Helping Dreams Come True
Robin Has Stopped Paying Her Landlord's Mortgage!
Working with repeat clients is always especially satisfying. This past week that satisfaction was magnified when I had the privilege of helping one of my past clients Robin (from 5 years ago) purchase a townhouse in Guilford. Aside from reinforcing my "feeling a little older", it was wonderful to be the recipient of her trust. Buying a home whether it's for the first, second or third time is an important commitment for all of us.
I believe the reason many people don't buy a home is because they don't know they can - like my client Robin. She earned a good income and wanted to move out of her apartment and into a place of her own but it was a challenge to locate a home she could comfortably afford. Single family homes weren't an option since the cost of a single family home in the towns she was interested in would be out of Robin's price range.
Robin was prequalified for a loan so I got some basic information from her and began a search for condos. She was thrillled when we found a number of towhouses in a complex in Guilford with lake access. Within two weeks we found a lovely end unit with plenty of room for entertaining and with lots of privacy. We immediately wrote the purchase offer in my truck and within two days the seller accepted her offer and now Robin has a "Home, Sweet Home" and a sweet $8,000 first time homebuyer tax credit.
P. S. Robin didn't know homeownership was within her reach. Do you know someone in the same situation? Please give me a call to discuss the best way to let them know about my service.
