Contact us

Call us at 630-503-6555 with all your real estate questions.  Your goal is our goal.  We will do everything we can to help you reach your goal.

If you are thinking about buying a home this year you need to contact a loan officer and get them all your financial information.  You need to go through the underwriting process so you know what you are approved for before starting to look at homes.  You will be at a disadvantage if you do not go through this process.  Homes are going under contract quickly and seller’s are looking for a buyer that is ready to go without having to wait to see if you qualify.

Request a home valuation if you are thinking about selling your home.  Tell us a little bit about your home and what has recently been updated.  We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you and estimate of expenses to sell.  When an offer comes in and we know all the terms we will update the net proceeds so you can make a good decision.

You can sign-up for email alerts to keep an eye on the market.

If you use Facebook you can go to our business page and look for the button “shop now” and search anywhere in Illinois.

You can also contact us and we can set you up to receive listings in real time as soon as they hit the market.  Let us know what areas you are looking at. How many bedrooms and other criteria that is important to you.

All data provided today is from our MLS system.  MRED, LLC.  It updates constantly so the information I downloaded this morning is not the same as it is right now.

Aurora-21                  Bolingbrook-11

Naperville-17             Plainfield-22

1 short sale was accepted this week by a seller.  It was in Aurora.  Most homes have appreciated enough that seller’s do not have to sell short.  They must of run into trouble shortly after purchasing.  Now it will be submitted to the lender to see if they will also accept.

Seller’s accepted contracts that are contingent on the buyer closing on their current home. 1 with a kick-out clause of 48 hours and 1 with 24 hours.

Not all contracts that get accepted close.  That is why there is more accepted than closed.  Some of them do not make it past the attorney review and home inspection.  They go back on the market and get accepted again.  

The closed column is the most important one to look at because that is actual numbers for the Fox Valley area.

Prices will keep increasing as long as the inventory remains so extremely low.

You have to be a patient buyer in this market.  You have to keep looking at what comes up and be ready to go look.  If you can find something that is close to your needs it might be worth going after.
