Hopefully you are working with a qualified buyer's agent to help you through the process of purchasing real estate. It is important to have a professional on your side. If you haven't found someone yet, interview a few agents you find through referrals or from this website. Talk over coffee (there is a great coffee shop right downtown Crete!), find out how long the agent has been in the business, what is their background, are they full time, do they know your area of interest, etc. Treat finding an agent like hiring someone to help you with one of the most important purchases in your life (except your are not paying the agent since realtor commissions are typically paid by sellers).
I am located in Crete and would welcome the opportunity to buy you a cup of coffee and learn more about your real estate goals. Check out my website if you want to search the mls - http://snoble.illinoisproperty.com... more
