Buffalo Grove Real Estate Market Update

The Buffalo Grove real estate market showed a real sign of life in April after a very disappointing March. Single Family home buyers had been demonstrating great patience and restraint, holding off for well updated homes or great deals. In April, 71 single family homes went under contract, the highest number since 2008. Condos and Townhomes continue to seemingly sell as soon as they hit the market. Based on my experience with our listings, the pool of buyers is very strong and there are lots of showings. Spring is here, and I anticipate the next couple of months should be very interesting … stay tuned!
