BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD"  The muffled drum's sad roll has beatThe soldier's last tattoo;No more on life's parade shall meetThat brave and fallen few.On Fame's eternal camping-groundTheir silent tents are spread,And Glory guards, with solemn round,The bivouac of the dead.No rumor of the foe's advanceNow swells upon the wind;Nor troubled thought at midnight hauntsOf loved ones left behind;No vision of the morrow's strifeThe warrior's dream alarms;No braying horn nor screaming fifeAt dawn shall call to arms.Their shriveled swords are red with rust,Their plumed heads are bowed,Their haughty banner, trailed in dust,Is now their martial shroud.And plenteous funeral tears have washedThe red stains from each brow,And the proud forms, by battle gashedAre free from anguish now.The neighing troop, the...

Below are the closed transactions for 2005 and 11 months of 2006 for Arlington Heights, IL per the mls. As you can see there has been a 10% drop in closings for the current year. This number is only part of the truth in my opinion. Less homeowners are selling by owner which has increased the number of recorded sales in the mls for 2006. This means the numbers actually look better then they really are.Also 2006 started off as a great year with 27 more units closed by the end of March then in 2005, that's a 34% increase. After that is when things slowed down and in a big way. The next 8 month of 2006 have 20% less closing than in 2005. Only 406 from April - Nov 2006 vs. 485 in 2005 during the same period. Here are the numbers before we go any further:2005 closed single family unitsJan  '0...

Million dollar homes in Arlington Heights is becoming common place. With 25 current listing over 1 million dollars and as high as $2.5 million you have a large selection of new construction high end homes. These homes are up to 6,000 sq feet and have up to 4 car garages. But with only 5 homes selling in this price range in the last 6 months the question becomes why are so many being built?The highest price closed sale in Arlington Heights in the last 6 months is only $1,225,000. This is less than half the price of the current highest priced listing and the marketing time on this home was 273 days.Builders have taken the "build it and they will come" approach, to bad for them the buyers don't agree. Many of these high end listings have been reducing prices to try and get buyers in the do...

I posted about Arlington Heights IL in the last post so I figured you should see some hard numbers. I am going to use only single family homes for this update.Homes listed - 496Under Contract - 89Closed in the last 90 days - 85If it takes 90 days for 85 homes to sell then we have 524 days of inventory on the market today. That means if nothing new is added and home sales stayed the same as the last 90 days that it would take well over a year to sell every home that is currently listed. The one bright spot is that there are 89 homes under contract and that might help increase the sales pace a little. This helps show that YES the market is MUCH slower and you need to work with an agent or team of agents that can offer a great marketing plan that includes a web site that ranks high in Goog...

Selling your home in todays market will require more advertising and the use of a professional REALTOR(R). Gone are the days of sticking a sign in teh ground and getting multiple offers. No longer will owners be able to go with the cheapest agent and hope that the mls will sell the home. The market has changed and with this change homes are sitting on the market longer. There are many homes on the market today that have been there for over 6 months, this would never have happened at any point over the last few years.We have moved into a more normal real estate market. That means homes will take over 30 days to sell and many times we will be talking about months not days on market. Homes will need to be advertised even more and the cost of selling a home will increase. The longer a home ...
