This is a lovely home with a walkout basement. Very desirable area with desirable schools. Sold in 2008 for 559,000. I know alot about this area since I live in this school district as well and very familiar with Lake Zurich/ Forest Lake area as well as surrounding.

Please contact me. I'd be happy to help with advice.

Are you asking this of the listing agent or seller? Your question was addressed to the general public.

Interesting question. I think the answer is just as different as the client. It is in the eye of the beholder. A realtor needs to adapt to the needs of the client. In my mind, the Realtor needs to use their expertise and experience to give the buyer all the information they need to make a good decision. They need to be honest, knowledgeable, and provide all information - good and bad to the client.

Realtors should be guides and sounding boards for their clients as well as a wealth of information and knowledge to answer any and all questions.

But I think the singular most important role of a Realtor is communication. They need to be available to clients when they have questions and need information. That means - not being a "yes" man to buyers or sellers and equally not being a hard sell. Exceptional service and working toward the client's best interest.

Your best place to look is your parish/county website of where you will be purchasing the home. Here is a link to the office. You can probably figure it out from there. If not, call the number listed. Good luck

Property taxes are unique to the individual property. Which property or area are you interested in learning more about?

Hi Susan,
In 2009 working as a tax rep I appealed over 600 property assessments. Many of these homes were recently purchased. The Lake County Board of Review and many assessors did recognize both short sales and foreclosures as long as it was openly advertised on the market, ie the MLS, signs etc. I know that some assessors are even including these types of sales in the sales ration studies. If you recently bought a home through a realtor most likely you would be able to appeal and get the assessment reduced. I hope this information helps you!

Hello Armond.

The property you're referring to can be purchase in one of two ways. It can be purchased with all the land or only part of the land. The first option is to purchase the farm house with the barn and a bit over six acres. That option is listed at $699,990. The second option is to purchase the farm house with barn and the full seventeen plus acres. That option is listed at $1,269,000. (I don't have any info about the location or size of the six lots, although depending on how you want to subdivide it after you acquire it, and for what use, you could make that more lots or less.) Please note, whoever buys the land will have to pay the recapture fees to annex the land into Lake Zurich. Additionally, I've been notified that three acres are identified as unbuildable wetlands, but that the wetlands may be able to be relocated.

The Lake Zurich post office which services all of the 60047 ZIP code (and I also believe the 60049 ZIP code) will be moving their retail operation from the current location off Buesching to a new location which will be located on Route 22, right across Telser Road from this property which should help the exposure of the property. As the property is located on Route 22, the most important things to consider are the setbacks from Route 22 so if future expansions to Route 22 are needed, they can proceed with those with minimal impact to the businesses on those lots.

Still interested?? Drop me a line or e-mail me. Best of luck in your search.

Since this is PUD and all PUDs are by default FHA approved, why can't I go for FHA instead of conventional loan?
