Is the market value of your Riverwoods house upside-down? Are you facing financial difficulties? Does it look like you could lose your home to foreclosure? You’re not alone. Crain’s Chicago Business recently reported that it takes banks nearly 500 days to process an Illinois foreclosure. This may give you nearly a year-and-a-half to sell your house as a Short Sale. But don’t get too complacent. A Short Sale can take 6 months or longer to process through your bank. Meanwhile, your bank could foreclose on your home in less than a year. The long and the short Maybe you haven’t heard about Short Sales. Or maybe you have but also heard that they don’t work. Untrue. Short Sales are different from regular sales and must be handled in a different way. But when handled properly, they can close o...

If you think you don’t have to worry about selling your Riverwoods home and moving on when the need arises, think again. Every day means your house is losing value. That’s right. Every single day. Face value  Overall, economic and market forces continue to plague the real estate marketplace, and will for some time to come. One of those market forces has to do foreclosures and short sales. Short end of the stick Over the past year, 31% of all single-family detached homes sold in Riverwoods were ‘distressed’ homes ... either foreclosures or short sales. Digest this for a moment.  1 out of 3 homes sold in Riverwoods during the last 12 months was a ‘distressed’ home. A ‘distressed’ home is one in which the homeowners experienced some kind of financial crisis. Either they lost their home to ...

Riverwoods has received the title of Tree City USA and the people of Riverwoods want to keep it that way. This past Wednesday evening I attended a meeting at the Riverwoods Village Hall (a log cabin in the woods) where the new Riverwoods reforestation program was presented.  The Village of Riverwoods will give matching funds for removal of invasive plants like buckthorn and garlic mustard as well as matching funds for young trees and seedlings to be planted when the invasives are removed. To arborists and plant experts spoke about the type of trees that are native to our area.  The Village Forester, Chuck Stewart also explained the program and will be on call one morning every other week to answer any tree related questions from Riverwoods residents and will also walk a resident's prope...

Once again the entire Village of Riverwoods worked to create the biggest and best Halloween Party ever.  This year almost 1000 people turned out for the festivities.  The fact that it was the Saturday before Halloween and the weather was beautiful really helped.  As the Mayor's wife, I was in charge of the party and people actually called and asked if they could help.  This was the nineth year the Village Hall has been covered with spiders, ghosts and witches.  Our sponsors bear almost the entire cost of the party and provide free hot dogs, pizza, cider, candy and smores which are prepared around the bonfire.  The only expense to the Village is the horse drawn haywagon.  Bob Gand of The Village Music Store in  Deerfield rides the haywagon and sings and plays the banjo.  Jodygigglejam pl...

In these difficult times it's more important than ever to say thank you to our past and present clients. Over 50 of our past and present clients attended. We told them that we are revising our business plan and are getting new clients largely by referral from past and present clients and asked them if they overheard friends or family talking about buying or selling real estate to tell them about us and ask if we might call them.  Then we asked them to give us a call with the person's name and number.   Everyone who attended said they had a great time.  We had chicken, brots, pasta, sausages and peppers, ice cream cakes, blueberry pie and all kinds of yummy treats.  We even had a bouncy castle for the children.  It was great fun and we will do it again next year.    Sincerely,   Sherry H...

I recently returned from Las Vegas, NV where I attended ProAct, 6 days of classes that will enable me to get my Certified Real Estate Specialist (CRS) designation.  The classes were from 8:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. each day.  It was a grueling but extremely rewarding learning opportunity.  The class I found the most beneficial was the class I was most worried about, "Financing and Tax Advantages For Agents and Their Clients", taught by Dale Carlton.  I told him the first day of the class that I had to take off my shoes to count to 20 and asked if I would fail.  By the end of the 2 days I was using a financial calculator and calculating mortgage rates, interest rates and unpaid balances on mortgages. One of the most valuable things I learned was the 90 day rule that if you pay cash for a prop...

As the wife of the Mayor of Riverwoods one of the most fun things I get to do each year is organize the annual halloween party.  This year Riverwoods held its eighth annual Halloween Party at the Riverwoods Village hall.  There was a horse drawn hay wagon, free Pizza, free hotdogs, hot cider, popcorn and candy which made it a truly fun event.  There was also a huge bon fire to gather around and make s'mores. It is truly a village event.  This year at least 10 people helped with the amazing decorations.  Since the Village hall is a log cabin it really lends itself to the Halloween theme.  In addition, there were another 15-20 people who helped serve all the food. We can have as many as 200-300 people attending. We even had music and singing on the hay wagon and Jodi jiggle jam played the...

On October 4th Riverwoods celebrated its 50th year as being founded as a Village.  It was a golden day for the golden anniversary of the Village.  There were hotdogs, brots & ribs and photoboards showing the Village 50 years ago.  The attendance wasn't quite what was expected, but the Bears were playing football at the same time and that is really tough competition. We had asked for new coverage of the event. My husband, Bill, is the Mayor.  Instead all we got was a photographer who took a picture of an adorable toddler and our dog Zoey.  Well hopefully that toddler will be there 50 years from now to celebrate the 100th year of the Village. Riverwoods is really a beautiful place to live especially in the fall when the trees turn yellow and red.   Sincerely,   Sherry H. Kaplan

On October 4th Riverwoods will be celebrating its 50th anniversary for the founding of the Village.  We are having a huge barbecue, a big band playing and hopefully tales of the history of the Village.  Stories of the days when Riverwoods was simply a community of summer cottages for the wealthy residents of Winnetka.  When there was an amusement park on the corner of Deerfield and Milwaukee Avenue, When a bunch of farmers got together at the Hermann Wildflower Farm on the corner of Deerfield and Portwine and named the streets after their favorite drink ie:  Portwine & Sherry.  In the old days there were small rattlesnakes all along the  Des Plaines River which are long gone today.  We still have our horses and hopefully some of them will be at the celebration.  We will try to show a vi...
