northwest suburban homes: Northwest Suburban Real Estate Market Report - March 2012 - 04/11/12 06:00 AM
Real Estate Market Update - Northwest Suburbs - March 2012 Interest rates are low and housing affordability has been the best in decades and yes, the market is getting better! How much, where and all the particulars is what I'll be telling you!

Another good indication that the market is improving is the number of homes that go under contract each month. Currently we are between 10 to 25%. This … (4 comments)

northwest suburban homes: Northwest Suburban Real Estate Market - Is it Spring yet? - 03/10/12 02:47 PM
Real Estate Market Update - Northwest Suburbs - February 2012 Interest rates are low and housing affordability has been the best in decades and yet I was hoping the market would be ending a little better. FHA buyers will be taking a hit to their pocketbooks in April with higher monthly mortgage insurance costs looming on the horizon.  It seems that with each slight lowering of interest rates the banks are elevating the closing costs for buyers to offset that bonus. Makes you wonder who's side they are on? Obviously, their own and not the consumer.
The graphs show that February … (3 comments)

northwest suburban homes: TODAY'S MARKET OUTLOOK! Northwest Chicago Suburbs, Schaumburg IL - 04/04/08 03:34 PM
EVERY REAL ESTATE MARKET IS LOCAL.  ASK A SEASONED REALTOR, LIKE LYN SIMS, WHAT'S GOING ON LOCALLY!
This time may be your "best opportunity" market in years!  Mortgage interest rates are low and prices in Northwest Illinois are still holding fairly well, generally area prices are flat.  The median price home sale in Illinois is actually UP at $198,768*.  The Chicago Median Price for a home is $264,271* which is also UP.  NOT EVERYWHERE IN EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD ARE PRICES FALLING.  That's why I'm saying the real estate market is local - it even makes a difference from subdivsion to subdivision in every single town!  But, … (0 comments)

northwest suburban homes: Pet Rules - Humor for Dog & Cat Lovers from Lyn Sims RE/MAX Suburban - 02/19/08 08:27 AM
PET RULESTo be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.Dear Dogs and Cats,The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food.  Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest. The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.  Beating me to the bottom is not the object.  Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster … (11 comments)
