Thinking of buying in Chicago but live out of the country? We’re here to assist you.
We specialize in international buyers, many of whom never come to the US during the search or buying process. Instead, we communicate via email or phone to determine your property requirements. From there we can Skype you through properties matching your criteria or take videos of the properties which we upload to YouTube for you to watch at your convenience.
Since Illinois is an attorney closing state, we will connect you with the top Real Estate attorney in Chicago who regularly works with our international buyers to ensure a smooth transaction. We’ll assist you with everything from wiring your purchase funds to the US ahead of time to ensure enough time for your funds to clear the US banking and inspection process to arranging for a Power of Attorney to be signed at the US embassy in your country so you don’t have to attend closing in the US.
Should you desire to rent the property out after closing, we’d be happy to find a renter for you as well as arrange for you to work with a professional property manager who can oversee the day to day details of your rental, collect the rent payments and handle any repairs or maintenance issues.
