Second Chances in the Real Estate World

Real Estate Agent with Ask Gina & Company with Pearson Smith Realty

When looking to buy a home, the amount of options can seem endless. There are many aspects to consider, and it's difficult to determine if any given home is the best option available. After all, there are so many homes available for purchase, it's easy to think there is always a better option. For Karen and Dogan, this became a real issue when looking to settle in Leesburg.

Karen and Dogan loved with the first home they viewed from the moment they stepped through the door. The home had everything they were looking for, and for a more than reasonable price. Sounds great, right? Unfortunately, when the first home is nearly perfect, it can be hard to resist looking at other available homes. After all, you never know if one of them could be even better than the first one!

That often isn't the case though -- sometimes the perfect home is the first one you see, and you have to jump at the opportunity to make it yours. For Karen and Dogan, this possibility became all too real. While they viewed other homes, the first home went under contract, missing the chance to make an offer.


It was a tough break, and Karen and Dogan were sure they would not be able to find a home at the same level as the one they missed out on. Team AGC, however, knew the market is an ever-changing landscape, with new houses coming to the market every day (especially in the Spring!). We redoubled our efforts to find the perfect home, and soon enough, we found a Leesburg home even better than the first.

The perfect home, take 2!

Karen and Dogan learned two important lessons about the real estate market during this purchase. Well, more accurately, they learned one lesson two times. Firstly, they learned that the market moves fast when simply viewing more homes caused them to miss an opportunity. They learned the same lesson again soon after that when they quickly found another home that was also perfect. Seeing their joy as they walked through their new home for the first time was one of the many magical moments that Team AGC loves to experience in real estate. If you're looking to buy or sell soon, contact us at 703-574-3478, and you can snatch up the perfect home just like Karen and Dogan -- even if it's on the second chance!

Happy homeowners at settlement!

Nothing like a happy ending, we have done some backup offers and sometimes even that can work, the first buyer goes away.... glad your team was able to help out this great couple, Endre

Agreed! Never know what will happen until everything is signed. Always a joy to get clients a home that they thought was off the table! -Gina
