Cheap suburban fixers

Have any investors here on the chicago REI group checked out the foreclosure situation in Park Forest, IL. A once thriving community of affordable housing has been reduced to a haven for investors and great deals for 1st time home buyers. Housing that can be bought for 10-20 cents on the dollar.
I would like to hear the opinions of the other investors about this area



Hello, I am a new REI in Chicago and I am in the process of getting started. I am the step of looking for a good mortgage broker and I am also looking to start networking. I am very excited/ a little nervous. Just wanted to say hi and also see when you all might be meeting so I can get a few pointers.


Giving this a try

I'm new to the forum and real estate. I reside on the south side of Chicago near Midway airport. I'm not a Chicago native, but have lived in Logan Square, Lakeview, and River West within the past 6 years. I currently work in Lincoln Park as well.

I'd like to meet some people established in this industry. Even if you're not established, I'd like to exchange ideas or talk if it would benefit either one of us. I would even volunteer my free-time if it amounted to anything (as an apprentice would). I'm not your typical run-of-the-mill individual either. I'm quite talented in a wide variety of things. I'm merely missing direction and opportunity to make the income I desire.

Feel free to PM or email me with any comments, interests, opportunities or merely networking.


A Not So New Newbie

Hi everyone, I have been following Dean for some time, but was afraid to jump in. Not anymore. I guess it takes some longer than others. I live in the Edgewater community on the northside of Chicago and looking to network with others to really get things going.

I need to gather a good team to work with, and willing to work with others for team efforts at acquiring and selling real estate. I too want to know when and where the next investing meeting is.

Anyone can e-mail me at anytime.

Here's hoping to do some business soon.

Highlights from the meeting

Hello Julie.

Hello Julie:
What would you know about buying cash flow notes from Banks, and private owners ? I currently reside in the DuPage county area and am looking into the huge advantages of buying bank owned Cash Flow notes and Tax Lien Certificates.
I would like establishing contact with anyone from my area in hopes of moving forward and establishing a home base group of like minded investors and individuals like you. Do you think that would be something you might be open to ?



Hi, my name is Bill. I am new to the group, as of today. I bought Deans CDs a few months ago; but just now have the time & drive to start using the info: I use to own up to a few months ago, a Program based Housing business, I housed at-need populations, such as Veterans, HIV impacted, Battered Woman, and Mental Health challenged individuals. I was self-funded.I should of owned the property instead of leasing!I was doing fairly well, until I listen to someone I trusted at the time, who suggested that I change my client base, which was a big mistake on my part!Any way. My goal is to house (600) people over the next (24) months, sharing a room for program based Housing. My projected gross would be around 3.4 Mil, my operating expenses around 1.2Mil, Netting around 2mil.I am looking for people to partners with for this opportunity. Also I am seeking other like minded people to Network with, as well as learn from. I would be available to meet with prior notice any time. if someone is interested they can contact me directly @(773)495-0882.

Hi again! I didn't realize my email address would be hidden. Please PM me. Thanks!


Getting started

I'm from the Chicago area also, South side of Chicago. I had always wanted to be into real estate but never put the effort in to doing it. I would love to meet people like yourself who motivated and willing. I'm new at this so which means I still have a lot to learn. Maybe we can chat sometime about meeting up with people who can push both of us in the right direction. GOD BLESS. And good luck on the success.

First Time Out

Hi,my name is Fred and I`ve live in Chicago all of my life.I`m totally new to this and I`m strictly interested in the Wholesale aspect of the RE Business. I would love to network with folks in Chicago in hopes our associations can be mutually beneficial. Hope we can chat soon.

With Kind Regards,

Fred Moore

Hello Team. I'm Sean. I'm located in the south suburbs of Matteson, IL. I'm looking to build a team of strong like minded professionals to make our dream work. I'm also new but I've been making aggressive offers to motivated sellers and I've been building up my buyers list. I feel very close to closing out my first deal. I'm trying to connect with a person who has experience as a loan officer, property management, other real estate investors etc. I'm also looking for a real estate lawyer who I can be referred to once I lock down a deal. Lets see how we can make this a win/win for all of us!
