This weekend was absolutely gorgeous! Sunshine, low humidity, great for being outdoors. I thoroughly enjoyed this weather. We are expecting more of the same for the remainder of the week with some rain in the forecast. I should have taken a picture or two to include in this post. Next time...
Saturday I met with a client who just won a HUD bid. We were rejoicing together because this contract coming through was so unexpected, and the property was one the client did not initially like. The client had a lot of wants, and we looked at a lot of homes and submitted a lot of offers.
She wanted a 'move in' ready home. She got a 'move in' ready home. The carpet needs a deep cleaning or replacement, and there is a need to paint. Add in a refrigerator and she is ready to go. She is very happy about these minor issues.
She wanted a home in Anneewakee Trails subdivision in Douglasville. She got a home in Anneewakee Trails subdivision in Douglasville. Her front door has a comforting view of the horizon. Beautiful blue skies with hints of clouds over the weekend.
She wanted a home that was not impacted by the flooding in 2009. She got a home that was not in the flood of 2009 and is not in a flood zone period.
She wanted a home priced under $70,000 with at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms. She got a home priced at $68,000 with four bedrooms, two and half bathrooms. The property taxes are extremely low - under a $1000 annually.
She wanted a home built no older than the year 2000. This home was built in 2003 and has about 2000 square feet of space.
We went through a lot to get to this place with her. We submitted 15 bids on HUD properties alone. We have been working together for a year and a half, and there were points when I was ready to say 'forget it,' but we hung in there and now we are preparing for the reward.
I love it when the client gets what she wants and more.
