October 2017 Market Trends. Sometimes the numbers can be easily interpreted, 2017 is almost an exact mirror image of 2016. The number of homes sold in St. Charles, Geneva, and Batavia are all up slightly across the board. I am still seeing price growth and strong demand for homes under $400,000, and still seeing stagnate to declining values for homes over $500,000, most of this is due to high taxes and job growth issues in IL. The exceptions, In-Town Geneva (On Fire), ranches, 1st floor master bedrooms, and updated homes on larger private lots. Townhomes continue to sell well with some price growth depending on the property and location. Please contact us if you or someone you know is thinking of moving. Thanks for all the continued support!!!!
