Buyer Services

When you work with Jen to purchase a home, you can count on her to be by your side every step of the way.

In the initial consultation, Jen will LISTEN to your needs and wants for your new home, as well as discussing the price range you're looking in. This can be done in person, over the phone or even via online chat if you prefer.

Mortgage preapproval is important! Do you know how much you can afford to spend each month? Jen can work with you to find a mortgage broker to get you preapproved. This will help you to determine the price range of home you can afford, and prepares you to make a strong offer when you do find the home of your dreams.

Now the fun part: looking at homes! Jen has access to a variety of online tools to search available properties, and can give you information about everything currently on the market with any broker. She can set up an automatic search so you are immediately emailed when something new comes on the market that fits your criteria. When you're ready to see homes in person, Jen can schedule showings for you through an online system to make the best use of your available time, and will accompany you to each property.

You've found the home of your dreams? Great! Now the work really begins. Jen will work to analyze your selected property to determine its true market value. She will help you make a competitive offer, and her creative negotiation skills will ensure that your needs are met in all terms of the contract. Speaking of the contract, Jen has an in-depth understanding of Indiana real estate contracts and will make sure you know exactly what you are signing.

Once your offer is accepted, Jen will do everything necessary to bring your transaction to closing.  There are home inspections to schedule, title work to obtain, appraisals to review... but you won't have to stress over any of these things.  Jen will lead you through the process and work hand in hand with your lender to meet your end goal: moving in to your new home!

 

Seller Services

Did you know that 90% of home buyers start their search online?

When you're ready to sell your home, Jen will work with you to create a customized, comprehensive action plan using the industry's best internet marketing strategies to make buyers fall in love with your home before they ever walk through the door.

Jen's services start with a complimentary market analysis to determine your home's market value. After analyzing current market conditions in your area, Jen will work together with you to set a price that you're comfortable with. Maybe some repairs are needed, or changes could be made in the layout of furniture to better stage your home? Jen's professional expertise will help you present your home with the greatest appeal to buyers. She can also refer you to reliable service providers for assistance if needed.

Now it's time to put your home on the market! Jen Poskin is more than just the name on the sign in your yard. Jen hires a professional photographer to capture photos she uses to present your home in the best possible light online. She will ensure that your home isfeatured on top real estate websites: REALTOR.com, Trulia, Zillow, Yahoo!, and HGTV's FrontDoor.com. Jen will create a customized property website so buyers can easily locate your home online. Looking for exposure in the Illinois market? Jen's listings are featured in the real estate section on ChicagoTribune.com. In addition, Jen's personal blog and Facebook page will promote your home in the social media marketplace.

While your home is on the market, Jen believes in COMMUNICATION! She will be accessible and accountable for the activity on your property at all times, and will keep you informed from start to finish.

When an offer is presented on your home, Jen will negotiate on your behalf to ensure the best possible terms for you. Working hand in hand with the buyer's agent through to closing, Jen will do everything necessary to help you hear that word you've been waiting for:SOLD!
