hoffman estates il: Hoffman Estates Illinois - What makes a good neighborhood? Lyn Sims (847)230-7324 RE/MAX Suburban - 08/22/08 09:08 AM
What Makes a Good Neighborhood?When you buy a house, you also invest in the neighborhood that surrounds it. The identity of a neighborhood may be as important to property values as the individual properties themselves. In a “planned community”, strictly controlled architecture governs a carefully crafted identity block after block. In a rural town, tree-lined streets and an old-fashioned town square preserve a disappearing way of life. In a large city, an older neighborhood's ethnic history has shaped its character and often drives its rejuvenation. It's important to know where a neighborhood has been—and where it's going—before you decide to buy. … (4 comments)

hoffman estates il: Roselle Illinois - 6 Common Problems that Spook Buyers - 07/06/08 07:24 AM
Today's potential home buyers with lots of homes to choose from can be easily spooked by disclosures and the results of property inspections - even when the shortcomings are typical for homes of a certain age.
In a jittery market such as this one, it's critical to give buyers tools and knowledge so they can decide which problems are serious.
Agents do represent their clients but I always insist that my clients accompany the home inspector so they can put the problems in perspective. Anything a handyman or an electrician could fix in a few hours isn't really worth worrying about!  Buyers should be there to … (2 comments)
