You can take a chance in Craig's list if you want but a Realtor will always give you value.

Have you considered both leasing and selling at the same time? This way, you can get the best of both worlds!

Furthermore, when leasing... have you ever considered the following:

1. What happens if tenant slips and falls - then sues me?
2. What happens if the tenant defaults on their lease?
3. What happens if tenant maliciously damages my property?

There are a lot of risk management solutions you can be made aware of - and coverage that will pay your lease payment for up to 6 months, if your tenant defaults.

For more information, visit my website at

Good luck!

You should contact a lender ASAP to run your credit and make sure there's nothing on there that needs to be addressed. Addressing credit issues can take time. In addition, if you are a first time home buyer or have not owned a unit in the last three years, you may qualify for a grant of $7500 to help you buy a place.

A reputable lender that I can recommend to you is Bernard Duganzic at 847 508 0190 and he's with Key Mortgage

I can help you with your search, feel free to contact me

I will speak as a potential renter - in many cases the broker or landlord does not call or email back, so it works both ways.

Mike Opyd answered:
It would be a good idea to interview a few agents to find one your comfortable with. Have them set you up on a property search so you can monitor the areas your interested in for now. Spring is a good time for you to get out there an look actively. Plan a few months before your ideal move in date. ... more

Cindy Wilson answered:
There are plenty of rental sites out there, if you're looking for a really low-cost apartment. Sounds like you're trying to rent, so don't bother with Home Buying questions. Walk around the neighborhood and see what management companies have buildings in the area. They don't always advertise online. ... more
