How a Shortage of Homes for Sale in Chicago Benefits You

Look through the Chicago real estate listings and you'll find pockets of homes that are old and battered down, a handful of over-priced houses in undesirable neighborhoods, and if you're lucky, a few houses that you feel okay about. But when you're looking to buy your forever home, you're not looking for a home that makes you feel “okay.” You want a spectacular home that makes you feel great every time you walk through the door - it's what you and your family deserve.

On the surface, it appears the Chicago housing market looks bleak. Because of this, many people are opting to hold onto their homes instead of selling them. While this might not seem to be in your favor, the truth is, this market actually works to your benefit – in a different way than you'd expect.

You Can Get the Home You Want

How a Shortage of Homes for Sale in Chicago Benefits You

Instead of buying someone else's home – a home rife with flaws that you'll never be able to fix, you can take advantage of the current market and choose to build your new home at an affordable price. Imagine getting exactly what you want – the open kitchen, the office overlooking the park, and the master bedroom with the walk-in closet. When you're building a home in Chicago, you don't have to settle for what you see in the listings. You're in control. You can guarantee that your next home is the forever home you always wanted.

Your Home Is What Makes You Happy

When you build an environmentally friendly home with BrightLeaf, not only will you save money on future utilities, but you'll tell the world – and yourself – that you truly care about the environmentConsidering many Chicago homes for sale are well behind the current building code, you'll spend extra money on utilities, pay to fix problems you didn't cause, and deal with the associated stress that these problems may cause.

You'll love being home.
