Why You Should List Your Home the Day After the Super Bowl (Source: Pixabay,com - used as royalty free image)

There’s no bigger game than The Big Game, is there? (Yes, we are allowed to say Super Bowl, as it turns out.) All of your friends and family gathered around the TV, yelling at football players, laughing at a fresh batch of Doritos commercials, chowing down on – statistically speaking – four buffalo wings per person? It’s the best!

And there’s another reason why our team here at Real Group marks the Super Bowl on our calendars every year: For real estate pros, it’s a big deal. And if you want to sell your home, we suggest you pay attention to the Super Bowl too; in our experience, the day after the big game is a magical time for home listings.

What makes it so special? You see, the Super Bowl, held in early February, marks the start of the spring season for real estate. While we’d argue that there are some strategic upsides to selling in the winter, there can be no denying that it’s the slowest period of the year, for buyers and sellers alike. For buyers, there are fewer listings on the market to choose from; for sellers, the unpleasant weather, the busy holiday rush, and the dearth of options means that fewer people will be looking to buy at all.

Why Lincoln Park?

We've got two words for you: "Free Zoo." 

Lincoln Park is home to one of the country's last free zoos, meaning that your neighbors would be actual party animals. But if a sweet sloth and its friends aren't enough to draw you to the neighborhood, there are lots of other perks to living in Lincoln Park. It offers institutions devoted to preserving Chicago's history and culture, including the Lincoln Park Conservatory, the Chicago History Museum, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. 

And, if you're hungry, there are a ton of diverse dining spots, along with plenty of beloved old school mainstays (the Wiener's Circle, anybody?).

Located on the northwest side of Chicago, Jefferson Park is one of the city’s 77 designated community areas. It is bordered by nearby Norwood Park and Forest Glen, and is located directly north of 
Portage Park.

Originally founded as a settlement for traders, hunters, and farmers, Jefferson Park was annexed by the city of Chicago all the way back in 1889. Today, you can still feel the history in this quiet, residential-focused community. Poke around Jefferson Park, and you won’t only find lovely homes, tasty restaurants, and top-notch parks and green spaces - you’ll find a stunning old movie palace-turned-cultural center.
