Dawn Dause Review

Check out this wonderful review for Dawn!

Dawn Dause Group logo for an article about a recent Dawn Dause review.

We have used Dawn to purchase 2 homes now and to sell 1 over the last 5 years. Lots of moving and stress and Dawn was huge in helping us through it all. She has amazing local knowledge and contacts and is unbelievably responsive no matter what time day or night we contacted her. She made the process entirely enjoyable and always kept her word/promise which is very rare these days. We’ve recommended her to family and friends and I believe if you want an honest up front realtor in the area your not going to find anyone better than Dawn!!

Why Is Autumn A Good Time To Buy?

Why is autumn a good time to buy? Many people think spring or summer are the best times for real estate but that’s not always true! Check out these reasons you should be shopping for a home in the fall!

  • Less competition: Less buyers in the real estate market during the fall months means that the buyers that are home shopping are less likely to enter into a bidding war. Even though there are less homes on the market to choose from, buyers can find great deals if they are patient.
  • Lower prices: Statistically, October is the best month to purchase a home because buyers are likely to pay less than market value during this time.  Just for comparison, the month of April is the best time for sellers since buyers pay an estimated 1.2% above market value according to RealtyTrac.
  • Tax credits: Closing on a home at the end of the fiscal year can reap some great benefits come the following April. These benefits are in the form of tax deductions; home owners may be able to deduct mortgage interest, property taxes and closing costs.
  • Home improvement deals: When many home buyers move into their new digs, they often times want to start making improvements to the home such as investing in new appliances. December offers the best deals on appliances according to Consumer Reports and it’s also a great time to purchase televisions as well.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Shorewood, IL.
Local knowledge: Five stars
Process expertise: Five stars
Responsiveness: Five stars
Negotiation skills: Five stars
We chose Dawn after having our home on the market with another realtor for 9 months with no offers. Dawn sold our home in 2 1/2 weeks! Dawn’s marketing strategies are outstanding and I’m sure this helped get our home sold. Dawn has great communication skills and kept us “looped in” with everything that was going on with our home. We highly recommend Dawn Dause if you are looking for a realtor that is motivated and in touch with the market as well as always keeping her client at the center of the transaction!
