Park Ridge IL Real Estate Broker License Courses in Illinois

Did You Know?

Park Ridge is a city in Cook County, Illinois, and a Chicago suburb. The population was 37,480 at the 2010 census. It is located 15 miles (24 km) northwest of downtown Chicago. It is close to O'Hare International Airport, major expressways, and rail transportation. It is a part of the Chicago metropolitan area, bordering three northwestern neighborhoods of Chicago's Far Northwest Side (Edison Park, Norwood Park, and O'Hare.)
As its name suggests, Park Ridge sits on a ridge. The soil is abundant with clay deposits, which made it a brick-making center for the developing city of Chicago. Park Ridge was originally called Pennyville to honor George Penny, the businessman who owned the local brickyard along with Robert Meacham. Later it was named Brickton. The Des Plaines River divides Park Ridge from neighboring Des Plaines, Illinois, which is west of Park Ridge. Chicago is south and east of Park Ridge, and Niles and unincorporated Maine Township are to its north.

What Types of Seller or Buyer Queries Do Park Ridge Licensed Brokers and Realtors Handle?

Are secured loans bad?

Secured loans are less risky for lenders, which is why they are normally cheaper than unsecured loans. But they are much riskier for you as a borrower because the lender can repossess your home if you do not keep up repayments.
Cons of secured loan
1.The loan is secured on your home, so you could lose your home if you cannot keep up your repayments.
2.Some loans have variable interest rates, meaning your repayments could increase. Make sure you know if the rate is fixed or variable.
Some secured loans have expensive arrangement fees and other charges. Make sure you factor this in when you work out how much the loan is going to cost you. Arrangement fees and other set-up costs should be included in the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (or APRC - this is similar to the APR for unsecured loans). Use the APRC to compare products.

With the degree program in place at all locations, Hondros Career Centers moved toward the Accrediting Council of Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) accreditation to strengthen its program and comply with state law. During the years 1990-2011, Hondros College continued accreditation through ACICS, as well as authorization through the State Board of Proprietary School Registration.
