Congrats on the move over here. I grew up outside Dublin and have been in Chicago since 92. I know all the good spots for an ex-pat to hang out in. I also worked in both the Chicago Hilton and Towers and the Palmer House Hilton. Now the most important part of your question was not answered. GOLF. All the other agents missed that !!! Apart from real estate you hit the nail on the head for my other passion.
Without getting into too much detail and asking a ton of questions back and forth I would be glad to meet up and discuss your specific needs further. I always feel a sit down gets more accomplishe than a string of emails. If you think you would like to work with me just give me a time next week that wiil fit your scheule best, and we can go from there.
I hope we get a chance to talk further. Best regards,
Jameson Sotheby's International Realty
While it's a great buyer's market out there, there are many considerations for foreign buyers:
Ability to obtain a loan
Ability and willingness to maintain your own property
and then it moves into the typical things about location, types of purchase
Whiel some rents are starting to move up,
Rentals offers flexiblity of quick move in and the ability to move in about a year (some rentals allow shorter term leases). The downside is that you have less flexibilty in how your use and decorate your property and require a good relationship with your landlord.
The various neighborhoods in Chicago offers different atmospheres, vibes and rental and products to purchase and there are price differences within each neighborhood.
If I can help you explore these options further before or while you are here, please feel free to contact me: I have experience working, along with my team in all neighborhoods in the City and many of the suburban neighborhoods and I have office close to the Hilton downtown. In addition, we have experience with relocations for buyers and renters.
