Chicagoland Housing Market update for September 2016

September 5th, 2016

Here is the Chicagoland Housing Market update for September 2016… The market has remained steady for some time now and continues to be a “Sellers” market… there is currently only 4.1 months worth of inventory, meaning if there was not another home listed, it would take 4.1 months for all the current homes on the market to sell…

In the last month we have had 18,142 homes listed for sell and have had 12,071 homes sold. The average sales price is currently $286,586 for theentire Chicagoland area… and the average days a home is on the market before going under contract is currently 46 days…

If we analyze the last 6 months, prices have steadily increased, but this past month prices dipped a little from July… the good news for Home Sellers is there is a lot of demand for homes and now is a great time to sell if you are looking to get top dollar… For Buyers, yes there are less homes available for sell, however interest rates are as low as we have ever seen so you are able to get more house for your money currently than you have been able to in the past and probably than we will be able to in the future…

I will continue to keep you updated and if you need anything please feel free to call or text me at 773-851-7636 or email me at JohnCastelli@kw.com anytime. Thanks again and have a great day!

Monday Motivation

August 29th, 2016

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!

As always I like to start the week off right with some words of Motivation…

This week I am coming with a powerful quote from Sylvestor Stallone:

“Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”

Stallone

Life is hard, we all get knocked down…. I have yet to meet a successful self made person that has not had some crazy low moments in their life. In those tough moments just keep pushing, never stop, never give you and you will create massive success!

Have an amazing day and week!

CHICAGO IS MY KIND OF TOWN

August 19th, 2016

The Windy City, built on the banks of Lake Michigan and spanning to become one of the largest metropolis areas in the nation, Chicago centers the Midwest as one of the nation’s most iconic and historic cities.

A hub of commerce, finance and entrepreneurism, the diversity of culture reflects the spirit of the city.

The architecture is stunning, but it’s the strong sense of community that make this big city feel like home.

With a deep commitment to education and the arts, home to some of the best sports teams in the country, and with everything from fine dining experiences to deep-dish dive’s, Chicago is a city set apart.

Monday Motivation By Your Realtor John Castelli

August 8th, 2016

Happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend! As always I like to start the week off right with some words of inspiration.

This is a quote for Paulo Coelho that I like to re-reference every time I find myself wanting to take the “Safe” route in life…

“I refuse to walk carefully through life only to arrive safely at death”

MM

So often we choose the safe route in life as that is what we have been conditioned to do but this always leads to an eventual place of regret.

The only failure, is failure to take action on creating the life you know you want and deserve. Regardless of the mistakes you make during the way, as long as you keep pushing hard and never give up, you will end up creating the life you truly want!

Have an amazing weekend and if there is anything you need, please feel free to reach out anytime!
