New! Redfin Helps You Tour Short Sales in Chicago

Hey Chicago! We just made it easier to tour and buy short sales!

You can now tour short sales with your Chicago Redfin agent in the Northwest Suburbs and Downtown. If you find that perfect short sale and you want to make an offer, we’ll connect you to a short sale partner agent who specializes in the short sale process.

We know you want the flexibility to tour short sales with your Redfin agent, and to make offers if you find the right home, short sale or not. It’s true that the process of buying a short sale can be a bit of a grind, but we’re hoping that the federal government’s new program to streamline the short sale process will help speed things along.

To tour a short sale property, just click the “Go See This Home” button in the top right corner of the home’s listing details page.

Thanks everyone! We’re looking forward to helping you find that perfect home, whether it’s a short sale, a bank-owned property, or a traditional home purchase.

    Why only the NW burbs and downtown? What distinguishes short sales in those areas from the other areas of Chicago and the burbs?

    probably where they have “partner agents”

    cannot tour properties in Highland Park though. Is it not enough NW?
