Hello Jongpil Kim, they start at 2bd 2ba 1,400sf for $1,500 monthly rent. The single family homes in Schaumburg with 1,900sf start from $1,800 and up.

You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments and qualifications. You may qualify to buy and pay about the same as rent. Yes some are available from 6-12 month lease.

The purchase start from 224k for 2bd 2.5ba 1,400sf condo, from 229k for 3bd 2.5ba 1,546sf condo and the single family homes start from 249k for 4bd 2ba 1,400sf home. Check out the web reference below...

To list your home for sale by owner is FREE! There is no charge. Understand that the agents who advertise on all listings (including For Sale By Owner) pay monthly fees to Zillow and Trulia to appear on those listings. They need buyers to contact them. Briefly, they are paying your fee to list your home by owner. You cannot remove the agents. This is how websites like Zillow and Trulia make money - from these agents monthly fees.

I would also spend a few minutes and Google "Flat Fee Broker" for your area. This allows you to list your home in the local MLS system for a flat fee and you just pay a buyers broker a commission - about 3%. You end up saving 3% by not listing with a full service brokerage. The difference is when buyers contact realtors from Zillow or Trulia, these realtors will first check the MLS system and if your home is not listed in the MLS, these agents will tell the buyers that your home is NOT for sale. Agents don't bother to check websites to see if your home is for sale by owner.

You can test this out now. Pick any listing in your area that is "For Sale By Owner", call one of the agents who appear on that listing and pretend you're a buyer. Tell the agent that you're interested in this home and want to schedule an appointment to see it. See what the agent says. If he/she says something like "The home is not for sale or has been sold" ask the agent if they just checked the MLS system.

You need to visit some local brokerage offices and ask to speak with a realtor who handles rentals.

I was just in 1709 Park and the interior is all redone and nice.
The outside could use some general extra attention. It is not in an official flood zone, but the yard is flat and not huge. The house is not huge, but very modernized and generally I think it is a good price also.
We could see it inside and I could show you 5 others you may also like at the same time.

MCM_STL answered:
The bank doesn't own the property until the auction process is complete so they can't sell it as an REO before then.

It is very common for an auction to be delayed. Perhaps the current owner is trying to work out a loan modification or has filed for bankruptcy. Maybe there's a short-sale purchase contract on the property. I know a house around the corner from me was supposed to go to auction last week but because someone is trying to buy it as a short sale, the auction has been canceled for now.

At least where I am, you can place a bid prior to the auction date but if that doesn't get any interest, the lender may push back the sales date to try and get more people interested.

I would suggest knocking on some neighbors doors and discussing it with them, calling the association president and the management company, requesting minutes from the last board meetings, viewing the budgets to check reserves and just generally do your due diligence until you are comfortable. A special assessment they had years ago was very large. If you have a Realtor, ask them to help gather the facts. ... more

Bob Brandt answered:
I have recently shown most of the available townhomes to other buyers and it remains a great choice for someone that want super easy access to the train and expressways, someone that want a young home with modern floorplans, the school district 54 and 211, reasonable prices for the younger age of the homes, a variety of designs including a rare first floor ranch townhome and nearby amenities.
The wetlands are more a feature for their beauty and not a normal concern since the homes do not have basements or crawls. The expressway is already in, so you can see how loud it is now. Rentals from new investor buyers are currently prohibited.
