This home was on the market for 8 months.  Staged and under contract in 3 weeks!                     Beautiful home with a spacious kitchen.  That sounds like a good thing, right?  However, because the kitchen was so large (not all shown in photo) it felt cold and sterile when it was vacant.  Staging allowed the potential buyers to visualize themselves working and living in the space.

Belvidere IL home on the market for four months.  Staged and under contract in two weeks!  (Received two offers the first week after being staged)                 The home is in great condition, upgrades have been made, priced right, and excellent location.  So why weren't the offers coming in?  It was hard for prospective buyers to visualize the space.  Staging provided the "homey" feel that allowed buyers to picture themselves living in the space.

Well, here's the newest experience for my Brokers Book O' Events!  We all know how lendors/underwriters must do their final verification of employment in the few days surrounding our buyers closing date. Being the good little Broker that I am; I am sure to cover this part of the process in our initial interview, and again after our offer was accepted and we entered our 30 day road to close. Back in the fall of 2007 I met this delightful woman who found me from my real estate yard sign sitting on a property just around the corner from hers. Our friendship began that day when she told me all about her "ex" and the fact that he has inhabited their marital home for the past year while she and their 9 year old twin sons lived in a tiny apartment.  He was a stubborn, egoic man to say the leas...

The new Sweetery Company in down town Belvidere is a busy buzzing place with not just the little people visiting. The old fashioned colorful candy and ice cream store has something to offer for everyone. Midge McCaffrey (shown in the photo) and her husband are the proud owners of the Sweetery which has now been opened for a few weeks. It is located at 105 Buchanan Street and can be reached at (815) 544-3969. The store is also offering catering for your sweeter side of life and holds birthday parties. Needless to say it is a popular place. It is open seven days a week and will have longer and extended hours as of Memorial Day weekend.
