PetitionSSAs a member of Short Sale Superstars, I have been alerted to a disturbing trend with Fannie Mae and their short sales.  They are expecting prices so high for their short sale listings that in many cases it is above true market value.  There is a petition online that we’re asking people to sign.  Please click the link to get more information about  the Fannie Mae petition.

It takes time and effort to sell a short sale listing.  Many buyers won’t even look at them because they’ve heard it can take months and months to get an answer and even then the transaction might not make it to closing.  Now Fannie Mae is making it that much more difficult by expecting prices higher than Broker Price Opinions (BPO’s) show.  Fannie Mae needs to be more accountable for setting such unrealistic price expectations.

Two Free Holiday Downloads

Posted by: | Comments (0)

I’d like to offer a couple of free items given with holiday spirit in mind.  The first item is a great app for your smart phone or iPad.  The 2nd is a pdf download about entertaining for the holidays.

Search the MLS for Free on Your Phone or iPad

No longer do you need to call your agent or a listing brokerage to get information on a home for sale.  Just look it up on your very own MLS app provided by Judy Orr and MRED, which supplies the Multiple Listing Service for all of northern IL, including border towns of Indiana and Wisconsin.  I think the greatest feature is that the app can quickly show you all listings for sale near where you are.  You can allow it to search them all or put your price range and other parameters in to drill it down.  Click the “MLS app” link above to get the download information sent to your e-mail.  Then open your e-mail on your phone or iPad and follow the instructions, including putting in my agent code.  Happy home searching!

Get Your Free Holiday Entertaining Guide

Orland Park real estate holiday entertaining guide

This is a simple pdf file that you can download and save forever.  There is no tracking involved and you are under no obligation and will not be bothered – I don’t even know who downloads it.  It offers tips and recipes.  This is provided by Judy Orr and James Herter in conjunction with Homes.com and Rent.com.  Click Holiday Entertaining Guide to get to the download page.

Here’s hoping safe and happy holidays to you and your family.  If you’re interested in Orland Park homes or any other southwest suburb, give Judy a call at 708-536-8200.

Springing Forward and Real Estate

Posted by: | Comments (0)

spring for Homer Glen real estate

I hope no one forgot to set their clocks an hour ahead over the weekend.  I remember (almost 3 decades ago) hating having to do that when I worked a regular 9-5 job.  I hated the upcoming Monday, which is when I figured I truly lost that hour of sleep.  Monday’s are a little different as a real estate broker.  I work mainly from my home unless I have appointments or have to run to the main office for something.  I have no morning appointments today so I don’t feel I missed any sleep, but the reality is I couldn’t fall asleep last night so I didn’t get in the normal amount of zzzzz’s that I’m used to – but I can’t blame daylight savings for that.

What I do like about springing forward in real estate is that when I have later showings, like the appointment I’m waiting to get confirmed for tonight at 5:00, is that it won’t be pitch black while I’m driving around trying to find an address.  Seems like when I first started showing real estate most of my appointments were evenings and weekends.  While I still get some evening appointments, I show a lot of properties during the day.

If you’re interested in Orland Park or Homer Glen homes, or the surrounding suburbs, give me a call at 708-536-8200.  I am available day or night, and now we have a little more “night.”
