I must admit that someone is watching The Jerry Springer Show within earshot of me right now. It started me thinking that - of course some people don’t believe that the guests and stories on that show are real and their stories true…  And, you can’t always believe what you read and watch and hear.  My intention is to provide a precise snapshot of 2005 - 2009 sales of properties (listed/sold and reported within the multiple listing service)  by town. This will allow the you, the reader, true information on which to base your own opinions. How does the economic recovery look to you?                   Watch for further information as it pertains to other towns ... and if you want specific information regarding your town... please don't hesitate to visit my website/text or phone. www.LResni...

At least the realtors and landlords know that in the economic time with which we find ourselves, getting 100% qualified renters with clean credit: is not commonplace.  Many unfortunate people have fallen prey to the economic turn that has thrown our county into a tail spin. And those folks are not what this blog is about. Just because someone has an unfortunate event, doesn't mean that you have to fall prey to the "Serial Stealer".    Families who move around and continue to rent when they have no intentions of paying.  I dealt with such people for 4 years - Only paid on time and in full, twice in the period that they lived in my property.  And with the constant flow of additional squatters, the untold wear and tear: well it is hard to put in words.   Heads up Carol Stream.................

I have never had a property that was to be auctioned, but now I ahve to appear at one. Do I twittle my thumbs on the magic day or do something? I can smile!!!!! Location: 873 River, Carol Stream, IL. The bank has already denied a purchase at 76% of asking with 23% down. Minor item - property now 98% of my offer. Bank reserves the right to not accept final highest offer at auction. Is this a sane scenario? The last property tgat I lost to an auction came back as a cureent listing. Want to buy a property at 72.5% of list price? Are all banks  this far out in left field? I usually get it sold between 75% and 80% of asking price. Perhaps it is a sign of things to come. AIG is an example of GREED.
