Homer Glen Homes Supply & Demand for 2011 As you can see from the chart showing the entire year of 2011 for supply and demand of single family Homer Glen homes, there were way too many homes up for sale compared to homes that went under contract or ended up closing.  Every single month showed a h...

The other day I received an e-mail notification that a buyer I had never met wanted to make an offer on an Orland Park foreclosure home that I never showed him.  It was priced around $100,000, which is low for the village as the average sales price for homes in Orland Park for the 1st 6 months of...
