You are less than a mile east of the Winfield Metra Station. You go out to Jewell Rd. and head west into town. The station is on Jewell. From Google maps, there appear to be sidewalks all the way.

Hi Matt, there are always multiple factors that you need to have reviewed THOROUGHLY by a good mortgage broker to see if you can qualify through conventional/FHA means or possibly through private/portfolio financing (at higher cost). The first question I would ask is when was your bankruptcy discharged? Generally, conventional/FHA financing options require a minimum 2 year wait period after discharge (even though the bankruptcy will appear on the report for much longer). Contact me if you want a good mortgage broker to talk to.

If your credit score stays in that range, you will not qualify. Hard money lenders and lease options may be the exception, but you will pay some high premiums if you get a taker.
Your best suggestion is to find a local lender who will work with you to improve your credit. As a licensed lender I've done this with clients in the past successfully. Removing legitimate errors, paying down certain debts, maintaining a clean history can all be steps in the right direction. The sooner you start, the sooner you may be able to buy. Depending on why your score is at 590, you may be successful within a few weeks or months of achieving a score of 640 or better.

What does your Realtor say? If you don't have one, how did you arrive at your purchase price? If you haven't had any activity, the price could be a reason. If you've had activity, but no offers, what has been the feedback? ... more
