Keep this in mind – The most money you’ll ever make (or lose) in 15 minutes is based on the final round of negotiations when buying or sellingWhile there are a myriad of issues that will help a buyer (savvy use of today’s great mortgage rates, etc.), the final negotiations on price tend to yield the best results. Not only will that save you money on your purchase price; but that will affect your monthly payments for the duration of your ownership; your property tax (to some extent assessed value is based on purchase price) and your transfer tax (directly based on purchase price). 

That’s where the value of an experienced, knowledgeable Chicago Realtor comes into play.  He or she knows the comps, may know history on the building (or unit), and can help you interpret days on market, price history, price drops, etc. 

So when it’s time to jump into (or out of) the game,  use a pro.  And look before you leap!
