Location

Willow Springs subdivision in Urbana IL is located between I-74 and the University of Illinois off of Cunningham Road. Both the University and Carle Hospital are within a 5 to 10 minute drive from the neighborhood. Even closer is the relatively new Gateway Shoppes, a retail spot at the corner of University and Cunningham where you'll find restaurants, a frozen yogurt store, a local credit union, a nail salon and more. Downtown Urbana, with a plethora of additional shops and restaurants, is just another minute on the road. Worth noting is that Willow Springs is also located just outside of Urbana city limits. While it may take a little longer to have your roads plowed in the winter, the up side is that your real estate taxes are lower than they would be if you lived in town.

This looks like the perfect investment for someone who attends the University of Illinois to consider buying. It probable would make a good long term investment for a rental.

Hi Betty, you're exactly right. In fact, I'm currently involved with two transactions in this neighborhood where either the buyer or the seller was or is going to be a student at the university while living in the condo. The association by-laws currently allow renting, too, unlike a lot of condo associations in this area.

Thanks for commenting!

Shannon, this is a great hyper-localism post for Willow Springs in Urbana!  Condos are a great option for students going to a Big 10 school like the University of Illinois.  We have some units close to campus here in West Lafayette at Purdue University that are popular with students and faculty.
