Hi Shana,
Not sure what your budget is but there are a fair amount of things available in the Providence neighborhood on the west side of Sun Prairie. Waunakee is a tough market for good rentals and also a little pricier. Another area to check may be the Windsor/Deforest area.
Feel free to contact me if I can help further.

Hello Amy,

Going on just alittle information and not knowing the property make it difficult to advise. However, being a property in Sun Prairie I would like you to contact Michelle Hahn at Bank of Sun Prairie. Michelle is VP of lending and ask her to consider your property as a "portfolio" product. You may have higher cost, i.e., rate, arm, etc. at least it will be completed. In addition, Abbey Wentland from Fairway Mortgage has away of working Miracles. Her number is 608 234-0689.

Tell either lady that I recommend please.

If you would like to contact me directly to discuss in more detail, I can give you better insight.......

Good Luck,

Bill Baker

Marty you welcome to call me to discuss.

There are several properties in Sun Prairie that will use Land Contracts to sell the property. I have personally used Land Contracts when purchasing and selling homes and would enjoy discussing my experiences with you. Not all Sellers will open disclose or offer a Land Contract..... We have to find them by asking the right questions.

Lets start with what type of property your looking for.
