Arlington Heights Condo Site

A new site dedicated to Arlington Heights Condos has been launched. This site will include details about each condo neighborhood that is larger than 40 units. The reason for the cut off is that there is not reliable information to be gathered about many of the smaller communities.

Information will include photos, number of units, amenities, if there are garages, size of units, and more. Market data about these neighborhoods will include closed sales, number of active listings, number of pending listings, and more.

The goal is to provide an in depth look into each condo community to allow buyers to make an informed decision. will also provide sellers the opportunity to market their home directly to highly interested buyers. Listing from Suburban House Hunters Team will all be featured on this site and featured listing packages for By Owner sellers will also be offered.

Take a look at the page for Mallard Cove Condos in Arlington Heights for an example of the information that will be provided. There is also a market update for Mallard Cove posted to help show the type of market information.

Ways to save a few bucks each month

Everyone can use a few extra dollars each month with prices for just about everything increasing much faster then wages. Found this post about Money Saving Tips for around the Home and thought it was worth sharing.

Here are a few other tips that are pretty easy for saving money while driving.

- Make sure your tires have proper tire pressure

- Remove any extra weight from your car, check the trunk for starters

- Make sure you are using the correct gas octane that your car calls for

- This one will seem silly, but make sure your car is clean. Dirt increases friction/drag and thus reduces your gas mileage.

- Roll up the windows when at high speeds. Leaving your window open increases drag and kills your gas mileage.

- Never thought I would support this idea, but slow down. Higher speeds use more gas then lower speeds. More important is accelerate a little slower and you can see large savings for your city driving.

Hope these few tips help save you a few dollars.

Arlington Heights Rentals

The Suburban House Hunters Team has added rental services to their residential real estate services menu. So if you are looking for a rental in Arlington Heights Illinois make sure to visit their site.

Rentals can include apartments, condos, townhouses, or single family homes. Many people don't realize that they can hire the services of a real estate professional that will have access to rentals. The real estate agent will be able to save the customer time and many time money as they are willing to negotiate for their client. The reason a real estate agent will be able to negotiate a better deal is they are an independent party. They will never live in the home or deal with the landlord again so they can be more aggressive then most renters will be.

Best of luck with your rental search.
