4 Things to Expect From Your North Shore Chicago Real Estate Agent When Buying A Home

When buying a home on Chicago's North Shore, the last thing you should be worrying about is whether or not you chose the right real estate agent. After all, it is the agent's job to walk you through the process and put their expertise to work. But do you know what to really expect from your agent?

As your North Shore real estate expert, I'm sharing four things you can expect from your agent when buying a home in Northbrook, Glencoe, Deerfield, Winnetka, Highland Park and the surrounding areas:

They will make it as easy as possible
Buying a home in Northbrook, Glencoe, Deerfield, Winnetka, Highland Park can come with its fair share of obstacles, but it is your agent's duty to eliminate them for you! The right agent will know which challenges can arise at what time and will negotiate on your behalf to make the process run as smoothly as possible.

They will find you the right home
It is no secret that inventory is limited in today's real estate market. However, your real estate agent will take into account your needs and deciding factors for moving and use them to find the best property. If there is an issue that will bar you from achieving your homebuyer goals, your agent will talk it through with you and discuss next steps.

They will honor your timeline
Many homebuyers today have a timeline in which they'd like to purchase and settle into a new home on Chicago's North Shore. For instance, if you're shopping for a home now, maybe it's because you want to be moved before the holidays. Your agent cannot always control the date of your move or speed up the loan approval process, but they will do everything in their power to honor your wishes and make it happen if possible.

They will be honest about prices
When you make an offer on a home, it is your agent's responsibility to talk over how they plan to have that price accepted by both seller and bank. You should trust your agent enough to help you formulate the best offer up front, being honest about what price may or may not win in the end.
