Exhibit A for why you hire a local buyer agent

Want to purchase a home in the McLean Hamlet? If you do and you are waiting for homes to hit Zillow, Redfin, or other internet sites before you learn about a home for sale, you may continue to miss out on opportunities to find your dream home.  The home at 8102 Birnam Wood Drive, which was not yet listed for sale, went under contract on June 5.  The home, which had a “Coming Soon” sign in the yard, had a list price of $925,000, and is scheduled to close on June 29.

This home underwent lots of work earlier this Spring, and the coming soon sign went in the ground over a week ago. It was obvious that the owners were preparing it to be sold. I walked past this home several times over the past week while the sign was in the yard and observed that it was well maintained home that would sell quickly.

This particular buyer may have found a great deal. In my experience, a home at a price of $925,000 in the McLean Hamlet, would have drawn lots of interest and possibly multiple offers.  There should be a happy buyer who is planning to move into the Hamlet this month who snapped a home up before other buyers had the opportunity. Nice work!
