Real Estate Agent #201210229

Buying a home on your own can be a huge, even daunting challenge, especially if it's your first time buying a home on your own

Even if you've had these dream, this image in your mind, of how it will look and what it will feel like to live there, buying a home of your own is one of the most major decisions you'll ever make in your life.

Buying a Home of Your Own

And if you've been saving up responsibly for a long time, one of the big surprises might be that when it comes to pulling the trigger and buying a home of your own, you find it hard to commit.  One such reader found herself in this quantry when faced with spending those hard earned, carefully-socked-away dollars and going all in to make her life-time dream come true. That's when she turned to me at www.dreamhomesportland.com.

Olive Gallagher, Soldera Properties, Inc. there are other great experiences in life but none so grounding as home ownership. It's one that I believe most people wish they had strived for sooner.

Good morning Olive. Congratulations on your first blog post here in Active Rain. I just closed on a home for a buyer who is only 21 years old. His parents taught him the benefits of being a home owner from an early age. He had been saving money up since he was in high school and finally realized his dreams last week. It was awesome to be a part of it.
