naperville homes: New Year’s Frame of Mind (and Naperville Real Estate) - 01/03/16 11:24 PM
Here’s hoping that 2016 proves to be a remarkably healthy, happy, and prosperous one for you and your family. And if ‘enjoying life to the fullest’ this year involves buying or selling a Naperville area home, I hope you’ll give me a call!  Along with all of last week’s New Year’s Day festivities came what you could call the New Year’s Frame of Mind: the familiar, this-time-of-year special consciousness of the passage of time. For most Naperville area residents, all the other seasons come and go with everyone too busy tending to everyday affairs to pay much attention to the big picture: the progress (or lack of … (0 comments)

naperville homes: Naperville Homeowners Easily Conquer Bad Home Habits - 08/26/15 12:50 AM
Naperville Homeowners Easily Conquer Bad Home Habits  
Naperville homeowners take note:
Neglecting your filters!
That was only one of many “bad home habits” blogger Annie Stevens admitted to in last week’s confessional outpouring on the Aussie web site Domain. “Bad home habits” may not be a phrase Naperville homeowners are accustomed to thinking about, but it’s an idea worth mulling—especially if selling your Naperville home is something that could be in your immediate (or even middling) future.
In its mildest form, a Stevens bad home habit would be one that needs to be straightened out before John and Jane Q. Public come to look your house over after … (0 comments)

naperville homes: Mapping Out the Real Costs of Building a New Home in Naperville - 08/19/15 04:04 AM
Mapping Out the Real Costs of Building a New Home in Naperville
 
If you are considering buying a new home in Naperville, it might have occurred to you that building your own could be another option. Even if you aren’t one who has always dreamed of designing your own new home with exactly the features you want (and none you don’t), the idea might seem worth exploring—particularly when the reasonable asking prices for some of today’s Naperville “land-only” listings make for tempting daydreaming…
The fact is, few have actually mapped out the cost of building their own Naperville new home, for a number of … (0 comments)

naperville homes: Naperville Real Estate Watchers Give Price Graph a Double-Take - 08/18/15 04:18 AM
Naperville Real Estate Watchers Give Price Graph a Double-Take
When Naperville real estate trackers keep tabs on the progress of the national rebound, they note the findings of the major pollsters and data miners, read what the pundits have to offer, and look at charts and graphs—lots of charts and graphs.   
The graphs that chart residential real estate price history for the last decade or so tend to look very similar. It doesn’t matter whether they’re showing regional or state or national price movements. If they’re line graphs, they look like a cross-section of a trampoline just as it’s about to propel a 7-year-old into the … (0 comments)

naperville homes: Naperville Update: Zero Interest Mortgage Idea Still an Experiment - 06/22/15 10:31 PM
Naperville Update: Zero Interest Mortgage Idea Still an Experiment  
Naperville home buying activity may be going great guns, but for some would-be buyers, credit score woes are still a stubborn obstacle. That’s why we have been keeping an eye on the new pilot project that was announced late last year. This was the one called the "Wealth Building Home Loan." It’s an experiment aimed at opening up home ownership options, particularly for first time home buyers. Bank of America and Citibank were first to sign up for the program, said to “take a fresh approach to affordable mortgage lending.” It sounds like a pretty good … (1 comments)

naperville homes: Naperville Homes.. Now is the Perfect Time to Buy! - 03/31/15 02:01 AM
Naperville Homes.. Now is the Perfect Time to Buy! A few weeks ago, an eye-catching article surfaced on the Investopedia web site—one with the arresting title of “When is the Right Time to Buy a Home?” I have always assumed that for prospective Naperville home buyer, the answer to that question varies by the individual circumstances. But if there is a more cut-and-dried universal answer, it would certainly be good to know it. Definitely worth reading.
Despite its name, Investopedia is not an encyclopedic history of investing. Its own history is interesting, though—it started in Canada, was acquired by Forbes, then sold a short while later … (0 comments)

Creative Kitchen Spruce-Ups Boost Naperville Home Marketability  
Just as the kitchen is a magnet for family activity, when a Naperville home goes up for sale, it’s the one room guaranteed to get rapt attention at every showing. Older Naperville homes can be at something of a disadvantage here, especially when structural design elements prohibit their being transformed into one of today’s popular airy open plan kitchens.
 
Perhaps you've already taken a paintbrush to your cabinets to give them a new look, or discovered the transformative power of inexpensive subway tile on a dingy backsplash. If your kitchen is still looking a bit uninspired, enhance … (0 comments)

With a Naperville Real Estate Agent plus the Right Mindset… Unless you’ve had occasion to buy a corporate jet or office building recently, the sheer size of a home purchase puts it in a class of its own. One indicator is that most people decide to engage the services of a Naperville real estate agent to help them out. This is not a trip to the mall...
It follows that first-time home buyers usually approach the whole process with a great deal of caution—an entirely appropriate attitude. Buying a home is one purchase you will be living with for a long time, so getting it right … (0 comments)

Nightline says Reality TV House Flipping isn’t Realistic
 
ABC’s Nightline recently aired an interesting segment about house flipping, which included a magic number that’s probably never been seen before.Naperville house flippers would have been glued to their TVs if they’d stayed up late enough to catch Nightline, because if authentically magical, it’s a good number to know.
 
The segment was part of a series called “Realty Check.” This one was about new strategies in the “ever-competitive world of flipping.” The show started with some background about how expensive house flipping can be if it’s done in a hurry and … (0 comments)
