Thanks for asking your question about the Kenosha real estate market. Overall, Kenosha has seen the same decline in home values as the majority of the country, although we have not seen the higher numbers of California and/or Florida. We fall in the 37% (approximate) percentile ... although depending on location some have realized as high as 41% in our area.
As of this year, we are watching the values of our homes reverse the roll of depreciation to appreciation and according to the statistics we are realizing about a 1% increase per month. It will be interesting to watch how the market moves over the next few months.
If I can help you with anything else, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A Listing Contract or Offer to Purchase isn't a gaurantee the home still won't foreclose and go to auction. There are a lot of variables in this type of transaction. Timing is one. If the short sale was started late in its cycle process, there may not be enough time to complete the process and the home will foreclose. If the Realtor isn't familiar with the short sale process then the chances of success diminish greatly and the home may foreclose.
When it comes to completing a successful short sale process its best to ask some questions up front before you commit to the transaction. Starting with asking if the Bank is committed to the short sale process?
Whether or not the Realtor doing the short sale has successfully completed short sales before?

Thank you for making an inquiry about Renting a Home for you and your children.
Due to our current economy and market I am confident that there are sellers/homeowners who would consider you as a potential candidate to rent a home in Kenosha. Depending on your situation, I would suggest you write a heart-felt sincere and honest letter to your prospective owner explaining how your credit score became low and what you are doing to improve upon your credit.
I believe there are homeowners who understand if you had great credit you would not be looking for a Rental but would instead be buying a home ... especially with interest rates and home prices at such all-time lows.
Not sure what your price range is for a rental, but if you would like I can provide you a "free" list of available Homes for Rent and then keep you updated on a regular basis as new homes for rent become available.
Hope this was helpful.

Your credit score should be fine to qualify but they will look at other things such as income and debt. I would talk to lender and see about getting pre-approved. I think you have a pretty good chance.... more
If the taxes are $3,000 for the year...then $80 is incorrect.I am not sure why it says that,but divide $3,000
by 12 months,and that would be your monthly tax fee.Is you have any other questions,feel free to contact me.Have a great day!... more
If the new job is pretty similar to the old one it won't hurt at all. In other words if you were a salesman for tires and then took a job selling snow shoes it is still a job in sales. Job longevity does not help a poor credit score.... more
If there are no pictures, the agent taking the pictures may have thought the property would sell better if no pictures were taken. The listing does state that the property needs repair. My advice would be to contact a local REALTOR and ask to see the property. It costs nothing to browse. ;)... more
