It sound like you need to repair your credit I am not sure what your score are but there are lenders out there that will help you repair your credit and there are also credit repairs companies like lexingtonlaw.com that can help you. Also depending on your credit score you may qualify for some specific mortgage products, contact Wells Fargo they may have a program for you.

Thanks

I would advise working with an agent that has access to these types of properties and has already established a storng relationship with developers/builders. I work with several agents that work primarily with well know developers and they are always looking to work with buyers before the properties are listed. Please feel free to contact me for more information

Dear Renter,

As brokers we can only refer you to websites such as http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/il/chicago/crime/ . Another way is for you to go to the neighborhood at different times of the day and gauge for yourself.

Best of luck,

Rule of Thumb is 2-3% of value.

As per $$ amount it depends on the size and location of the condo/home.

Justin,
Loans for Condo's these days are an issue. Check with your bylaws then speak with a loan officer. Here is Janet Mrowka's work number 312.927.6618 and email Janet.Mrowka@1amllc.com.
I could come and speak with you about a sell price after Janet has answered all of your questions.
I can be reached at 312.569.9806 or Corey@McCrayRealEstate.com.

You can sign them in a phone booth (if there still are any out there) as long as there is a notary to witness and sign they were there to see you sign them.

Dear home buyer,

I completely understand your concern! Get a really excellent home inspector and provide him or her with all the reports provided by the home seller. The home inspector during inspection should give you his or her opinion if you should have a full environmental study.

Best of Luck
