Schaumburg, IL Real Estate News

I have clients asking about crime in certain areas of Illinois. Now I have a nice web site that keeps track of this type of information. The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program was created by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation. The FBI eventually was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics. Thankfully, there are several statistical publications where people can view the statistics. The web site is located at: http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/ucr.htm

Glens of Schaumburg Sales, Lyn Sims, Schaumburg Area Real Estate, Northwest Suburban Chicago IL Subdivision summary about the Glens of Schaumburg Manor homes/Coach homes in Schaumburg IL.

Why Now is a Smart Time to Buy! Now is a great time to buy a home, say the financial gurus at the Wall Street Journal.The Journal calls it a buyers market and offers these suggestions for first-timers getting their feet wet. While their advice is solid, it's not revolutionary, but some potential customers might find it reassuring.Remember this is a place to live not a stock market investment, they say. Lenders want buyers to spend no more than 28 percent of their gross monthly income on mortgage payments, real estate taxes, and home insurance. Buyers shouldn't count on stretching further because lenders won't approve their loans. Cash is king.  Having enough money in the bank to pay closing costs that are typically an additional 2 percent to 3 percent of the price of the home is necessa...

Need a Reason to Sell Your Home?  American home owners sell and move, on average, every five to seven years.  Why do they move?  People who have lived in the same home for the past 30 years have a hard time understanding this phenomena. They are shocked that people move so often, but I know one thing for certain: Their day to sell and move will come as well. Here are the top 15 reasons why people sell and move: 1) Home is too small.   First-time home buyers often outgrow their "starter" homes.  Increased family size is the main reason home owners say they need a larger home. 2) Upgrade. The grass is greener on the other side.  People often want what they don't have and long for a bigger, more expensive and grander, upscale home. It's the American way! 3) Fix purchase error.  Owners migh...

A nice tool for comparing school districts. The Daily Herald has produced a chart of the different school districts. It shows the percentage of graduating high school seniors who are academically prepared to succeed in first year college courses. The info is listed by county, so it makes it easy to find information. The last column displays the districts' percentage of graduating seniors prepared to succeed in first year college level courses. Excel file version available: http://www.dailyherald.com/packages/2007/schoollfinance/chapter10excel.xls

The Schaumburg area has seen a lot of changes in the last couple of years.  As a result, property taxes have risen.  The cost of keeping a house can be pretty expensive.  Home owners can refinance now and lower their monthly payments.  If you're interested in lowering your payments, please fill out the following questionaire and email it back to me.  You can download the questionaire at Refi_Questionaire
