Townhomes where you own the land are called Fee Simple and those are approved. Townhomes under a condo ownership plan need to be looked up or just use the Realtor MLS that your agent has, as it sorts them out real quick. They just added a great new feature for it. Go over to your Realtors office and sit with them. ... more

Move in specials are very good. Other specials like refer a friend, pay your rent on time for the year you get one month free, make the place stand out from the crowd.

If they are both on the note and she quit claims the house to him without lender approval he could still be facing a foreclosure because of the due on sale clause in the mortgage. Sounds like he stopped making payments, so he is as much to blame for the problem as her. If he were my brother I would advise him to contact the lender’s workout department and see if there is any way to salvage his position. Depending on their history with the lender they may not be able to do anything, after a certain point lenders are not required to go the extra mile. I hope it works out for him,

it depends on the layout and what school district you are in, Alsip has 5 Grammer school districts and 2 High school district, and what area in Alsip you live in. Some areas have more Foreclosures and Short Sales than others and the age of the house as well as the size of rooms and surroundings also play a factor. Feel free to contact me and I can do a market analysis for you!! If your interested in selling don't wait to long, interest rates are going up and there are going to be changes in financing in Jan. ... more

Many Villages have rental/landlord inspections and mold may be something that sets off an alarm with an individual inspector. ... more
