•. Choose a full- time Buffalo Grove Realtor
These days, it seems that almost everyone is a realtor. Some Buffalo Grove realtor do it as a hobby, and some do it as a full time job. I do it almost 24/7. By hiring a full time Buffalo Grove realtor, you help assure that their search for your new home is full time as well. During your search for the perfect home, most Buffalo Grove realtors will be looking for the home on the multiple listing service that meets all of your criteria.
I go beyond that. Many times when I have a buyer in a specific price range and they can't find a home that they are truly in love with, I go the extra step. I ask the realtors in my Buffalo Grove office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, if anyone has a listing that they know that is coming on the market soon. If this networking proves unsuccessful, I take it one step further and ask my close friends and colleagues I trust in the other Buffalo Grove offices in town to see if they know of any listing that is going to meet the needs of my buyers. Although inventory is high, and you are probably laughing to yourself that a person can't find a home in today's market, many times the best homes do not even hit the market
• Choose a Buffalo Grove Realtor that wants what you want and communicates with you often
Will your realtor listen to your needs and wants and understand that during this process your needs will change.
It took me 2 years to find my dream home, so I completely understand! I work hard to ensure each move and home purchase/sale is as smooth and pleasant as it can be. Buying a home can be stressful, so my goal is to take some of that stress away.
• Choose a local Buffalo Grove Realtor.
It is important to choose a realtor who knows the area like the back of her hand. Your Buffalo Grove Realtor should be completely versed in the schools, subdivisions,school districts, boundary lines, commuting, type of water the home uses, conservancy laws, etc
Let me give you an example. Suppose a school district changed boundaries within the last few years. Many listing realtors are relying on old school information, and submitting incorrect schools or incorrect spelling of schools on the MLS sheets. This is happening more frequently today, especially with the influx of foreclosures and bank owned property on the market. The seller's bank hires the Realtor and this realtor may live and work hours from the property. If a buyer's realtor does not know the area, they will incorrectly rely on the listing agents mistakes.
When you are negotiating on behalf of your client, it is always better to be the one who is more knowledgeable about the area. If you are representing the buyer and the seller won't budge on the price, you always have the advantage if you have seen the inside of the comparables and the reason that they sold for the price they did. A local realtor has the upper hand in the negotiations.
A local realtor also knows the best deals since she has seen all of the homes and can compare which one is the best. Two weeks ago, my client just bought the hottest deal in town. It was one of the prettiest homes I have even seen and my clients bought it for a great price.!
