Why Now is a Smart Time to Buy!

While their advice is solid, it's not revolutionary, but some potential customers might find it reassuring.Remember this is a place to live not a stock market investment, they say.

Buyers shouldn't count on stretching further because lenders won't approve their loans.

Selling a Home?  Avoid these Common Home Buyer Turnoffs Are you selling your home? Did you know that even though buyers are looking for something different, the majority of them will turn around and walk back out the door if they notice one or more of these ‘Top 10 Problems'. 1.      Odors House odors are number one on the home selling uh-oh list.  And narrowing it down, odors from cigarette smoke and pets take top billing, with mildew not far behind.  If you smoke indoors - the house smells like cigarettes.  If you have pets, the house might smell bad - even if you don't notice it.  Ask someone who doesn't live there to take a sniff, and don't get angry when they tell you the truth.  Eradicate the odors so that you can present potential buyers with a clean, fresh atmosphere - not a hou...

TODAY'S MARKET OUTLOOK! Northwest Chicago Suburbs, Schaumburg IL Areas EVERY REAL ESTATE MARKET IS LOCAL.  ASK A SEASONED REALTOR, LIKE LYN SIMS, WHAT'S GOING ON LOCALLY! This time may be your "best opportunity" market in years!  Mortgage interest rates are low and prices in Northwest Illinois are still holding fairly well, generally area prices are flat.  The median price home sale in Illinois is actually UP at $198,768*.  The Chicago Median Price for a home is $264,271* which is also UP.  NOT EVERYWHERE IN EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD ARE PRICES FALLING.  That's why I'm saying the real estate market is local - it even makes a difference from subdivsion to subdivision in every single town!  But, over time and the long haul, no investment comes close to real estate so now is a great time to buy, ...
