You can't rely on Trulia for accurate information. Trulia is an advertising website. Agents know the facts! To get the facts, contact a local agent - by using the tab at the top of the page.

Good luck!

My very brief tutorial:

In a short sale, the owner still owns the property. They are selling it for less than they owe their lender, and cannot come up with the difference.
(for example, they're selling for $100,000, and they still owe the bank $140,000).

so once they get a buyer, the bank has to decide if they're willing to take the loss, and release the borrower from the debt. That process is anything but short, and can take anywhere from 30 days to 6 months to get an answer from the bank. And at the end of that time, the answer could be "no".

Homewood traditionally is a very stable community with a good mix of demographics. As mentioned, the home sale percentage is not high when you compare it to other nearby areas. A great source for neighborhood information is I have also included a link to my website which has a video of information about Homewood. Hope it helps! I would love to share more insight about the area with you.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your possibilities of renting a home. There are options and you make the final decision. I would also like to know what your plans are since your lender increased your payment? Have you considered getting the property on the market? Good luck what ever you decide but contacting me to discuss it more may prove to be very helpful.

Yes, there are. As a lender at Regional Mortgage Corporation in Orland Park, we have lenders who have programs for teachers, healthcare professionals, fire and police employees just to name a few. Some of the guidelines require a 5% down payment for this special program and a 660 FICO score. FHA is also a consideration with a 3.5% down payment requirement.

While both have their advantages or drawbacks, it is important to take a look at each. If you can give me some information and send it to email: with the specifications of what you need, I would be happy to help you secure financing.
