joe graham: New Fed Leadership Will Affect Naperville Home Loan Rates - 03/11/14 03:03 AM

On January 6, the Senate confirmed Janet Yellen to head the Federal Reserve’s Board of Governors, making it the first time ever that a woman has led the nation’s most important financial institution. In some respects, it makes her the most powerful woman in the United States.
As with every personnel change in the Fed, Yellen’s rise has fostered plenty of concerns about the direction the Federal Reserve will take under her leadership. Since it’s the institution that determines the federal funds rate—which in turn dictates how much businesses and individuals pay for their loans—any change in Federal Reserve policy has … (1 comments)

joe graham: Downsizing Is Just One Empty Nesters' Possibility - 03/04/14 01:40 AM

The children have grown; home feels…a little empty…
Many people assume that an empty nest means it’s downsizing time—time for a smaller house or condo. In truth, for many a homeowner in Naperville, downsizing is just one of a number of appealing directions.
It may sound obvious, but it’s your interests and plans that should guide your next step. After a lifetime of deferring to other people’s priorities, many of us are ill-prepared to think creatively about what it is we want. When we do, downsizing might not necessarily be the springboard to life’s next great adventure.

joe graham: Buying A Home Means Considering Things Like Flood Insurance - 03/03/14 05:00 AM
It can be perplexing—and not least because it’s one of the least-discussed details you run into when buying a home. The issue is flood insurance, and it’s sometimes first brought to the fore when you are buying a home in Naperville that you would not have thought was on a “flood plain.” If it is, it’s going to require flood insurance before the bank will sign off on a loan.

joe graham: Flipping A Home In Naperville: Clearing The Finance Barrier - 02/26/14 01:58 AM
In conjunction with the rise in house prices, the profit potential for flipping a home in town is once more drawing the entrepreneur-minded.  
Flipping a home is the process of purchasing a property—often one in a rundown condition—then improving its value and reselling it for a quick profit. Quick is the key word in this strategy, since a fast turnover allows capital to be devoted to purchase and renovation rather than operating and maintenance costs. It’s why successful house flippers generally focus on quick gains over maximizing profits.  
While this has proven to be a lucrative strategy in the … (0 comments)

joe graham: Rise in Naperville Real Estate Prices Cause Dominoes to Rise - 02/25/14 01:56 AM
That Naperville real estate prices have been on the rise for a while is certainly one factor that has coaxed some of the more cautious people looking to buy a Naperville home off the sidelines. It’s made the market a much more lively (and happy!) place than it was a few years ago—and forecasters are fairly uniform in predicting continuing growth, though at a less overheated pace.
For those who are even more cautious, the question remains whether property values and the Naperville real estate prices that reflect them are likely to hold up over the long haul. They may … (0 comments)

joe graham: Why Naperville Listings Resemble Fashion in Men’s Ties - 02/20/14 01:32 AM

It’s a little like fashion in men’s ties. The really wide or narrow ones you laugh at today will be back in style sooner or later. There’s an analogy in our Naperville listings.
After the financial crisis in 2007, the average size of homes began to shrink. One major casualty was the “specialty room.” Specialty rooms (or special function rooms) are any room that serves a non-standard purpose. In the Naperville listings, you find them described as gyms, saunas, home offices, laundry rooms, home theaters, au-pair suites, “man-caves” and outdoor living rooms.

joe graham: An Open House In Naperville Is Like Your Own World Premiere - 02/19/14 12:15 AM
Your first open house in Naperville can be compared to a movie’s world premiere. We may not have strobes flashing and paparazzi jostling each other, but all eyes are definitely on the above-the-title headline star: your house.
It’s a star that has to look its glamorous best, too, or the fans will be disappointed. The purpose of any Naperville open house is to sell buyers on the largely emotional dream of potentially owning your home.

joe graham: Timing is Key When Deciding Whether to Buy a Home in Naperville - 02/17/14 12:45 AM
Spring signals the traditional start of real estate’s busy selling season, and while that’s all well and fine, when it comes to making your own momentous personal real estate decision—whether to buy a home or to sell your own—trying to decide exactly when to make the move is easier said than done.
It is true that this year national observers are unusually unanimous in expecting that last year’s sales upswing will continue. But if you are deciding whether now is the right time to buy a Naperville home (or list yours for sale), the reasons behind the quickening sales activity … (0 comments)
