I love working with first time home buyers. The feeling through out the transaction all the way to closing and after is so rewarding. Today, a young couple I have worked with for 2 and a half years finally got an accepted offer on the perfect home. A bank owned, brand new never lived in 4 bedroom home.
This young couple has waited patiently - they have driven streets, they watch their email and they knew exactly what they could afford regardless of what they qualified for (lender would loan more than they wanted to spend).
We saw the home come on the market last month and made a low offer on it... we held our breath - the bank would not budge....they felt the activity they had would bring them a higher offer. Guess what - it did not, they had to lower the price.... and again we made a run at this home and again the bank would not budge.
Monday the home had yet another price reduction.... lower than what we had offered not once but twice.... and guess what we did not offer full price - and guess what - we got the house.
Patience, teamwork and persistence has paid off - I am thrilled - now to get through the Typical Central Oregon Contingencies. The Bank has already provided the septic info, well report and we are well on our way to a successful closing.
