I just spoke to the owner today. You know a couple of years ago that was listed at $900,000+ and her and her son are kicking themselves everyday for turning away the $800,000 offer! Consumers in the lookout to buy, Now Is The Time. There is a tax credit of $8000 from Uncle via Fannie and Freddie that are waiting to assist new buyers. WHERE ARE THEY!!! A few years ago a buyer couldnt touch the ridiculous prices the real estate market was asking for. Now time and money are on our side. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE!!!

areas. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your Realtor, please do not hesitate to call me for
scheduling. Thank you, Maria Clark 312 953 4484

Dear Shawn,

Maria is right about the price ranges of the properties in this development.

If you do not yet have a real estate agent, then you should know before you commit to working with someone specific that generally speaking (with some possible exceptions) the agent who walks in with you to see any property for the first time will "by default" become you real estate agent (at least for this property)- unless you have a written agreement with a different agent who you have already designated as your real estate agent. If that is the case and you'd like to continue to work with your own designated agent, then you should contact your agent to arrange a showing/viewing of this property for you.

Again if you do not yet have a real estate agent- I would suggest speaking with multiple agents before you make a choice on whom you'd like to work with, and I would not necessarily rule out people who have responded to your request here. These agents tend to be pretty technologically up to date (compared to the vast majority of Realtors), and as a result they can often respond to requests more quickly.

I have also included some links on how to choose a Realtor if you are just starting out whether you are buying or selling.

Dear Shawn: The asking prices range from $399,000-$425,000. However, the listing were posted back in 2007. I am certain the prices have dropped. I will get back to you shortly. If you have a moment, please call Maria Clark at 312 953 4484.

Thank you,
