The Chicago real estate market has been regularly making the news for several years now, often one story differing from the next. With many mixed messages out there, buyers are becoming much more discriminating when finally “taking the plunge” on a Chicago real estate purchase. In a real estate market loaded with turmoil, buyers want to ensure that they understand the nuances about a property and the details of its features, as well as the history and plan for a particular building when shopping for Chicago condos.
I’ve represented many buyers in this situation, some of them ready to buy quickly and others that wanted to take their time. I always work within a buyer’s schedule to make sure they get all of the information and have time to fully understand the details of a property and see them firsthand. I also work with potential buyers to explain the prospects for a property’s resale value and the rationale behind it.
I wanted to share the following testimonial from Ryan Witte, a client of mine who purchased a Chicago condo last year:
“As a first time home buyer, I was grateful to have Sheldon guide me through the process. It did not take long for him to get a thorough understanding of the type of condo I was looking for, and he spent a significant amount of time researching properties which fit my criteria. He was willing to schedule showings at any time that was convenient for me, and was always available to answer any questions.
I relied on Sheldon to notice the small details that a first time buyer might overlook, and he always made sure I considered everything with regard to a particular condo. He was always educating me on features that buyers often look for, and helped me understand factors which would effect re-sale value. We were on the same page as to the places that would pique my interest, and his hunches about what I would like were almost always right.
Sheldon is a tireless worker, and viewed well over 50 different units with me until I finally found the home I was looking for. I was able to make a choice I was comfortable with because of all that I had learned about the market during my search with him.
If you want to find a home in Chicago you will be happy with, you will find it with Sheldon.”
In a market like this one, buying real estate can’t be a fly-by-night decision, but it is a great time for well-situated buyers to make a move. There are a lot of Chicago condos for sale, and I’d be happy to help you narrow down the purchases that fit your need and budget as I was able to assist Mr. Witte with last year.
