Congratulations on your new Granite City Illinois home. I had a very fulfilling experience this week when we closed on a tidy brick ranch in Granite City, Illinois with buyers Walter and Nancy. The retired couple, who moved back to this region from another state, found me on the Internet and asked if I could help them realize their goal of finding a new home near Nancy's elderly mother. "You actually answered your phone and were willing to help us," they marveled. I told them I always try to answer the phone and I love to work in Granite City -- a steel-manufacturing town close to the Mississippi River in Madison County, Illinois where buyers can get a lot of house for their money. They were very focused on their needs and what they liked and didn't like about potential homes. They also...

I'm waiting right now to find out if an offer my buyer made on a home this morning has been accepted. The place he chose -- a nice all-brick ranch in a very cute neighborhood in Granite City, IL -- is a foreclosure property.  But here's the great thing about this particular house -- it's part of the Freddie Mac HomeSteps program. Freddie Mac is a GSE -- a government sponsored enterprise -- chartered to stabilize the mortgage industry and focused on making housing more affordable. Simply put, it buys mortgages from lenders to free up money for more mortgages at the lender level. HomeSteps is a program created by Freddie Mac to make its foreclosure properties move much more quickly so inventory can be reduced. Homesteps offers cleaner and more well-maintained homes than usual bank-owned p...

UPDATE: Monday, January 4, 2010, FEMA announced that new flood insurance maps for the St. Louis area will be delayed until at least 2011. That means property owners in low lying parts of Madison County won't be faced with steep increases in flood insurance premiums for at least another year.  Senator Dick Durbin and Congressman Jerry Costello had asked FEMA for the delay to give officials more time to devise a plan for the levees and to begin any needed repairs.    Following is the original blog post: There's not much reason to think about the mightly Mississippi River during the course of daily, modern life here in St. Louis' Illinois suburbs, My 93-year-old mother-in-law grew up on a farm on Chouteau Island in the midst of the Mississippi. In those days the rushing riv...
