I Bought A House!

That’s right…I am now a homeowner! My fiance and I just closed on our first home and couldn’t be happier. From the beginning, we set out to find something in a great location, near our place of employment and families and something big enough to grow into (and a good school district-although we’re not at THAT point in our lives yet!).

On our hunt, we came across one we thought would be good. We went in, decided it was the one, drew up an offer, negotiated it out, and within 24 hours, we were under contract! The next step was applying for a loan, and getting inspections done, both of which we did immediately. The inspection turned up some big ticket items for repair, so we were skeptical at that point. We negotiated out the repairs and continued on the Home Buying journey with that house. We obtained a loan commitment, got our insurance and moved the process along. We did a walk thru (how different the house looked without the seller’s things in it!) and were ready to close. There was a delay to close, by a few days (frustrating!) but we finally closed and the house is ours! Now the work begins…renovations!

As a realtor, I have been helping clients from start to finish (and beyond), but now I know what it’s like to go through the motions. Had I not been in real estate, I would definitely have sought out professional assistance from an agent. It’s a daunting task, and to have someone who knows the process and is there every step of the way is a huge help!
