Good things happen to good people!
It’s no secret that being a first-time home buyer in our current Seattle real estate market can be challenging. But Sarah is living proof that getting a home that you love, that is within your budget and in your preferred neighborhood IS possible.
Meet Sarah. Be like Sarah!
Sarah is a dream come true! She is smart, organized and responsive. One of the main reasons that Sarah was able to snag her dream home (and for a great price) is that she did all of the “hard work” before we even went house hunting. Sarah had already worked with her awesome lender to get pre-approved for her loan before we started house-hunting. She had been checking out homes online and stopping by some open houses so she had a feel for what her options were. Sarah took the time to chat with me about the home buying steps, what that looks like in this competitive market, and what we need to do when we find “the one”.
How it all went down:
Sarah and I had been looking at houses for a few weeks. We had seen a few decent places, and a handful of SCARY places. Then one day, out of the blue, a townhouse in her dream neighborhood came back on the market (it had been pending with another buyer, but that sale fell through at the last minute). In true Sarah style, she understood what a great option this was and was willing to make time THAT day to go see the place. And less than 24 hours after we saw the townhouse, we put in an offer, and got the offer accepted!
Fast forward 30 days….
Sarah had the smoothest home buying process of any client I have had in years. And it is all because she was prepared, informed and responsive. Be like Sarah!
Congrats Sarah! May this first home of yours bring you years of happiness. And lots of closet space ;).
