There are approximately 20 homes for sale in Carol Stream under $170,000 of which at least 4 are not short sales. You didn't indicate how many beds/bath and whether or not you are willing to buy a home that requires mid to extensive repairs, whether you are working with an agent or have been pre-approved. Call me tomorrow or email me and I'll be glad to send you the listings and perhaps get you out to see some of these homes tomorrow and to answer any questions you may have about buying a home in today's market! Thanks,
