Market Update Fox Valley September 9 2017

Market update Fox Valley September 9 2017.  First full week of September is off to a great start with New homes listed.  293 this week compared to 248 last week.  We hope this continues now that we are past the opening of the schools.  Inventory is still extremely low in most areas of the Fox Valley.

Closed homes in the Fox Valley were down this week.  176 this week compared to 295 last week.  That is the difference between the beginning of the month and the end of the month.  If you need a mortgage to purchase you will want to close towards the end of the month so you can come into closing with less money.  You need to bring in the interest from the day of closing to the end of the month.  Most people choose to close towards the end of the month to use those funds for moving in and updating things to make the home more personal to their needs.

These lists are for single family homes only.  We can provide you with the information for Attached housing, Multi-family and rentals just let us know what you are looking for.  Take a look at the communities with the most activity this week:

Aurora-New 36 Closed 32

Batavia-New 11 Closed 7

Market Update Fox Valley September 9 2017-Accepted Contracts

Accepted contracts this week were down from last week.  194 this week compared to 256 last week.  Hopefully with the increase in New homes coming on the market will increase this number this next week.

Short sales were the same as last week.  7 accepted short sales by the owners.  Now they will go on to see if the mortgage company will accept them.  This can be so confusing to people.  The price that the home is listed for in most cases the mortgage company does not even know what price they have it up for sale for.  They might or might not accept the price the owners accepted.  These take time.  You need to be patient.  If time is an issue these are not the homes you should be looking at.

Sellers accepted contracts this week that the buyer needs to close on their home before they can purchase.  The buyers have already had their home on the market and have accepted a contract on their home.  7 of them have a 72 hour kick-out clause, 9 with 48 hour and 1 with a 24 hour kick-out.

Home owners also accepted contracts with buyers that need to sell their home.  They might already have it on the market or not.  They do not have a contract on their home yet. 2 of them have a 72 hour kick-out clause, 6 with 48 hour and 1 with a 24 hour kick-out.

Take a look at the communities that home owner accepted the most contracts this week:

Aurora-36   2 of them were short sales

Bolingbrook-14

Naperville-28     2 of them were short sales

Oswego-12

Plainfield-21    2 of them were short sales

St Charles-17

The other short sale was in Montgomery.

Market Update Fox Valley September 2 2017

Market Update Fox Valley September 2 2017.  We hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend!  I am late posting this Market Update I was at my niece’s Wedding yesterday.  New Listings of single family homes were down this week.  248 this week compared to 256 last week.  Inventory of homes for sale continues to be an issue.  It has increased prices.

Closed homes this week were up.  295 this week compared to 220 last week.  This is due to the end of the month which is more desirable if you are getting a mortgage so you can bring less to closing.  The earlier in the month the more you bring in for interest if you are getting a loan.

Fox Valley Market Update August 19 2017

Fox Valley Market Update August 19 2017.  New listings this week were not much different from last week.  295 this week compared to 297 last week.  Most Schools in the area have started and everyone is getting back into the routine.  This does not seem to slow down the homes going on the market.

Closed homes this week were higher.  253 this week compared to 233 last week.  Most likely people trying to close in the last minute right before School starting.  As you can see the number for listed homes and closed homes are similar.  If they are priced right and in good condition they are selling.  Inventory remains low in most areas.

Contracts Accepted this Week Fox Valley Market Update August 19 2017

Contracts accepted this week Fox Valley August 19 2017.  Fox Valley Market Update August 19 2017. Sellers accepted contracts this week were higher than last week.  254 this week compared to 219 last week.  That is a nice increase!  Some very excited buyers and sellers looking forward to getting to closing.

Short sales were lower this week.  3 this week compared to 7 last week.  1 was in Montgomery and the other 2 were in North Aurora.  It is great that these numbers have gone down so much.

Sellers accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their home.  The buyers already have a contract accepted on their home and need to close before purchasing another.  6 of them have a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 10 with 48 hours and 5 with 24 hours.

Sellers also accepted contracts with a buyer that either has not put their home on the market or do not have a contract yet on their home.  4 of them have a kick-out clause of 48 hours.  

Both of these scenarios you will want to speak to your real estate Attorney about before entering into this situation whether you are a buyer or a seller.  It is always good to take the time to talk to your REALTOR and your real estate Attorney in the beginning.   When you list your home or start to look at homes about the different situations that might come up before you either fall in love with a home or have an offer in front of you.  That way you are prepared for the situation and will not lose time and maybe lose out on a home or buyer if the situation comes up.

Sellers that accepted contracts this week Fox Valley August 5 2017

Sellers that accepted contracts this week Fox Valley August 5 2017 were slightly higher than last week.  257 this week compared to 253 last week.  It does not seem to be letting up.  These numbers would be higher if there was more inventory.

