Barrington home sales are down this year. Much as we like to think the market keeps rocking and rolling the reality is different. We reached a peak in November 2017. Since November the year on year volume has dropped every month. Price cuts are common now to achieve a sale. The luxury market always suffers the most. The time to think about selling may not be today. It depends on your circumstances. If you have been on the market a long time, this is why. Have a conversation with your agent about market conditions today for your property! Price and presentation will always help you. The average marketing time for all sales is now 167 days, which compares well throughout the year. Contract to close has an average 48 days, down since last year. Mortgage rates are creeping up. We have 11.4...

There are many choices to be made when choosing a Realtor to help with a sale or purchase of a home, and one of the things to be considered is the importance of a full-time agent vs. a part-time agent.There are many very nice, intelligent, well-meaning, part-time agents out there who are just getting into real estate and not quite ready to give up their “real” jobs yet…but it is best to only consider full-time agents when interviewing Realtors.A part time agent might argue that they have completed the same education as a full-time agent, and they have access to all of the same tools and inventory as a full-time agent. That is true, but that is not where the difference comes in.Part-time agent1. Knowledge of the MarketIt goes without saying that the more time someone can devote to someth...

Well kind of. You see the other day I asked a question on the QA, which by the way is the best thing since sliced bread on AR. At least I think so. If you have not joined in, we're a brilliant bunch and have a laugh but also get answers to all sorts of things.My question was:Does anyone have a good suggestion for luxury listings brochures.The ones I have used before were looking a little tired and the opportunities I have been getting, including a $1.8 Million listing now live, made me think about reviving them.The authorities jumped in with 28 answers, how cool is that! There's such an intelligent bunch of people here and some common threads emerged. One was to ask Ron and Alexandra Seigel the AR Launguage of Luxury people. I did not need to, Alex reached out to me, very cool, again, t...

There's always a story behind every home sale and this one had an ounce or more of luck. When the home first listed at the end of 2017 my buyers were looking. We jumped at the opportunity and the buyers were ready to buy, but it's hard to make fast decisions on such large purchases. While pondering the house went under contract with another buyer.Even in the luxury market a buyer can be beaten to the post. In January the property came back to the market, the existing buyer was ousted. I monitor the activity on the MLS of all Barrington properties on a daily basis. I jumped on the text message machine and let my buyers know. Some clients prefer texts and so we must do what they prefer! Within hours our offer was written up, presented and accepted and today the buyers are new proud owners...

With the first quarter of the year almost done it's a varied real estate market here in Barrington because our price range of homes is wide. While the top end of the price points are still sluggish to move, the bottom end and mid priced homes are moving along nicely. This market report is going to break down by price section to give an idea of what buyers and sellers can expect. We are reporting on residential sales in the 60010 zip code for January and February 2018.General Housing StatsJanuary saw a total of 49 single family homes and condos & townhomes sold. In February that number declined to 27. Why? January often sees a rush of closings for homes that went under contract at the end of the prior year, whereas February often has some sales that started this year and January is alway...

After fighting a good fight and trying to go buyers only, I have given up. I have realized I am as good at doing listings and therefore I will. So the door was opened and I upped my game for the newest listing.Listed today, 2 Beacon Hill Drive, South Barrington, for $1,779,000 , I have created a pretty fancy single property website. But first I had to find a better photographer. After a little research I found Chicago Home Photos. While photographing the house it was clear he was taking fantastic photos. But he explained why their company was better than my previous company, and yes I have to say their photos were worth the 2 day wait for editing from shoot day last Thursday.My camera has been essentially put to bed! No way can I match what these guys did. And even though I did use a pr...
