important to have a good REALTOR® and real estate attorney to help resolve any issues that come up.  Most can be resolved if handled correctly.  Others will take too much time to resolve so everyone moves on.

Not all contracts accepted end up closing.  Some of those have gone back on the market and then another contract was accepted.  This is the critical time that it is very important to have a good REALTOR® and real estate attorney that will guide the buyer through expectations of a home inspection and negotiate repairs and attorney review.

Contracts accepted this week

Fox Valley Market Update September 28 2019-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week were slightly down this week on single family homes.  204 this week compared to 229 the week before.  That is not too bad.  I would say that is pretty consistent.

Communities this week with the most activity:

  • June-1,218

  • August-1,211
  • September-869

          Total-10,175

There is a difference on contracts accepted and closed listings.  Not all contracts that get accepted close.  I thought you would be interested to see those numbers.  Is it the loan officers not pre-qualifying the buyers well enough?  Sometimes when they go to do a more in-depth credit check things come up that do not come up on the initial time they run it.  Some things can be resolved and others take more time.  Home inspections sometimes come up with issues that either will not work for the type of loan the buyer is going for or the issues could not be negotiated between buyer and seller that they both can agree on.  There are many issues that can come up so you can’t count on your home closing until it closes. That is hard when trying to plan on where you will be going if you are a seller.  Working with good lenders, REALTOR® and attorneys can make a big difference in how issues are negotiated and how hard they work on them to get resolved.

Contact us

Call us with your real estate questions at 630-503-6555.  Our goal is your goal.  Whether you are buying, selling or both we will work hard to meet your goals.  We will let you know what you need to do to get your home ready for market.  Provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell so you know where you are at.

If you are thinking about buying you need to talk to a loan officer first to get pre-qualified so you know what type of loan will work for you and the price range.  What type of loan you choose will determine the condition the home must be in.  If you find a home that needs repairs and the seller is not willing to do them and you have the money you can set up an escrow account if it is under $5,000 for repairs.  If it is over that amount you will need to get pre-qualified for a loan that will allow you to make the repairs.  This is a different kind of approval.  Separate from the normal approval.  We can talk to you more about this or your loan officer can explain it to you.

It is still a great time to sell or buy so get in touch with us so we can get you started.

Closed listings of single family homes were slightly higher this week. 292 this week compared to 221 the week before.    This was not a typical month.  Usually the end of the month you see the most closings.  The first week there were 341 closings but most of them were the end of July closings in the first part of that week and ending on August 3rd.  The 3rd week ending on August 17th was the next highest with 255.   They were trying to close before the first day of school starting.

Closings by the month in 2019:

  • January-407
  • February-465
  • March-915
  • April-790
  • May-1,391
  • June-1,253
  • July-1,029
  • August-1,403

          Total-7,653     August was slightly higher than May so far this year.  The school year calendar was the driver for this years activity. 

Contracts accepted this week

Fox Valley Market Update August 31 2019-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week on single family homes was slightly lower this week.  227 this week compared to 234 the week before.  Not too bad for the hustle of the kids getting back to school and Labor Day coming up.

Contracts accepted so far by the month for 2019:

  • January-608
  • February-832
  • March-1,375
  • April-1,307
  • May-1,665
  • June-1,218
  • July-1,090
  • August-1,211

          Total-9,306    May so far is the busiest month for contracts accepted by sellers.

You are probably wondering why I am keeping track of when contracts get accepted but I do think it is important.  When you look back at the month with the most listings you see that it makes sense.  March was the next highest month for new listings and it is also the next highest month for contracts accepted.  Buyers had more choice.

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

Aurora-43                                     Batavia-11                                    Bolingbrook-15

Montgomery-11                            Naperville-32                                Plainfield-34

St Charles/Campton Hills-19

Short sales accepted this week still remain low.  3 this week compared to 1 the week before.  1 each in Naperville, St Charles/Campton Hills and Yorkville.

Sellers accepted contracts this week that are contingent on buyer closing on their current home.  3 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 5 with 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

Contracts were also accepted by sellers that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home.  5 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 4 with 48 hours and 1 with 24 hours.
