This is a quiet neighborhood and we'd like to keep it that way. What we need are new neighbors who care about their property and want a good place to live.
CHICAGO was the real reason for the downfall. Chicago decided it wanted the "city" back, so they removed the Black's and sent them as far as Danville, Illinois. This was the rebuilding of CHICAGO! One daughter lived there and her daughter said now there school is filled 'AIDS". I'm sure there were other areas and towns destroyed by the change.
Unfortunately, there are lots of people in this USA who could care less about their home or yours and if enough negative influences take over...there goes the neighborhood.
I have sold a lot of homes in Park Forest. The people I have sold to think it is a nice place to live.
Park Forest does have vacant homes due to foreclosure. But so do many areas in the south suburbs. Many of these homes are being purchased by investors and rehabbed to new homes. Investors usually don't buy and put in money on rehab to areas that they are not going to get money out and profit.
And as many towns, there also are some vacant store fronts and businesses. That is the economy.
Plus, Park Forest has a lot of buying incentives now. So judge for yourself, but it is a good time to buy there at a low price and potentially get a buying incentive downpayment assistance and a nice newly rehabbed home.
Please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to send you some homes in Park Forest and nearby areas.
