The cathedral ceilings make it perfect for informal gatherings. There are sliding doors to the deck and a large fenced backyard.
Four spacious bedrooms including the master suite are located upstairs. Freshly painted interior & new carpeting throughout make it ready…so MOVE RIGHT IN!
Maize was recently reviewed by Stacey Klouda on The Buzz and she glowed saying this place has “something to satisfy the Mexi-tooth in all of us”. I like that Mexi-tooth term- and I am sure I have an active one!
This place has all the flavor of authentic Mexico. It is small, congenial, and colorful. The food features rice, beans, and guac “all worthy of standing alone”. Beyond this there are delicious tortas, huarachis, and burritos. And even pumpkin blossoms (flor de calabacitas) and huitlacoche– don’t ask, just eat it and enjoy. OK you asked- it is this black pungent stuff that is actually corn smut.
This hole- in – the wall is affordable, cozy and here are some pics from Yelp:
“It’s barely Feb 1st and already buyers are out looking and sellers are putting their homes on the market. The mild winter has helped as well as some stabilizing of prices. We are fortunate to live in this market where jobs are more stable and we have businesses to help keep the market more stable than other areas in the state.”
One stat that stands out for the local real estate market is that median home prices are only down .36% while the statewide figure is down 9.2%. Beyond this Champaign and Savoy median prices were up 4.4%.
Here is what this means if you are looking at the Champaign Urbana real estate market:
Sellers: Inventory is clearing out and spring is a good time to get your home on the market. Call Sharon Harkness today and she will be glad to give you some help on getting your home ready to sell.
Buyers: Prices are still low, mortgage rates are a give away- mortgage rates for Champaign Urbana can be as low as 3% for a 15 year fixed! Beyond this there are many home on the market and buyers are usually able to negotiate a very good deal.
You can certainly fly from Willard Airport to anywhere. The American Eagle service will connect you to Chicago (ORD) or Dallas (DFW) and connections are great. And the nearby Bloomington terminal is easy and the parking is free. Sorry east and southeast travelers- BMI is about to loose AirTran.
But it is always possible to make the journey to Chicago, Indy or even St Louis by land and fly from there at a reduced fare. The drive is not bad and there are two decent options for shuttles.
1. LEX- its a bit pricey but it works and the Lex site is easy to use.
2. My pref for Chicago is Peoria Shuttle, or Peria Charter Coach Company. They have several runs each day from the campus area that will get you quickly and cheaply to Ohare or Midway. Again their site is simple and the service is good. Right now a ride to one of the airports is $22- a steal!
