The single most important factor to consider when selling a house is the price. How much is your house worth in today's local real estate market?
If you are thinking that you should overprice your home and then aggressively negotiate, think again. Overpricing may be the biggest mistake you can make when selling your home. Overpricing leads to a longer listing time and lower selling price.
With 101 million website visitors, our brand strength is unmatched. Our listings are marketed on 950+ websites, including luxury real estate websites. We are the real estate leaders in Chicago and in the nation!

Here are some things the IRS suggests you keep in mind when selling a home. As always, for advice on tax planning and compliance, check with your accountant and/or the Internal Revenue Service for guidance before taking any action.
1. Taxpayers who sell a home may qualify to exclude from their income all or part of any gain from the sale. To claim the income tax exclusion, the homeowner must have owned the home for at least two years, and lived in the home as their main home for at least two years, during a five-year period ending on the date of the sale.
The answer is that housing industry growth is minimal because too few homes are for sale, and rising prices of homes in many markets have made home ownership financially out of reach for many families.
We're pleased to welcome Dennis Schaade to our team of professional REALTORS®!
Dennis became licensed as a real estate Agent in the spring of 2003. He can't believe this coming spring will be 15 years!
He has been around real estate sales since he was a child. His mother is a real estate agent. There are vivid memories of going on some showing appointments with her, which he always looked forward to, and he remembers all the paperwork and files his mom would have on the dining room table.
When faced with a multiple offer situation, expect the unexpected. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to multiple offers in a home sale, and we have seen sellers handle the situation in many different ways. Anything can happen.
A great time was had by all at the Coldwell Banker annual appreciation event for agents and staff at the Shedd Aquarium, where attendees celebrated another year of success with great food, drinks and lively conversation.
Thank you for a great night Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage!
