The best thing I can contribute is there is nothing set in concrete when it comes to short sales unless you can find one that says BANK APPROVED. My daughter purchased her first home as a short sale. It was a bank approved sale and we were able to close in 3 weeks. When my wife and I were looking for a home, we also found a short sale. 6 weeks after putting in an offer and not hearing a thing, we backed out. No penalty in that..just withdrew our offer. ... more

Good morning Roger,

I’m no real estate agent, just a humble Mortgage Banker, but I can give you some guidance on your search for the right rental apartment.

In my experience in the real estate trade, I’ve discovered that the consumer is best served by adopting some simple strategies, whether you’re buying a home, selling one, or renting an apartment.

First: remember that real estate agents work on commission. The better quality agents---and those with the most experience---will be testing you from the initial contact to determine if you’re serious and will commit to using their services. Why? Because real estate is like any other business; you don’t sit at a table in a restaurant to read the menu without actually buying food at some point. It’s the same concept: the experienced real estate professional has to earn a living by renting apartments to serious and qualified prospective renters.

Therefore, the smart consumer should be well-prepared and committed to respecting the real estate professional’s time. Prepare yourself with three fundamentals: amenities, location, and price.

Know your requirements for the apartment you wish to rent in terms of amenities (one bedroom versus three bedrooms; elevator building or private house), location (proximity to public transportation or need for parking), and price. If you present yourself as well-prepared you’ll have a better chance of working with an experienced agent who will work hard to find you the right apartment.

Second, start with the internet---especially stay “local.” Here on you can easily find a local professional by clicking on “FIND an AGENT” at the top of this page. There you can hone in on a seasoned professional in exactly the area where you wish to rent your apartment.

TRULIA provides exceptional tools to help you as a consumer understand the quality of the professional you’re working with. Read the agent’s profile; check out the recommendations from previous clients; get to know the level of experience of the agent and the areas that agent covers.

Third, real estate agents are prevented by Federal regulations from answering certain types of questions. They cannot discuss schools or school districts, crime statistics, and a variety of other issues prohibited by Fair Housing regulations. If your agent is vague when you ask certain types of questions, now you know why.

Finally, demonstrate your level of seriousness to your real estate agent. Show up on time for your appointments to view apartments. If you’re required to submit documents for the Landlord to review with your rental application, get them into your agent’s hands pronto. Not only does this help you potentially get one step ahead of a competing renter, but you’ll be viewed by the Landlord as a responsible renter. Landlords prefer responsible renters, don’t they?

I hope that helps you improve the results of your search for an apartment, and helps you with a better quality experience.

I agree with Patrick it really depends on what your job looks like.
Hourly/college degree in the field/bonuses/commission Etc.
The best idea is to contact a local lender who can take a look at all your information to see if you qualify. It really should not take them very long to give you direction and an answer.
Good luck in your desire to buy a home.

This is a matter of comfort , for every buyer . The first thing you should do is know what it is you are going to do . Rent , Buy , Lease . Than you should calculate what your budget is . Than state your absolute needs for this new place. Once you get these things in line ,then you might have the answer to your question. Regardless , feel free to give me a call . I am a local agent in Addison , which is right next door. 50 % of my clients are looking in Glendale Heights and surrounding towns. I believe I could help you with any questions in those areas.

Thank you.

I can't quite agree that the real estate market has been stable in Glendale Heights in the last 6 years... Actually, between 2007 and 2010 there was around 30% decline in home values in the entire Chicago metro area. Since 2010, price declines continued but were not as drastic, typically, 3-5% per year. This trend seems to bottom out this year. No one really know what happens later but most experts agree that home values should remain stable or record a very modest decline. ... more

This answer has been posted to a similar question. Hope it helps you. A per square foot price is not as accurate as you would hope, but it does give you a general price range. Many factors must be taken into account. Foundation and lot conditions, the quality of materials used for it's finish. Speaking to a contractor in your area is certainly the unavoidable starting point. You can also contact a building designer/architect in your area. They can provide you with the plans that will both help you bid the project, but prepare the project for permitting. Permitting will be required unless your area is very rural and the county does not require this step. Contact for a list of qualified building designers in your area. They can also provide you with a list of quality builders to bid your project. Good luck. ... more

Since real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods, consider researching the information on your own beforehand.

Many complexes are already pre-approved for FHA financing. But your Realtor will need to get information from the association regarding their financial position as well as other factors that could disqualify the complex for FHA mortgages. Also be aware that the property will be inspected by an FHA "appraiser" and if there are problems with the property, they will need to be fixed before you can buy the home. Make sure that the lender and Realtor you are working with have recent experience with FHA mortgages, because a lot has changed in the last 12 months. ... more
