Vernon Hills Real Estate- What Vernon Hills homes went under contract and why?

Real Estate Sales Representative with Coldwell Banker Long Grove

Vernon Hills Real Estate Recap

Are you curious as to what Vernon Hills real estate homes went under contract in the first 68 days of 2010? Everyone else ( including all my clients) looking in Vernon Hill seem to be!

Whether you are in the market to buy a Vernon Hills home or to sell your current Vernon Hills  home, it is important to keep abreast of market statistics (or at least to work with a knowledgeable Vernon Hills REALTOR who does). Newspapers, national magazines, and television news report on regional and national trends, but aren't doing a very good job of explaining the local real estate market in Vernon Hills. The number of new housing starts nationwide or the percentage increase in foreclosures or short sales in the entire state have very little, if any, bearing on how quickly your Vernon Hills real estate is worth in the  Vernon Hills subdivisions of Centennial Crossing, Deerpath or Sugar Creek.

A few days ago, I was watching a real estate video clip on the ABC news and I really appreciated the way the reporter, Leah Hope, summarized the state of today's real estate market.  In order to sell a home today, the  price and condition  of your home  does not have to be comparable, it has to be compelling. How true is this statement!

In the Vernon Hills real estate analysis below, it shows that the Vernon Hills real estate listing prices at the time the contracts  were entered into were compelling!   Also note that 2 of the contracts were short sales! If you would like to know the sale prices of these homes when they actually close, please do not hesitate to call me or email me. There were 18 homes that went under contract in Vernon Hills since the beginning of the year...

Judy:  The houses are not the only thing in real estate that needs to be compelling ... we real estate professionals better be compelling as well these days!
