This home was only on the market for 305 days and immediately prior to that 415 days. The final asking price on this home was $1,565,000 and it sold at $1,440,000, representing 92% of asking price. Marketing started in 2011 at $1,699,999 and prior to that in 2009 the home was listed for $2,300,000.
Financing was a conventional loan which shows that loans are available in the higher levels, but of course credit scores needs to be good and a deposit of at least 20% is desired. Jumbo loans and super jumbo loans require a lot of due diligence by buyers and loan officers to make sure loans are approved. This is where a dedicated and experienced loan officer is critical.
It’s therefore easy to confirm that the luxury real estate market in Barrington can still be described as soft.
South Barrington appeals to buyers as the primary area of luxury homes close to I-90. Commuting to Chicago from this village is about as easy as can be from suburbs to city, when you are only minutes from the tollway.
