Bryson Smith answered:
Always use an agent. I've been stuck trying to sell a home that someone bought fsbo because they paid too much. Only the agent knows the comparables truly. Websites dont tell you the condition of the neighboring homes that sold, or what amenities or features the home had in it. Calling an agent would have been the best because they would have given you accurate numbers and could have previewed current competition along with looking up solds + inside photographs. ... more

You have to be aggressive when looking for a rental. A lot of renters will stop by the home and check in over and over before its actually the day the landlord says he is willing to rent. Keep being diligent! ... more

Yes, we have one we are getting ready to list. Tons of farmhouse charm with two stories a wrap around front porch and great outbuilding in back. The best part built in '96 so no old house problems that can come with the really old farmhouses. Great location, minutes from Pekin, East Peoria, and Morton. Let us know if you want more info. ... more

If it did not hold pressure that means something is cracked or leaking in the plumbing.

You are not allowed to fix things on any home you don't own. That is true. You can't make them turn on the water because if it didn't hold pressure, turning on the water could cause more damage.

But if HUD has repair escrow required for FHA loans at $500, it is probably minor. But if they say no, you can't turn on the water. period.

This is a foreclosure home and you need to decide if it is work the risk (price good enough) or not. Otherwise, walk away. Trying to fight them will not likely work but will waste your time.

A FHA or USDA loan would do the trick for you.

I am a mortgage broker. If I can be of service, please let me know!

Holly,
I am a Pekin Realtor, and can tell you that we do not have this on a regular basis in our area. We do occassionally know of someone willing to work with a buyer if their home has sat on the market for a while. You need to work with your Realtor to network this possibility. It may take a little time, but it is possible. Good luck! ... more
