3 Reasons to Team Up With a North Shore Realtor On YOUR Home Purchase!

As many potential buyers begin to contemplate a home purchase in 2014, it becomes essential to weigh your options and decide if this is something you want to seriously pursue in the new year. If so, teaming up with a reliable, knowledgable North Shore Realtor should be tops on your list of to-dos! While the majority of home searches are conducted online, in the comfort of your own home, there are still many important reasons as to why a real estate professional is imperative for exploring North Shore real estate. Whether you're searching on Chicago's North Shore for a hip high-rise development somewhere in the center of everything or you're more interested in finding a family home in a quiet, safe community, here are just a few ways I can help:

1. Better Access to Listings. Sure, you can surf nearly any nearby listing online, view photos, take visual tours and find out basic information - But very rarely will a homeowner or real estate professional allow you into the home to see it for yourself without a North Shore Realtor at your side. This, of course, is primarily due to safety reasons. However, real estate professionals work for YOU - They can find other homes that meet your strict criteria, make showing appointments at properties that strike your fancy and use their connections to discover what homes may not yet be on the market but are being readied for sale, so their clients can have first crack at them. They can also find out information about a property that might not be as readily available on the internet and call the listing agents to discuss concerns or issues on your behalf. 

2.  Contract Handling and Negotiating. Some might go so far as to say that there is an art form to the many contracts that come with real estate buying and selling. It is essential to keep these documents organized and kept safely, and a real estate professional does just that. Additionally, they negotiate the purchase on your behalf - Anything from price to things that may have come to light during a home inspection. Acting as a liaison between the buyers and sellers, a good North Shore Realtor works alongside their clients to ensure as stress-free of a process as possible. 

3. Those in the Real Estate Business are Held to High Professional Standards. From the National Association of Realtors (R) to local chapters, real estate professionals are held to high ethical standards. This means that not only is it their job to ensure a transaction goes smoothly, it is their duty. As licensed professionals, our very career and livelihood depends on our professional standards and ethics as we are bound by license law. Additionally, many real estate professionals rely on personal recommendations and referrals from past clients - So we want to ensure that every job is one well done!
