I am not aware that an Auction has anything to do with a Court. An Auction is just an alternative means of selling R E rather than using the MLS. Courts have nothing to do with it. The Seller....REO bank.......must have clear title in order to sell something whether it is via the MLS or an Auction. As long as the Seller has proper title, not sure why a court would get involved.... more

The studios in LP and downtown are actually doing very well because people are downsizing but don't want to sacrifice location. You'll do much better buying a studio in LP than buying so far out north. Studios and 1 bedrooms in the best areas will also be the first thing to come back so you'll come out ahead on the back end too. You'd be surprised these days too with prices in LP. I have a client looking at beatiful 1 bedrooms with parking for well under $250,000. I'd be happy to show you what's on the market with a simple search you can check out at your convenience. If you're interested give me a call at (847) 894-5773 or email firstname.lastname@example.org... more
There are a lot of agents that fall into this area. You will get a lot of answers on this. Interview two or three of these agents, and go with the one you mesh best with. I know a lot about these properties, and I would be happy to be considered.

You will get plenty of responses from lenders here, but basicly most of the large banks, who ONLY do Fannie/Freddie loans will not lend in your building. However there are many smaller banks that 'portfolio' their loans who will make loans. FHA only requires 51% owner occupancy and many condo buildings like yours are becoming FHA approved to increase the potential for buyers to be interested in their building. It does not cost anything to get approved and the process is much less burdensome than it was a few years ago. I can give you more info if your interested. I just took a listing @ 607 Wrightwood whose owner occupancy is about 40% and it will be very difficult to find lenders willing to lend in it.
If for some odd reason you do not get any lender responses here my web site has a few references to check with.... more

Hello Dawn & thanks for contacting me.
Having windows that don't open in a residential living unit on a first floor bedroom like an apartment is usually not common, except is some highrise buildings. I am not an attorney so I don't want to express legal or not. In some apartments it may be allowed where there are windows that are fixed that don't open. Any new construction building more than likely would require a bedroom window to open or some other means of escape in case of fire. You should consult your local municipality for their local code in your area.
Thank you and have a good day.
