The other day I was in the City and I decided to go to the Modern Wing of the Art Institute. The Art Insttitute is known for its Impressionism Art but the Modern Wing is quite nice. Here are some pictures I took of the art inside.

THE CHICAGO IL REAL ESTATE MARKET, AND OTHER THINGS CHICAGO, FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF A LITTLE WHITE DOG! Hey, you dogs!  OK . . . who is a Hockey Fan?  I bleed Cubbie Blue as quickly as any native Chicago Dog - but, now, we seem to have a New Sports Passion around our town - The Mighty Chicago Blackhawks! Our Home Team is up 2 games to one over the San Jose Sharks in the Stanley Cup Playoff Semi Finals, playing tonight at the United Center on the West Side of Chicago, for Game Three. We seem to really have a chance this year, you dogs!  And, what's even sweeter, there isn't a rival Detroit Red Wing in sight.  That dreaded team from Hockey Town made an early exit from the playoffs, and we haven't seen them since. "Here Come the Hawks!" You know, I am generally a responsible, non-indulg...

It's an old question, here in Chicago and across the U.S.  "When does the Real Estate Market heat up again after its usual seasonal slowdown between Halloween and the New Year? The old salt suggests the market begins to thaw in the springtime.  Here in Chicago, that is usually when average daily temperatures reach the freezing mark or above.  This time of the year, we Chicagoans consider 32 degrees quite mild, you know! Backing the onset of nice weather by adding a normal 45-day home closing processing and approval schedule, you roughly reach into to early February - around the time of that Big Football Game.  In our Team's experience, however, things start to rekindle way before that around Chicago. True, in November and December, many potential homebuyers and homesellers minds turn to...

Good Morning! Here's our Chicago Market Stats Update, based on data compiled Sunday evening, April 5, 2009. The jump in Closed Units and Expired Listings is somewhat typical for the end of the month, and the end of the quarter.   Indeed, many over-priced listings set to expire at the end of the First Quarter, 2009 have done so.  Those properties priced correctly, it would seem, have sold. Active Listings again stable. Sales Volume up SIGNIFICANTLY - but let's see if this trend continues in the coming weeks.  Average Market Time still considerably high in the North and Northwest Side of Chicago Communities we serve most frequently. Absorption Rate - the theoretical time to clear existing homes-for-sale inventory, again improved.  However, the downward trend in the percentage of homes sel...

Good morning, AR! Man, last night, I didn't feel like I was in Chicago.  Or in the Active Rain Community. I felt like I was in the middle of a partisan love fest in St. Paul MN! A lot of positive comments about the Republican Ticket.  Many rebutting comments, positive ones, for the most part, about the Ticket the Democrats offer. Unfortunately, a lot of disparaging comments as well, hurled across the aisle, from one side to the other.  Yes? But, folks, let's boil all of this stuff down! WHICH TICKET WILL BE THE BEST FRIEND TO U.S. HOUSING MARKET RECOVERY?  McCain and Palin?  Obama and Biden?  Neither - things just have to run their course? Will the election of either ticket make a real difference?  Do things just need to run their course? Or, are more "shots in the arm . . . or ass" . ....