Contracts accepted that were selling as a short sale were lower than last week.  3 this week compared to 7 last week.  This continues to be a good trend away from the short sales.

Sellers accepted contracts from buyers this week that are contingent on the close of the buyers home.  The buyers have accepted a contract on their home and are purchasing another but need to close on the home to purchase.  9 this week with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 17 with 48 hours and 3 with 24 hours.  

Contracts were also accepted from sellers that the buyer still needs to sell their home.  Either it is already on the market but no contract yet or still needs to put their home on the market.  6 with a kick-out clause of 72 hours, 8 with 48 hours and 2 with 24 hours.

 If another buyer would come in with an offer the current buyer would have the amount of hours agreed to to waive contingency or back out.  You will definitely need to consult with your real estate attorney and loan officer in this situation and talk about your options.  It would be good to talk to them before entering into this situation in the first place either as a buyer or a seller.

Activity this week Fox Valley July 29 2017.  New listings of homes were down a little this week.  292 homes listed this week compared to 337 last week.  July is usually vacation month so we are hoping in August we will see more homes come on the market.  People are busy getting the last trip in and getting ready for school to start.

Closed homes this week were up.  296 this week compared to 265 last week.  Monday will probably be a big day for closings because it is that last day of the month.  The closer to the end of the month the less buyers need to bring in for interest at closing.  

The chart above shows the minimum and maximum price for listed & closed homes in each community.  You might need to take a look at a different community then you are currently looking in because of price range.  Some communities are always very active and others are slower.  There are a lot of things to consider when you are purchasing.  You always want to consider resale.  Take a look at the communities this week with the most activity:

Contingent listings this week Fox Valley July 29 2017.  Sellers accepting contracts this week were down a little.  253 this week compared to 266 last week.  There were 7 that accepted a contract that were a short sale.  Now the work begins on those to see if the mortgage company will accept the offer as well.  8 sellers accepted a contract that the buyer has a home that is under contract but needs it to close so they have a kick-out clause of 72 hours.  12 with a 48 hour kick-out and 3 with a 24 hour kick-out clause.  5 sellers accepted contracts from buyers that either have not put their home on the market yet or it has not sold so it is contingent on the sale and close of their home with a 72 hour kick- out clause.  5 with 48 hour and 1 with a 24 hour kick-out clause.

Homes are selling quickly if they are in good condition and priced right.  Sellers are getting more confident with accepting contingent offers.  This is newer.  Even just a year ago you were not seeing contingent on a close or sale of a buyers home very much.  Prices have gone up and homeowners are deciding it is a good time for them to sell and find a bigger home or downsizing.

Homes that received contracts this week

317 homes received contracts this week compared to 311 last week.  10 of them were short sales compared to 4 last week.  44 contracts were contingent on a close of their current home.  Only 3 were contingent on the sale and close of their current home.  Although it is easier when you don’t have to worry about a close of their current home it is encouraging that homeowners are feeling more confident in the market to make a move.  Homeowners are starting to see that prices have come up so that they have equity in their home to make a move.

Homes that received contract this week

I have added homes that received a contract this week because I think it is telling us changes in the market.    

A/I=Contingent on attorney approval and/or home inspection.

CTGO=Contingent on some other condition(for example, trailing spuse approval).  

FIN=Contingent on financing approval.  

HS(24,48,72)= Contingent on sale of another property, the number that follows is the number of hours in kick-out period.

 HC(24,38,72)=Contingent on closing of another property, the number that follows is the number of hours in kick-out period.  SS=Contingent on Short Sale.  

These definitions are from MRED.    We are starting to see more Home Sale, Home Close and less Short Sale contingencies.  The market is changing to people that are selling their current home to either buy in a different location or a different size of home.  We have become used to contingent on financing.  If you are a buyer or seller take a look at this article by Jean Folger and investopedia Home Sale Contingencies: What Buyers And Sellers Need to Know.  She does a good job of explaining the differences.  This is also something you will want to discuss with your attorney.

Buyers and Sellers

If you are thinking about buying a home this year you need to first contact a loan officer and get pre-approved to find out what you qualify for and if you need to work on your credit score so you can get the best interest rate.  A loan officer can help you to choose the right things to do to bring up your score.  If you don’t have a loan officer we can make some recommendations for you.  Also take a look at Owning a home:  Tools and resources for homebuyers from CFPB.

If you are thinking about selling your home you can fill out this form to request a home valuation.  We can let you know about the expenses of selling your home and what to expect in the current market.  You will want to know the price in current condition or what you need to do to improve the price of your home and it’s chances of selling.
