mchenry county: McHenry County TEN QUESTIONS TO A FAIR ASSESSMENT - 04/13/09 11:46 AM

The local assessor may also be able to show you other properties similar to yours in your neighborhood. You can determine if your property is equitably assessed. He or she … (0 comments)

mchenry county: We Sold a Home! - 02/27/09 03:38 AM
Closed in Feb, but the contract was early January.
In the slowest month of the slowest market in at least the last 3 years, Dawn was able to sell one of our listings in ~60 days.  IT WAS NOT AN REO or SHORT SALE.
It was actually a very nice, newly remodelled home and a good deal for both parties ( I don't think the seller lost money, but didn't make much for the time and money put into it). 
The days of "Flip this House" in a month are over, but I believe that one can still make money on … (0 comments)

mchenry county: My Homes part duex - 12/31/08 02:18 AM
Both properties did not sell (39 surrey and 211 Huntington) , but were rented out within a couple of weeks (even with the holidays).  I guess we will wait until 2010 or later to sell.  It will give the market a couple more years to recover and the value of the properties to appreciate.
