Experience is Key

property search
This is a great market for home buyers — but that doesn’t mean it’s an easy market to navigate.
I can help find the perfect home and make the home buying process an enjoyable one. With mortgage rates at historic lows, attractive prices and a great selection of homes, there are plenty of opportunities in the Chicago real estate market! KoenigRubloff has developed sophisticated property search tools to help.

I will help define priorities by discussing your specific needs, wants and desires by sitting down with you and completing a Comprehensive Buyer Needs Analysis before I start showing you properties. That way, I’ll have a much better idea of what you’re looking for and take into account the priorities placed at the top of your list.
How much is too much? How much is not enough? How do I factor in the Asking Price, Property Location, Property Condition, Market Conditions, and Contract Terms?. Those are the kinds of questions I can help you answer as your trusted advisor.

I’ll prepare a written offer on the property you choose to purchase and include the terms approved by you, and present your purchase offer directly to the seller’s agent.  
First Time Buyer?
Since your home will most likely be the largest investment you will ever make, it's important to stay organized and focused throughout the process. Whether you are downsizing or upgrading, I will be there with you every every step of the way.

Pre-approval for a home loan is a good gauge of how much you can borrow and it shows home sellers that you have the backing to buy. Know your total budget, which not only includes the price of the home but also closing costs and fees. Closing costs include taxes, lender fees and title fees a homebuyer pays at settlement. Title insurance protects against losses and legal expenses you may incur should a claim arise and question your ownership.

Also consider post-purchase expenses such as moving fees, security systems and furnishings, property taxes, utility bills, etc.

Anticipate your future needs, such as will your family be growing or will your job location be changing? Prioritize your list and decide what features are a must have and what amenities can be sacrificed. Having a vision of what you want makes it easier to communicate what you are looking for.
