Long Grove Realtor , Judy Greenberg provides tips for moving Senior Citizens including guide for Estate Sales, and other information to make the move a little smoother.    In my tenure as a local realtor I’ve learned so much than I ever thought possible. One thing that I’ve recently been exposed to is the process of moving senior citizens. These wonderful folks have often lived in the same home for 40 plus years and are now completely at a loss as to how to downsize or as I like to say “right size”. There are so many things to do, to worry about and to manage and let’s face it, they’re usually not spring chickens with bounds of energy any longer. First there lies the daunting task of deciding where to move: an apartment, a condo, an assisted living community, or a retirement village. Th...

Is the market value of your Long Grove house upside-down? Are you facing financial difficulties? Does it look like you could lose your home to foreclosure? You’re not alone. Crain’s Chicago Business recently reported that it takes banks nearly 500 days to process an Illinois foreclosure. This may give you nearly a year-and-a-half to sell your house as a Short Sale. But don’t get too complacent. A Short Sale can take 6 months or longer to process through your bank. Meanwhile, your bank could foreclose on your home in less than a year. The long and the short Maybe you haven’t heard about Short Sales. Or maybe you have but also heard that they don’t work. Untrue. Short Sales are different from regular sales and must be handled in a different way. But when handled properly, they can close o...

If you think you don’t have to worry about selling your Long Grove home and moving on when the need arises, think again. Every day means your house is losing value. That’s right. Every single day. Face value Overall, economic and market forces continue to plague the real estate marketplace, and will for some time to come. One of those market forces has to do foreclosures and short sales. Short end of the stick Over the past year, 25% of all single-family detached homes sold in Long Grove were ‘distressed’ homes ... either foreclosures or short sales. Digest this for a moment. 1 out of 4 homes sold in Long Grove during the last 12 months was a ‘distressed’ home. A ‘distressed’ home is one in which the homeowners experienced some kind of financial crisis. Either they lost their home to th...
