Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : February 2010

"IT WASN'T MEANT TO BE..."

"It wasn't meant to be," said my client this afternoon shortly before we hung up the phone...

He called to see a new listing here in Naperville.  A cute Cape Cod in Naperville's Historic District.  It was new to the market...

The home had come under contract after just two days.

"It wasn't meant to be," emailed a different customer this afternoon.  We had seen a beautiful home in Elmhurst this morning.  New construction.  Quiet street.  Close to work...

The home already had three offers and the sellers had accepted one.

"It wasn't meant to be," said another customer the other day...

We had just been outbid on a home in Clarendon Hills.  A gorgeous property.  Our offer wasn't good enough.

It wasn't meant to be? 

I am hearing it a lot lately...

The real estate market is heating up.
