UPDATED 2019 Professionals in many occupations have a tendency to throw around explicit industry terms that leave consumers bewildered. While many people have heard of real estate related words, few really understand what they fully mean. When you're anywhere in the process of buying or selling r...

There were two homes over $2 million, and 4 homes over $3 million including a $10 million sale for...

 UPDATED 2020While we have ample supply of single family homes, there has been a long-time shortage of condos and townhouses that has plagued the North Shore  (with the exception of Glenview and Evanston.)  Even Wilmette, the one village that has a good number of condo developments, is running lo...

No doubt that the biggest real estate news of 2018 will be the new federal tax legislation. We can all agree that big changes are coming - particularly for certain segments of the market - including our North Shore. Will 2018 be a good year to sell your house? If you were planning to sell your ho...

UPDATED 2019 You're planning to sell your home soon and you know there are overdue repairs that need to be attended to. Those nagging things that you've always lived with and tolerated but just didn't bother to take care of. Things like crooked doors, wall or tile cracks, drippy faucets, drafty o...

 As life gets more frenetic with the upcoming holidays, the real estate market tends to simmer on the back burner. We've still had new listings (it's not a bad time to list your home for sale!) and sales, but as expected, not at the robust pace like springtime. Here's a rundown of real estate hap...

UPDATED 2019 What is "brown" furniture? One of the best lines I've read this year is from an article by Richard Eisenberg for Next Avenue: "Dining room tables and chairs, end tables and armoires, (brown pieces) have become furniture non grata. Antiques are antiquated." I know my two millennial ag...

UPDATED 2019 It's a question I get all the time. I'd like to say the best time to sell is when you are ready! But if one is interested in the statistics regarding the timing of selling a home, then there are some things to consider. In Chicago's North Shore communities of Winnetka, Wilmette, Keni...

What is the median price of a Winnetka and North Shore home today? Homes in the communities that hug Lake Michigan are generally priced higher than those farther out - true, I think, of anyplace where there is a body of water. The North Shore communites that I primarily represent include Wilmette...

It hasn't even passed yet, but many are weighing in on whether it would help or hinder the real estate market. The key takeaways of the bill as they relate to real estate are: a $10,000 cap on the deduction of property taxes lowering of the the mortgage interest deduction cap from $1 million to $...

The North Shore communities of Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, and Northfield don't have new home subdivisions being built. That has not happened in a long time because the North Shore is wedged between Lake Michigan and the Cook County forest preserves - meaning all the land has alread...
