This graph is a current example of how the Schaumburg Real Estate Market has improved over the last year. There is a lowered percentage of short sales and foreclosures (REO's) within the overall market. Why is this important? The less bottom basement prices we have in the Schaumburg housing market the better. Prices are now on the increase but not as fast as what the media is reporting for some areas of the country. Since all real estate is local, we can only pay attention to what is happening right here in our neighborhoods. All neighborhoods have been effected differently and if you are thinking of selling, we need to approach your homes market value with critical focus. Perhaps for you, it might be a good time to sell! Please contact me for a tailor made market evaluation with no obl...

Assessment notices for Schaumburg Township have been mailed out 8/19/14 so look for that in your mailbox. It's important because if you do not like the assessment and feel that it is incorrect or unjust you have the right to appeal that assessment by September 29, 2014.How to file an appeal is on the Schaumburg Township website. The biggest mistake that I find homeowners make is the thinking 'my house isn't worth this much anymore'. The assessor does not think like a buyer or seller! This is crucial to your success in an appeal. You must leave that mentality behind and fight the assessment using their terms. 'Lack of uniformity' in layman's terms means that your house is being assessed over and above others in that same sized house. A great example is when your neighbor, living in the ...

This is the place to get those Northwest Suburban real estate questions answered! Our Northwest Suburban inventory level has held steadily and going unchanged through July.

Working with a good loan officer is paramount in your home buying success. Let's face it, no one has the cash to purchase a home outright anymore so everyone turns to a lender for advice and guidance.  (updated 3/25/17)What you should look for in a loan officer is their ability to fit you into particular programs that you didn't know about that might be a benefit to you. Here's a great example if you need down payment assistance. Instead of waiting a few more months to save up that complete down payment this program can help you out. You must meet certain income requirements and know the program guidelines. Afterwards, you can see if it can work for you or not.I work selling homes to people that need a variety of financing types. A good loan officer fits the programs to the buyers needs...

Real Estate Market Update - Northwest Suburbs - March 2014 This is the place to get those Northwest Suburban real estate questions answered! Our Northwest Suburban inventory level is extremely low overall - down by 11% over last year.  With these levels, buyers are having to hurry to see what's newly available on the market. Price your Northwest home well, make it shine with staging and you will be rewarded with an offer.      Whoops, buyers are confused! I've noticed that buyers are seeing homes quickly when they come on the market but are oblivious to the competition around them when they make an offer. With this low of an inventory level, why start your offer process $30,000 under list?  The market has changed but your strategy is lagging behind when inventory was in excess.  A selle...
