The statewide median price for Illinois homes was up for the first time since 2007.  The median price rose .02 percent, the first time it's been up since September 2007. Now, it may not seem like much, but it's better than another downtick. During the same time, statewide total home sales (which include single-family and condominiums) in January 2010 were up 14 percent to a total of 5,483 homes sold.  This is compared to 4,809 the year before. If you would like to know what your home is worth, contact me at the number below.  If you are considering selling your home, take advantage of this good news.  Enthusiasm breeds enthusiasm.  People buy on good news!

If your home is not currently listed and you hope to get your home sold this Spring, NOW is the time to put your home on the market.  Traditionally in our area homesellers have waited until AFTER the Superbowl to list for the Spring market.  But this year is different. Why? 1. Homebuyers have a great incentive to LOOK EARLY this year. Perhaps you've heard of the $8,000 tax credit for 1st time homebuyers.  This credit expires at midnight on April 30, 2010.  For any 1st time homebuyer who has NOT Contracted to buy a home by this date, THEIR TIME IS UP! 2. Homesellers have a great incentive to LIST EARLY this year. Perhaps you've heard of the $6,500 tax credit incentive for long-time Homeowners.  This credit also expires at midnight on April 30, 2010.  This means that for any home seller w...

I listed a great Potomac model in the incredible Del Webb Sun City Huntley on Monday of this week.  Last night we came to terms on a very reasonable offer and the deal was done!  We priced the home right from day one, I set very reasonable expectations with my sellers and we got the house SOLD in FOUR (4) days!If you think the market is bad, you need to adjust your focus!  The buyers are out there!  Is your listing overpriced and under marketed?  Is the home in "showing condition?" Did you manage the expecations of your sellers?  People, we ARE the market!  As long as professional REALTORS sit around and complain about the economy and listen to the national media, guess where we are headed?  If you control your market, you control your future!  I am having a GREAT '08!  This WILL be a s...
