Are you thinking about buying a house that needs a little love?! One of the best parts about purchasing a fixer-upper is that you can snag a house for below market value and with a little elbow grease it can be turned into the house of your dreams!
It first starts out with us sitting down and chatting about what you are looking for. We pride ourselves on being knowledgeable when it comes to Chicago and the many different neighborhoods. We can talk to you about what makes most sense in terms of budget, location and what you are looking for in terms of the type of property. Our agents have direct access to the MLS and also have access to off market properties so that we can provide you with as many options as possible.
The next step is to hit the pavement! Your agent will pick you up and bring you around to see as many places as you’d like! We can help to point out hot spots in the surrounding areas and explain your public transportation options for each home. Because of the extensive amount of renovation projects each of our agents has been a part of, we can even give you a rough estimate of renovation costs on the spot. We can point out issues that could potentially be money pits and we can give you suggestions on what changes you could make to the property that would really impact the homes value. We won’t stop until we find you the perfect place. Whether it takes 5 days or 5 months, we will make sure that you are happy with the results!
We have a number of contractors who we have worked closely with that we can recommend to you for any type of project you may have. Whether you are thinking about just giving your kitchen or bathroom a facelift, or gutting an entire house down to the studs, we can connect you with the right people to get the job done. All of our agents have experience working with clients who flip multiple houses a year. We aren’t scared of a little work, and you shouldn’t be either! Let us use our knowledge and experience to help you find a diamond in the rough and transform it into the house of your dreams!
