Beautiful Lakewood Creek West Home – Ultra Clean and Move-in Ready
The time is right – we may have officially hit bottom in this market and buyers are out in force this spring. Because of this, inventory is way down in popular areas such as Lakewood Creek West. If you haven’t been out to look at homes, be prepared for less selection and more competition. For this reason, the good homes go fast. I feel this home located at 2804 Heather Lane is one of the ones that will go fast. Located south of Rt. 30 in Montgomery, this two-story home has a lot of positives. Fist, it’s priced extremely well. Second, it’s a traditional sale so no waiting for a lengthy short sale approval on this one. Finally, this is one of the cleanest homes you’ll ever encounter. It’s been lovingly maintained by its current owners and is absolutely move-in ready. The home feeds into the award-winning Oswego School District 308 and is walking distance from the elementary as well as the nearby park, clubhouse and pool.
This home is the popular Essex “C” model with some premium upgrades. The large family room on the back of the home includes vaulted ceilings and two skylights. The large kitchen features a pantry closet and all appliances are included. The laundry is located on the first floor just across from the basement door and 2804 Heather also includes both washer and dryer. There is a large formal dining room just off of the kitchen and you’ll also appreciate the large living room located just off of the foyer.Continue reading →
Beautiful Like-new Townhome in Cambridge Countryside
In this crazy real estate market, it’s refreshing when you find a townhome that’s in pristine condition at a good price and isn’t another short sale or foreclosure. That’s exactly what you’ve found with 2729 Borkshire. This beautiful 2BR/2.1BA townhome is located in Cambridge Countryside on the far northeast side of Aurora near Fermilab and the Chicago Premium Outlet Mall. 2729 Borkshire is a single-owner property and has been impeccably maintained. It is being offered at a list price of $159,900 and there are several special financing options available. Please call Eric Rogers at (630) 346-1041 for any questions or for a private tour. Here are just a few of the exceptional features this townhome includes:
Beautiful Country Kitchen
Perhaps one of the most impressive features of this townhome is the large country kitchen. You’ve probably seen the typical townhome kitchen before – you usually have banks of cabinets on either side of basically an aisle with the stove on one side and sink on the other. Probably functional but definitely not high-end. If that’s what you’re expecting here, be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. This townhome features a full-sized modern kitchen with all the amenities. Start with enough space to move around freely, even with the large center island. All appliances are included and in perfect condition (a rarity in this market where most sellers take their appliances with them or they’re so trashed you don’t want them). The beautiful oak cabinets offer plenty of storage space and the hardwood floors are pristine. Two features you’ll love, particularly i you like to entertain, are the corner sink and pass-through window to the family room. That way, you can be working on meals and still be interacting with your guests. The kitchen also includes a large pantry as well as a large dining area.Continue reading →
The number of foreclosures on the market over the last 5 years has risen dramatically. Currently in Illinois, there are areas where most or all of the sales are actually bank-owned foreclosures. For many buyers, the process of purchasing a foreclosure is unknown and there are a lot of myths out there that really don’t help or are flat-out wrong. The process of buying a foreclosure, bank-owned, corporate-owned or REO property has changed drastically just over the past few years. This post is intended to highlight the top 5 misconceptions about purchasing a foreclosure. As I’m sure you know, the market is constantly changing. It’s important that you work closely with an agent that specializes in foreclosures and bank-owned properties. I can help you safely navigate this process and have many years of experience in the foreclosure market. Call (630) 346-1041 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
#1. Foreclosures are Trashed and Need Lots of Work
While this is sometimes the case, it is actually more common in this market that foreclosures are in much better condition than you expect. Because there have been so many, banks have gotten the sale of these properties down to a process. The banks and asset management companies that sell these properties have realized that more can be made by elevating a distressed property to a repaired property. For this reason, many foreclosures are being repaired or even rehabbed before they are listed. You will still occasionally find your typical torn up foreclosure or a mold house or similar out there, but there are also very good odds that you’ll find one with much less work to do and that most likely can be lived in while it’s repaired.Continue reading →
