Just a couple days ago the City of Elgin planning commission had to vote on a big issue.  It is an issue that affected people in Bartlett and Elgin.So, what was it.   Well for the last couple of Months the owners of Villa Olivia have gone before the commission to get them to approve a measure to allow them to have a subdivision consisting of 279 townhouses, 96 single-family homes. and another section of 11 acres to be commercial space.    This plan seem simple, but when really looking at this it would have done harm to the local area. 1. People in Elgin along Hwy 20 say the traffic is bad right now.  I have people that have told me not only is the traffic bad, but in many areas it is not safe.  Having over 700 more cars driving along this section of Hwy 20 would not be good. 2.

Thankfully we're seeing a much needed correction in the sub prime lending market.  Little more than a year ago, people were getting loans that had no business getting them.  Unfortunately, because of the knee jerk reaction of the industry, people with marginal credit that probably deserve a change to get a home are having difficulty getting financing.  But it's not the end of the world.  Loan packages are still available, and there are some simple things that can be done to help boost credit scores.  So first time home buyers - take heart.  All hope is not lost.

Yeah, it's no mystery that real estate is slow. How could you not know? It's in the news almost every day. And with what's happening in the sub prime mortgage market, it's probably going to get worse before it gets better. Selecting the right agent to sell your home just got a lot more important.
