Below is a link to an update market report for the Gold Coast area. Overall, homes are taking an average of 48 days to sell. If I knew the specifics of your property, I could do some more research to determine average market time for you. ... more

Hi Mocha, once you have exhausted all your choices with your current Realtor and his/her brokerage company and decide to cancel your listing agreement anyway, you can relist with another real estate brokerage and their agent right away. If you want to put the house on the market on your own, then you must read your listing agreement with your current brokerage company carefully as there is a protection period included I am sure, that if selling to anyone who has been shown the property during the listing period with your current brokerage company - you may for a certain period of time have to pay a commission. Just double check and if in doubt have your Attorney have a quick look.

Good luck to you and I hope that you will be successful in selling your home. Remember this is a difficult market for sellers, as we are in a buyers market, more properties available then there are ready and willing and approved buyers available. So the buyers can cherry pick and properties are longer on the market than ever before unless they are priced very low, priced to sell!!!!

sincerely yours,
Edith Your Chicago and North shore Expert - YourRealtor4Life!

Hi Shannie,

The average days on market for a home in Lake Forest is 254 days. I can give you a more specific number if you can give me a range in price. Some price ranges are moving faster than other price ranges. The name of the game in this market is proper pricing. Pricing your home correctly will lower your marketing time and will put more money in your pocket. at the end of the day. I would be happy to answer any questions you have about the Lake Forest market and questions specific to your needs. When you are considering interviewing agents do not be afraid to ask them what their average days on marketing time has been. My average days on market has been 23 days and I have been selling homes at almost 95% of list price. That is 96% higher than most agents on the North Shore. Please give me a call at 847-343-4069.
