James Syed answered:
Contact the Chicago Police Department for this inquiry. Having said that, I lived most of my life in East and West Rogers Park. My best opinion is that WEST Rogers Park is better than east epecailly west of Western Ave and North of Pratt Ave.

Hope it helps.

There is a very common mis-conception that it is free to use a buyer's agent service.

Well, in the very ancient past, this might have been the case.

However, in today's age of internet and competition, it is certainly not free to use just any agent.

There are either discount, full-service agents, or deep discount agents in Illinois who can provide large rebates on real estate transactions to the buyer, thereby reducing your costs. This practice is both legal and ethical, but more importantly, cost effective.

- one example is a large brokerage with red and fin in the name, offering roughly 1% purchase price rebate. This effectively translates to a 40% rebate on a typical 5% fee deal,

- there are many other brokerages which legally can rebate you close to 2% of the transaction cost. The higher the purchase price, the higher the rebate,

We an do self-employed with only one year of work history. Most lenders require 2 years. We can do this as we work directly with Fannie Mae and Ginnie Mae and fund the loans in our name. We aren't waiting around on the big banks to approve the deal. We staff our own underwriting department and get things done quickly. You can call me at (630) 639-1081 and I can give you a preapproval the same day and help you find a quality realtor in the area.

We can do: FHA, Conventional, USDA, VA, HARP, Interest Only, Home Equity, Fixed, and Variable. Find out which product is right for you by calling Brad at (630) 639-1081.

This house is not currently listed in the MLS. It could be for sale privately or by owner but right now at this point I do not know if it is under contract or even for sale.

If you would like help finding properties that are for sale, please let me know.

Thanks!

Bill Eckler answered:
Entropy,

With an accepted offer in place, any additional buyer would be fooling themselves by thinking they could jump in line in front of the buyer already in place.....it just doesn't work that way.

However, as others have presented, these types of sales very frequently fall apart for a variety of reasons. To this end, probably the best way to proceed would be to continue to monitor the market relative to this home, being ready to move quickly should it return to "active" status.

Good luck,

Bill

Laura answered:
I grew up in west rogers park (west of ridge) between bell and oakley. It has always been quite safe and fairly quiet. I recently moved back by there with my kids, ages 10-16, from the north suburbs and they feel very safe walking around there at all times. I still have friends who live in the area and say the same. You need to be careful in general anyway, that said it can get a bit strange near howard street and near warren park late at night on weekends but again no place is immune. Kids are happy with the move. ... more
