This area is a hot bed for new foreclosure properties at half the price. Romeoville, Bolingbrook, Plainfield, Crest Hill - I have seen a lot of homes just a few years old that can be purchased for less with just a little shining up.
This is a nice home. If you would like some help with this, feel free to contact me. I am a buyer's broker primarily and would be happy to help. I would encourage you not to call the listing agent about this. It is difficult sometimes to be a dual agent and service both customers. The buyer never comes out on top. Some loyalty is always to the seller.
There is no cost to you to use your own broker.

The property was purchased in 2005 for $275,000 and the owners were unable to sell it when they listed it in 2007. They lost the home to foreclosure, and the bank sold it to the current owner(s) in 2008 for $200,000. It doesn't look like they owe much on the home currently, if anything at all.
Are you still interested? If so, I will ask the listing agent for the rental whether the home owner is interested in selling the property.
