For my birthday I treated myself to a spring haircut. Being born on St. Patrick's Day is a bit strange since everyone is celebrating!  With contracts pending but no solid closings scheduled,  money is a bit tight so I decided to return to my favorite price conscious hair salon.     I discovered this salon at the beginning of the year after going for my weekly chiropractic adjustment.  On Monday's & Wednesday's all haircuts are $8.00.  Considering the prices I used to pay this was a bargain.  This is just for the haircut and they dry it so no fancing styling or shampoo but considering I was on my way to the healthclub it was perfect. Rosa's Salon is located at 440 Weber Rd., in the Carillion Court which is next to the Carrillion subdivision just past I-55 interchange. My stylist was Ilda...

Sometimes our past credit issues can catch up with us when we are ready to purchase a home. I've worked with buyers with past credit problems, and as long as they did everything my lender asked of them, we ended up sitting next to each other at the closing table.

An opportunity like this does not come around too often. With the recent signing of a major housing stimulus bill, it's now a great time to close on your first home. On July 30, 2008, the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 was passed, which includes a new, temporary tax credit as an incentive for first-time homebuyers. With this bill, first-time homebuyers may qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500 for the purchase of a principal residence.

This weekend I had the opportunity to tour "The Townes at Creekside" in Romeoville. This is a new construction community just off Weber Rd. that is in the final stages of completion. The Townnes is a Pasquinelli community of nearly 200 townhomes arranged around a central circular drive. As with most builders, Pasquinelli is offering some great incentives if you use their preferred lender Washington Mutual. In some cases - the discount is over $30,000!!! One of the great deals they have their is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom townhome with a basement. There aren't a lot of upgrades in this unit but it's one of the few in the community with a basement. The regular price is $239,514 - but if you use their lender you can purchase it for $207,000. That's a savings of over $32,000 dollars! If you'd ...

I was out showing Romeoville townhomes this morning. Priced between $160,000 and $200,000. Just off of Weber Road. The subdivision is newer, under 10 years of age, and there are about 8 units on the market. We've now seen four...and two of the properties are possibilities. However...one of the units that we walked into required us to wear dark sunglasses! The home was painted with bright oranges, yellow-greens and red. And, you saw all those colors at once. The property has been on the market over 300 days, and I'm betting that every buyer who walks in...turns around and walks out. But, that's a mistake. The unit has a great floor plan and as far as we can tell, it looks larger than the others and it's reasonably priced. But not sold. Which means that my buyers should be able to get it ...
