UPDATED 2019 2018 has been a good year for luxury home sales in the North Shore. In January, two homes sold for $12,000,000 each, both located on Sheridan Road in Winnetka, and a third on the same street sold for $10,000,000. Now I'm from California and I keep a watch on the West Coast prices - t...

UPDATED 2019 A while ago, I wrote a post about old MLS listings and the terms and words that we can't say anymore. In some cases, it's illegal per the Fair Housing Act and in other cases it's unsensitive or unnecessary. For my second round at pouring through old (mostly 1960s) MLS listings, I dis...

 UPDATED 2019 Most residential real estate is sold as an "exclusive right-to-sell" listing.  That means that only one brokerage has signed up with you to list, market, and sell your home. That brokerage acts as your agent and you (the seller) agree to pay a commission to the agency regardless of ...

 Many real estate brokerages have something called a morgue. It's made up of old MLS listing sheets from the 60s and 70s that are typewritten on 5 1/2 x 8 sheets and contain all the basic information about houses for sale. Sometimes they make for interesting reading.  I recently took a Continuing...

UPDATED 2019 There is no lack of homes with 5 or more bedrooms in the North Shore communities of Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Glenview, and Northfield. Much of the new construction has at least five bedrooms plus the older homes were also built larger in the 20s and 30s and we have ma...

I like working with statistics and trying to gauge which way the Winnetka and North Shore real estate market is heading. I run into problems, however, because each village is so small. I could lump all the villages together - Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe and Northfield  - but they are ...

UPDATED 2019 Professionals in many occupations have a tendency to throw around explicit industry terms that leave consumers bewildered.

There were 15 closed home sales in Winnetka in January, 2018.  These homes most likely went under contract during what is considered the slowest time of the market yet some of them are very strong. There were two homes over $2 million, and 4 homes over $3 million including a $10 million sale for...
