Search Orland Park real estateYou can search the entire Northern IL MLS directly from your cell phone.  It’s easy to get the app – just go to the MLS search app page, fill it out, download the app and follow the instructions (you’ll get an ID to fill in).

You’ll be able to search real estate on your phone using the same app agents use.  You can set your search parameters and can even just do a quick search around your current location.  Are you driving past a home and want to know the price now?  Put the address in the app or do a quick location search.  This will save you from making multiple phone calls to many different agents just to get a simple answer.

Happy house hunting!

I am always excited when our real estate board puts up the year-to-date stats for the full year before.  It usually happens sometime in close-up of Orland Park real estate sales statisJanuary and I visit the site every day until those stats are in.

Since many are saying we have already hit bottom, it is very interesting for me to see how real estate sales activity and prices are by comparing them to the prior year.  Of course, it is technically a year behind and we won’t really know how 2013 compares, except on a month-to-month basis (we do get year-to-date figures with each new month), but to me it helps to see how my business is heading.

Here are charts for all real estate sales statistics from 2005-2012 for the two main towns I work in:

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.

A new page has been created for all Orland Park homes for sale on the popular Chicago Suburbs website.  Maybe you want a clean page full of listings.  You don’t want to do a search, you want to see it all.  There is no community information on the page, no community photos, no search box you must use – just one link to create an advanced Orland Park MLS search (if you do decide to drill it down to what you want and need).  Click the link above and you’ll go right to current Orland Park real estate listings.

This is a great page for someone who doesn’t want distractions and just wants to see the homes for sale in Orland Park – right now!  There are price range links you can click to easily separate the listings.  It might seem like fun seeing every listing available, but you might want to see a few in each price range just to compare.  This makes it easy to do.

Happy house hunting!

Two Free Holiday Downloads

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.

Gift wrapped Orland Park homeI’d like to wrap up the year by reviewing Orland Park real estate activity.  As of today, there are currently 233 active Orland Park single family homes for sale.

In fact, one of my newest Orland Park listings is located at 15536 Canterbury.  This is a spacious 5 bedroom 2-story on a quiet street that has a big & beautiful brick related living addition that features vaulted ceilings, a kitchenette, 2 closets and a private bathroom with a walk-in shower.  There is so much more to this home with many possibilities so click the link to get all the details and see all the photos.

What better holiday gift than to buy that special someone a home?  :)  Actually, I have had some busy Decembers so there are buyers out there looking, even during the holidays.

You might be too busy to consider shopping for your next home, so after the holidays are over give Judy or Jimmy a call at 708-536-8200.  We’re always available to answer any questions you might have.
