Karen Peyton answered:
I don't really understand your question, so I'll assume you're speaking of a down payment. If doing an FHA loan, your family should be able to contribute "gift funds" without any problem as long as they will agree in writing the funds do not have to pay repaid.

Good luck!

It is a sellers market in Skokie, Niles and Morton Grove. I am a local Realtor and there is no good rent to own situations that are for real. If you want to give me a call I can advise you on a lender I work with and find out what programs you would qualify for with a mortgage.
Good luck to you Zara.

What is you definition of noisy neighbors. I am not trying to shoot you down but the village has laws about the times it has to be quiet. Usually it is 11:00 PM through 7:00 AM. Call the 311 and inquire.
Sometimes just talking with the neighbors will do a better job.
I wish you all the best.

Bob Brandt answered:
Since you live nearby some of the big local offices, why not walk into one and ask the receptionist to let you speak with an available Realtor about it. Ask them about the market, paperwork, experience, comps and if it feels right, then ask them to come over and see the house in person. ... more

Usually if you go to a good insurance company in your area they can advise you on the insurance you need. You'll want to be sure that your insurance is customized for your property specifically. Then you can ensure that all of your property is covered that you need, and then you won't have to worry about damages. I hope you are able to find a good insurance company that can help you out! ... more

How "bad" is your credit? Also, are you able to pay several months up front or as a security deposit?

Paul Cionczyk answered:
Schools are definitely a big contributor to the cost of taxes. If a specific home has higher taxes than other homes, looking at the homes assessed value and home exemptions is a place to look and see where the numbers are coming in higher. A newer construction home may be looked at differently than an older remodeled home. ... more
