First Time Home Buyer? 9 Steps To Take Now

Are you looking to purchase your first home?

Here are 9 steps to take to help you decide whether you're ready to move:

1. Check the selling prices of comparable homes in your area. Do a quick search of actual MLS listings in the area where you would like to live so you have an idea of what you can get for your money.

2. Use our mortgage calculator to get an idea of what your monthly mortgage payments would be if you bought today.

Why You Should Never Buy a Home Without the Help of a REALTOR®

You wouldn't defend yourself from a lawsuit without the assistance of an attorney, nor would you diagnose and treat yourself for an illness . . . you would consult a physician.  Likewise, you should never make what may be the biggest financial decision of your life without the assistance of a professional REALTOR®.

The problem with buying real estate is that everybody seems to know just enough to be dangerous.  Your friends, relatives and co-workers are anxious to share what they know and give you advice.  The issue is that they 'don't know what they don't know'.  Following advice from non-professionals can cost you a boat load of money and perhaps even a really bad financial and life decision.

Another Great Time at The Northwest Side Irish Parade!

We had a great time as a participant in the Northwest Side Irish Parade!  It's one of our favorite events every year, as we honor our Irish roots and our over 75 years in the neighborhood!

The Northwest Side Irish Parade is a celebration of faith, family, and heritage, and has been held in Norwood Park for the past 15 years.

Looking forward to seeing you all there again in 2019!
