Following real estate transfers in Waukegan Pt. 2
I had a topic going on waukegan org. about real estate transfers in Waukegan. If I ever retire (looks doubtful after I saw my investment statements yesterday... Confusedhock: ) I would like to go into real estate. Glad to see you here immigrant daughter -I may ask to pick your brain again. :geek: Last week there were 7 listings. This week there are 14 -from around September 4th. I see James Onan has bought another property. Still can't get over some of the low prices.

Just as an FYI, this morning's national news is saying one in six Americans owe more than their house is currently worth-

how frightening is that? Not sure we will not lose money on our house, looking at what homes are going for in Waukegan,

but, this is scary stuff. (We just got our investment statements, too :oops: )
(scenerio) You ONCE owned a $150K house last year, this year that same house is only worth (about) $110K to $120K. Your now 30 to 40K in further the hole. One of my prominant customers paid $360K for their house 3 years ago. This year, after rechecking with their Real Estate agent, that same house is only worth $245K. That's about 33% drop!!! It didn't matter that the house is in a well to do area, they were hit hard.

As I watch the "How to do" shows on TV and talk with other home contractors in our area, a vast majority of people do owe more than their house is worth. This unexpected loss happened when the housing industry/real estate values plummeted last year.

We remortgaged last year to take advantage of lower interest rates and some for home improvements but insisted on keeping a % of the equity in the bank. That saved equity is what's keeping our heads above water. One has to live & learn from others mistakes and misfortunes when talking to others and about whatever just so stay ahead of a game.

AND it sure didn't help with OIL/GAS prices jumping and staying high. Oil is currently about $80 a bbl, gas should be about $2.20 gallon. That includes the NORMAL cost of living increase. It's going to be tuff for everyone to recoup from this Oil industry shot. Many savings account were depleated. Others dipped in their retirement funds or cashed in some CD's & took the loss. Hence the stock market drop.
Twenty listings for a month ago. That's the most I've seen in a long time. Looks like someone bought the Marsh Funeral Home on Washington.

The two on Counrty Club may look high...but they are both only 2 -3 years old and had sold for close to $300 the first time around. The recent buyers of the homes got great deals!
Where is Country Club? I'm not familiar with it.
Country Club is on the north side. To reach these two home take Sunset East from GreenBay to Frolic. Go South on Frolic to Counrty CLub and turn Right.
