In Oak Brook there are 3 listings showing up that allow cats or dogs. These were marked by the agents as allowing them - there might be more that are pet friendly but were not marked. The monthly rental price is $3800 to $12,500 (5 BR 6.1 BA house).

In Oak Brook Terrace there are 2 listings marked as pet friendly. Depending on your needs you may want to check surrounding communities.

Feel free to contact me if you want me to send you the listing information or if you want me to do a customized search, otherwise good luck with your search and welcome to the western suburbs of Chicago!

I entered the business over 3 years ago. It is not an easy process, but the what holds true is that Realtors are your best referral system. You have to be diligent in follow up. I've been able to add Realtors to my list from a variety of avenues. Start with your own social networks and ask them if they have a Realtor friend, family member, or one who helped them with their purchase that they can introduce to you. That's where I started. Would love to share more, but this is already getting wordy. Feel free to contact me and we discuss further over coffee. My office is in Palatine.

Ron Thomas answered:
Once the Trustee's Sale has taken place; the house is FORECLOSED. It belongs to the bank. The Homeowner is done, finished!

Now, in about 4 to 6 weeks, the house should be listed by a Realtor who will sell it for the Bank.

The only exception is that some States have laws for REDEMPTION and if the homeowner can come up with the money, they can redeem the mortgage. It doesn't happen too often.

It would only make sence to let it pay itself whatever your deal is. Weather it is for sale, or you would like to rent it out. I mean, why not make money while you're looking for a buy...
