You only get one chance to get it right when buying a home. You need someone by your side to avoid costly mistakes. Check out our tips below to save time and money!
1. Not getting pre-approved.
Step one in the home buying process is getting pre-approved. If you want the best rates, avoid the following:
- Buying a car – or any major purchases. You’ll get better rates if you don’t have as much debt.
- Moving money around – It may show a large deposit in one account, but also a withdrawal in another.
- Changing jobs – You’ll want to show you have security and stability.
2. Relying on an internet search instead of a qualified agent.
The internet is a great place to start looking for a home, but it won’t get you the best home for the best price. Our agents know the market and work with a large network. An agent will go through your criteria, your needs and wants, to match them with not only the houses on the market you’ll find in your internet search, but also the houses that have yet to come onto the market. An agent can not only find you the houses, but schedule showings and negotiate the best deals. If you’ve already started the buying process, it’s not to late to hire a great agent.
3. Not getting a home inspection
Home inspections protect you and your family. Mold, plumbing, structural damages, electrical issues are just some of the problems you could be purchasing. The only real way to get that information is by hiring a professional, licensed home inspector. Be sure you also get a good warranty to cover anything that may have been missed.
4. Getting wrapped up in the excitement
What’s more exciting than dreaming of the possibilities and searching for the perfect home for your family to live in? Home is where the heart is, but it can lead to mistakes in the home buying process. Usually it’s the first time home buyers that get swept up in the excitement of it all, but it can happen to the most experience of investors. It’s important to keep your emotions in check and focus on what you really need.

Helen Oliveri and her team represent the highest professional level of expertise and customer service skills. Helen’s knowledge of the current market helped us sell our house in a very short period of time. She not only knew the specific requirements of the market, but also handled the transaction with attention to detail to fulfill the needs of her clients. We will recommend Helen and her team to anyone looking for a qualified agent to sell their home.
Helen sold our home in only 12 days and we got an incredible price!! Helen and her team were absolutely amazing. Helen’s experience and knowledge of Hawthorn Woods area is incredible and she really knows her business. We were shocked at how soon our home sold and we contribute that success to Helen’s expertise in the Country Club. Communications was key for us and she and her team were outstanding!! We would highly recommend Helen. She is simply the best. We want to thank you and your team…
I felt as though I had a trusted friend by my side each and every step of the way while buying my very first home. Helen is honest and genuine, an invaluable trait in a friend, so you can imagine how pleased I was to find it in an agent! She answered all of my questions and explained the things I didn’t understand without making me feel silly or inferior. When the time comes, I won’t hesitate to entrust the sale of my home to Helen. Working with her was truly a pleasure!
The property that Helen listed and sold for us was our 6th home we have sold. Our experience was amazing. Helen is an outstanding broker, and knows her business better than any other realtor we have ever worked with. She is a top producer for a reason. I very highly recommend using Helen Olivieri as your broker/realtor when selling a home. She is outstanding at what she does.
Helen Oliveri is the best! Leave for vacation and house is sold, couldn’t have had any easier process as a seller! Thank you!
Helen and her team operates in a very professional and courteous manner. Everything was handled well from the beginning through the closing process. Would gladly recommend her services to anyone.
Helen was very knowledgeable, professional and a joy to work with on my home sale. They were available to answer questions and I was never asked to wait on hold. Great response time. Furthermore, they marketed my property immediately and we had showings immediately. I was sent the links to the online marketing. Very strong marketing skills on behalf of Helen and her team. We are very happy with the results we received. We will use Helen Oliveri next time!
Helen came into our house after we had it listed with other brokers for over a year. She was honest, sincere and very direct to the point on what needed to be done to our home sold in this market. Also, I can’t believe the amount of marketing they do. I can honestly say that she really surpassed our expectations of what a realtor should be. Getting sold in this market for 96% of asking in 33 days speaks for itself. We are very grateful we called Helen and thanks to all of you for a job well done…
