You may want to talk to your agent about this issue. You probably didn't realize but you posted your question in a "Home selling in 60622" forum and Trulia will never answer it. ... more

A good local Broker could end up putting more money in your pocket with better representation and a good closing attorney will make sure the legal details are covered. Good luck.

Hello Julie,

It depends on how you plan to price it.

If it shows well and you price it to get a lot of buyer attention, you should be able to get an offer within a couple weeks in this market.

The buyer demand in Chicago is so high that some sellers are pricing right at the expected value and then get multiple offers resulting in a bidding war with a selling price above asking.

Just let me know if you would like some help.

Yes and yes.

Yes, in this market it is completely appropriate to help on the lending side of things. Will every prospective buyer go along with it? No. But by you being more educated you can only help if any problems do arise.

Yes, it is never a bad idea to have something in the by-laws in regards to # of units that can rent. Will you get something done before you sell? Probably not. Not only is a high % of renters not helping the lending end of things but some buyers out there won't like that their neighbors in their new condo are all renters.

Don't automatically discount the winter market as a good time to sell. While you don't have as many buyers as you do in the spring you also don't have the competition you do in the spring. If you price it right and there are not many like yours you might have a decent shot. Tough to say but don't just assume. Talk to your agent or several agents to come up with a great strategy.
