Mortgage and Lending with SWBC Mortgage 410-960-2061 NMLS 196068


Once upon a time there was a lovely young couple looking for a new home around Baltimore, Maryland. They were about to have a new addition to their family and decided it was time to stop renting and find their forever home

They knew where they wanted to live.   They found a fairy Godmother to help them in their search.   This Godmother wasn't like the ones you find in most fairytales.  She didn't drive a coach, but a Lexus; didn't carry a wand, but an IPAD; her dresses didn't sparkle, but almost always wears shades of chocolate instead.  She was Margaret of Rome.

The Fairy Godmother told these first time buyers that they should hail the reputable Mortgage Mama to speak of the possibilities. They had saved much, acted honorably with those whom they had borrowed, and worked long and hard.  They had everything going for them!  They didn't need any magic to borrow a prince’s ransom and had no interest in a king's ransom, they just needed to find the site of their future homestead. 

They searched high and low.  They found homes that smelled to high heaven and they found homes in disrepair.  They found a home that would do, but were outbid.  They searched some more.  They found another home, still not their dream, but now heavy with child, placed an offer.  Outbid again and filled with disappointment. 

A home in the land of her parents was listed for sale.  "It will be many years before we can afford a home in this land." said he.  They watched, and dreamed of the day they could own a home similar to the one in which she had grown.  As expected, the PERFECT home went under contract and they continued their search.

One day, the Fairy Godmother got a call from a friend whose friend had a home for sale that the contract had fallen through.  The Fairy Godmother knew it was the PERFECT home for her special buyers and knew the list price was out of their comfort zone.  Since the cost to borrow had recently lessened , the Fairy Godmother called Mortgage Mama to run some new numbers.  At the list price it was close, but within the realm of the possible should the desire be there. 

Oh, the desire was there. A true, and wonderful desire.  An offer was placed, negotiated and accepted. The young couple was OVER THE MOON!

First Time Home Buyer Maryland

Today that lovely young couple settled on their new castle.  Those that previously occupied the castle (for 34 years!) are happy to know that the young couple would love the home they had loved for so long.  The sellers will be moving temporarily to the land of the sun, to a parcel in the land of Florida while their new castle in the County of Howard is constructed.

This is such a perfect way to end a day. This Fairy Tale post  is one of the best I have read!

Maybe I am a bit biased being named the Fairy Godmother. Hope many of the readers are experiencing this kind of joy and satisfaction in their  real estate business because.... Settlements Are Boring At This Age...




Bippity, Boppity Boo!

Thanks Bridget for being such an important member of my team
