Buy Better

Buy Better

You’ve heard it before: buying a home represents the biggest investment most people will ever make. Yet it’s also a very emotional purchase. Having a trusted expert by your side can help you make a smart investment and personally satisfying decision—one you’ll be happy with for years to come.

SCOPE OUT THE POSSIBILITIES

The Internet has changed home buying practices by offering instant access to multiple markets, styles of homes and price ranges. With a few keystrokes you can move across a wide geographic area, zero in on what seems attractive and begin sorting through options based on size, amenities and price. Yet shopping online gives you only part of the picture. You still need a professional to show you what you can’t see on your own.

THEN SEND IN THE PROS

How are the schools rated? Where are the better shops? How do you access public transportation? What is the community really like? Only a knowledgeable, professional agent can give you in-depth answers to these and other questions. The right agent will know the market, current trends and what kind of pricing is realistic with each property. And when it comes to negotiating for the home you want, there’s no substitute for the experience and judgment of a real pro, competing on your behalf. Ask about our track record of getting our clients the house they desired, on their terms. We are proud of the volume of our business that comes from repeat referrals. Over the years we have seen many clients become friends.

EXPAND YOUR BUYING POWER WITH THE KIM LOTKA GROUP

We know Chicago’s premier western suburbs. As local residents ourselves since 1975, we have enjoyed the benefits of living and raising a family here. We can tell you about the mindset and personality of each community and share information about specific properties that most other local agents can’t. If you see a home you absolutely love, we will be happy to approach the owners and see if they would consider making it available for sale. On the other hand, we can tell you about nuances of a neighborhood such as parking problems on youth sports days due to a local school or park or recent zoning changes that might make a property less desirable than it seems. Leverage our unmatched knowledge of the market to find the home you really want and make it yours.

To help you learn more about today’s buying process, we have included a few general resources here.
