Real Estate Market Update in Streamwood - February 2018 What are Prices Doing?  Average sales price ($217,000) an increase of 15% from February 2017.  Remember that every subdivision is responding differently if and 'when' a home in the area goes on the market. Sellers are now pretty happy with prices or have decided that now is a good time to move.  Are you thinking of moving? With our overall amount of inventory we are in a sellers market. Inventory has decreased from 2017 overall by 30%. With this overall low (supply & demand) inventory price increases have to be expected. Homes going under contract have decreased over 2017 by 18% just because there isn't a good enough supply or the home and buyer are not a good match .  Market time for homes going under contract is 70 days. This is ...

Real Estate Market Update in Streamwood - January 2018 So let me answer your real estate market questions -- What are Prices Doing?  Average sales price ($247,470) has actually increased 30% from January 2017.  Remember that every subdivision is responding differently if and 'when' a home in the area goes on the market. Sellers are now pretty happy with prices or have decided that now is a good time to move. How about you? With our overall amount of inventory we are in a sellers market. Inventory has increased from 2017 overall. With this overall low inventory (supply & demand) price increases have to be expected.   I would definitely say that the market has had a stall-out with homes taking longer to sell.  The fastest market is never during the winter months. Homes going under contrac...
