Buffalo Grove Real Estate Update

Buffalo Grove real estate sales remain healthy through the first five 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. I do find it fascinating when I see nice homes that are available that aren’t being snatched up by potential Buyers. There are some very nice homes that have been available for the past couple of months that are not yet under contract.
