Elk Grove Village IL Median Home Prices The graph displayed below is the median home prices in Elk Grove Village from June 2007 to June 2009.  The median price is the point at which half of all homes are sold for more and half are sold for less.   It gives an idea of what priced properties are selling in the community.  When the median price is on the lower end, more reasonably priced homes are selling vs. the higher end homes.  In the current market since January 2009, you can see that the median priced home was $228,000 and then rebounded for June with a price of $282,000   This is also following the trend that I have personally seen with first time home buyers moving along the market.  Foreclosures are traditionally priced below market and are also adjusting the price downward.  Ther...

It better shine! Recently I was contacting a seller back and forth about the condition and markability of her property.  It's the situation where we have no 'wow' factor.  It's not that her home isn't clean - it's just OK.  Everything in every room of the house is just OK. No pizazz, no sparkle, no shine.  To better attract an offer, I began to have the worn out discussion with the seller that we've got to punch it up to the next level - add that shine!  Everywhere!  I want everything scrubbed - polished - brushed and then shined again!  The drill sargeant's (that's me) directions were very specific:  all chrome fixtures - I want to be able see my face in it!   All appliances in the kitchen sprayed and cleaned with windex to remove all the cooking grime - I want sparkle!  I want it to s...

Replacement of a normal roof is said to be between 15 and 30 years. That’s a pretty big span of time.  It seems to matter of course how the roof is being taken care of, which way it faces, weather conditions, etc. as to what a roof’s life span will be.The most common buyer question that I receive is when the roof is around 15 years old in our Chicago Area.  The roof is looking a little ‘worn’ and sometimes depending on the color – a little beat up!  Think of all that rain and snow falling on your head for 15 years! Roofs are tough, but how to determine if it has a problem?Asphalt roofing materials have a granular surface, much like fine gravel. As the asphalt ages, it becomes brittle, and these granules will come out over time. If you seea lot of these granules in gutters, chances are t...
