Are You A New Buyer?

Don't get marooned while buying your new home! Follow these steps.

๐Ÿ“ˆ Plot Your Course ๐Ÿ“‰

Prior to setting sail for a new home, recruit an expert crew and get pre-approved.

Recruit An Expert Crew

Choosing the right real property advisors to guide you through the real property transaction is more important than picking the wall color.

Buying real property is serious business! As a home buyer, you stand to lose large amounts of โฐ time and ๐Ÿ’ต money if your representation is not adequate.

We've helped hundreds of people in Chicago & the North Shore—Meet us.

Pre-Approval

We are partnered with the top mortgage lenders in our area who can assess your financial situation and write a letter of pre-approval.

A letter of pre-approval proves that you are a serious buyer—this letter indicates to the seller that you are NOT likely to abandon ship in case of a financial storm.

๐ŸŒ Establish Provisions ๐Ÿ‰

You may want or need a lot of things:

  • Lifestyle
  • Budget
  • Location
  • Space
  • Features
  • Amenities

However, transactions do involve compromise, so be prepared to adjust your sights. Be concerned with adequate coordinates and living quarters, before anything else.

Coordinates

๐Ÿ“ก What kind of locations must be near you?

  • Schools
  • Transportation
  • Neighborhood Amenities

Living Quarters

๐Ÿ‘‘ What type of space do you require?

  • Loft
  • 2-Flat
  • High-Rise
  • Townhome
  • Fixer-Upper
  • Condominium
  • New Construction
  • Single Family Home

โ›ต Set Sail, And Start Looking โ›ต

Your provisions will be used against our database to reveal potential matches.

We will meet in person to look at these and discuss your candid feedback.

Your expectations and the marketplace must converge—if not, this will become apparent, and we will course correct in search of better parameters.

So, You Think You've Found The One!?

Getting Ready

Typically, buyers preview about 10-50 properties before making an offer.

If you think you've found the one you love, other buyers probably love it too. ๐Ÿ’”

Don't worry—we're in a good position to fight for you, and we've got lots of fire power!

Taking Aim

To laser-focus on a target property, we use a Comparable Market Analysis:

Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) compares similar homes in the same school district within a half-mile radius. "Comparables" are homes that are currently on the market, or that have closed in the last six months.

Our CMA helps inform you about how certain properties stack up against each other.

Fire! ๐Ÿ’ฅ

You pull the trigger on how much to offer, and we fire off a contract for you.

This contract will include the pre-approval letter mentioned before.

The goal of the contract is to get you a great deal while also ensuring you win. 

Counterattacks

Your transaction may involve both negotiation and counter-offers before all parties are satisfied. Our crew will help you navigate any rough patches & negotiates on your behalf.

๐Ÿšง Home Inspection ๐Ÿšง

Inspection of the property by a licensed home inspector protects you against structural and material defects that are not detectable in a casual walk-through.

We work with inspectors to inspect everything including the electrical panel, outlets, furnace/boiler and AC compressors. The windows, doors, and floors are also inspected while the kitchen and bathroom fixtures are checked for functionality.

๐Ÿ“ Attorney Review ๐Ÿ“

Attorney review is a one-week period, in which your attorney can review the contract and suggest alterations. Alterations will usually focus on the language of the contract in an attempt to protect you from any undue obligations.

We'll help you and your attorney navigate any home inspection issues.

๐ŸŽŠ Closing ๐ŸŽŠ

โš“ Once your anchor is set, you will find yourself at the closing table!

To ensure that your anchor doesn't come loose, we will continue to work diligently with you, your lender, your attorney, and the seller's agent to close the transaction.

We hope that you ๐Ÿ’– your new home!

โœจ We fight for those keys that represent your brightest future yet! โœจ
