A quick update on the Chicagoland real estate market in Q1 2023.

One question I get asked frequently is: “How’s the market so far in 2023?” Overall, the Chicagoland market is still a strong seller’s market. The one exception is the condo market, which is more balanced since its inventory has increased. However, the single-family home market in the western, northern, and southern suburbs is still a seller’s market. Plus, interest rates are still good, creating urgency among buyers. 

If you are planning to sell your home, you may want to consider creating a to-do list or a checklist of how to invest your money wisely and run it by me or another top agent  to make sure you get top dollar for your property. It's important to make sure you are investing in things that will help your home sell faster and for more money. If you need a second opinion on something, don't hesitate to reach out to a real estate professional for advice. 

For buyers, I have some exciting news: I can help you find off-market properties that are not listed on the MLS yet. Here is the direct link to get access to homes BEFORE they hit the open market. 

If you're interested in learning more about this service or if you have any other questions, please reach out to me by phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
