Homes and Real Estate in the Barrington and North Chicago area

The 3 most important words in real estate TODAY are:
Location - Location - Location
Exclusive - Buyers - Agent!

While any licensed real estate agent can be a 'buyers agent', an Exclusive Buyers Agent offers a higher level of service through their 100% commitment to home buyers.

You are about to make the largest purchase of your life. Which would you prefer: A 'part time' buyers agent, or an Exclusive Buyers Agent, 100% committed to serving and representing you, the home buyer?

An Exclusive Buyers Agent is a specialist in representing home buyers in all phases of the transaction. They work for an office that does not list homes for sale, so they never have anything to 'sell' you but their specialized knowledge and expertise in assisting home buyers.

Ask every Agent you talk to these questions:

Tips For Home Buyers

"Location, Location, Location"

A common and phrase in real estate is "Location, location, location". What does this phrase really mean?

"Location" is repeated to emphasize how important the location is to the resale value of a home. A careful choice of location can maximize positive influences on future resale value, and minimize potential negative influences.

A "bad" neighborhood has a drastic impact on the resale value of a home. Almost anything on a home can be repaired, replaced, or remodeled to make it more livable and/or more saleable. But the area around the home cannot be changed by one homeowner. The only way to sell a home in a bad or declining area is to reduce the price and even then it may take a long time to sell.

"Bad" can mean an area where the homes are not maintained properly. It can also mean a street that has become a heavy traffic artery where it is noisy, or dangerous to try to cross the street.

While no one can accurately predict that a neighborhood will remain the same or improve a sharp real estate agent is aware of trends in the area that might affect the neighborhood in the future. This is especially important if you are moving to a new city and unfamiliar with the area.
