Why work with a broker
Working with a broker is one of the best decisions you’ll make when buying or selling a home. Here’s why hiring a broker is so important for real estate investors Chicago.
The broker serves as a liaison between buyer and seller. This means that they can provide access to numerous listings. For instance, if you’re looking to buy a home, the broker will listen to your needs and find listings that match your criteria. They can also get in touch with the seller’s agent and set a schedule for home viewing.
If you’re selling a home, a good broker can help you attract the right buyers and sell your home at a high price.
2. Better access
Many luxury listings tend to be off-market listings. Meaning, they are not publicly advertised in order to protect the seller’s privacy. Most of the time, sellers and their agents will reach out to potential buyers within their networks before scheduling a private home viewing.
Working with a broker who has deep connections in Chicago’s neighborhoods will give you access to these exclusive listings. They can help you set an appointment and view the home. Doing so lets you cast a wider net, increasing your chances of finding the perfect home.
3. Strong negotiations
We know how to negotiate from a vantage point that a consumer doesn’t have. With our vast access to seller information, transaction history, financial information and an ability to network with other professionals, we can present a stronger offer based upon facts and knowledge
We protect our clients’ interests throughout the transaction. Working with us aligns you with an expert who observes a strict code of ethics. This means we are obliged to follow strict rules and laws that have been put in place to protect your seller’s position.
We can help you ensure all conditions of your contract are met and assist you in fulfilling your end of the contract, helping you every step of the way.
5. Legal documentation
There’s a large amount of legal documentation that goes on in real estate processes. If you approach the transaction without a broker, you run the risk of falling short of coming up with all the necessary paperwork. Brokers have flawless command of every legal document needed to move the transaction forward. This saves you a great deal of worry, making the transaction less stressful.
6. Peace of mind
Having peace of mind is priceless, especially when it comes to real estate transactions. The buying and selling process could take weeks or months to complete, and you’ll need the professional guidance of a broker during this protracted period.
