2012 has come to an end – what will 2013 bring? As an active REALTOR I think that 2012 was very active throughout Chicago’s North Shore – values of homes continue to inch up and the mortgage rates are still very low which is a great indicator that 2013 will be a very good year for Real Estate.

If you are planning on selling your home in 2013 call me for a comparative market evaluation of your residence. Some important tips to keep in mind: 1. List to sell – your house will need to shine within its price bracket. 2. List with a real estate agent who provides you with a marketing plan- know what kind of marketing and exposure your home will receive. 3. De-clutter – get rid of things that you do not plan on taking with you – donate, have a garage sale or sell on eBay.
