In offering advice to sellers on how to market their homes I've asked a guest, Donna Stoutenburg a home staging expert in the Northwest Suburbs to give us insight into her staging business. I'm a huge fan of staging your home and this is great advice on a very important subject. Here's some great tips on thinking like a buyer. Getting Your Home Ready to SellTo get a home ready for the market, it’s important to think like a buyer, not like a seller.  A buyer wants to walk into a home and feel like they could move right in.  An emotional connection is a key element in making that happen.  If your home has the right “look” it will sell quickly AND for the highest price.  Staging is a value added service that costs LESS than the first price reduction.  It’s all about proportion, scale, rhyt...

Real Estate Market Update - Northwest Suburbs - February 2014 This is the place to get those current housing questions answered about the real estate market in the Northwest Suburbs! Our local inventory level has continued to decrease and this should be considered a sellers market.  With these levels, buyers are knocking each other down to get into a listing that's priced well and in good condition. Overall housing inventory is down from 2013 by 20%. What about Prices?  Unfortunately prices are currently flat despite what the media is telling you everyday. All real estate is local so each different neighborhood and town is reacting differently with the spring market finally here. Mixed Signals causing Confusion!  Average Days on the Market are still extremely elevated in spite of our l...

  In offering advice to sellers on how to market their homes I've asked a guest, Teresa Colby-Dokubo a home staging expert in the Schaumburg Area to give us examples of most asked questions that she receives on a regular basis.  I'm a huge fan of staging your home and this is great advice on a very important subject - the pet odors that you might not know that you have! Here's some great tips on thinking (and smelling) like a buyer prefers. Animal odors can turn off potential home buyers and prevent your home from selling!  Animal odors are the top of the 'Uh-oh' home selling list.   Before you sell your home, walk through with a professional home stager and/or realtor who will give you an unbiased and honest opinion.  Pets are big culprits of bad odors, especially your beloved dogs and...

Hands down buying a home wins over renting! Well you say, I'm not sure I believe you because you're selling real estate and just want to make a sale. I'd love to make a sale and get you into a new home but only if it's right for you! There is so much evidence now that owning a home would be cheaper for you than renting that it's overwhelming. But let me give you some statistics so you can see where I'm coming from:   Mortgage rates are low and the monthly cost of owning a home is more affordable than at any point in the past 15 years and is less expensive than renting in a growing number of cities. If you are a buyer why not take advantage of this opportunity?  Why not live cheaper if you can?  Seems like a no-brainer. Financial wizard types like the Wall Street Journal, Money Magazine ...

Will Potential Buyers Love Your Wallpaper? "I love my wallpaper!" – This is a comment that I often hear when conducting real estate home staging consultations.  I also hear, "I don't like my wallpaper, but I'm not going to remove it just because I'm selling my home”.    The short and sweet answer is “NO”! Removing wallpaper is one of the top items on my list of what home owners need to do before listing their home for sale.   Wallp...

What mistakes do sellers make and how can you learn from their mistakes? Everyone wants to sell their home in a reasonable market time but many people don't realize the critical importance of some of these features. Agents have been polled on how their sellers have slowed or sabotaged their success in 2013. Don't make these top blunders when you put your home on the market. With a little pre-planning you can make your home sell faster enabling you to get an increased selling price.The top complaint (77%) has been that sellers have over-priced their home from the start. Many sellers have been misinterpreting the news each evening that home prices are jumping quickly back to pre-debacle prices. That is hardly the fact! Real estate is local and each subdivision in each town has been affect...

Real Estate Market Update - Northwest Suburbs - December 2013 What a finish to 2013! This is the place to get those housing questions answered about the current real estate market in the Northwest Suburbs! I'd like to report that 2013 sales have been up in our area in both housing types. The market improved consistently each and every month.  Our local inventory level has continued to decrease and ended at overall low levels. With our inventory level near 2-4 months this should be considered a sellers market.  With these levels, buyers should be knocking each other down in the driveway to get into a listing but that hasn't been happening except in the lower price ranges below $150,000. Overall housing inventory is down from 2012 by 30%. What about Prices?  Well, the national media is wr...
