Your offer should be based on two things:

1. Comparable sales. What have comparable properties in the area/subdivision been selling for in the past 6-9 months?

2. Condition of the property. Does the list price already reflect a discount due to the condition? How much money, if any, is it going to take to bring the property "up to speed" with others selling for the same amount?

Feel free to contact me directly -'d be happy to do a little research and give you an idea of the range you should be in.

Don't rely on this site to tell you how much houses are selling for in Manteno. Don't rely on Zillow either. Both inflate the prices for some reason. The only truthful site is Redfin. Seriously, look up 'recently sold houses in Manteno' on a search engine, then compare prices from Redfin with these sites. It's ridiculous. ... more

This is not terrible. It just needs a little boost. You are working on it and that is the important thing. First, any credit correction company you are paying should be helping you do 3 things... tell you what you need to pay off, help you fix inaccuracies and help you establish new trade lines that will improve your credit. If you don't have someone like that - get a reliable one. National Credit Care is one I have used. There are a lot of scams - be careful.

As far as owner financing. This is possible, but not everyone knows or understands it. An attorney needs to come up with the contract and everyone has their own opinion on it. Get an agent out there who knows what they are doing and ask them about it. This is an old idea that has been reborn recently. I do this with investor properties myself. Check out my blog for information. I may also have an idea for you with a seller in that area who I know. Give me a call.

Hi Judy,

I reviewed this listing live on our site and from within your Trulia account, and the price and photos appear to match. If you made edits to this listing, or to your profile photo, please note that it can take up to 24 hours before those updates display live on our site.

Please be sure to contact us if anything is still amiss so we can help you get the problem fixed.

Best Wishes,
