You may have built a great home, but the appraisal is going to dictate the maximum you will be able to sell it for. The details you have provided tell a lot, but there is more that needs to bee seen. Alsip has had 26 single family homes close in the last year. There have only been 2 homes that have closed at over $100/sq foot, so the odds of an appraisal coming in at $130 are low. That being said, the only way you could get a more accurate answer is by having an agent do a Comparative Market Analysis.

Any local REALTOR has access to ALL foreclosures. DO NOT USE REALTY TRAC. It's a scam. They lure you in with a free trial, but then want to charge you later. And the "listings" they have on here usually are fake and don't include a real address.

All bank owned properties are going to be listed in your MLS. Any Realtor has access to the MLS and you can get this information for FREE! And the Realtor will take you around to look at those properties for FREE! It's really the best deal out there.

if you have enough equity, you might consider offering a lease option if the association would allow it. If you own it free and clear you could offer seller financing

Wow, 9 years is a long time. You should have filed suit in court 9 years ago to get your money back, and this would have been sorted out. The Illinois State Treasurer was supposed to have been given the money already. If the broker took the money or dispersed it without your permission or a court order, they could be in some trouble, although the broker is only required to keep records as old as five years. If I were you, I would contact the real estate BROKER and find out what happened to the money. See if they will provide you with any records. The first step is tracking down the money, and then you probably need to file suit to get it back. But being so long ago, people are going to be hard to find, and records are likely destroyed. You're probably going to have a hard time finding your money. ... more
