Last I heard Wal Mart was going in. That used to be the buidling for Recycled Greeting cards. Sort of sorry to see Wal Mart come in to alter the fabric of the neighborhood. They say change is good, we'll see. Keep us posted if you learn of anything.... more
Chicago is a year round market so if you are not listed you have no opportunity to capture they buyers out there on any given day. Market conditions always factor into a sellers decision to list. Based on current market conditions it is better to list now than wait to get highest and best price.... more
Depends on the seller, their ugency to sell, and the validity of the list price!
I would say that, in general, most sellers won't jump up and down clapping their hands with glee with an offer 20% below their list price, cash or no cash.
That being siad, if the house is overpriced and has been sitting on the market for a while.........then you might be able to work something out. Just make sure your agent has smelling salts when the offer is first presented!
Kidding aside - if the home is reasonably priced.......it's unlikely $400,000 will work......but.........you have nothing to lose! Give it a try!
(what does your agent have to say, assuming you have one??)
Good luck!... more
