I work with sellers and buyers in the residential real estate market, along with all parties to a commercial transaction. The seller side of a transaction primarily involves valuation of the property based on comparable listings and recent sales using data analytics. This requires a detailed assessment of properties to show prospective buyers an accurate market value. Other steps involve documenting all aspects of a property that includes a detailed property description, utilities, taxes, floor plans, photos, videos, and legal documents. The buyer side of a transaction involves locating all properties in a particular geographical area that meets a client's criteria and using data analytics to select the best offer price. I also work with homeowners to file property assessment tax appeals to county and state government agencies.
Data-driven research is used to locate comparable properties based on age, square footage, construction, and proximity along with a detailed search report. This has involved custom development and regular enhancements to a comprehensive analytics platform along with web-based review tools scalable to index every residential home in Illinois for homeowners. This offers the benefit from instant evaluation of all comparable properties for reduced tax assessments.
