Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update

Buffalo Grove Real Estate ActivityThe real estate market continues to heat up as we head into the summer. Remember, price is determined by the supply and demand of the product. In this case,the product is housing. Demand or activity is up on a month to month basis. The supply or inventory is down to 5 months for single family homes in Buffalo Grove. The active inventory is still only in the upper 80′s.

Rates are at an all time low. Will the “shadow inventory” tamp down any price increases? Time will tell. But,if you find the house you’re looking for, or are thinking about selling now, it’s a choice of the known vs the unknown.

If you would like information  for where you live, just let me know. I’d be happy to help. Have a joyful and safe summer.

Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Continues To Improve

Buffalo Grove Real Estate MarketAs I mentioned to my clients in a previous email the Buffalo Grove real estate market is picking up steam.  It’s not in all areas , or price ranges but it is moving. Pricing is slowly picking up, especially in 3 bedrooms. The 4 bedroom homes are almost showing a gain.

In Buffalo Grove single family, there are only 87 homes on the market that are not in any contingency. We now have inventory at only 5 months. The marker for a healthy market is 6 months, for buyer and seller. Don’t over analyze the numbers. It’s still a crazy market as a whole . We’re just seeing bright pockets out there.

If you were planning on making a move, now is a good time to be thinking about it.  Interest Rates are scary low. Just food for thought.

If you have any questions about what’s happening where you live, please don’t hesitate to contact me . I’ll be happy to help.
