Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week by seller’s on single family homes was pretty consistent.  322 this week compared to 321 the week before.  Consistency in the market is a wonderful thing.  Some talk about it slowing a bit.  Maybe there are not as many offers on a property as there was, but buyers are still out there looking to buy.  It continues to be a seller’s market here in the Fox Valley area of Illinois.

2021 Real Estate Market Update Week 29-Contracts accepted this week

Look at the communities seller’s accepted the most contracts:

Aurora-53                           Batavia-13

Bolingbrook-23                  Geneva-10

Montgomery-12                 Naperville-50

Oswego-14                         Plainfield-46

St Charles-27                   Yorkville-14

No short sales were accepted by seller’s this week.  That does not mean that they are not out there.  Most people that need to sell, that normally would be selling short, have had enough price appreciation that they can sell and payoff the loan. 

Seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home.  3 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 10 with 48 hours and 4 with 24 hours.

Also, seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer selling and closing on their current home.  2 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours and 3 with 48 hours.

So far June is the best month across the board.  Closed homes is the most important column to keep track of because this is actual numbers.  Some seller’s can accept a contract but because of many reasons it can go back on the market..

You can see on the contracts accepted column, that contracts have been accepted more than once on a home.  Sometimes because of inspection issues, appraisal issues or loan did not get approved.

Closed is the most important column. These are actual numbers.  At the end of each month I will compare to 2020 and 2019 so you can get a better idea of how this year is going.

It is important to see the breakdown of what happening right now.  I will continue to list this so you can see if things start to change.

Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week were down.  270 this week compared to 325 the week before.  Last week new listings were down so that makes sense.

Totals                 5928         6398                7679

Closed is the most important column to look at.  We started ahead at the beginning of the year with inventory left over from the previous year.  Not all of the contracts accepted will end up closing.  Sometimes they come back on the market after home inspection/attorney review period of after the appraisal comes in.   Prices have increased, and the appraisals don’t always match, so if they can’t come to an agreement the home goes back on the market.

It continues to be a seller’s market.

Contact us

Call us at 630-503-6555 with all your real estate questions.  Your goal is our goal.  We will do everything we can to help you reach your goal.

Thinking about selling this year?  Request a home valuation and let us know a little bit about your home and what you have updated.  We will let you know what it is worth in today’s market and provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms so you can make a good decision.

If you are thinking about buying a home this year you have to call a loan officer and get them all your financial information so they can get you pre approved.  Pre qualify will not do in today’s market.  You will probably be up against other offers when you do find a home so you want to let the seller’s know that you did this extra step.

2021 real estate market update week 24.  New listings of single family homes increased slightly.  315 this week compared to 297 the week before.  Any increase is welcome!  It continues to be a sellers market.

Are you wanting to buy a home this year.  You need patience and perseverance.  There is a shortage of homes for sale so you most likely will be up against other buyers trying to get the same home.  Get a loan officer that will do a pre-approval not just prequalify.  Get your tax returns ready and all financial information together to submit to them.

The closed column is the most important one.  This is actual numbers.  The new and contracts accepted could be counted more than once if a home is relisted as new, or has a contract accepted, and then it does not make it through the home inspection and attorney review period.  It could get relisted again, and then another contract accepted.

Check back with us every Saturday for the real estate market update.  At the end of each month we will take a look back at 2020 and 2019 so you an compare to see how this year is going.

It is a great time sell!  Prices are increasing.  Request a home valuation and give us some information about your home, and what has been recently updated.  We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell.  This will be updated when an offer comes in, and we know all the terms so you can make a good decision.

Are you thinking about buying this year?  You need to talk to a loan officer and submit all your financial information so they can get you pre-approved.  You need to take this extra step and get pre-approved with the market right now.   Homes are selling very fast  with multiple offers.  You need to be ready to go look as soon as a home hits the market, or it will be gone.  The loan officer will give you a letter showing what you qualify for, and what type of loan.  This will go with an offer when you find a home.

Resources:

One of the IDHA programs might help payoff student debt, and another one if you stay there at least 5 years you might not have to pay it back.  It is worth your time to check them out.

Do you need recommendations for loan officers, real estate attorneys or home inspectors?  We can provide a few of each so you can decide who you want to work with.

2021 real estate market update week 15.  New listings of single family homes were down this week.  241 this week compared to 260 the week before.  It is April we should be increasing every week.

Closed listings of single family homes were up this week.  222 this week compared to 192 the week before.  As we head to the end of the month they should increase.  Most buyers want to close at the end of the month so they can bring less money to closing.

Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted on single family homes are up.  359 this week compared to 296 the week before.  We need to really increase inventory of homes to start to satisfy the demand from buyers that are looking.  We continue to see multiple offers.  Prices are increasing because of it.

1 short sales was accepted by a seller this week.  It was in Naperville.  Now it will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept it.

Seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home.  3 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 6 with 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

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

You can see that, at this time, you better have a contract on your home if you want to have a chance on submitting an offer.  Multiple offers is the norm now.

March was a good month.  I don’t know if we will hit close to the closed numbers this month.  Closed is the the main column to keep an eye on.  These are actual numbers.  New and contracts accepted can sometimes be counted more than once if a home is relisted or if a contract fall apart and then gets another one accepted.

Check back with us every Saturday for the update.  At the end of each month we will take a look back at 2020 and 2019 so you can see the comparison.

Thinking about buying a home?  You have to be ready to go with a letter from a lender showing how much home you can afford and what type of loan.  This will go with an offer when we find you a home.  You also have to be ready to go when a listing hits the market.  You will be up against multiple offers.  This is not the market for you to go home and think about it.

Resources:

One of the IDHA  programs might help with student debt and another one if you live there for 5 years it might be forgiven.  It is worth your time to check it out.

If you need recommendations for a loan officer, real estate attorney and home inspector we would be happy to provide you with a few that we have successfully worked with and you can choose who you want to work with.

It is an exciting time to sell and buy a home, but it can be stressful.  We will do everything we can to explain as we go through the process so you know what to expect.
