The Chicago Loop

What I saw yesterday in the ever changing loop. New condo sales have just about stopped so the loop needs to keep people active before it turns into a wasteland. 628 homes sold this past qtr is a far cry from 4500 just a fue years ago.

Still on the market

This home has seen a revival once on the market in early 2004 and recreated and available again now at 685,000. Trouble is where are all the buyers? Looks as it has been on the market for more then 300 days.
With 4 Bedrooms and 3.5 baths and empty you might let your next group of vampires move in They will not need a refrigerator or dishwasher. keep looking for that new buyer.

The Cubs can't help

With a quick look at the listing services their are 106 listing with a reference to Wrigley Field. The standard photo below...must have been taken from the 40Th floor of the some high rise 6 blocks away and not from across the street. Do the cubies in first place help you move your digs. I don't know because of the 106 homes for sale the average sold time is 162 days. The Realtors will have to keep working on that one.

"ready to show"

The client called and said the house was "ready to show". I felt something was a miss and went to check before I had any buyers ready. THIS is what I found!! Truly in a slow market clean is an understatement homes need to be immaculate. I sent a crew over and a DUMPSTER, this house was full of junk. Now its sold....we are off to the next one.
