If you are thinking about purchasing a Foreclosed property it is usually best to work with a Real Estate Professional. A local Real Estate Agent should be able to guide you through the buying process and help you get the best deal available. ... more

it is in a great subdivision very private. It is a foreclosure and has been stripped of mechanical s..
It has an unusual floor plan,walk in the front door to a foyer and then immediately to an area that is like a bar in a resort, with sliding glass doors to a gigantic indoor pool room that is covered with plywood. The home has been remodeled and added to. It has older interior finishes, and not a very big back yard.
hopes that helps. I will show it to you if you would like.call me if you would like to see it.Terri theodore Coldwell Banker Honig Bell 630-863-0479

So this is going from the mred archives but.

There were 110 single family homes that closed from 1/1/09 to 12/2/09 which is about 9.2 per month


There was 192 active with 15 under contract which would leave 177 active properties if all of those close.

So, if you take 177 properties that are active and divided by 9.2 homes closed per month you will have 19.239 months of inventory.

Lemont is very established ans respected area and very popular because of its location and housing inventory.

With troubled listings, especially with the low inventory now, there are only a few reasons that you are experiencing problems.

1. Area - something about the area is not as desirable - are you near the tracks or the canal?

2. Appeal - sometimes staging or updating can help or curb appeal, keeping costs and market in mind.

3. Marketing - are you being seen by the right people in the right places?

4. Yes - price. Price cures many woes and does keep people from showing sometimes - just depends.

Please feel free to contact me. I do sell in Lemont and would be happy to give you my take on your situation. I have a unique listing and commission approach that may appeal to you.

All common contingencies are already built into the standard sale contract that is used by Realtors and Lawyers. It is a simple matter to fill in the blanks to specify your contingency.

It is common sentiment that you have a bias against mortgage brokers and wrongly perceive that banks offer better mortgage options. I have over 25 years experience in real estate sales, and have learned during that time that the lender is critical in the financial well-being of my clients.

When you call a bank, you get their rate, price and program combination. When you call a mortgage broker, they usually have over 40 different sources of funds and widely varied prices and programs.

My experience is that mortgage brokers and mortgage bankers are far more competitively priced than any bank. In fact, if you care to find out more, a Vice President at Illinois' largest bank, wrote an article called the "Bankers Dirty Dozen". It lists 13 reasons why you should never go to a bank for your mortgage. Contact me, for further information.

I had a friend run into the same issue with another builder. It was a headache, but they talked to a lawyer and they got everything worked out.

I haven't heard anything about safety issues, but there is definately a smell, and when it gets really cold you can see just how many fumes are coming off of that place.

Your Realtor can, if you do not have a Realtor yet, interview some and hire one. You want a trusted relationship that will guide you through a home purchase.

Best of Luck.

Ruffled Feathers is the only gated community in Lemont. Town homes there do tend to hold their value pretty well compared to other Lemont subdivisions with town homes.

Laura,

I've been a native of Lemont for 18 years and a Realtor for 22 years. I stress quality, not quantity. I also lead with integrity. I see agents "buying listings" at any list price, only to recommend price reductions a month or two later. I've never done that and never will. I do an honest market analysis and provide my sellers with straight facts. I also do a quality job of exposing the property to the market. The right price and market exposure gets the job done.

Refer your clients with confidence. They are welcome to speak directly with my past and present clients for an unbiased opinion of my services.

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
It sounds that you are a home buyer in Lemont.....Am I correct?

Not sure why you want to know what the favorite style of home is, for WHOM?! It is such a personal taste and it is different for everybody.
Some like older homes, some newer homes, some contemporary and some traditional.....

Well the majority of buyers, so I think depending on areas of search are looking for a 2 story home,
or similar, like split levels, tri levels, some upstairs and downstairs, stairs make a home exciting and different.

Then there are those who are really in love with a ranch and a huge basement, sprawling ranches
could be gorgeous --- and then we have the curb appeal and the age of homes.... so many choices and so many different tastes...
If you can share the reason for asking, I will be able to give you a better and more specific answer.
Take care

A.I.:
If you want a short answer to your question, it is NO. More importantly, I think that it would be a mistake to buy a home that has or had a serious mold problem. I know a guy who did mold remediation for a living. He bought a moldy foreclosure house and remediated it. Or so he thought. Six months later both he and his wife had very serious respatory issues.

Hi Anne: More than a year has gone by since you posted about Briarcliff. During that time sale prices have come down. Homes there have sold in the 400s, 500s and 600s. That said, the sellers are still asking $650K to over a million. I guess "hope springs eternal". If you are still thinking about buying in Lemont and would like to work with an experienced agent who lives in Lemont and offers a serious commission rebate, give me a call.

In any situation, short sale or otherwise, you can make an offer to purchase up until the time of closing. It must be presented but does not have to be acted upon.
