debra kukulski cary barrington crystal lake algonquin il real estate homes for sale realtors foreclosures short sales: Where will real estate home prices be in 2016? - 10/20/15 11:48 PM
What will it cost you to wait until 2016 to buy a home?
Where Will Home Prices Be Next Year -  This Graph Shows Forecasted Home Appreciation Rates For 2016 Broken Down By State?
Per this forecast, home prices are expected to rise 3.5 Percent in Illinois!  Great news for home sellers in Illinois, not so great news to home buyers!
It may be wise to not wait....you will most likely get your home for a lower price and lower interest rate if you buy now since the real estate market is steadily increasing.....something to consider!

debra kukulski cary barrington crystal lake algonquin il real estate homes for sale realtors foreclosures short sales: Selling Your Home Without Hiring a Realtor - 08/26/14 02:08 AM
Many sellers believe it is any easy choice, especially if they do not have a lot of equity in their home, to try to sell by owner without the help of a professional Realtor.  
 
They think this will SAVE them money.  
 
This article and survey shows that a very small percentage of homes actually sell by owner and that the average sales price of a home sold though a Realtor is 230,000., while the typical home sold by owner has an average sales price of 184,000.!

debra kukulski cary barrington crystal lake algonquin il real estate homes for sale realtors foreclosures short sales: Foreclosures LOWEST since "Great Recession"! - 06/02/14 06:01 AM
This is excellent news!!!  Per National Association of Realtors, the number of homes that have been foreclosed upon in the past 12 months is the lowest we have seen in recent years.  It is good news for the real estate market, yes, but even better news for homeowners.  The number of home that have actually been foreclosed is down 18% April 2014 from April 2013.
Another highlight is that Illinois is no longer in the "Top 5" for highest number of foreclosures.  It's definitely great to see less people forced out of thier homes!
