Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update
Buffalo Grove real estate sales rebounded nicely in June 2017, as inventory remains very tight with new listings are beginning to meet potential buyer demand. Updated homes and/or well priced listings are selling very quickly. Homes that are not updated are sitting on the market for 4 to 6 months. With the new “HGTV expectations,” it appears that buyers are missing some nice opportunities, if they could look past a current owner’s tastes.
Single Family Homes:
Average Market Time
The average time a single family home remains on the market in Buffalo Grove was an historically low 34 days in June 2017, which was down from 71 days in June 2016. This is a really low average market time, reflective of attractive new listings selling quickly.
As of July 1, 2017, there is 3.5 months supply of single family homes for sale in Buffalo Grove compared to 3.9 last year. Anything under 5 months is considered a seller’s market. It continues to be a good time to consider selling.
Homes For Sale
At the end of June 2017, there are 129 single family homes for sale in Buffalo Grove, compare that to the 141 available at this time last year and you’ll see that inventory remains very low. There aren’t enough homes to supply the current buyer demand, which provides for a very competitive environment.

57 Single family homes closed in June 2017, up from 44 in June 2016. Through the first half of the year, 222 homes have closed this year versus 210 in 2016. While inventory remains low, the recent new listings have spurred a positive trend for 2017.
