Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update April 2016

The Buffalo Grove real estate market remains healthy through the first four months of 2016, but inventory remains extremely tight with new listings down from last year. Positive indicators are that market times remain favorable and homes under contract and closings are above last year’s pace.
