Looking to buy a home in Chicago? You’re in good hands. This is what we do seven days a week, fifty-two weeks of the year.
And these are the services we offer our clients;
TALKING IT OVER
Before doing anything, we will sit you down and find out what you want from the process. Obviously, we know you are looking to buy a home. But this is where we have a face to face chat, in real space and actually get to know you and what your priorities are.
GET YOUR LOAN PRE-APPROVAL
We can help all our clients get pre-approval for a loan.
Being pre-approved for a loan is an important next step. Use our calculator tool to find out what you might be able to borrow.
Once you have a figure in mind, our agents will suggest a lender or a professional mortgage adviser to you.
CHOOSING A HOME
This is the bit that our team will be able to assist you the most with!
Browse our available properties. Read our guide to the neighborhoods in Chicago. See our section on the different kinds of homes available, from condos to town houses.
MAKING YOUR OFFER
Once you have fallen in love with your chosen home, next you will make an offer.
We can help with this process and talk you through what the implications of it are.
INSPECTING YOUR HOME
Getting an inspection is highly advised. This process takes between one and three hours and should show you what work may still need doing. You will then be able to negotiate with the seller about this.
Also, if you are buying a condo, then you will be able to see all the bylaws and other factors involved in the acquisition.
GETTING YOUR LOAN APPROVED
Hopefully, this will happen without any hitches. But your advisor will be able to inform you more about this process.
Your chosen advisor can also help you with the unexpected questions a lender may ask you.
THE FINAL WALK THROUGH
The final walk through is done either the day before, or the morning of the closing.
You will inspect the property again and ensure that any work has been done to your satisfaction.
After that, there is some form signing to complete.
And hopefully, that should be that – welcome to being a homeowner in Chicago!
