FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS
First time buyers are welcome here.
If you want to purchase or sell Real Estate for the first time we want to help you. It is so important to get your questions answered and become comfortable with becoming a home owner.
What are the steps? What happens when you want to stop throwing away your money on rent. Do you know when you are renting you are handing over the funds to your landlord and paying his or her mortgage?
The first step is getting a preapproval. If you do this you will be ready to purchase a house or condo when you find the right fit. There is no obligation when you talk to a lender or mortgage broker, it only set you up to be able to pull the trigger when you see that perfect home.
Coldwell Banker Evanston has trusted lenders on had to help you find out how much you should spend on that first property and just how much will it cost you each month. You want to know what to expect don’t you? Often it runs nearly the same as you are paying in rent each month.
The next step is finding the property that you want to call home. Coldwell Banker Evanston has affiliates in any community in Chicago land that will help you. Coldwell Banker Wilmette, Coldwell Banker Skokie and Coldwell Banker Rogers Park to mention a few.
We set up a personalized search to help you see the available properties as they hit the market for sale. Questions are asked such as how many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want. Some people consider features to be a make or break part of the transaction.
Many people want central AC, an elevator or maybe built in laundry is a must have for you. Some people are very concerned with the location. You might want to be within walking distance to public transportation. Lots of folks take the Metra or the EL to work and leave your car in the garage. Do you want a garage or off-street parking at all?
At the next step is when we start sending you properties. They come directly from the MLS or Multiple Listing Service. The homes we send you come to you in box much faster than you would using Zillow or Trulia or any other online service.
The minute the homes hit the market for sale you get an email with all the details. Pictures, room dimensions, prices and all the information you need to see if this is a right fit. From this you can choose what suits your needs.
You can then call, email or text us at Coldwell Banker and we will set up a personalized showing. Before your work day starts or weekends or after work, you tell us. An experienced Real Estate Broker will accompany you and show you the home and answer all your questions.
