Update 7Mar05: I ended up listing with Steven Somlar @ Baird & Warner 773 697 5555. Please call him with questions or to make an appointment.
Update 10Mar05: I have verbally accepted an offer and expect to sign the contract tomorrow.
Update 11Mar05: I have a signed contract, now have to get through the attorney, inspection, and mortgage contigency periods. Expect to close around April 22nd.
Update 15Mar05: The inspection is scheduled for this Saturday.
Update 17Mar05: Inspection is finished. I tried to stay out of the way so I don't know exactly what turned up, but I did hear the inspector advising about a few fixes (ever heard of sparking light switches?). We'll see what we get from the lawyers on Monday.
Update 23Mar05: They asked for some credits to fix electrical, plumbing and back door, plus wanted a small escrow until it can be verified that A/C works, plus went back and forth on radon testing. Hopefully this will all be settled tomorrow and the inspection contingency can end.
