If you don't live locally but are considering Barrington as a destination to move to you can view all the homes for sale here. As a community Barrington Illinois has quite the variety of home choices and we hope this article helps you appreciate why the Village of Barrington might be the right place for you to decide to call it home. History of Barrington HomesBack in the mid 1800's when Barrington was first starting to develop into a village the homes were typically log style. It was known as Barrington Station. The attraction of a train station at the center attracted people to the area and it was a great place to move to with stores opening. People that became wealthy during the 1920's gravitated to Barrington Station. Growth slowed down during hard times but resumed in the 1950's an...

Relocation buyers have a deadline. It may be immediate or it might be some way out. Relocation buyers may visit once, twice or several times before they actually buy a property. Many relocating buyers these days are not corporate driven. Corporate relocations have declined, at least as far as relocation assistance whether monetary or physically is concerned. I have always focused my relocation business on those with no corporate assistance provided, or no need for corporate assistance. That still amounts to a lot of relocating families who need the best in relocation help. I would estimate that it's a lot less than 50% of relocation buyers that receive corporate help. Relocation assistance is expensive! Many companies have stopped offering buy-outs or monetary help.Relocation is happeni...

Vacant Land - Always the last part of a fallen real estate market to dust off the rubble and come back to the market! There's no shortage of it but land sales are beginning to pick up steam again. When the market was buoyant we used to have about 100 available lots for sale in Barrington 60010 area at a time. Currently we have 173 available vacant lots with sizes from 0.05 acres in town to 60 acres in Barrington Hills. There are a further 10 more lots under contract. Vacant land sales have been progressing over the last few years. I'll go back as far as 2011 because that was the last year before we saw the inklings of a revived economy and real estate market. 2013 was the year we saw a much stronger market. Our chart below shows sales over the last 5 years, the last 3 of which show a ma...

There's nothing worse than making a decision to buy a property and having it disappear in a poof of smoke right in front of your eyes!   But did you know that offers can be made after a property goes under contract? Did you know that if you make an offer to a seller under contract, that your offer must be legally presented to the seller? Did you know this is true right up to the second of closing? No Deal Is Complete Until ClosingI met with my clients in January, they were considering building their dream home in South Barrington. We talked through the entire process for about an hour and half. I introduced them to attorneys, builders and answered many questions, interjecting some things they had never even thought of. The buyers had identified a lot they were very interested in. I did ...

Barrington Drone Photographer  - The Right and Legal Way!I own a drone. It's the DJI Phantom 3 Pro. It has a stabilized Go-Pro 12 megapixel HD camera mounted on the underneath and I use a mini Ipad to see where I fly. Truth be told I have not yet flown it yet, my son has. The control is like a game controller so for him, being a gamer it was as easy as pie. We had some fun with it last year with one thing in mind. Add it to my real estate tools to provide great aerial photos of homes and land.The FAA were aware people were using these lightweight drones in business and at that time a pilots license was really needed to fly one for business purposes. That requirement was a little extreme; given they are remotely controlled and small and you cannot sit in them! I had a professional photog...

No matter the type of distressed financial past you experienced, mortgages are available again to you. Whether you want to refinance a loan, perhaps to get out of an ARM, combine two loans into one fixed payment, get your rate down; or if it's time to downsize, right-size or even find a larger home there are some simple rules about when you can qualify for a new mortgage based on the date of your distressed event.Unlike credit reports that hold this information for up to 10 years, you don't have to wait that long for it to drop off the report before you can get a new mortgage. Your credit score will factor into your qualification and your interest rate.It should also be noted that a 20% down payment is not necessary, that jumbo mortgages are no different to conforming in relation to qua...
