August 17, 2010 by Sharron · Leave a Comment  The biggest question for Home Sellers in Long Grove Illinois is: when are home prices going up?  There are currently 153 homes for sale in Long Grove, 4 Long Grove Homes sold in July and 9 more are currently under contract and awaiting closing.  Based on the current supply and demand, basic math points to it taking roughly 38 months to sell your Long Grove home in today's market.  While most people want to believe that real estate is recovering, the reality is that it has a long way to go.  Real estate is closely tied to employment, and employment figures are still not looking good.  Last night on the evening news it was reported that we lost  484,000 jobs this past month and Chicago lead the country with an increase of 30 percent in forecl...

Long Grove is offering a farmer's market this summer... hope to see you there! Finally, my prayers have been answered. Long Grove is sponsoring a Farmers Market.  The Farmers Market is held every Sunday from 8 am to 1 pm across from the Village Tavern on Towner Green.I hope they are going to sell fresh corn since my family loves it, expecially grilled. For everyone like me who has been traveling to Wilmette and Evanston every weekend for fresh fruits and vegetables, the news that Long Grove is offering a farmer's market is the next best thing to sliced bread (or sliced tomatoes).  Where else can one delight in strawberries so small and deliciously sweet that you have to stop yourself from eating the whole pint before you get home.  Farmer's markets are famous for corn that is so tender ...

It is time for my monthly update for the Long Grove Area from the Northwest Realtor Association regarding the real estate market in Long Grove. The Realtor board combines the home sales of Hawthorn Woods, Long Grove and Kildeer as these towns share the same Zip Code and are of similar type of homes. The good news is that sales are up in the Long Grove area through May of 2009. In 2009 there were 101 properties sold through May, and in 2010 we currently have 149 sold homes in and around Long Grove. This is an increase of 47.5% from last year. The other side is that the prices have decreased. The averages sales price has gone down 8.6% from $421,931 to $385,447. This would be due to the amount of short sales and foreclosures in our area.

Over the past 5 months, Long Grove Home Sales have been hit hard due to the lack of buyers looking to purchase homes in the higher end home market. In order for the move up Home buyer for Long Grove Homes to be able to purchase, they typically have to sell a home as well. The good news is that with the low interest rates and the uncertainty of how long rates will stay low, we do anticipate that 1st time home buyers will come back into the market regardless of a tax credit. The rental market is higher in price for High End Long Grove Homes and that will also make buying a home attractive. So how does this affect the Long Grove Sellers? If you are thinking of selling your home then make sure your house will finish in the top 5 homes in the beauty contest. The home that is updated, freshly...

Long Grove Real Estate is seeing some relief. In the last 3 months 20 Long Grove Homes have closed with 2 pending right now. Currently there are 129 Active Long Grove properties and 92 of them are listed at over $700,000. Long Grove draws in high end buyers, and although they are out there, it is more noticeable that people are being a bit more cautious about the home they buy and the price they pay. Don’t get me wrong, Long Grove Homes are selling, but people know that they can shop around and get all of the bells and whistles, especially for the higher price tags. It’s all good news for Long Grove Sellers and Buyers. We are seeing the market move a little bit. Of course with summer around the corner the inventory will increase, because now is the time to put your Long Grove Home on th...
