Number of Closings in Western Springs in past 12 months

In the past 12 months there have been 107 reported closings through the Multiple Listing Service of Northern Illinois. Of those 107 sales in Western Springs 9 were either short sales, foreclosures or court ordered. That equals approx. 1/12th of all the homes that closed. In comparison to other areas that does not seem bad to me, however, in comparison to the 32 years that I have been a realtor in this town it is unheard of. Times have changed and I change with them. If you are thinking of selling in the coming year please allow me a chance to come talk to you about marketing your home. Linda Hanley Kelly, Charles Rutenberg Realty, 708-334-5356
