It is still a seller’s market here in the Fox Valley.  Prices continue to rise because of the low inventory of homes for sale.  This is a great time to be a seller.  It is frustrating to be a buyer.

Request a home valuation if you are thinking about selling your home and want to know what the value is in today’s market.  Give us some information about your home and what has recently been updated.  We will let you know what the expenses to sell might be.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms so you can make a good decision.

Get in touch with a loan officer and get them all your financial information and have them run you through underwriting so you are approved subject to the address, appraisal and title work if you are thinking about buying.  You have to be ready to go in this market .  It moves fast and if you haven’t completed this you will lose out on a home.

Set up email alerts so you receive listings as they hit the market so you don’t miss out on anything.

Closed listings of single family homes is the most important column to look at.  This is actual numbers.  September was the best month so far this year followed by July then August.

New listing numbers you can’t count on because some of them were canceled and relisted.  The same for contracts accepted. Some of them did not make it through the home inspection and attorney review period for many different reasons and were put back on the market and then get a contract again.

It continues to be a sellers market.  Low inventory is causing prices to go up and we are seeing multiple offers continue with so many buyers still trying to find a home.

Next week is the last week of the year.  We will compare this year to 2019 and 2018 so you can see how this year compares to the previous 2 years.
