This Week in Real Estate: Mergers, Día de los Muertos, MIT Housing, and Wrigley Movie Viewing

by Chicago Agent

A sales incentive involving food and beer was one of the more interesting Tweets for this week.

Consumption was big in This Week In Real Estate, as we saw stories involving a merger of two local Realtor associations, better-than-expected home sales and the first movie showing in Wrigley.

Mergers, Sales and Día de los Muertos

MORe merged with the RANWC, resulting in the largest Realtor association in Illinois and the fourth largest in the nation; the National Association of Realtors had suggestions for REO properties; Día de los Muertos may come 30 days early, as Oct. 1 is the set date for govt. loan increases to end; and home sale increases were even better than expected.

MIT Housing, Genius Grant, and Bueller

Lighting up the Twitter-nation this week: local architect Jeanne Gang received a MacArthur genius grant; MIT, as part of a competition, developed a compelling template for a house that would cost a measly $1,000; Wrigley is set to become the most interesting movie theater in Chicago; and finally, Chicago Realtor Missy Jerfita has offered one of the more unique incentives for buying a house: $1,000 in beer and food from nearby Grandpa’s Place.

The Latest Issue

This week was an off-week for the print publication of Chicago Agent, but we’ll be back on Monday with our new issue, “50 Ways Agents Fail Their Clients.”
