I just picked up a contract for a buyer that was accepted without change by the sellers.
These first time buyers had tried twice to get a home that they liked but were not willing to pay what was close to the asking price. After doing the comps on both of the previous properties it was obvious they were not close to market price.
It was a long journey for my buyers but it was well worth it to see how excited they were to find their dream home at a reasonable price.
On more than one occasion I had a negative thought like "is this really going to work out?" This is the sixth buyer I have helped find a home in the past three months. They all had there challenges but in the end it is so rewarding to see people get a home for a fair price and with a reasonable payment.
I am still puzzled why any one would not want to buy a home right now. It is just so easy to afford the payments. This couple bought a 2500 square foot home for less than most of the 1200 square foot homes are renting.
