streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL Real Estate - How's the market doing now? - 10/10/13 11:13 AM
What's happening this quarter? Glad you're here because people are always asking me “How many homes are selling?" How well we are seeing improvement seems to make a difference in what area or subdivision you live in.  It’s really not an evasive answer, it's an accurate one.  Each area and subdivision is totally different! 
Here’s what I can tell you about the overall Streamwood market –
Single Family Homes -  Streamwood averages 44 home sales a month.  Inventory is down substantially from previous years.  The percentage of homes going under contract each month is 22 to 29%. Average Sold Price was $171,000 for the … (0 comments)

streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL Real Estate - Are people buying with that much cash? - 09/29/13 01:41 AM
Cash is king again?
I was poised to write about how cash has taken over the market from a national RealtyTrac survey but was surprised to find that is not the case in Streamwood!
Conventional financing has squeeked out a win for financing types but just by a nose. Goes to show you how each community is recovering at different levels in different ways. Here we have cash, FHA and conventional all nearly identical for Streamwood.  
Still have to wonder where all these folks are getting their cash to purchase these homes. Investors are obviously working with it so they … (0 comments)

streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL Real Estate - What are home prices doing? - 02/24/12 06:36 AM
There's been much talk (chatter by the national talking heads) in the media about our Northwest Suburban and Streamwood home values returning to a previous level. I read these reports constantly, day in and day out and wonder to myself 'How do they know this stuff when I don't even know it!'Real estate is unique in that it is very local in nature. In fact, real estate is so unique it can even be broken down further to say that neighborhoods even in the same town will been effected differently. What happens in one subdivision doesn't necessary happen in another. What … (1 comments)

streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL Real Estate - What's the market doing now? - 10/24/11 07:18 AM
Signs of life in our Streamwood IL Real Estate Market recently.  We are moving ahead and sales have finally reached above the 2010 level of closings.  For the 3rd Quarter of 2011 Streamwood Single Family Homes are 13% above 2010 closings and Streamwood Multi-Family are 14% over 2010.As of yet there are still no price gains that I can see with the foreclosures still leading the way in current sales. If all goes well, the next trend will be for prices to finally level off and slight increases to begin.  This also would depend on how much inventory we have going … (0 comments)

streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL Homes - Pricing your home to SELL - 08/09/11 12:00 PM
Pricing your home to sell - how shall we arrive at a good price?  
Well there’s actually three things that are enmeshed together:  they are Price, Condition, Location.  All three actually make your Streamwood IL home either sell or be rejected by prospective buyers.
Obviously in this market with the elevated inventory you have to be ‘spot on’ with your homes price.  Too high and no one will take your home seriously and it will be passed over.  A fair price – what a seller is willing to accept and a buyer is willing to pay.  That’s what we normally strive … (0 comments)

Obviously in this market we have too much supply. When that happens the time it takes to sell your Streamwood home also goes up. Buyers have a tremendous amount to … (0 comments)

streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL - Townhomes, Condos, Foreclosures - 06/02/11 12:46 PM
Streamwood townhome foreclosures and 'better priced values' are being scooped up the fastest.  Short sales?  Well, they fell terribly 'short' for our area.  From working with my own buyers, short sales offer too many hassles and not enough price rewards for dealing with the banks as a seller.  Dealing with a bank = headaches and massive quantities of Tylenol.There are many great values to be had on the market right now.  The average list price in Streamwood is $146,742 and there are many homes available in the most popular price range of $150,000 to $200,000.  The lowest price for sale right … (0 comments)

streamwood il real estate: Streamwood IL Homes - What type of financing was used? - 02/25/11 10:55 AM
Streamwood IL Homes - What types of financing was used? While the Blog Dog and I were investigating the total sales for each property type on Streamwood IL Homes we noticed a few striking differences between Streamwood single family homes and multi-family home sales.
Depending on what type of property you have will figure into your buying or selling strategy.  Types of financing that buyers use have different criteria and variables that sellers must pay attention too.  On FHA purchases the home must have minimum standards to protect the buyer from unknown future mechanical breakdowns.  When the appraisal is done on these properties the appraisers … (3 comments)
