Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by COVID-19 and I hope you are staying safe and healthy. With our new reality, I know many people are curious about what is going on in the Real Estate market and I wanted to provide my monthly update. The Buffalo Grove real estate market activity had some predictable outcomes in April with significant declines in showings, new listings, homes for sale, homes under contract, and closings. I do believe the very good news is that there was still some solid activity for the month, despite the shelter in place order and it is quite evident that this is not a housing crisis like we experienced in 2008 through 2012. Based on the demand we are seeing from Buyers, it is my expectation that 2020 will be a good Real Estate year, just delayed more to the Summer and Fall. The next couple of months will sure be interesting to see how we come out of this situation. Stay safe everyone!

Single Family Homes:

Average Market Time

The average time a single family home remains on the market in Buffalo Grove was 108 days in April 2020, which was down from 115 days in April 2019.

Months Supply

As of May 1, 2020, there is 3.0 months supply of single family homes for sale in Buffalo Grove compared to 4.8 last year. Anything under 5 months is considered a seller’s market. This is a key measure demonstrating that we aren’t experiencing a crisis like 2008 and due to a relative lack of inventory, prices should be stable.

Homes For Sale

At the end of April 2020, there are 98 single family homes for sale in Buffalo Grove, compare that to the 151 available at this time last year and you’ll see that inventory has declined, which was predictable. Based on recent trends, I anticipate May and June will be busy listing periods this year.

New Listings

32 single family homes were listed for sale in April of 2020, compared to 103 new listings last year. March, April, and May are typically the biggest months for new listings!

Homes Under Contract

21 single family homes went under contract in Buffalo Grove in April 2020, a decrease from 44 in April 2019. I think it is easy to dwell on the decline from last year, but I am pleasantly surprised by the amount of activity despite the shelter in place order.

Closings

30 Single family homes closed in April 2020, decrease from 44 in April 2019. For the first four of 2020, 102 homes have closed this year versus 101 in 2019.
