When it comes to selling a home, there is one detail that everyone wants to get right – and which everyone else seems to want to weigh in on: List Price.

Finding the right price for your home is an important step on the road to a successful sale, and everyone is looking for that “magic number” – the one that will yield maximum profit, a quick turnaround time, and minimal stress.

Of course, finding that perfect price is easier said than done, and plenty of the so-called advice you’ll hear is actually just hot air… which could end up doing your sale more harm than good.

It’s time to get to the bottom of things! Want to successfully sell your home for the best possible price? Be wary of these all-too-common home pricing myths:

“Green” is more than a buzzword. In today’s real estate market, buyers, sellers, and homeowners are thinking about sustainability and green design choices more than ever before. 

If you’re among the countless Chicago homeowners or sellers who have made the decision to transform your home to be more environmentally friendly, it’s important to consider everything that comes next. You’re ready to make your home more green - now, it’s time to nail down the concrete steps you can take to move your property in the right direction. 

You may choose to focus on smaller fixes inside and outside of the house, or strive for the larger-scale green renovations that can dramatically minimize the carbon footprint of your home. Either way, you’re making big strides to bring your property into the future, which could help lower your bills, make your home more livable, and also make a dramatic difference when it’s time to sell. 

As you search for homes around Chicagoland, you’re bound to find some layouts that excite and inspire - and some that leave you scratching your head.

Our city is full of all kinds of structures, some with more space than you may actually need, and some that are cozier than you might think possible. In other cases, a space could come with an architectural flourish that adds extra dimensions or square footage to the home. In other cases, spare space could come in the form of a basement, an attic, a loft space, or even a bedroom you don’t actually need.

If you’re in the market for a home, or you’re a current homeowner getting ready to stage and sell, you may have some of these extra spaces and bonus rooms on your mind.

As a seller getting your home ready to go to market, you may find yourself wanting to talk with your broker or a design professional about how to stage or highlight a bonus room or flexible space. For buyers, even if you’ve combed through design and decor blogs for room ideas, the idea of a bonus area or flex space may leave you feeling a bit flustered.

It’s awesome you have the extra space, after all, but now comes the question: What to do with it?
