I saw a house that is for sale and has another real estate company's sign out
front. Do I call the number & agent on the sign?
The sign outside the house is the listing brokerage also known as the listing
agent and they represent the interests of the seller of the house. While you can
call them and they can also represent you as the buyer, it is in your best interest to
have an agent looking out for only your interests. As a member of the Multiple
Listing Service of Northern Illinois, your Blue Fence agent can show you any
house anywhere in Chicagoland that is for sale with any real estate company. Just
give your agent the address of the house you saw for sale and they can schedule
a showing and send you additional information.

Why use a Blue Fence agent?
Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few
years in between each purchase. Even if you've done it before, laws and
regulations change. That's why having an expert on your side is critical. Blue
Fence agents use the latest technology and receive hours of training to best
represent you.

What is the first thing step for my home search?
Get pre approved for a mortgage with a lender. This will show you what your
monthly payment will be and the price range of homes you can afford. Once you
do find a home, having a pre approval will also strengthen your offer and show the
seller you are a serious buyer. This helps drastically if there are multiple offers on
a property.

How long does the entire process take?
This depends on a lot of factors. We have had clients move into their new homes
within two weeks of starting their home search and as long as four months. Talk
to your Blue Fence agent regarding your timeline and they can move the process
along to meet your expectations.

What area does Blue Fence cover?
Blue Fence has agents that represent buyers and sellers throughout all of the
greater Chicagoland area.
