prairie pointe: What's the market doing in Round Lake subdivisions? - 07/03/11 01:29 AM
I have updated the market summary for Valley Lakes & Prairie Pointe subdivisions in Round Lake.  The news is not great for those that bought when prices were high.  Many of the neighbors have landed on hard times and there have been several short sales and foreclosures.
On the other hand it is a buyers paradise!  Newer homes for little money, most in very good condition.  If you are interesting in buying or sell in any part of Round Lake email or call me at marilyn@northernillinoishomes or call 847.668.7630.  Also you can log into our website .
