Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update
The Buffalo Grove real estate market had another solid month in July after 3 very good months. Single Family home buyers had been demonstrating great patience and restraint, holding off for well updated homes or great deals. In July, another 99 new single family homes were listed, following 119 and 114 in May and June respectively. Condos and Townhomes continue to seemingly sell as soon as they hit the market, with an extremely low average market time of 38 days! Based on my experience with our listings, the pool of buyers is very strong and there are lots of showings. We are at the end of the Summer market, and I anticipate the next couple of months should be very interesting … stay tuned!
