It is a great time to sell. There is not enough homes on the market for the amount of buyers out there looking. Prices are rising. Request a home valuation so we can show you what your home is worth in today’s market. We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you the expenses to sell. This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms.
Thinking about buying this year? You might want to buy your first home or maybe a home with a little more room. Get 2 years of tax returns, all your income and debt together and contact a loan officer to get prequalified. They will provide you with a letter showing what type of loan and what price works out for you. When you find a home we will send this with an offer to show the seller’s you do qualify for their home. If you wait to find a home it will be too late. Homes are selling fast right now. You need to be ready. If it is older than 30 days you will need to get it updated.
Resources to check out:
- Types of loans and the process
- VA loans and the requirements
- Current interest rates
- Down payment assistance
- Illinois homeowner assistance and some communities
- IDHA programs
It might be worth your time to check the different programs. There is 2 new IDHA programs that one might help out with student debt and the other one if you live there for at least 5 years you might not have to pay it back.
We have many brochures we can email you on Radon, Lead-based paint, understanding the costs and information about special service areas.
