If your MLS system does not have a data feed to Trulia, your real estate agent can join Trulia and manually submit it.

This is an unusual request...and one that, if it were even possible, certainly wouldn't benefit you.

You will have more options if you have a strong equity position in you current home, which looks like it's in Matteson. Frankly, that's where your options begin and end.

I can help advise you, but we've got to discuss some of these variables. My contact info is below.

Your situation fits into three different possible scenarios. Give me a call and I can lay them out for you. Then, we can figure out how to help you achieve your goal of moving to Naperville.

This buyer may have already found a home, since the question was asked 3 years ago.

This old question from 2010 probably could have been asked in the stone age too when trying to pick out the right cave. The young ones want to make the right decisions and also bring the family together for a once or few times in a lifetime transaction. Sometimes we may learn from Ed or Sally or you may end up helping them buy/sell a home as the new family Realtor. ... more

You should be able to find a home. Just keep in mind different loans require different credit minimum scores and down payments. For example an FHA loan only requires 3.5% down while a conventional loan only requires 10%-20% down. The best way to figure out what you can afford is to speak with a lender. There are plenty of lenders like myself who would be more than willing to speak with you. Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can! Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

If you want the name of the buyers agent from this sale you can contact a local agent to get that information. You can call me to discuss if you'd like.

David Foote answered:
Price per square foot only is useful when you are comparing similar homes or if you have an homogenous of similar style, age, amenities like you would find in a subdivision that has specific covenants and restrictions. There are 2500 sf homes worth millions, and there are 2500 sf homes worth $180,000 in Naperville. Where each is located, the size of the land, the style and construction materials used, the amenities in each home and many other factors all influence the overall value.
There is no way to average the all the homes together and have a reliable and meaningful cost per square foot figure. So, if you are selling a home, a market analysis of your home to determine the anticipated value will yield a fairly accurate average of price per square foot for your home. Similarly, if you are buying a home, a market anaylsis will determine if your purchase is above or below market value compared to similar homes.
