What do You Want in Your New Home?
If you are thinking about buying Illinois or some other state, you are likely considering all the things you would like to have in your home – number of bedrooms and baths, size of house, type of yard, location, and much more.
Because of the weather, outdoor living may be a big part of the lifestyle, and so you may be looking at homes that can afford you that opportunity. If this is of interest, why not outdoor living and kitchens or a horse farm?
Another aspect of much of buying real estate is neighborhood crime rates, school ratings and air pollution and traffic.
You may need to do this research ahead of time, so you do not spend time looking in the area that you would never buy in.
Real estate agents should follow equal opportunity housing rules, so they may be shy to tell you away from some areas to keep complaint with regulations.
