Good News for Homebuyers

by Thomas Makinney

We experience it in driving, in parenting, and in lawmaking.

A common result of fear or a sudden scare is an over-corrective action which can end up doing more harm than good.
Saving-for-a-Home.jpg
Luckily for homebuyers, legislators and lenders are beginning to right the ship. In the wake of the meltdown in 2008, drastic measures were taken to avoid accusations of irresponsi
ble lending practices, shutting out a large market of potential buyers.  Investors with all cash in hand were acquiring homes that new families or young couples wanted, but the difficulty of securing a loan put them just out of reach.  Now, a final ruling has been made that will loosen the grip on mortgage qualifications.  


 

first-time-home-buyer_537.jpg

A proposition that would require homebuyers to put a minimum of 20% down has been ruled out, making the American dream of owning a home much more attainable for low to mid level income buyers or individuals with less than perfect credit.  Institutions that have been operating stringently out of fear may now breathe easier, a s the perimeters for what constitutes reckless or questionable lending practices are more clearly defined, and include a more forgiving attitude than we have seen.


The ability for real people and hard working individuals to once again be homeowners is in part a large contribution to the recovery of our economy. If you’re ready to achieve your dream of owning a home, contact the Gracik Makinney Group today at 630-441-5570 to discuss your options!

Elmhurst Teen Completes Wilderness Leadership Course

by Thomas Makinney

If Bear Grylls were in charge, fourteen year old Elmhurst resident Nerjia Sepkus would be a top tier CEO.

Nerjia recently completed the kind of leadership training that makes most corporate leadership retreats look like a weekend trip to the spa (and let’s be honest, some are).  But what if leadership trainees were actually really challenged, taken out of their comfort zones, left to their own instincts and personal analysis? No smart phones, no computers, no distractions or crutches.  Without Siri and Goowilderness.jpggle Maps, the teens who successfully complete this course are one step ahead of their peers.


The National Outdoor Leadership School sends 14 and 15 year olds on a challenging backpacking journey through Wyoming for an entire month. In addition to learning about the outdoors, wildlife, and survival, the teens also exercised judgment, risk management, and of course leadership. The confidence teens gain from completing such a challenge is invaluable and transfers to every facet of their life, including school and work.


This non-traditional leadership course has 221,000 graduates since it was first established in 1965. Hopefully Nerjia’s cool tales from the trail will inspire more Elmhurst teens to get out there and challenge themselves, too!
