Selecting a Chicago Real Estate Agent

Guidance for Residents Throughout Will County, Cook County, & DuPage County

Because finding the right home can be an incredibly difficult process, many people turn to real estate agencies to assist them in the home finding process. Real estate agents can significantly broaden your options and increase your chances of finding the ideal home you've been looking for.

On the other side of the coin, many individuals turn to real estate agents to help them sell their homes. A good real estate agent can increase the number of potential buyers and help you sell your home for your desired price. If you are seeking to buy or sell a home or piece of property and need assistance in selecting a real estate agent to help you do so, it is a good idea to speak with a real estate lawyer in Illinois today.

What to Look for in an Illinois Real Estate Agent

Real estate agents earn a living by making a percentage off the final sale or purchase price of the property. Because of this commission-based payment structure, some real estate agents will attempt to sell you on a home that is above your price range or they will avoid telling you about important information that would make the property less desirable.

When looking for an agent it is a good idea to ask your family or friends to refer you to an agent they have worked with in the past. It is also recommended that you start with a real estate agent before looking for a home, instead of finding a home and thencalling the real estate agent listed on the "For Sale" sign. In this way you can have an agent representing solely your interests, instead of the interests of the property owner.

The ideal real estate agent should have years of experience to draw from, be trustworthy, and have a strong working knowledge of the real estate market in which they operate.
