Here in my part of uber suburbia the weekend was full of rain and more rain. The Fox River is rising faster and streets and viaducts were flooding rapidly. Not exactly the type of weekend where you want to be out and about but when duty calls what choice do you have.
A NEW LISTING - a regular no short sale no REO listing!!! What a lovely surprise. What made it even better was the sellers actually understood that pricing the home right the 1st time for a quick sale and making it up on the 2nd purchase would be the smart thing to do. So here it is folks....a regular market listing that would make any Realtor proud...so start calling your buyers who don't have the patience for a short sale and think REO's are for investors and rehabbers. With Oswego schools, a small sleepy village downtown yet close to big city amenities this home is perfect for your more exacting clients.

Information about Oswego from Wikipedia
Oswego is a village in Kendall County, Illinois, United States. As of the 2005 census, the village population was 23,089. Its population has nearly doubled since 2000, as the Chicago suburbs expanded westward into the area. It is currently the most populated town whose borders are within Kendall County.
The town was chosen as a location for the Fox TV series Prison Break in the episode "Manhunt". They used the Alexander Lumber building for most of the shoot. This could have been because the town's name serves as wordplay on the name that contains "as we go". However, the town's portrayal, specifically the bustling downtown scene, was largely inaccurate.
Oswego is located at 41°41′26″N 88°20′30″W / 41.69056°N 88.34167°W / 41.69056; -88.34167 (41.690681, -88.341778) and straddles the Fox River.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 6.7 square miles (17.3 km²), of which, 6.6 square miles (17.0 km²) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.3 km²) of it (1.50%) is water.
Downtown Oswego is home to historic buildings and homes, as well as shops and restaurants. The Village of Oswego launched a project to enhance and restore the historic downtown district. This project included significant infrastructure and street scape improvements, such as the installation of brick pavers, sidewalks, landscaping, and decorative streetlights and benches. Hudson Crossing Park, located along the Fox River, opened in October 2004. The Waubonsee Creek Promenade, which stretches from Main Street to the new park, is the final phase of the downtown enhancements.
Several festivals are thrown here including the annual Drag Strip Days, Prairie Fest, Wine on the Fox, the Christmas Walk, and the Memorial Day Parade. The Village also hosts the Oswego Country Market on Sundays from May through October.
In 2008, the Village celebrated its 175th anniversary. In 1833, the Pearce family settled along the banks of Waubonsee Creek and formed the first permanent white settlement of the area.
