You’re looking to buy. You’re looking to sell. Whichever end of the real estate market you’re on, you’ll likely notice the renovated, updated, and staged homes in your neighborhood sell quickly, and the ones with nineties countertops and cabinets… take a bit longer. Should you find renovations a necessity, Broker Matt Engle of Fulton Grace shares his best advice for updating your home.
Fall is upon us, even though Chicago has had some strange, 70-degree days sprinkled in the last few weeks. Instead of hibernating in your apartment and watching Hocus Pocus or the original Halloween on repeat, we have a few ideas for where you can chill when the weather is a bit chilly.
Over improving is tempting, as sellers often assume it will automatically increase their home value and place them far above other properties in the area. Is this true? Find out in this week’s blog, as broker CK Cole of Fulton Grace’s Lighthouse Group shares her thoughts and tips regarding where to look when improving your home.

You’ve probably had this debate in your own mind many times: should I rent, or should I buy? For the most part, each option is based on a person’s individual situation. But hearing the reasons for why each could benefit you (or not) may help steer you in the right direction.
MORE festivals? Yep, you guessed it! August has plenty of fest options for Chicagoans to experience, and we have the only list you need in deciding which to attend. Prepare your weekends… there’s something for everyone!
We’re here to set the record straight!
Do you always intend to clean up your balcony (or patio) and finally enjoy a cup of coffee during the early mornings of summer, but just haven’t gotten around to it yet? You’re not alone.

If you’re already a little lost with all the options, don’t fear! We’ll give you the lowdown on the Chicago neighborhoods that fit what you’re looking for.
As temperatures rise over 80 degrees and humidity percentages make you feel like you’re walking through a sauna, you may find yourself wanting to submerge completely in some cold lake water. No judgment, since we conveniently have Lake Michigan nearby to jump into! Pack up your beach bag and load up on the sunscreen, because a beach weekend in Chicago doesn’t mess around.
Ah, spring and summer in the Chi.
