We must be getting near the end of the year now that the first big snow of the year has hit. I just wanted to give you a quick market update to let you know what’s going on in real estate around this time of year.

Many people think that the market is pretty dormant during this time of year, but we actually have seen 152 properties go under contract in the Chicagoland area in the past seven days. At the same time, a little over 2,500 homes have come off the market and only 1,472 new homes have come on the market.

With these numbers, you can see why this time of year is actually a great opportunity to sell your home. There is a decrease in inventory, which can help you find a buyer. Once we see that first snowfall, and with the holidays around the corner, many people decide to take their homes off the market. This means that it’s a great time for you to prepare to get your home on the market.
