St Charles Housing Market Stable

School has begun and summer is coming to an end.  This typically brings a slowdown to the local real estate market.  St Charles, however, still has home buyers and the seller inventory to meet demand.

Housing Market

We all know the terms "sellers market" and "buyers market".  St Charles, as a whole, is experiencing neither right now.  We're in a stable market.

Depending on where in St Charles you live, though, selling could be a little easier.

The city as a whole has 5.62 months of housing inventory.  Anything between 5-6 months is "normal".  There are 658 homes (both attached and detached) on the market with 468 homes closed in the last 4 months.  Buyers are out there.

Looking at the most active neighborhoods throughout St Charles paints a more accurate picture.  There are 23 subdivisions with measurable home sales in the last 4 months.  16 of those are in a sellers market, 2 are stable and 5 are in a buyers market.  Here are the results...

St Charles Housing Inventory

A sellers market is defined as an area with less than 5 months of inventory.  Sellers can expect a quicker sale for a higher price.  Some St Charles neighborhoods that are in a sellers market include CambridgeCambridge EastRenaux ManorPheasant Run TrailsCranston MeadowsThe Windings of Ferson CreekHarvest HillsTraditions at Harvest HillsCharlemagne, and Crane Road Estates.

5-6 months of inventory is a stable market.  Prices and market time will follow more traditional averages.  Hunt Club and Three Lakes are in a stable market.

Anywhere with over 6 months of inventory brings a buyers market.  Home prices tend to dip and the process takes longer.  Some of the neighborhoods in a buyers market right now include Fox MillRoyal Fox, and Prairie Lakes.
