Yesterday, the Fox Valley was hit by the second large snowstorm of the year – dropping 4-5 inches on some parts of the area. Most residents spent last night and this morning digging out or bundled up at home with their heating system installation turned up all the way to stay warm during this freezing weather, if you need any repairs done to your heating system then you better get it now before it gets too cold. Season lows have also been a fixture in the area for perhaps the past week – temps dropping into the negative for quite a few of the previous nights. Despite the cool-off, real estate is starting to get red hot. We are seeing a large influx of homes going on the market the past couple weeks and buyers are starting to get out, despite the weather. The figures from January are in and we started to see an increase in both figures towards the end of the month. This actually signals an early start to the spring commercial real estate season – a large increase wasn’t expected until February at least.
