What can I say? A Ravenswood Manor neighbor has fallen on hard times. Up the North Branch of the River without a paddle? Will it taint our real estate market?
Hopefully it will be a positive thing for Illinois real estate once we get (finally) a competent Governor in office. We need pragmatism when dealing with housing and business in the State of Illinois... not platitudes and bribes.
Look out local Congressman, Aldermen and Cook County Commissioners... people are going down left and right and the public is getting fed up.
The most upsetting thing about this; working with middle class families that pay every new tax and fee that these state and local officials come up with when owning, buying and selling their primary homes. At the same time elected officials and their spouses make money in real estate deals in their districts with developers and donors and claim they have no conflict of interest.
