oak lawn real estate: Zillowpress Websites - 04/23/13 03:43 AM
UPDATE:  I've once again switched up my websites (I'll be writing another post about it - it's brutal)!  I changed the link to the new domain on my Zillowpress website.
I never thought I'd be writing this post.  I've never had anything good to say about Zillow.  But I wanted to create hyper-local blogs for my 2 main towns that I work and live in, so I checked out all the different website offerings.
EDIT:  Check out my updated Websitebox review.  They keep improving and their inidividual IDX results pages are full of information now.  I tried Websitebox and I wanted … (22 comments)

oak lawn real estate: Oak Lawn Real Estate Supply & Demand for 2009 - 01/28/10 09:47 AM
The chart below reflects supply and demand for single family Oak Lawn homes for 2009. 

As you can see, there was a huge oversupply of homes for sale in Oak Lawn in every month of 2009.  There was a slight drop in inventory in February but it climbed through the end of the year.  On the positive side, sales and closings increased.  But as you can see, 2009 was truly a buyer's market for Oak Lawn homes for sale.
When you see a market with such a huge discrepancy of available properties vs. those that have actually sold and … (0 comments)

oak lawn real estate: REO Listing Agents Not Listing Oak Lawn Condos Correctly - 04/16/09 08:36 AM
I recently wrote another article on this subject here regarding a different Oak Lawn condo for sale.  That listing was listed with no mention of the in-unit laundry room it offered.  And it was a nice sized laundry room that an owner could use a full-sized washer and dryer in.  But the listing agent did not show that this laundry room existed.  That is a huge thing!
In-unit laundry rooms bring more money to sellers.  They are more desirable by buyers and can sell a property quicker.  This unit was priced well, but if the laundry room had been listed it … (0 comments)

oak lawn real estate: A Topix Post Made Me Exceed My Bandwidth - 11/22/08 11:47 AM
I became an editor of Topix.com for Oak Lawn Illinois because of another Active Rainer, Bill Gassett.  It's been fun and I've started to interact with some of the readers in the Topix forum. 
It only takes a few minutes a day to find articles to post as I have a Google alert set up for Oak Lawn.  Sometimes I use my own blog articles.  And it was one article that captured a lot of interest.
I wrote about an Oak Lawn car dealership and how they were offering a Buy One Car, Get Another for $1.00.  I even put a real estate … (225 comments)

oak lawn real estate: My Home Town - 04/30/07 06:59 AM
Although I've lived in different Cook County towns, I've spent the most time in Oak Lawn and I currently reside in Oak Lawn now.  In fact, I just left my long-time Oak Lawn brokerage that I was with for 22 years to work in a better company with offices in Chicago and Orland Park.
I have built up a following for Oak Lawn real estate and continue working in my home town.  One of my most recent transactions was an Oak Lawn condo for sale.  Another agent in my office found the buyer so we were able to sell the Oak … (5 comments)
