plainfield il homes for sale: Housing by the Numbers 2010 - Spotlight on duplexes, condos and townhomes | Plainfield IL Market Reports - 05/02/11 04:58 AM
It's hard to know where we are going if we have no idea where we are coming from.  In order to make sense of the numbers year to year and month by month, we have to have something to compare the health of the real estate economy in Plainfield IL to, and last year, only 199 attached single family properties sold.  In 365 days, that's not a lot of property... but to put in into perspective, Plainfield is mainly comprised of single family homes, so those numbers do not alarm me as much as those figures might suggest. 
What always alarms … (0 comments)

Wow, I’ve been neglecting my blog because I’ve been busy working, (which is good right?)  but I have a lot of catching up to do!  I can’t believe it’s March already!  I’ve got the January market report for you for Plainfield ready now, and it’s painting a better picture of something I thought might have skewed the upbeat numbers last month.  December 30th was originally the date that buyers had to close by in order to qualify for the tax credit last year, and there was a mad rush to purchase property in the last quarter of the year.  Unfortunately, January’s … (0 comments)

plainfield il homes for sale: December 2009 Closings vs. December 2010 | Plainfield IL Real Estate Closings - 01/21/11 06:09 AM
A shimmer of hope.  A spark?  A flicker of light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel?!  Say it’s true… oh, someone say that it’s true.
In what is often thought to be one of the slowest months in real estate here in the Midwest, there is a positive trend in the real estate numbers here in Plainfield that can be seen when we compare the numbers in real estate closings from December 2009 with the numbers from this past December 2010.

Handymen are hard to come by in Plainfield IL.  Good ones anyway... so I'm going to share my secret.  My neighbor was having a new door installed on his house last month, so I stopped over to ask the workers for a business card since we are in the market for a new set of storm doors as well. Actually I have a long list of things we are in the market for... but that day it was the door that caught my eye.

plainfield il homes for sale: Fine Dining at The Melting Pot in Naperville IL | Plainfield IL Homes for Sale - 06/14/10 06:16 PM
My in-laws offered to babysit for us this weekend so that Tony and I could go out for dinner.  Despite our favorite downtown Plainfield IL restaurants like Baci's, The Front Street Cantina, and Bin 48... we opted to try something different.
It's been a while since we've had a chance to eat out sans kids, so we decided to take full advantage of not having to order from a children's menu, cut up food into tiny pieces, or ask for extra napkins.  We could never "foudue" with our crazy crew with hot burners in the middle of the table, but it's … (0 comments)

plainfield il homes for sale: Hazards of the Profession: A case of what the grass is like on the other side | Plainfield IL Homes for Sale - 06/08/10 06:43 PM
Last week my sellers at 2212 Candlewood Dr. in Plainfield IL sold their home, and they needed to find a new home on the double!
One of the hazards of my profession is wanting to move into a vast majority of the homes I preview with clients.  Like... real bad.
It depends on the price range, and the sellers taste in decor of course, but I get a really bad case of "keeping up with the Jone's" when I see something I like. 
The awesomeness of home shopping with the Farrows is that they have 5 kids too.  They were looking … (0 comments)

plainfield il homes for sale: How long do short sales take to get approved… I meal like, REALLY take? | Plainfield IL Homes for Sale - 05/18/10 04:56 PM
Now that the home buyer credit has expired for qualified buyers, those that missed out on the opportunity to get the credit will now be looking to save some money on the purchase of their new home. Short sales were overlooked during the frenzy to purchase a property before the credit expired because of the length of time it took to get them approved, but they are now back in the game.
But exactly how long do short sales to get approved?
Knowing that I wasn't going to get an easy answer, I decided the most objective way to … (2 comments)

This whole short sale business has my nerves on end.  I've got between 1 and 2 homes closing every month since I've filled the pipeline, but wow... I swear I learn something new every single time.
I've been too busy to blog.  Not only is real estate keeping me busy, but I do have 5 young children that keep me pretty busy too, lol!  Despite the fact that my head is spinning and my nerves are shot, I thought it was worthwhile to stay up a little later tonight to write this post.
One of my properties was supposed to … (2 comments)
