As I'm trying to rein in the areas I service I'm starting to concentrate on my 3 main areas by creating hyper-local niche websites and doing some lead generating.  Below are 2nd quarter sales stats for single family homes in the following southwest Chicago suburbs: Orland Park is my main area and showed excellent 2nd quarter sales statistics for single family homes: there was a whopping 46.7% increase in the amount of single family Orland Park homes sold - that's huge! there was ...

Rebound Prices in California Do Not Equate to Orland Park, IL

judyo posted this 1 553 Views

I was recently on a listing appointment for a gorgeous Orland Park home.  It had been up with another agent.   Unfortunately, the owners purchased it new in 2006.  That was the peak year for Orland Park home prices and it's been downhill since. Some news stories are very positive about the real estate market, but the areas that are rebounding, like much of California, Las Vegas, Phoenix, etc., are completely different than the southwest Chicago suburbs.  Our market is busy and homes are s...

judyo posted this 859 Views

The following chart shows 2012 sales statistics for single family Orland Park homes. I love reviewing the full year charts for the towns I work in.  It shows the months that had the least and most activity:   June had the most homes up for sale - there were 360 single family Orland Park homes on the market. It's no surprise that December had the least amount of inventory for sale - 251 homes were available. Three months tied for the most homes going under contract - April,...

$21,007,402,045 of Real Estate Sold So Far in 2012 - MRED

judyo posted this 629 Views

That's a lot of properties sold!  MRED (Midwest Real Estate Data) is the MLS source for Northern IL real estate, and goes into some border towns of Wisconsin and Indiana.  So far in 2012 over 21 billion dollars worth of real estate has been sold via our MLS, which used to be the largest in the nation.  With some states trying to create statewide MLS's, like California, MRED has fallen on the list by size, but it still covers a lot of territory. I get a lot of inquiries from people tha...

Beautiful Fog

judyo posted this 2 900 Views

We've been having some high temps in the Homer Glen/Orland Park area this winter, which is fine with me.  I hate cold and snow and wish I were in my townhouse in Scottsdale, AZ right now, even though it's not really bad for January here in the Chicago suburbs.  We've had record low snow this winter.  Yippee! Last week we truly had some "balmy" weather for this time of year and as I drove home from some real estate home showings I was amazed at the sights I was seeing in Orland Park an...
