This is not the first time I've written about this but the time is coming near when you will either do your taxes or look forward to receiving a tax refund. What will you do with it? Did you ever think that it could springboard you into a new home?

Using 3% down in Illinois 52% of that down payment (3%) is tax-deductible making the savings even better!
