It would be age discrimination if you were not offered a loan. You still must have documentable qualifying income to support a mortgage payment including taxes and insurance.

For that short of a term, probably an Extended Stay America or Homewood suites in Schaumburg would be the most suitable. This is what they are set up for.

Suzanne Hamilton answered:
You should also check the rules for your village on what is or is not a bedroom. Because older homes did not have closets in every bedroom, there is no requirement for a closet for a bedroom in most towns.

You need to decide. Most buyers will want a closet. So you can offer that it will be done before closing if you want, but it may deter some people. Buyers sometimes don't believe what they can not see.

Carl Henker answered:
The first place to start is with a call your existing lender. Find out what their process is and what information is required. Do not pay anyone an up front fee to handle the process, if you use an independent third party only pay a fee after the final modification paperwork with the lender is signed. Good Luck ... more

Good morning Cheri:

As per my MLS search this morning, it looks as though there are currently 4 pending properties to be sold, 9 that have closed in the past year and 10 actively on the market. Out of the 9 sold, 5 were foreclosures. When buying into a community with a Home Owners Association, make sure that it is well run and that the bank account isn't empty. With delinquencies high, it could mean that current home owners have to pick up the slack to get updates done within the subdivision. I can't speak for Tanglewood to know what they might do to attract new buyers, but if you are considering a purchase there - you could become active with your HOA and voice your concerns and perhaps start some sort of marketing plan to help insure the resale value of your new home.

A buyers agent, such as myself, is typically paid by the seller and will negotiate on your behalf and help to make sure that your buying experience goes as smoothly as possible. Please let me know if you might need further assistance. Feel free to contact me directly by clicking on my name and then the 'contact me' tab.

Good Luck!

Hi Deerfern,

Im not sure if you have taken care of your problem, but I can do a VA Vendee loan as a refiance, cash out or rate and term, as long as you have had the loan for 12 months. If you go conventional, you dont have to bring any money to closing, as long as there is some equity in the house. If we go FHA, you would have to pay the pre-paid items at closing. the pre-paid items are just the escrow account. If you need help with this, please contact me at ... more

Howard King, Real Estate Pro in Schaumburg, IL
Wed Apr 16, 2008
Howard King answered:

You don't say if anyone has been showing the property. Have there been any recent sales in the subdivision? My research tell there are areas in H.P. that have had little or no activity in over a year. If you are getting showing what is the feedback? What is the condition of the unit? Have other units sold in the subdivision? What is your competition? You need to know the answers to these questions. I've sold many t/h in Hanover Park over the years and recently the market there has been hit harder than some of the surrounding areas.

Good Luck
