First Time Home Buyer Success in Wheaton, MD

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

My first-time home buyer started out looking for a townhome but dreaming of a single family with a yard for the four-legged family member. Options were extremely limited, we looked at a home with roaches, another one with framing issues, a third one with foundation repairs looming.. while a little TLC was welcome, major issues were not, so we kept looking. 

I always tell my buyers to stay positive, the just-right-for-you house will come along and will work out. As long as you are prepared and realistic and have patience, we will make it happen. 

And we did! We found a great option that checked most of my buyers boxes, and I was able to get her a great deal! Her new home was originally listed at 469K. I negotiated a sales price of 430K (comps were well above that number) and, after the inspections, a 4K credit at closing despite an as-is clause in our original offer. You just never know what's possible until you try! Happy buyer, happy agent!

Welcome home to Wheaton Hills, Betsy! I know you'll turn this blank canvas into something amazing. Wishing you many happy years in your new home!

Hello Andrea - each prospective buyer has their own reality test when it comes to a fixer upper.  Opportunity or money pit?   It appears your clients were patient as they were tested.  Congratulations on this recent Wheaton Maryland real estate transaction.  I like the angle of the property in the photography in this post too.
