Are you asking why so much? It is a very nice home, and from the looks of it, located in a safe, well managed neighborhood.

Rodolfo De Hoyos,
Currnet estimated value is between $36,000 and $71,000 but an actual market analysis including a property inspection by an agent would be required to help you determine the actual current market value. The last sale of this property was for $4,350 on 12/22/12. Hope this helps.

All the best,

Great question, many sellers today are facing the same type of situations and searching for answers. Although selling your house outright has many advantages and often may be a good option for you to consider. Another option for you to consider is Leasing your home with the Option to Buy which is called a Lease Option or Rent To Own. Here is the facts, majority of home buyers today cannot qualify to purchase your home which limits your buyers list drastically. By learning more about the benefits of Lease Option you will be able to make a informed decision about your home. My company helps educate people about their often overlooked option when selling their house which opens up your buyers list to approximately 83% of the population. I'd be happy to send you free brochure giving you the pros and cons on the 8 different options you should consider when selling your home in a tough real estate market by emailing me ... more

Does your townhome community allow you to rent your property? From your comments it appears you have some equity in your townhome. If you are able to buy without the sale of your property then maybe you'll be able to hold out and sell when your market value in Woodstock improves.

If you would like to discuss some strategies, call or text me at 224-805-2616 to schedule an appointment.

Consider Fairfax County, Virginia. As Realtors, we can't comment specifically on "good schools," since there's a lot of subjectivity involved. However, you can check the County's schools out on County&st=public or the County's Web site at

There are a number of areas in Fairfax County with lake-front properties. You might especially consider the Burke area, as well as Reston. There's also Lake Barcroft. Naturally, I'd be glad to send you listings of available properties in those areas.

Hope that helps.

Hi, the ask to sell ratio has change over the last year. Much of this depends on where the home is priced. A home the is priced extremly well will sell quickly and many chances very close to asking (95%+).
I personally live in Algonquin, just a subdivision over from the Coves. I would be happy to help you gather any information you may need or help you determine if this is the area you are most interested in.
In addition, I have a great tool on my website, Market Snapshot. You can get free montly market updates and it will include recent solds, actives as well as other information such as Community and School information.
Feel free to visit anytime, it takes less than 2 seconds to fill out the form and you can have the report in minutes. Also, don't hesitate to call or email me anytime, I would be happy to help you find a great home in the Algonquin and surrounding areas.

Meems answered:
We are both a buyer and seller. Keep in mind that almost every buyer who makes an offer has had to (or will need to) accept a SIGNIFICANT loss on their previous/current home.

If you can't compete with foreclosures best not to get into the market right now. Regardless of what a realtor might tell you... it's foreclosure properties that are selling. ... more

There is a foreclosure in your area right now that would be a perfect opportunity. The property is in fairly decent condition-justs needs some cleaning, painting, carpet and scraping. This house should give you some pretty good returns. If you are interested--drop me a line or give me a call.

Renee Pflanz answered:
I believe it would be better to sell the property in question. Here's why... you would have the most expensive (and probably most beautiful) home in the neighborhood. That's always something buyers need to consider when buying a home. You don't always want to be the biggest or best in a neighborhood because the average home price will always be lower than yours. If a future buyer (of the home) would see the value and not mind paying the higher price for a newer and updated home, well that's a chance you will have to take. However, if you feel like you will stay in the home yourself for 10 years or longer and make some natural appreciation on it with a lower neighborhood value, then it might be worth your while. In addition you state that it will cost you $270,000 to build, is that in todays lower contractor prices to build or are you taking previous years costs. One last thought, would a buyer want to buy a custom built home in a non-custom built neighborhood? Something to think about. Hope this has helped you out. I am glad to try and assist you on this difficult decision. ... more

You really should contact a local agent to discuss the way this works in Illinois. it is different in every state. also your agent can explore properties which offer this option.
