I have lived in Naperville for 5 years and its a great place to live. I have many realtors in the area I work with, please call or email for their contact info. As for securing the mortgage, we can help as we deal directly with Fannie Mae and Ginnie Mae and fund the loans in our name. We aren't waiting around on the big banks to approve the deal. We staff our own underwriting department and get things done quick. You can call me at (630) 639-1081 and I can give you a preapproval the same day and help you find a quality realtor in the area.

Good afternoon Satish,

First steps:

Meet with a Local Mortgage Banker to get prequalified for mortgage financing. The Mortgage Banker will review all facets of your loan request to answer your questions with regards to the types of loans and maximum loan amounts you could qualify for.

Line up a Home Inspector. A good home inspector will scare the heck out of you: that's what you pay him for! But you'll concentrate on the fundamentals of the property: roof free of leaks, plumbing, heating and electrical up to code and in good working order. Again, when you make an offer and you have your Home Inspector ready to go, your offer will be considered with much more interest by a Seller because you truly have your "ducks in a row" and your preparation demonstrates your serious attitude about conducting the purchase transaction in a timely manner.

Find an experienced Local Realtor who works in your desired shopping area. A serious pro Realtor will refuse to show you homes until you are Prequalified for mortgage financing. Don't take offense! That Realtor doesn't want you to be disappointed and wants you to have a smooth experience as you shop for your new home.

Put together your Team of real estate professionals and shop 'til you drop!

This first step is to interview two or three agents and pick one to work with that will find you the perfect home.

Today's market is competitive and you want to make sure you pick an agent that is full service and full time that will meet all your needs.

There is low inventory right now and the right agent is crucial to a successful close.

Hi Satish,

Take a look at this home. It's close proximity to the Naperville Metra Station, I-88, and the Freedom Commons. It also feeds into the acclaimed Discrict 203. Is this along the lines of what you're looking for?
