St. Charles and Surrounding Areas Show 16% Increase in Home Sales

Industry Observer with Swanepoel T3 Group

The number of homes under contract in St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Wayne and Elburn has increased an amazing 53% since August of 2011. The number of homes sold has increased 16% in August of this year compared to August of last year.

The total inventory of homes for sale has dropped over 50% to 6.2 months, which means that at the current rate of sales it would take 6.2 months to sell all the existing listings. A housing market is considered to be in balance when the inventory is at 6 months. Inventory of greater than 6 months favors buyers, while lower levels of inventory create more of a sellers’ market.

Some areas may see an increase in prices because the available inventory of good choices is shrinking. Newer homes at lower price points  – under $350,000 here in the Fox Valley — have a much quicker market time than older and more expensive homes.

It’s clear that the housing market in the Fox Valley is continuing steady improvement. If you’d like more information on homes sold and homes under contract in your community please give me a call at 630.945.7935 or Contact Me.

Leslie:  This is just fabulous news... for you, your market area, and for everyone.  I think we are over the hump, so to speak.  As the market continues to grow... other aspects of the economy will surely follow.
