As you can see above, the most common loan type seller’s are looking for right now is a Conventional loan. It helps to get familiar with the different types of loans.

Take the extra step and get all your financial information to a loan officer and have them put you through underwriting so you know how much you are approved for before looking at homes.  It will put you in a better position if you are up against other offers.  I think they should of been doing this all along.  It is hard to wait until a week before closing to find out you are approved.  Sometimes there is last minute things that come up and so late in the game are hard to resolve so your closing date gets moved.

Request a home valuation if you are thinking about selling.  Tell us a little bit about your home and what has been recently updated.  We will let you know an estimate of what it might sell for and show you an estimate of expenses to sell.

Market update Fox Valley 1-4-2020.  Happy New Year to all of you!  I hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start.  The last couple of weeks we have had a holiday in the middle of the week so numbers have been off.  3 days of last year are on this weeks numbers.  Next week will be the first full week of the year.

New listings of single family homes this week more than doubled.  138 this week compared to 58 the week before.  Not only were buyers busy getting ready for Christmas the REALTORS®  were busy too getting ready for the holiday the week before.  That is the difference in the 2 holiday weeks.

Closed listings of single family homes this week were not too far.  This week 118 listings closed compared to 106 the week before.  These numbers will increase as we head to the end of the month and no more holidays to interfere with banks and title companies closed.

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

Aurora-New 15 $128,500-$430,000

            Closed-13 $160,000-$290,000

Contracts accepted this week

Market Update Fox Valley 1-4-2020-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week on single family homes was not too far off of the week before.  107 this week compared to 98 the week before.  I am looking forward to getting back to normal next week.  No more holidays for awhile.   

Are you wondering why I keep track of when contracts are accepted?  I like to keep track of all kinds of activity.  This lets me know that there are buyers out there ready to submit offers instead of just looking.  Sometimes they do not close but they are ready to go.  When it gets really active buyers do not have much time to think about what they want to do.  They have to make a decision faster.  Right now inventory is very low so even though numbers are down you still need to make a decision or move on and wait for more homes to come on the market.

Communities that sellers accepted the most contracts this week:

Aurora-15                          Naperville-19

Plainfield-14

1 short sale was accepted this week in Yorkville. Now it will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept it 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 and 1 with 48 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 72 hours and 5 with 48 hours.  Sellers still feel confident they will sell and close.

2020 by the month

Month                  New         Closed        Contracts accepted

January                138            118                   107

We are only 4 days into the new year.  3 of these days are from December of 2019.  Last year is the first year I kept track of the months for the year so it will interesting to compare this year to last as we go along. 

Activity happens year round.  A lot of it has to do with the amount of inventory of homes on the market.  Some months are definitely busier than others. 

Now is a great time to have your home on the market so you don’t have so much competition as you do in the Spring market.  Location, price and condition are the 3 factors that matter to get a home sold.  If it is priced right for the location and condition it will sell.

Contracts accepted this week

12 14 19 Market Update Fox Valley-Contracts accepted this week

Contracts accepted this week on single family homes was way up this week.  155 this week compared to 127 the week before.  I think it is important to keep track of when contracts are getting accepted.  It gives you an idea of how the market is doing.  Buyers are still out there trying to find a home and ready to act when they find it.  Price, location and condition is still when all of these are in line a home will sell.

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

Aurora-27                   Bolingbrook-17

Napervillle-26             Plainfield-19

9 short sales were accepted by sellers this week.  2 in Plainfield and 1 each in Aurora, Montgomery, Naperville, Oswego, St Charles/Campton Hills, West Chicago and Yorkville.  Now they will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept.

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

Contingent contracts were also accepted by sellers that the buyer still needs to sell and close on their current home.  2 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 1 with 48 hours and also 1 with 24 hours.

New listings sometimes get canceled and relisted so the days on market are lower.  Not all contracts that get accepted close.  Sometimes issues come up that can’t get resolved the way buyers and sellers can agree too.  That does not necessarily mean there is a big problem with the home.   This is where you need a good REALTOR®  and real estate attorney to negotiate the issues that come up.

You can see that activity happens throughout the year.  Some months are busier than others.  If you are thinking about selling you can decide if you want sell when there is the most listings available or when there is not as much competition.

Some of those new listings are homes that have been relisted.  Not all listings that receive contracts close.  Some might have an inspection issue that can’t be negotiated to resolve or something might come up on the new title search that can’t be easily resolved.  You need a good REALTOR® and real estate attorney that can help get through some of these issues.
