THE SELLER HAS AN AGENT, SHOULDN'T YOU?

Why would you buy real estate in Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Troy Collinsville or throughout Madison County or St. Clair County, Illinois without the help of a buyer's agent? Call Nancy Milton at 618-791-8007 to learn more about having your own dedicated representation in the buying process.

Did you know that the agent whose name is on the For Sale sign in front of the home you just drove past is working for the seller? That agent is obligated to work hard to get the best price possible for their seller's home -- from you, the buyer! In new construction homes, the agent at the development also works for the seller/builder.

You are allowed to have your own agent in a transaction -- a Buyer's Agent.

A Buyer's Agent is someone who you have chosen to represent you in the purchase of your new home. Nancy will help you with these steps:

1.) Your Buyer's Agent will help you find homes that fit your needs and satisfy many of your additional "wants."

2.) Next your Buyer's Agent will set appointments for you to see those homes during private showings and discuss the pros and cons of each home with you on site.

3.) When you have picked the home that is best for you, your Buyer's Agent will research the target property and work with you to decide on an offer price based on a wide variety of variables.

4.) Nancy will then present your offer to the Seller's Agent and will help you negotiate aggressively for the home you want.

5.) After your offer is accepted, your Buyer's Agent will make sure you have the proper inspections performed on the home and -- if necessary -- negotiate with the Seller's Agent for any needed repairs or revisions to the contract.

6.) Finally, your Buyer's Agent will help deal with the multitude of details and solve the inevitable problems that must be handled properly to ensure a successful closing.

7.) We close and you move into your new home!

The services of a buyer's agent  -- 618-791-8007 -- are provided to you at no charge.  How does that work?  Our fees are paid at closing by the seller of the home you ultimately decide to buy. It's really that simple.

WE LOVE TO HELP OUR BUYERS WITH NEW CONSTRUCTION HOMES AND REAL ESTATE IN MADISON COUNTY AND ST. CLAIR COUNTY, ILLINOIS

If you're looking for a new home, be sure you're using an agent.

You will have someone who acts as your advocate during the process and the homebuilder will pay the Buyer's Agent's fees, so our services cost you nothing. There are plenty of new home choices in communities across our region beginning as low as the $145,000 range.

Check out this blog post about someone who bought without the help of a buyer's agent and how much he overpaid.

HERE'S WHAT NANCY'S CLIENTS ARE SAYING:

"Nancy was great to work with. She worked hard to give us a lot of homes to look at, made smart comments along the way, and was nice enough to laugh at our jokes! She answered every question, took on every challenge and I ended up with a beautiful home that offered me a lot of what I was looking for. I was very pleased with Nancy and would highly recommend her."

--Kim D.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

I highly recommend Nancy and, as a matter of fact, she was recommended to me by a co-worker when he found out I was interested in moving into the Glen Carbon / Edwardsville area. Nancy was so responsive to my requests to see homes. At the time I was looking, many of the homes that met my requirements and price range were selling very quickly. I felt Nancy kept a very close eye on new listings and made sincere efforts to ensure that I was able to see the homes as soon as they were listed. In the end, I found a home I love in Glen Carbon and made a new friend in the area at the same time. --Kathleen McC. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "We were very happy with Nancy as our realtor. She truly had our best interest in mind and wasn't just interested in closing the deal. I remember at one point we were ready to pull the trigger and make an offer, but (with our permission) she showed us a few more houses that day to make sure we were 100% confident. In the end, we love our home and Nancy helped us get a good price." --Anne S. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "I was very pleased with Nancy. She was very professional. She helped us sell our home very quick. I would use her again for any other dealings I had in her area. If you want someone to help you sell and you don't know where to begin, Nancy is great for that. I would recommend her to any and all of my family and friends." --Shay K. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "Nancy is an incredible agent to work with. Not only is she knowledgeable about everything real estate entails, she is great at reading people and knowing how and when to communicate during the entire real estate process. She is also extremely responsive and even answered emails and questions when she was out of town. This was by far the least stressful home purchase we have been through and it was largely due to being informed and educated by our agent and knowing what was happening every step of the way. I would highly recommend Nancy for all of your real estate needs!!" --Dawn P. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "Nancy is professional, courteous, empathetic, diligent, humorous, and just flat-out awesome! Every single aspect of our home-sale was covered with Nancy - we had nothing to worry about. When we suddenly decided to move across the state to be near family, leaving the house behind, we felt confident in Nancy's abilities to handle everything from afar ~ and we were not disappointed. Getting two offers within two weeks of leaving... WOW. What down market? Nancy got us results, and made our home sale / move easy as pie. Thank you Nancy!!" --Meaghan H. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ When we were faced with a difficult selling situation, Nancy got our house under contract quickly and exceeded every expectation we had for a real estate agent. She's a real pro and we absolutely recommend her if you need to sell or buy. Thanks for everything, Nancy! --Layne and Jean H. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "We would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling house who is looking for a highly competent, professional agent with just the right personal touch. Once again, thank you very much for all your help." --Maria and Jay S. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "Nancy sold my house in Glen Carbon. Totally professional and competent in all aspects of the services she provided to me is the best way to describe Nancy." --Steve W. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ "Nancy is constantly educating us about the local real estate market and what is selling in Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Troy, and Collinsville. She is fun to talk with and makes sure we are kept informed through the whole process, always keeping our goals in mind. First time buyers should do themselves a favor and and ask her about easy steps to a new home. We'll never use another Realtor!" --Joyce and Bob K.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

"It only takes a moment to say thank you, but your help and thoughtfulness will be remembered for a long time. I don't know if we'd have made it through the home selecting and the buying process without your help." 

--Kathy & Bob

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

"I just wanted to personally thank you for making our experience as a first time buyer go so smoothly. I has no idea what I was doing...the only thing that I was positive about was that I wanted to live in  Collinsville.  Doing business with you made this a breeze and stress free. You are a pleasure to work with I will be sending anyone that is in the house buying market your way!

ATTENTION SIUE PARENTS

Nancy specializes in helping you find great homes for purchase for your Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville (SIUE) students.

Parents often buy homes in the Edwardsville or Glen Carbon region to save on dorm costs. Their student lives in the house with roommates for three, four or five years and the roommates' rent payments can cover some or all of the savvy parent's mortgage costs. This is especially cost effective for parents who have more than one child who will be attending SIUE.

Ask for a list of suitable three and four bedroom homes in your desired price range. At the end of the student's time at SIUE, Goshen Realty Group will place the house back on the market for the next parent or rental property investor.

You can't afford not to handle your student's housing needs in this way. Read more about homes currently for sale that would help your family find off campus housing for SIUE students.

DISTRESSED HOME OWNERS: YOU DO HAVE OPTIONS.

DON'T ALLOW A FORECLOSURE WHEN A SHORT SALE MAY BE A BETTER OPTION FOR YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE

Recently many Illinois residents who need to sell their homes have found themselves upside down in their mortgages. That means they owe more on their home than it will sell for in current market conditions. They may have bought it at the height of the market and have watched its value decrease since. Or they may have both a first and second mortgage on the property that they cannot handle due to hardship -- the loss of a job, health problems, medical bills, divorce or other family issues.

If you're a homeowner in this situation, don't wait until the bank forecloses on your property and destroys your credit rating. Call us today for a Short Sale Consultation. We can take a look at the details and help you decide if a short sale is right for you and better for your financial health. (A short sale occurs when a lender allows a property to be sold for less than is owed.) We are your Edwardsville Short Sale Realtor.
