2019 Chicago Home Partner March Madness

by Amanda on March 11, 2019

What does March mean to you?

March is always a great month for us.  It means longer days, the heat of the Spring Real Estate Market, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and for many of us… the anticipation of March Madness!

This year marks the 11th year hosting our Chicago Home Partner March Madness Pool!  We would like to invite you, and any friends or family that might be interested, to participate in this fun, interactive, and very simple, (for those of us that don’t follow Basketball throughout the year!), online competition.

The rules are simple…

If you have participated before:

If you are new to the pool this year:

  • Go to TourneyTime.com
  • Click “Register Now” in the upper right hand corner and create your free account
  • After logging in, select the ‘Join NCAA Pool’ option.
  • In the search box, enter the pool name, Chicago Home Partner’s Pool and click ‘Search for Pool’.
  • Select the correct pool and click the ‘Select Pool’ button.
  • Enter the pool password, chicago and click the ‘Join Pool’ button.
  • Once you join the pool, you will see your username and an option to MAKE PICKS.
  • On this page it will show you who’s playing who and their record.  Pick your winners and you’re done!

How to sign up as a new user for the CHP March Madness Pool:

ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY TIP-OFF ON TUESDAY, MARCH 19th and don’t forget to “talk some trash” over on our Facebook page!

The website will automatically update with your progress, the winners, the losers and who’s leading.  We have even added “Bonus Points” this year for biggest upsets, most correct picks and more.  And since all competitions are better with CASH involved, we will award the overall winner with a $50.00 Amex Gift Card! Nothing like a little competitive spirit!

Whether you live in Lincoln Park, Wicker Park or Hyde Park… everyone enjoys a little competition.  Good luck to everyone and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have!

As Chicago real estate market experts, we take immense pride in releasing our 8th annual “Chicago Real Estate Roundup”, where we discuss the year in review and explain our predictions for the year to come. Our predictions for 2018 and results are listed below.

Our 2018 predictions were spot on with the exception of “seller realism” over property pricing. Many non-CHP sellers lacked the guidance or market insight and overpriced their homes in an extremely competitive market. Where buyers flat-out refused to overpay, sellers and agents continued to test the market – resulting in a 16% increase of expired, (failed), listings for 2018.

Conversely, Chicago Home Partner listings sold quickly, and at nearly full price, while our buyers secured homes at or below market value.   With over 135 transactions representing $53 million in closed sales, we are humbled by the success that was only possible by you, our most valuable asset, and the trust you place in us.

We hope you enjoy the report and please feel free to reach out to us with ANY questions you might have!
