Spring Flower

The spring weather continues to send rain and more rain in the Chicagoland area.  With the spring market in full swing and less than a week away from the end of April how’s our small town doing when it comes to Single Family home sales?

                         TOTAL   MARKET    NEW     SHORT SALE      FORECLOSURE
Closed YTD        59               20            12                 13                             14

As of 4/22/2011  – We have had 59 sold homes.  Of those 59 – 20 were regular market listings (i.e. Not a foreclosure, short sale or new construction).  New homes sales are at 12 homes, 13 short sales, and 14 foreclosures.

Currently we have 63 homes that have contracts but have some sort of contingency before they actually set a closing date.  Some of the normal contigencies are, attorney review, financing contingency and in the case of a short sale, bank approval.

In the pending category we have 18 pending homes.  The contigencies have been met and the closing date has been set or is close to be set – the loan is in underwriting and everyone is waiting for a clear to close.

Here is a short sale in Oswego that is currently under contract:

Ashcroft Place Short Sale

If you are a homebuyer still sitting on the proverbial fence…jump off it today!  There are some wonderful homes in great condition waiting for you.  With the lending picture getting tighter each month you really can’t afford to wait.  If they get rid of government guaranteed loans will you have the possible 20% down that some experts are predicting?
Whether you are looking for an existing home, distressed home or want to build your perfect new home, call me.  As a former new home sales person I am very familiar with the new construction subdivisions in town and will hold your hand throughout the process.  Building a home is a different type of transaction and if you have not done it before you really need to have an expert with you.
All in all, Oswego is doing much better than some of our neighbors!  Let’s keep the momentum going!

  • ~ Closed in Less Than 90 Days

    Closed in Less Than 90 Days"Recently my mom passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.   Being an only child her death devasted me and left me with a multitude of things to take care of and decisions to make.  My husband, Mark, was a tremendous help. When we realized we needed to sell her home in Oswego, we turned to Evelyn for help.  She was sensitive to what we were going through.  She walked us through each and every part of the process from cleaning some things out, cleaning up, staging and helping us to decide on a listing price.  She was fair, honest and compassionate every single step of the way. Because of her knowledge of the real estate market my mom's home sold (and closed) in under 90 days!!  In todays market that was fantastic.  We truly believed it would not have sold as quickly if it were not for Evelyn  and her expertise.
