I've looked at about 10 so far, and sort of fell in love with the last one I toured this weekend. Very nicely updated 2/2, very close (but not too close) to the train and lots of asian restaurants and whatnot. Not the most hopping area but more residential and quiet, and I was promised zero parades in front of my house.

Listing is $384.5k. A cash offer above list fell through after it had been on the market for just a few days. There was a lot of traffic at the open house (11 tours they said?)

So I'm going to offer $385.5k. Only contingency should be inspection/appraisal. I'm not gonna go nuts though.

Nice! Also buying a house right now for around 240k.

I'm picking a loan now, and am very annoyed at how hard it is to get a quote, and also how hard it is to compare quotes.

You'd think there would be an online calculator for this, but I guess they feel like APR is all you need. APR is not all I need. I'm an actuary, dammit.

I just spent like an hour creating a spreadsheet that calculates an "APR" that assumes I sell in 5 years. Don't ask me why that took an hour. I am getting actustupid in my old age.

Lots of Asian restaurants? Does the name of the town rhyme with Bargyle?

I used to take that El all the time (I'm closer to the Metra on Lawrence, so now I take that).

Was the place east of the El or West of the El?

I have friends who live east of the El, I've always lived west of it.
