Special offer

the heart does grow fonder...

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United, Realtors

I must apologize for my absence folks, but I do have a valid reason why I have not put words on the screen... Well, now that I think about it, probably not too good of a reason, but I digress...

My wife and I have recently purchased a new home. Yeah!

So, during this normal process I have found myself looking at the other side of the coin. Normally, I am the one telling the buyer to schedule this, or call these people, and now I am doing these things. Let me tell you folks, if you haven't bought or sold a personal property in awhile, you should just to remind yourself of how things are on the other side of the phone, or table. 

I found myself actually confused as to how to make my own offer. I know, I do this all the time, what could be so difficult? Nothing, but it felt like everything I did or decision we made was somehow just not quite right. I even went so far as to chew the ear off of my fellow office agent on more than one occasion. Some of these questions went like this: Am I filling this standard contract out correctly? Are you sure I should do this? No, I don't know that information, how should I find it?

Crazy stuff!

In this job I have pretty much taken for granted the fact that I could fill out a normal contract in my sleep, not anymore.

Maybe that's a good thing. I know it is.  Anytime you can learn from any situation, good or bad, you walk away a winner. In this case, I get to own a new home. (If I remembered to sign my name on that last page...)
