Over the past couple days, I've been working on revamping one of my local websites - Batavia Real Estate. The main reason is that I'm thinking of porting over to the Wordpress platform so I can more easily manage the creation of new pages without having to mess with the coding. Up until now, all of my webpages with the exception of my blogs have been designed and coded by hand in HTML. I also feel like moving to a PHP-based platform is going to give me a lot more flexibility. For example, with PHP I can display recent blog posts in-line from my front page and generate listing detail pages on the fly from a database. There are a couple big drawbacks, so I'm testing it on one of my local websites rather than my main site at www.illinoislandandhomes.com. First, I don't know what the affect...

This month's Batavia Market Update for Single Family Homes has great news for Batavia IL residents and home buyers: the Spring market appears to be off to a great start! The showing activity appears to have picked up as the weather improves -- our long, cold winter appears to be giving way to milder and sunnier days. While the average sold price of $232,344 is below that of 2010, there are about 15% fewer homes on the market compared to this time last year. List prices appear to have stabilized in all but the very top price brackets. Home buyers are looking for good values in all price brackets. Home sellers need to avoid making common mistakes, price comeptitively and present their homes in tip top condition. If you would like a detailed report for your neighborhood or subdivision in B...

Most real estate agents have gotten the call "We want to make a real estate investment. We want to be rich. Show me some great deals". I used to react quickly, perhaps too quickly. But this year I've been too busy to spin my wheels as a taxi driver and short-order market analyst for people who aren't committed to buying property. A few of my existing clients have been pestering me for months to help them make real estate investments, including Bill and Sue who I sold a wonderful house in Batavia IL last year. They also have friends who want to become real estate investors and take advantage of the great deals in St Charles IL, Geneva IL and Batavia IL. I made them do homework first. These are people I care about and I want them to use their money wisely. I told them that before I'd do a...

In Batavia IL over the past few weeks, the number of new contracts has dropped with the temperatures while the inventory has slightly increased since November. A number of homes were newly listed, some of them with beautiful holiday decorations that show wonderfully on bright winter days. Many Spring home buyers start their search during the holiday season, so if you're planning on selling next year, make your outside decorations especially attractive and take some photos.

Batavia IL is a charming community located about 40 miles west of downtown Chicago. This town of 27,000 residents has been named by Money Magazine as one of the top 100 small towns in America. Batavia has weathered the housing downtown relatively well. While prices are lower than a few years ago, sellers have become more realistic and buyers have been happy to find great homes in Tanglewood Hills, Harvell Farms and the historic downtown area.

Whether I'm standing in line at the grocery store or meeting a new client in Batavia, IL, people always ask "what's happening in the housing market?". The national news has certainly been discouraging. But here in the western suburbs of Chicago we're doing better than most areas. The Chicago Tribune recently published interesting local data: "Among the Chicago-area counties, the only one to eke out a positive sales performance was Kane County, where July sales rose 1.3 percent from a year ago". (drops in the other 5 counties ranged from 18.6% to 35.8%...ouch). Harvell Farms and Mill Creek, Batavia: Market Update September 05, 2010 11 Closed Sales ranging in price from $298,000 to $520,500 since January 1, 2010 2 Under Contract ranging in price from $324,900 to $364,900. 7 Active Listin...
