Hi starting from scratch,
It is not unusual in these times for a home to be on the mkt for over 6mos. Maybe you can send me some more information on the areas of these towns you are looking in.What exactly r you considering "high end"? Both are very, very nice suburbs, but there might be some more that may be of interest as well? Deerfield? Are you relocating from New York? I am a native New Yorker myself. Long Island.
If you would like some more specific information pls feel free to call or e-mail me. You can reach me directly at 847-277-8415. And thanks for your question.
