Are You a First Time Home Buyer Wanting to Buy a Condo in or Near Downtown Palatine IL?
Palatine is one of my favorite suburbs (I suppose because I used to live there and I still really enjoy it – and showing first time home buyers property there.) (Here are the boundary lines on Google maps) There’s an up-and-coming downtown area with live music (here is the entertainment schedule at Durty Nellies), Emmett’s Brewing Company (good micro-brews), Bauer’s Brauhaus (German restaurant which opened last year), and then there’s the yearly Palatine Street Fest.
Eurofresh Market has good food and great prices. And let’s not forget about Mike’s Bike shop or Dog and Suds (my favorite place to get my dog washed and groomed (including hair and nails cut) for just 24 bucks)
It is real easy to park anywhere in downtown Palatine – especially with the large parking ramp near the train station being added a few years ago…
Here are a few condos in Palatine worthy of consideration for any first time home buyer. My only suggestion is that — as a first time home buyer - if you use an agent – you use a company who represents first time buyers the majority of their time. Also best if a first time buyer uses an Exclusive Buyer Agent (an agent who is always on the buyer’s side – they and their company never represent sellers), and that the agent is a Certified Negotiation Expert.
