Lake in the Hills, IL, a market I serve and know VERY well, is off to a FAST start with enormous Buyer activity due to low inventory.  Today, last day of April, 2020, I had 3 Buyers lined up back to back to see a home that already had multiple offers with Highest & Best called for by 5:00 on Saturday.  This home was getting SO MUCH ACTIVITY that the Seller intentionally STOPPED all future showings (which I believe is a mistake, correction, BIG MISTAKE as it could limit the end result of a higher offer)! Last year around the same time, Lake in the Hills, IL had similar activity.  The photo attached to this post is from my client who had lost out on 7 Homes but finally was the Highest & Best on the 8th home we bid on.  They were relieved and extremely happy that they finally got into thei...

  Thinking of Selling Your House? This is a Perfect Time! It is common knowledge that a great number of homes sell during the spring buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that is a good strategy this year.The other listings that come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market during this season in comparison to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months during which most people listed their homes for sale in 2018. This graphic shows the results: The three months in the second quarter of the year (represented in red) are consistently the most popular months for...

 In many markets across the country, the number of buyers searching for their dream homes outnumbers the number of homes for sale. This has led to a competitive marketplace where buyers often need to stand out. One way to show that you are serious about buying your dream home is to get pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage before starting your search.Even if you are not in an incredibly competitive market, understanding your budget will give you the confidence of knowing whether or not your dream home is within your reach.Freddie Mac lays out the advantages of pre-approval in the ‘My Home’ section of their website:“It’s highly recommended that you work with your lender to get pre-approved before you begin house hunting. Pre-approval will tell you how much home you can afford and ...
