So, you're thinking about relocating to the Naperville area; or buying your first home; or moving into a larger, upscale home; or perhaps downsizing to a smaller real estate property, a condo.
Where do you start? You might want to visit my website: www.MoveUPtoNaperville.com and set up a search to see what's available. And, if you put in a "fake" email...you won't get to see the listings!
Then you might want to talk to me. You can reach me at 630-961-2600, and if I'm out, please leave a message. I can tell you what areas have homes in your price range, and that will save you time and when you set up your search. Then, you'll want to talk to at least one professional loan officer. Why? To see what your price range is. To know what you can afford. Our new multi-board contract 4.0 requires a signed lender's statement on page 11. You can read more about that on my blog: www.MoveUPtoNaperville.blogspot.com
Once we know your price range, we can consider these DuPage County areas (Naperville, Lisle, Aurora, Downers Grove and Woodridge) or fast growing Will County places (Plainfield and Romeoville) which is where much of the new construction is. After you've received your pre-approval, and you've looked at the listings and picked out several that you like, we can go view the properties. Easy? Yes. Especially if you follow my recommendations. There are more recommendations and suggestions in my Blog. I guarantee that you'll have an experience without any weight gain or grey hair!
